In the post-COVID era, people and brands are seeking an opportunity to turn a meaningful new leaf, and it looks like Instagram is the latest member of the visual refresh club.
The last time Instagram visually rebranded was in 2016 when it changed its iconic polaroid logo to its now well-known pink gradient logo.
The 2022 update features three significant changes to the platform’s architecture:
- A vibrant update to its gradient motif via 3D modelling.
- The introduction of a brand-new typeface, Instagram Sans.
- A seamless, full-bleed layout that places community and content before anything else.

Unless you are a professional marketer, it can be hard to know where to spend your marketing dollars. You have to rely on a marketing expert to guide you, but how do you know if what they are selling is snakes oil or not.

Of course, with marketing, not all of your money will see a positive ROI – that’s just the nature of the business. Think of your marketing budget a bit like the stock market. Put 80% into mutual funds that will see results in the long run but use 20% to experiment and put into riskier propositions. You might lose that 20%, but you also might hit it big. Any marketer who guarantees you immediate results is overselling themselves.
We’ve put together a list of things you should be wary of, and if a marketer tries to sell you on one or more of these services, you need to be armed with the right questions to ask them.

Add to the fact the interfaces seem to always changing (most of the time unnecessarily, in my opinion)
A lot of businesses owners don’t have the expertise or the time to be able to effectively manage these platforms so they hire Google or Facebook experts to do their online marketing for them.
