What is IGTV – Instagram takes on Youtube.
Optimise Agency
June 28, 2018
It’s been a while since I wrote anything and I have barely touched upon “Social Media” however I think Instagram certainly requires further attention by business owners, Youtube has long been considered the 2nd largest “Search Engine” by us boring online marketing geeks after the main Google search interfaces we all think of, but with the massive audience that Instagram commands this may no longer be the landscape. Instagram celebrated its milestone achievement of reaching one billion users by introducing Instagram TV, or IGTV, a video service that allows longer videos for up to one hour. In a San Francisco launch event, Instagram CEO Kevin Systrom suggested that this resource would enable Instagram users to watch videos without distractions. [1] Members can tune-in to their favorite influencers, companies and channels. You can change the channel just by swiping up on the screen. The videos are all in full-screen vertical format, so constant adjusting is unnecessary.

I founded and operate online marketing consulting business called Optimise - >

The goal is to help ecommerce and marketplace businesses win at SEO and other traffic acquisition channels such as Google and Bing Ads.

We work predominantly with ecommerce sites, online marketplaces such as classifieds and jobs boards, but we also manage successful campaigns in many other areas including marine industry, law, food, finance and healthcare plus to many other niches to list here.

At Optimise I've developed and honed a number of great processes from nearly 20 years in the SEM (Search Engine Marketing) game that can help almost any business gain significantly better visibility online without the need to do anything scammy or unethical. Firstly we optimised our internal processes to then help clients optimise their marketing thus avoiding haphazard, untested and flaky ideas.

If you are interested in what we do, please don't hesitate to get in touch with me to see what solutions we can recommend for your business, we excel at problem-solving and we love to chat marketing!
