Instagram is one of the most popular social media platforms for artists, with over 1 billion monthly active users and 500 million daily active users. It allows artists to showcase their work, connect with their audience, and discover new opportunities. However, is Instagram enough for artists to build their online presence, or do they also need a website to complement their social media strategy? In this essay, I will compare the pros and cons of having an Instagram account only versus having both an Instagram account and a website as an artist.
Pros of Having an Instagram Account Only
Cons of Having an Instagram Account Only
In conclusion, having an Instagram account only or having both an Instagram account and a website has its own advantages and disadvantages for artists. There is no definitive answer to which one is better, as it depends on the artist’s goals, resources, and preferences. However, I would recommend that artists have both an Instagram account and a website if they want to maximize their online presence, reach, and impact. Having both platforms can help artists create a more balanced and comprehensive online strategy that combines the benefits of social media and website. It can also help artists diversify their sources of income, exposure, and opportunities.
