    We have considered Instagram but as far as we could see it can only be uploaded to from a smartphone.

    We want to do so from a pc.

    Hi Colleen. Great article. It’s interesting to see Instagram roll out business tools, but I haven’t really heard of any success stories of reach via instagram, as it tends to be more of a closed network. If you could share any insights that you may have seen, that would be great?
