You can start your Instagram ads through the Facebook Business Manager only. All you’ve to do is connect the Business Manager to Instagram  by claiming the Instagram profile you want to advertise for. The process to create an Instagram ad is same as Facebook ads with editing the placement to Instagram and unchecking all other options. For creating the target audience, you can create an audience based on interests, behavior, connections, demographics or create a custom audience who’ve already interacted with your business or website which is also known as Retargeting Ads.

Instagram is the best social media platform for promoting your business through visual content with attractive reach, engagement and conversions with the right placement.
