Instagram is among the most popular social media services, with millions of users logging into their accounts on a daily basis to check the latest posts, upload new photos or videos, etc. However, Instagram is also a great advertising platform.

Interessting but way to expensive for Small Business. And Instagram is (like facebook) not that big in Germany, which is our home market.
I would pay maybe 5 or 7 $/mth for their basic account, right now and observe the market development.
