UGallery.com, an online art gallery for original work, was added last week to Instagram’s list of “Suggested Users.”
Instagram highlights accounts on its Suggested User list that produce exemplary content and bring a unique perspective to the platform, according to the Instagram website. It features top accounts that showcase beautiful, original content.
“We’re thrilled to be a featured account on Instagram. We sell original art, which is very visual by nature, so we have great synergy with social media platforms like Instagram that also rely on visual content,” said Charlotte Nichols, Director of Marketing at UGallery.
UGallery's followers grew 500% in its first 24 hours as a featured account, and continue to grow by the thousands this week.
The company also engages customers through Pinterest, where followers are growing at a rapid pace, reaching over 1.6 million this month. All of the art that UGallery displays on Instagram and Pinterest is for sale on its online art gallery so a follower has the option to buy if they see something they love.
“We’re revolutionizing the process of buying art by bringing it to the online channel. We give our customers access to thousands of hand-selected pieces, much more than they could see through traditional brick and mortar galleries,” said Nichols.
UGallery offers a free trial period on every purchase to alleviate risk in buying art online.
Find UGallery on the Suggested Users list by selecting “Find Friends” and “Suggested Users” from an Instagram Profile.
