A few months ago we blogged about MailChimp’s new Facebook Ad Campaign feature, just 4 months on they’ve now introduced Instagram Ad Campaigns to their collection of integrated marketing tools.
What are the benefits of utilising MailChimp social media campaigns rather than direct?
Their campaign platform allows you to target your existing MailChimp list, people similar to your list, or a whole new demographic entirely. You can of course choice to simply utilise the Instagram Ads Campaign tool for your advertisement, but with one click you can opt in for Facebook Ads too.
The swish ad analytics are definitely a bonus, when you connect your e-commerce store to MailChimp you will be able to see exactly how your ad is performing with their tracking and reporting system. It will tell you exactly how much money you’ve made from the ad, and how many new customers you acquired.
MailChimp’s focus is on usability, with the same ease and navigation as the beloved email marketing platform, they’ve made it easy to create and setup an ad, with great building tools and visualisation that is seamless with a professional result.
Plus there are no extra fee’s involved with using MailChimp to post your Instagram ads, all advertising funds will go straight to your Instagram ad account with no hidden fee’s.
