  2. 2. Adverts coming soon to Instagram Adverts in Instagram Adverts will look like an Instagram photo but can be distinguished from user posted content by the word “Sponsored” which will be displayed on the top right hand corner. Users can give feedback on what they thought of the on the advert by selecting the “more” button in the bottom right hand corner. It is being predicted that later down the line, Instagram may introduce the ability to click on the ad and be redirected to a specified URL where the product or service can be bought, much like in the same way Pinterest works. This could be extremely beneficial to marketers by increasing conversions and driving direct website sales. www.trimaxsolutions.com Social Media Marketing Adverts coming soon to instagram
