Did You Know That Instagram Is Owned by Facebook? They Keep It Quiet.

Many people are completely oblivious to the fact that Instagram is owned by Facebook, including many millennials and many people even here in “digital” San Francisco.

Instagram Advertising Expert

They believe that it is not “cool” to use Facebook, but that Instagram is fine. Well, here’s the thing: you and I won’t tell them that Instagram ads are managed by the Facebook platform, so they will continue to believe your Instagram ads are “cool” and therefore take more notice of them.

Let’s face it, it’s only a matter of opinion. Instagram – cool. Facebook – not cool. But if you want to advertise to those people you are going to have to do it on Instagram because they are not going to be on Facebook. That’s why you need an Instagram ads expert, here in San Francisco, the Bay Area, or elsewhere in California. Let’s be honest: from your point of view you don’t care who owns what, as long as your ads get results, and why should you? Lots of people are still blissfully unaware that YouTube is owned by Google and has been for many years. Or that, for example, Reddit is owned by Advance Publications which is the parent company of Conde Nast.

These companies change hands all the time, and for huge sums of money, but all you are concerned about as a businessman or woman is whether or not your advertising campaigns make money or don’t make money. Really, who cares who owns what?

A Minefield for Your Expert Witness

However, online advertising can be a minefield for any expert witness, unless you know what you are doing. You can get clicks for pennies that don’t produce any results, or you can get clicks that do produce results but cost a small fortune. OK, if you are paying for clicks and not getting them then it is not costing you anything. However, it is hardly driving your business forward, is it? And the ultimate objective is always to move on and make maximum profits. At the same time, you don’t want to get it wrong and spend a huge amount on some forms of online advertising only to find that they are unsuccessful.

Unfortunately, that is very easy to do unless you have your wits about you. Or more importantly, you understand how and where and when to advertise in order to get the best results. That is something which takes experience, which is why many of my clients regard me as the greatest thing since sliced bread because of my years of experience as an Instagram ads expert, San Francisco. Well, perhaps not the greatest thing since sliced bread, but just the greatest thing since they started to advertise on Instagram.

Like anything else, advertising on Instagram is a skill, and one with which I can help you.
