A Comprehensive Guide to Advertising on Instagram

Instagram is an online and mobile social network for photo and video sharing with more than 500 million monthly active users worldwide. Users can share photos and videos publicly and privately on the Instagram app and through other social networking platforms such as Twitter, Tumblr or Facebook. Instagram provides a platform to tell visual stories through various ad formats, and many advertisers have seen this channel yielding higher ROI in comparison to their other advertising campaigns. Instagram started out with photos that were square shaped but now is open to pictures in any aspect ratio as well as videos with up to 90 seconds.

For Advertisers, Instagram is a fantastic platform to tell a company’s story in a visual and engaging way. Successful campaigns do not sell products or advertise big discounts but bring a product’s or brand’s authentic heart and soul to life. Advertisers have to carefully balance the information and the inspiration value of their campaigns to encourage the community to like and share their ads. Since Instagram was acquired by Facebook in 2012, the advertising platforms merged and most of the advertising and targeting options are the same for both platforms. Similar to Facebook ads, to run ads on Instagram, you’ll need a Facebook Page for the brand or product you are promoting.

Getting started is quick and easy.

Since Instagram uses the same powerful advertising tools as Facebook, you can set up, run and track campaigns in the same way as for Facebook ads. If you’re new to advertising on Instagram or even Facebook, here’s how to get started.

1. Create a business Page and profile
You must have a Facebook Page to run ads and create a free business profile on Instagram. If you don’t have one yet, create a page.

2. Set up your ad
Select your ad objective, target audience and ad format within Ads Manager or Power Editor.

3. Determine your budget
Decide how long your ads will run for and what budget you’re comfortable with spending.

4. Publish
Now that your ads are ready to go, click Publish. You’ll receive a notification when your ads have been approved and are ready to run.

What ad types does Instagram offer?

Instagram’s ad options can be classified based on what the ads look like and what objectives they have. All Instagram ads will be placed in the user feed, both in the browser and the app version.

You can create an ad that features a single photo, a video, or multiple photos that are displayed in a carousel format.

Image Feed Ads

Instagram Photo ad_Rego Advertsing

This is your most standard ad format, and likely the one you see most often scrolling through your own feed. These ads are single images that will appear as a native experience as your target lead is scrolling through their feed. The lovely thing about these ads is that they don’t feel like ads, especially when done well.

Image Story Ads

Instagram Story_Rego Advertsing

Instagram Stories ads are the first type of ad that allows full-screen 9:16 visuals on the platform. The skippable ads appear between stories in a seamless transition and are marked with a “Sponsored” label.

Video Feed Ads

Bring your ad to life with a video! If you’ve put the time in to make a quality video, then you should absolutely be promoting it through your Instagram feed.

Video Story Ads

Sponsored-Instagram-story_Rego Advertising

This is another great place to run video ads because stories are where users often expect to see videos, so the “selling” part of advertising doesn’t feel as forced.

Carousel Feed Ads

Next, we have carousel feed ads. This format allows you to show a series of scrollable images rather than just one single image.

Instagram Carousel ad_Rego Advertsing

This ad type is great for very visual brands, like those in the food industry, furniture sellers, clothing options, vacation destinations, car dealerships, etc. But they’re not only for playful businesses; they can also work to humanize your brand or show off your culture by showing the people behind your software or financial company.

The carousel format allows you to choose from up to 10 images within a single ad, each with its own link. Video is also an option for these ads.

What objectives can I meet with my Instagram ad?

For self-service customers, Instagram offers a range of different objectives for which you can optimize your campaign. Similar to Facebook, Instagram will show your ad to the people in your target audience who are most likely to take the action you want them to take. The campaign objectives you can choose from are:


Drive awareness of your business, product, app or service.

  • Reach
  • Reach and frequency
  • Brand awareness
  • Local awareness

Make potential customers more aware of your products or services.

  • Website clicks
  • Video views
  • Reach and frequency




Increase product sales, mobile app download and even visitors to your shop.

  • Website conversions
  • Dynamic ads on Instagram
  • Mobile app installs
  • Mobile app engagement

Lead Generation: Who doesn’t want more leads? If that is your main goal this objective is for you. Instagram currently only supports email, full name, phone number, and gender. These ads also have more of a barrier than Facebook lead generation ads, since when leads click to open the ad they’ll need to click through to fill out their information.

