Most of the marketers, today increased their usage of Instagram as their visual content. However, other brands are having a hard time in creating attracting Instagram profile and high quality of visual content for their account. 

Here are some marketing trends for your business to get the most effect for your Instagram profile even you don't have many followers.

Use Hashtags

Influencing branded hashtags to employ their company on social media. This should not only hashtagging the company name instead make an overall brand. It's like keywording in SEO, you have to create a keyword or phrases that relate to your product, campaign, and company.

Behavioral Content

Sharing your lifestyle content in your Instagram that represents your brand is another way to market even without posting product shots.  Monitoring your followers to know what kind of content they like to share is an effective way to market your brand. So that they can relate to you. 

Connect with Influencers

All Instagrammers are looking forward to increasing their followers. One of the easiest way is by connecting to influencers. Although, there are big companies who are paying to partner with influencers to get a huge amount of followers. However, by exchanging your products for giving out something to them or small token will help you to get exposure.

Before you partner, take time os study the influencers profile if they are fit for your company because not all influencers will like your product and it doesn't mean they can create an attracting content for you.

Before this event, there are numerous billboards with the statement, “Maghihintay ako… - Manuel” that you will see all over the Metro and along the SLEX and NLEX. 

Who is Manuel? What is he waiting for? Is this a proposal? Questions have been circulating the news as well as in social media, and I am one of the people who had been bluffed about this until I attend the event.

Until I fully understand what is this about. It was Manuel L. Quezon University (MLQU) campaign to emphasize its historical significance to the new generation. It's all about their plan to get back into the limelight to continue its legacy into the future.

“It’s about time that we get back on track and build the culture of excellence and legacy of becoming an outstanding institution,”
 - Dr. Isagani Germar, New San Jose Builders, Inc.  (NSJBI) Co-chairman and MLQU President. 

During the said event, It was themed to be "Sikat 'Pag Quezonian" because MLQU has produced notable Quezonians who have made an impact in their respective industries. Among these are Rustica Carpio (academician and multi-awarded actress on stage, film, and television) who first appeared in Ishmael Bernal’s Nunal sa Tubig in 1976.

MLQU offers courses such as Law and Paralegal Studies, Education, Arts and Sciences, Accountancy and Business Arts, Engineering, Graduate Studies, Criminology, Architecture, and Information Technology. Under the new management’s supervision, there is a plan to add a course on real estate management. All of these courses would not be possible without the credible and reliable faculty and deans who are industry experts and who graduated from top universities here and abroad for the school to offer world-class education. 

MLQU is also aiming to establish its presence in Balanga, Bataan. To strengthening its Professional School, the School for Professional Advancement & Continuing Education (SPACE), which would further upgrade the level of education that they provide.
