About a billion people (serious stat, not hyperbole) use the platform every month. 500 million people use the platform's stories feature every day. This year, Instagram is expected to reach 112 million users in the US alone and it's the fastest growing social media platform in Canada.

Instagram is an ideal platform to help people enter your world and assist them in getting to know you and your business. Whether you have the type of business that is very visual like a restaurant or a florist shop or you have a business that is service-based but not so visual like a plumbing company or tax preparation, there are plenty of ways to get more business through his popular platform.

    Today, as a business professional, you're expected to give a certain amount of your knowledge away for free. It's simply the professional standard. While we can argue whether you should do this or not, the truth is much of your competition is probably already offering free content and other benefits of their knowledge.

Or they may come to your site, see there are no free resources, and leave immediately. Which one of those sites do you think Google will rank higher as being more valuable? Read more
