Instagram’s core strategies haven’t changedHow Instagram Tactics Change but Strategies Stay the Same

Since its launch back in 2010, Instagram has continued to reign as one of the most popular social media platforms of all time. One billion people use Instagram each month, and although the platform often releases new features, it has stayed very true to its origins.

Instagram is about so much more than sharing photos and videos with friends and family. It has become a vital tool for businesses that leverage Instagram’s features to reach new audiences and engage with existing customers.

Jenn Herman is an Instagram Expert and the world’s forefront blogger on Instagram marketing. She claims that although small things have changed (the introduction of Instagram Reels, for example), the platform’s core strategies have not changed in years. You can still use the same core strategies to help grow your account and gain a following.
