Jennifer Ferri - we had a webinar where Dusty Baker shared the secrets of using Instagram for business.

I'd say, all tools are useful and productive - if done right.

(No, I don't use Instagram).

I don't use it. 

Waste of time? I think it depends on your target market.

Good morning Jennifer. I have no clue if it is a waste of time. I don't use it, but some that do say it helps them.

Yes.  I post my listing photos and some local area photos.  Haven't seen much of a boost to my site yet, but I have a lot of followers.

It's been fun and has built a following so if it is successful it is indirect.

I do not think it has been a leading force in finding customers if any, i have kind of laid off it with just so little time and other places i get better results

As they say: FB is for older people, Instagram is for younger ones:) I have both accounts, but have to learn to use them better.

Certainly not an online necessity but you can use it to showcase properties. 

Here is a cool and free app to create short videos from photos on your phone: https://flipagram.com/

Take a few photos of your listing, use Flipagram, and then add the video to instagram. Fast and easy way to get a cool instagram video of a property.

It is very hard to add extra platforms unless you are already deep into Instagram. My plate is full right now.
