Instagram Now Shows Ads From Influencers Even When You Don't Follow Them

It means that you could see the ads on your feed and Stories on the Instagram app even when you are not their follower.

It is now easier for advertisers to promote their brand thanks to ads from Instagram influencers. The ads are performed in both Stories and the feed. Thus, although you are not following the influencers, their paid partnership with Old Navy might hit your screen.

There are many creators who earn money by partnering with brands and posting sponsored content. However, the interaction is low as only users following them can see the content. That limits the popularity of the ads and it is difficult to reach the target. Luckily, today’s announcement brings good news to creators as their sponsored content can be widespread. Not only their followers but also others can see the ads. It means that you could see the ads on your feed and Stories regardless of you not being their follower.

According to Instagram’s announcement, it is a chance for businesses to promote their brand to customers through the voice of creators by partnering with influencers to run their branded ads. Moreover, it also works effectively as users can know more about their concerned brands and products from the voice of influencers they are following. With the ads platforms of Facebook, brands can analyze the performance of their post and the optimization of their campaigns.

When the ads are posted on Instagram, it will be recognized as sponsored branded content due to the mark “Sponsored” put at the beginning of the post. In addition, there is a phrase “Paid partnership with” appearing in the place of the post’s header and above the captions. This shows the brand sponsoring the ads. Instagram will start this feature in the upcoming time. It is said that it will have access to your Instagram feed and Stories in a few weeks and a few months respectively.
