Instagram Advertising

According to the latest data, there were 1.1 million active Instagram users in Sri Lanka, which accounted for 5.4 % of its entire population. If your brand doesn’t have an Instagram presence, it’s missing out on thousands of daily interactions with potential customers.

Build Your Audience in Instagram

Instagram is the second-largest social network by far, with nearly 1.5 billion daily active users. In Sri Lanka, there are 1 million Instagram users in June 2020, with this number increasing by more than 31.9% since this time last year.

Instagram’s popularity is quickly gaining in Sri Lanka, especially among young audiences due to its intuitive mobile user experience and engaged communities. The photo-centric nature of the platform makes it one of the world’s most used mobile platforms. If that’s not enough, being owned by Facebook means businesses that advertise through Instagram have access to the most robust targeting features on the Internet.

Statistics show that 75% of Instagram users take action on ads that they see on their news feed, while over a third of Instagram users have used the platform to purchase a product online. Businesses who create effective ads and target them at relevant audiences have the perfect tool to increase website traffic, conversions, and extend the visibility of your brand's visual content.
