Why Instagram - by the Numbers

People come to Instagram to be inspired and discover things they care about, and that includes content from brands and businesses. To put it into perspective, an average image on Instagram gets 23% more engagement than one published on Facebook (BusinessofApps), even though the latter has 2x more monthly active users. Instagram has 1 billion monthly active users, 25+ million business accounts, and a projected 14 billion USD in revenue. 200 Million+ Instagrammers visit at least one Business Profile daily. 1/3 of the most viewed stories are from businesses. For this article, we searched for relevant hashtags and registered 386K posts for #CRE, 40.3 posts for #realestatebrokerage, and 12.3K for #shopping centers. Folks on Instagram are there in numbers and willing to talk to you. Our partner’s site, STRIP MALLS ROCK, has 3500 active followers, mostly CRE Professionals. It’s a fertile ground worth putting effort into with the right tools to help you along the way.  More…..

Highly Measurable

Instagram is highly measurably and trackable over time–another feature of the platform that can help you track numbers of Followers and Following on Instagram. The My Social Plus provides a full feature metric tracking and analysis.

What to post?

Instagram provides an opportunity to share super-high-quality images, graphics, and videos. Smart users aim to post between one to three times per day with good quality text, images, and videos.

Instagram is a natural fit for real estate professionals to post amazing images of their properties, video walkthroughs, and other tidbits buyers want to know. It’s highly visual and shows off your listings. You don’t have to compete with Loopnet, Catayst, CommercialSearch,, or Trulia. You’ll see who likes your posts so you can reach out directly to leads, contacts, and associates for further collaboration.  It’s free event marketing for happy hour parties, open houses, and other meetups. Most important is conversions–Instagram is a goldmine for referrals.


Keep active on your site. Make sure your bio is relevant and exciting. Be responsive and interact with your community as you grow it. Reply quickly to your followers’ comments, direct messages, and follows. Collaborate with micro, nano-influencers, and partner brands. Working with the right influencers and partners will boost your engagement much more effectively than trying to do it on your own.

Use relevant, targeted hashtags on your posts and stories is still one of the best ways to get discovered by new audiences on Instagram. We recommend using 5 - 6 hashtags that are super relevant to your post. If you’re being tagged in posts, respond.

Consistency in your social media posts can make an enormous difference in your social media performance. Having a consistent post schedule is essential, but that can be tough in the real estate business where your schedule is always changing. Tracking your progress is critical. Premium with My Social Plus will do all that and make you an Instagram Superstar!