What targeting options does Instagram offer?

Instagram offers the same targeting options as Facebook. You can combine them to build a specific audience:Instagram ad Targeting options_Rego Advertsing

Advertisers have total control over how their budgets are allocated. For instance, you can choose between a daily budget to limit the amount spent per day or a lifetime budget where you would set up your ads to run for a length of time until the budget is depleted.

Other ways to control your Instagram ad spend include setting your ad schedule (for instance, you can specify certain hours of the day you want your ads to run), setting your ad delivery method (there are three options: link clicks, impressions, and daily unique reach), as well as setting your bid amount (manual vs. automatic).

If you want to set up a lifetime budget instead, i.e., a total budget for the duration of the campaign, your minimum budget is calculated by multiplying the minimum daily budget by the number of days the campaign lasts.

This is one platform you should not ignore, and this guide should provide you with enough resources to become insta-famous.

What will Social Media be like in 50 years?



‘Acha socho toh acha hoga’, this is a saying our mothers and grannies used to tell us. It basically means that if you think positive, positive things will happen. But little did they know that, what they said was literally true.

Fast forward 50 years later, imagine a world where things work only with a thought. In today’s world one has to type his/her thoughts on social media sites but imagine you could speak virtually without even moving your hand to type, neither any voice commands would be required. Imagine you could communicate with Siri via your thoughts.

We could have a much upgraded version of today’s Google Glass with new features. For example when you visit a restaurant and see the menu, you could come to know how many people have ‘liked’, ‘commented’ or even ‘re-tweeted’ that particular dish in a restaurant. It could have social filter which would provide information such as mentioned above.

Advertising would be more preciously targeted than what it is now.  As with the help of social media pages which would talk about likes and dislikes, personality and characteristics about the person; the advertisement would be more personalized than ever, the advertising would be tailored to an individual’s needs and wants.

Social media will become the next broadcaster like BBC. Newspapers or E-papers would be replaced by social media.

We will enter a new world of communication. Social media and technology will create an all together a new virtual world of its own. One that will change us and the way we perceive our things forever.

We can see how Social Media has evolved since last 50 years

It is said that one has to be an event management company or hire an event management company for an event to be successful. But we proved it wrong. On 25th April 2016, we organized the annual meet for one of our prestigious clients, Sleek – The Kitchen Specialist.

Sleek is India’s most preferred modular kitchen brand which has been in association with us from the last 8 years. Every year the brand conducts its annual meet that witnesses the footfalls of their wide dealers and distributors’ chain in India and other foreign countries. And, we being a creative partner for the brand take a great participation, from initial planning to the final execution of the theme.

Like every year this year too, it wasn’t an easy task to decide the theme for this event. After much research and creative strategizing based on the insights provided to us, we zeroed on the theme named ‘TRANSCEND… beyond boundaries’. The word TRANSCEND means to cut across and rise above the rest. Our entire idea just got conveyed in this one word.


After the theme was decided, we started to design the ‘Invites’ to make sure that the dealers had enough time to make arrangements in order to attend the meet.

We saw how our thoughts transformed into an action, when the stage blueprint was made, the venue was booked, motivational banners were being designed. And, all these creative jobs reflected the theme’s essence in the best possible way.


Finally the day of the event arrived. The venue was the Leela. The revelation of the theme was highly praised by the entire Sleek dealers. And as a result every dealer was motivated to transcend their business beyond limits. After the theme reveling, Mr. Rajesh Ahuja’s, the Chairman of Sleek shared various business strategies and the company’s plans on achieving new targets and goal this year.


It was time for some fun activity, a soft wood was distributed in goodie bag and dealers were asked to break the wood with their single hands. The thought behind this was to demonstrate the true meaning of ‘Transcend’ and to show that now it’s the time to break the limits and aim newer business heights. The activity was so entertaining that we could see dealers’ excitement with the expected actions.


The event also witnessed the presence of Sleek’s brand ambassador, Master Chef Sanjeev Kapoor. Every dealer was overwhelmed to see the master chef motivating them to achieve more and set a new trend in the modular kitchen market with Sleek.

This gave us a satisfaction that the dealers had a very good time. It also meant that the event was not only successful but also truly memorable.
