Instagram is another great source simply because its fun. Best place to show your lifestyle to attract prospects. Although some have used Instagram quite successfully I find it to be hard to relate to people – but this is my personal opinion. People are getting great results with instagram. This must be because I am a 1-on-1 kind of person. Best for the introverted type of person. Here are some stats;
– About 180 millions users on the network with 1.6 billion averages likes per day.
– Good amount of traffic in the social media space.
