THE GROWTH OF INSTAGRAM:

…has been nothing short of phenomenal. Since Facebook acquired the property some six years ago, active users has grown from 30 million to an estimated 1 billion today! According to Facebook, Instagram is currently contributing the most to their business. Long story short, if you are not leveraging Instagram to promote your business site, event, or blog, you are definitely missing the boat.

Getting started with Instagram is easy. All you need is to signup for a free account, then download the Instagram App to your smartphone. It’s available for free in the App Store, Google Play, and from Microsoft.

Next, of course you will want to display your Instagram Feed on your site, and while there are numerous plugins available in the WordPress Repository, I have found none better than Enjoy Instagram. The free version, available here, is impressive but limited to displaying your feed in Grid and Carousel views. Where the plugin really shines is through the premium version at a surprisingly low price, available here.

In addition to Grid and Carousel displays – Album, Polaroid, and Badge are available. Regardless of choice, all modes are easily and highly customizable to suit your needs.

Another robust feature of the premium plugin is Moderation Panel where you can actively manage your Instagram Feed. Check out this short video below:
