Instagram Analytics and Profiles Improve for Businesses

Tech Crunch
Instagram has had a few updates recently and their next one is due to help out the businesses that use their service. Not only will they be able to create a profile with contact buttons and maps, but they'll also have improved analytics with a lot more detail.

The business profiles were introduced to a few users earlier this month and they're basically the Instagram equivalent to a Facebook business page. The pages mostly look like a personal Instagram page so you won't need to learn to navigate something new but they also have a little white contact button. If you tap on that you can email the business or find directions to the business. Both of these aspects are useful as they allow Instagram users to pick up more business generally, especially if the business can only accept inquiries by email. The directions are also practical for smaller local businesses who need to pick up more customers. Not all users can access the business profiles yet, but they are being rolled out slowly.

Now we have more information on the analytics improvements that Instagram have been making. The analytics are known as Insights and look into two separate sections. The follower demographics insight looks into user demographics including things like user age and location through graphs. This could be helpful when it comes to businesses posting content as they can aim it at users of a particular age range or from a particular area. In addition to this, they also allow you to see how many followers you gain on an hourly or daily basis, which could be useful for working out which of your posts work best.
The post analytics section will show you the reactions to individual posts. This includes things like impressions, clicks through and basically everything you expect to see on the analytics of a business. There is also a follower activity section that will allow businesses to see when their followers are mostly online so they know when to post.

This isn't everything that Instagram has improved for business but it's most of it. Analytics public launch is expected to be in a few months and I expect the business pages will be released to the entire public around the same time.
