Should I Be Building on Facebook or Instagram?
The short answer is: both! For a couple of reasons…
- We LOVE Facebook… but as entrepreneurs it’s so important to be diversified and not locked in to one single platform.
(Ever heard the term, don’t put all your eggs in one basket?)
- It’s no secret that building on Facebook is harder than ever.
The newsfeed is crowded, advertising is expensive, and organic (free) reach is virtually non-existent on business pages, and continues to decrease on your profile and in groups.
Although Facebook is still our primary source for leads and growing our business, we also recognize how important it is to keep your eyes on the horizon and always be preparing for the ‘next big thing’.
And with Instagram currently being the fastest growing social media platform in the world, we’re excited to say the next big thing is here!
- As fast as Instagram is growing, there’s still not a ton of activity on Instagram in the network marketing industry.
Imagine being one of the first network marketers on Facebook… back in 2012 and 2013 when the leaders in our industry were just beginning to make the move to social media.
You now have that opportunity to be one of the first to the party with Instagram… IF you do it the right way!
Ready to ride the wave and become one of the first network marketers to crush it on Instagram? Join us for our FREE 5 Day Challenge to get your first (or next!) 100 Followers on Instagram in just 5 Days!
Instagram for Business | Some Quick Stats
Instagram has thrown its hat in the social media ring with almost 1 Billion monthly active users, which puts it just behind Facebook but well ahead of both Twitter and Pinterest.
Of those 1 Billion Users nearly 500 million use the app daily, and that number is climbing! In fact, the proportion of adults who use Instagram has risen by over 400% in the last 6 years.
As for business, 80% of users follow a business or brand on Instagram, and 60% of them use the app to find new products they love.
And since 72% of users have purchased a product they saw on Instagram… that tells us one very important thing: Instagrammers aren’t just open to buying through the app… they are extremely comfortable with it!
That means more sales and enrollments for your business!
Instagram for Business | Engagement is King
It’s marketing 101 to go where the eyeballs are. After all, who cares how amazing your message and story are, if there’s no one around to see them?
We’ve shown with the previous stats that the eyeballs are on Facebook and Instagram…. but here’s where things get interesting:
Brands are experiencing engagement rates 10x higher on Instagram than what they’re getting on Facebook — both among their followers AND new people they don’t know!
In fact, brands report engagement from around 4% of their followers on Instagram, while Facebook and Twitter get less than 1%.
If that was the only stat we shared with you, that would be reason enough to get in the Instagram game!
Why? Because without engagement it is impossible to build true relationships with your audience. But with the right group of engaged, excited followers you can build a true empire!
If you struggle getting engagement and connecting with people on Facebook… this stat is for you!

Instagram for Business | Your Organic, Unlimited Lead Generating Machine
We’ve dug into some amazing reasons why Instagram is the best new place to build your business, but in case you aren’t yet convinced… we have saved the best for last:
Raise your hand if you’re tired of sharing your business with the same old family and friends, over and over and over again.
Now raise your hand if you’re tired jumping through hoops to connect with new people on Facebook, to grow your friends list, and get people to actually engage with your posts & messages.
Welcome to the club. And allow us to show you a better way to grow your audience and your influence… Instagram.
While Facebook makes it tough to grow your friends list and connect with new people, Instagram was actually built for it.
And with the right strategies you can easily grow your following by 100-200 new people a week… without having to send friend requests to strangers.
In fact, with the right strategies, these people will actually be reaching out to follow YOU — not the other way around. Pretty cool, right?
Even better — with no limit on the number of followers your account can have, you can quickly exceed the 5000 friends limit that Facebook imposes and grow your Instagram following to 10,000, 25,000 and even more!
