Hi Andy,
Great tips on Instagram, call to action is one of the most important
steps in your marketing and you always have to have call to action it makes
it easy for your visitors.
Thanks for sharing!

Hi Andy, using the location field for calls for action is an excellent idea. I normally prefer to read rather than watch as many videos contain too much padding and take too long so I like your short, to the point, videos too.

and 15 seconds is short and to the point 🙂 When you look at how people scroll through Instagram you have to be really on point to get any text based message across.

Thanks Andy

Hi Andy,

Thanks for the great idea. I’m still learning Instagram little by little. I couldn’t quite hear your video but I believe it’s my computer dying a slow death.

So, I went to your Instagram page/section or whatever you call it and then I could see what you meant. I do try to engage with people and share content some at night before bed but I need to learn a lot more about Instagram.

Thanks for this great tip.

Hi Andy, what a coincedence (spelling?) that I was just checking my Instagram this evening and was thinking to myself how much better I like it than FB. It seems to be quicker. Thank you for the information. I will implement a Call to Action in one of my Instagram posts and see what happens.
