Over the past couple of months, Instagram has allowed a variety of business types to advertise on a self-serve basis. With strong initial results, Facebook® announced they will open ad buying on Instagram  to businesses of all sizes, worldwide as of today, September 30, 2015. Advertisers alike will now have the opportunity to reach a new and highly engaged audience of 400 million at scale and showcase products, services, or apps in a visually inspirational way.

In just the first few months of launch, Kenshoo clients have already seen a 2.5 times higher CTR than the industry average for social marketing in Q2 2015. Instagram also shared that 97% of campaigns have generated significant lift in ad recall with a 17 point average ad recall lift; 2.8 times higher ad recall than Nielsen norms.
