How To Make Sales On Instagram?

Honestly, we can’t help but feel impatient. If a website takes too long to load, you might as well forget about making a purchase. Thankfully, Instagram is working on making buying less of a hassle with their new features. With these upgrades, marketers can quickly turn social media users who are just scrolling into paying customers.

Which Instagram functions, then, should you prioritise if you want to boost sales?

Product-Based Blogs

After initial testing in the United States, Instagram expanded the availability of shoppable posts to more countries in March 2018. Brands may now add tags to their organic in-feed postings that direct consumers to a website where they can learn more about the product, see its pricing.

Customers can have an easy buying experience with any business, big or little, thanks to this function. Your consumers will appreciate the additional details and the simple link to your website. Make sure your consumers are always seeing new products they can buy by using Instagram’s shoppable tag on all posts that feature your products.

Retailable Tales

After only six months, Instagram brought shoppable tags to Stories, which functioned in the same way as shoppable posts. One of the most used functions of the app, “Stories,” may now be tagged with shoppable products so that users can directly buy them.

Over 500 million people use Instagram Stories every day, and many of them check their Stories before their feed. Any company can instantly attract consumers’ attention, target them with product information, and drive ecommerce purchases by tagging shoppable Stories.

Stores on Instagram

Instagram launched ‘Shops’ in May in response to the decline in business sales caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. The ‘View Shop’ tab on a brand’s profile takes the consumer to a full-screen version of the brand’s online store, where they can purchase items directly.

This is just another perk of the app that keeps customers engaged and may even boost conversion rates as a result. Customers can access their Shopping Bag, Wish List, and Recently Viewed items from your Instagram Shop, which automatically populates with any products you’ve marked as shoppable.

Instagram’s checkout feature will be available to all companies soon. The ‘View on Website’ option has been removed and the Instagram purchasing experience has been simplified even further with the introduction of Checkout on Instagram, which is now only available in the United States.

Shopping Menu

A new ‘Shop Tab’ has replaced the notifications tab on Instagram, following a trial period that began in July. This moves Instagram Shops from the Explore page to the new, more prominent location on the main screen.

According to a survey by Salesforce, online orders from social media platforms surged by 84% in the third quarter. Because of the Shop Tab’s more prominent placement, Instagram users are more likely to engage with it, which could lead to more sales for your business.

Instagram Australia hosted the first ever shopping event that was only available on Instagram to mark the debut of the Shop Tab. Over fifty Australian firms participated in InstaNight’s one-night-only promotions and product drops on December 3.
