To effectively monetize its audience, the company built the best targeting tools and the most cost-effective ads for advertisers. As brands and agencies worry about declining organic reach, platforms such as Instagram have continued to expand their ad offerings to include paid placement on the Instagram Explore page. This effectively increased the volume of ads they could sell.
  • Additionally, the increasing number of mobile phone users across various emerging economies in the world is expected to drive the demand for online-based advertisement services.
