Do More With Your Instagram
Tools That Instagram is hiding from you! 💯
E-commerce is a significant and growing part of global retail. Online sales accounted for 14.1% of worldwide retail sales in 2019, a figure that is forecasted to reach 22% by 2023 (Statista, 2019). The stats agree: even in these uncertain times, e-commerce is thriving. In fact, the global state of affairs appears to be contributing to online retail growth. 60% of shoppers say they’ve done more shopping online during this time, including 6% who shopped online for the first time ever (Shopify, 2020). It seems online shopping is part of the “new normal”, and this trend doesn’t show any signs of stopping. In fact, 53% of North American shoppers said the pandemic has changed the way they’ll shop going forward. With its inherent convenience and increasingly attractive options, online shopping is here to stay.
As consumer demand for online shopping increases, brands are responding. With e-commerce fast becoming a crucial part of organizations globally, digital marketers are searching for ways to integrate social media channels such as Instagram into marketing strategies for online products. The issue with Instagram in particular is the platform’s many rules around who can add links to posts and where. Unless you’re posting a paid ad or have gone through the extensive process of setting up shoppable posts, there is no way to add links to posts. To add swipe up links to Instagram stories, you have to be a verified account or a business profile with more than 10,000 followers. These rules restrict the ability of e-commerce businesses to convert on Instagram and drive Instagram traffic directly to their website. The solution? AiSchedul.
