Start with the Basics

Instagram marketing is really an ideal way to promote products, services, or to increase the popularity of your page. So, ‘what is perceived by eyes’ works better for your page. If the profile is beautiful and has some knowledge, your casual visitors will turn into potential customers in no time. 

Resultantly, you have a positive effect on your account’s traffic, i.e., you get an increased number of followers.
