Instagram for Business: A #CMWorld Twitter Chat with Robert Katai

Instagram is hot right now. Vibrant imagery. Stories. IGTV. Users are heading to the platform to be inspired by content created not only by family and friends but brands too.

Don’t believe me?

Over 500 million Instagram accounts worldwide are active daily. And 80% of accounts follow a business. Today, it’s not a question of whether you should be using Instagram, but how you should be using it.

So how can brands expand their reach and best drive results? We went to Bannersnack Content Marketing Manager and CMI blog contributor Robert Katai.

We had a fast-paced #CMWorld Twitter chat with Robert, as he and many members of our community shared their experiences with Instagram. A look at two of our most-talked about questions is below. For more tweets and responses from the discussion, check out our Twitter Moment.
