As you may know, Instagram allows you to make your profile a company page by linking your Facebook page. What if they somehow put this into v2 so start-up brands could put a contact button or shop now button on their account? Also, give the user more in-depth analytic access like
; types of accounts viewing your profile
; monthly/ weekly/ daily/ hourly like’s
; Most popular post
; and more.
I think this would draw a lot more people into the application especially if you somehow make a “Brand” section of the app where brands could post their content and advertise themselves on other brand accounts.
For example, my friend owns the company letvisionslive.com and has two different social media accounts. He only uses Twitter and Instagram because those are the best and easiest to spread your content and you also get very in-depth analytics such as the gender of your followers, location, country, when they are most active and other analytics which he uses to advertise his brand. I honestly think if people are given this kind of access to their v2 account they will be more likely to join and stay active. If you were to make this you could also create a donate button (or as you said) charge people one penny to comment on the brand’s post (can be toggled on or off) to help out small companies.
anyways this was just something I thought I would share with you guys since I’ve seen it work in the real world.
