3.) Summary
Recap of the Introduction.

Let’s apply it to the real world, shall we?

Title: Using Instagram for Your Business or Blog.

Introduction:
Instagram is a social media photo app that you can download to your mobile devices.  It allows you to highlight your business/brand in a visual capacity.  Instagram is owned by Facebook that has a very interactive and engaging audience.  If you have a visual product or service, Instagram is the perfect social media tool for you to help further develop your brand voice.

3 Key Points:

  • Instagram allows you to highlight visual components of your brand in an engaging atmosphere.  If you have products great, if you are a service industry think of ways to highlight different features such as staff, tools, processes or capture behind the scenes footage.
  • This app also allows you to lift the curtain to your business and create a transparency with your marketing.
  • In addition, it allows you to connect with your audience on a different level, creating an environment to build trust and develop relationships.

Summary:
Therefore you can see that Instagram is a great visual social media tool.  You can use Instagram to further develop a strong brand voice and connect with your audience in a fun digital environment.

See?  Simple!  I do caution you to think about word crafting.  By having such an easy blogging structure, it is just as easy to go stale.  Make sure you insert some personal flair into your writing, so you do not bore your readers.

Happy Blogging!
