I’ve used Instagram in my work, too. Of course, my results were more modest than the ones cited in the article, however, in case my statistics would be of interest to anyone, here it is:
I’ve got a BigCommerce website with the traffic of about 500 people a day.
I’ve got a couple of Instagram accounts (similar to, but not quite so prominent).
I’ve tried to increase the number of my Instagram followers with the help of a website plugin (, bloggers and advertising (
I’ve also implemented Instagram shopping.

As the result, I’ve got a 70% increase in the number of subscribers and a 12% increase in sales. Good figures for a very small investment.

By: Tracey Wallace Mon, 03 Apr 2017 16:12:00 +0000 Absolutely, Gareth! What category are you selling in?

By: Gareth Wed, 22 Mar 2017 12:50:00 +0000 Great news! Please do use whatever influence you may have with Instagram to open this up to more categories though, as I’d love to use it. I’ve had success with Instagram despite a fairly modest number of followers, and this would be a game-changer.
