April 24th, 2017

How Your Credit Union Can Avoid the Top 5 Mistakes on Instagram Is your CU on Instagram?  If not, maybe it should be.  After all, Instagram is one of the fastest growing social media platforms today.  The audience on Instagram skews much younger than Facebook, most being between the ages of 18-29, which makes it an excellent platform for your CU to reach younger potential new members.  However, if you’re going to use this new social media platform, it’s important that you avoid the most common mistakes. Here’s a list of the top 5 mistakes we see regularly on Instagram: 1. Profile is Incomplete When creating an account on Instagram, you have up to 150 characters to use to describe your Credit Union.  Make sure your description is complete and straightforward.  Also, make sure your website is listed, since it is click-able directly from your profile. We also recommend that you change the link in your profile when you share relevant content from your website, as this is the ONLY hyperlink on the platform that so it’s the best way to send people to your CU website. Refer to these links in the relevant posts with comments like “link to blog in profile above.”
