What Instagram Shoppers are Eyeing and Buying

What’s Inside

Instagram offers a variety of shoppable ads that allow consumers to browse and buy from embedded websites. In this study, we delved into attitudes and behaviors of Instagram users who shop in-ad. We uncovered suprising findings about who’s eyeing and who’s buying.

  1. One third of users buy directly from Instagram ads.
  2. Nearly 8 in 10 shoppers buy from an unfamiliar brand.
  3. The way an ad looks is a leading purchase driver.
