Instagram is a huge social media platform for businesses. From advertising, content creation, communicating all the way to influencer marketing — businesses use multiple methods to increase their brand awareness.

Creating a social media campaign works, but it requires a lot of work too. You have to know a lot of different things to have a profitable social media campaign. Most businesses prefer to focus on their product instead of this — and that’s how Social Media Marketing agencies were born.

SMM agencies help businesses with their social media campaigns, so they can focus on providing the best service. In this article, we’re going to explore some of those agencies, mainly focused on Instagram marketing. Without further ado…

(In No Particular Order) Here’s a list of the top 9 Instagram marketing agencies for brands and businesses:

1. Jumper Media

Jumper Media is a San Diego based, worldwide social media agency that focuses solely on Instagram. While most other agencies provide services for multiple platforms, Jumper Media is only interested in Instagram, and that’s what makes them stand out from the rest. They claim to be experts when it comes to Instagram and they do indeed have a pretty strong Instagram page to back it up.

They offer a variety of different services including growth, management, content creation and advertising. We’ve talked about these services earlier, but you can find full detailed descriptions and summaries of each one on their website.

The most unique aspect of Jumper Media is their storytelling ability. They claim to be experts at storytelling, and you can find a lot of useful testimonials from their clients under the “Stories” page on their website. It is important to have a unique brand story in order to stand out from the rest — so this marketing angle sounds very appealing for brands who are looking exactly for that.

They have services as cheap as $149/month which seem like a great deal.

7. True North Social

True North Social is another LA-based social media agency with distinctive services. Although they offer many different options such as social media management, SEO, and Shopify design, they also have Instagram specific services — mainly Instagram advertising, and influencer marketing.
