Each time you tag a brand in your post, whether that be in the caption or the photo itself, Instagram sends them a notification. Although tagging brands does get their attention, I highly advise against tagging brands purely just for the sake of getting their attention.
Is it better to tag or mention on Instagram?
Difference between Tagging and Mentioning on Instagram
Tagging can only be done by the content creator, whereas mentions can be done by anyone. Tagging is often the better option as mentions can be lost in the notifications (i.e. feed only shows the 100 most recent notifications), whereas tagging shows up separately.
Is it OK to tag celebrities on Instagram?
If your Instagram account is set to public, anyone can see the photo or video, and the person you tagged will get a notification. If your Instagram account is private, only your approved followers can see the photo or video, and the person you tag will only get a notification if they’re following you.
What’s the point of tagging on Instagram?
Tagging someone ensures they see the notification and the image in which you tagged them. If you want to reach out to your favorite brands, tag them in your posts that showcase their products or services.
Can you mention brands on Instagram?
Once you’ve taken a photo or video, tap the link icon at the top of the screen. Tap Tag Business Partner to search for the business. Please keep in mind that, the business partner must have a business profile to appear in search results. Tap the name of the business you want to tag in your story.
What is proper Instagram etiquette?
Instagram’s Community Guidelines clearly state “Share only photos and videos that you’ve taken or have the right to share.” As well as being a serious etiquette no-no, using someone’s image without their permission may breach copyright (hello, legal implications!)
