Find Instagram accounts that offer great stuff for your target customer or audience. Advertise on them while attracting viewers of the content (and your Link Ads) based on the content and big accounts you are sharing to social. You may need to do some research on the web to isolate the best Instagram accounts to share, based on their popularity as well as fit for your desired audience. You can also search for content in Instagram.

Note that for links shortened with, Facebook and LinkedIn will not accept them. This is beyond our control; FB and LinkedIn are now blocking all short links created of full URLs. So, if using RiteForge, RiteBoost for scheduling posts, we suggest that you do not shorten links for posts you schedule to LinkedIn or Facebook. If just using, even with custom subdomain, please use them in Tweets, emails, IG comments - and everywhere else - just not in FB or LinkedIn.
