L2 examines the Instagram activity of 250 major brands in nine categories in its second annual Instagram Intelligence Report. This report reveals that Instagram content, rather than audience size or posting frequency helps brands to maintain strong engagement with consumers.
Factors which contribute to stronger engagement include:
-Posting a variety of content, such as lifestyle photography and celebrities photos
-Attaching the brand to an influencer, which can be a person or an event
