50+ Little Known Places to Promote Your Instagram AR Filter To Get Massive Exposure


The idea that a brand or an Instagram account that you are launching an AR filter needs to have hundreds of thousands of followers is bull****!

And no, that account doesn’t have to be a major global brand or even have a full agency team of marketers to get results. 

You might say, “Dude, they are Instagram filters. Why can’t Instagram do all the work for us?” 

Instagram is the platform. A really dope one at that. Wanna do something awesome for them like driving traffic to them while you reap the rewards too? 

Truth is, there’s no limit to where you can promote your Instagram filters.

Here are some creative places you can share your filters to get massive exposure:

You don’t have to use all of them, but you may be losing out on not only awareness of your Instagram filters but maybe even conversions and sales if you fail to grab a huge pool of audiences right off the bat. Don’t depend on the launch and cross your fingers that someone like Kylie Jenner will use your filter. 

I just shared a bunch of places you can use. 

But all of it was pointless if you do nothing with this information. 

Don’t be afraid to test new places. Maybe you’ll find a new avenue not even listed here. 

Can you think of a place to promote that I missed?
