Track your Audience Demographics Using Instagram Insights

Once you completely understand your audience, you can shape your content and profile to target the right people. The “Total followers” section of your account insights will take you deeper into your audience. Here, you can understand where your audience resides, their age and gender, and when they are active. You can use this information to tailor your content to the audience you are reaching. For example, if your audience is primarily 35-44-year-old men from Dallas, you can create content with interest on 34-44 yo men from Dallas.  Track-your-Audience-Demographics
