  • How do college marketers view Instagram?
  • How much staff time and money do they put into their Instagram efforts and how do they evaluate these efforts?
  • How much are colleges spending on paid Instagram advertising and what do they think of the results of these efforts?
  • What is the expected rate of change of Instagram paid advertising over the next year?
  • How do they apportion their time and money among Instagram and other social media options?
  • What are the most admired college Instagram sites?
  • How are photos chosen for the college Instagram site?
  • Who is involved in the decision making?
  • How does the college coordinate the college main Instagram site with Instagram sites of other units of the college?

Just a few of the report's many findings are that:

  • The mean number of Instagram followers for the colleges sampled was 2,085.
  • Colleges charging the most for tuition that had by far the most likes and comments, a mean of 4625 in the past month for colleges charging more than $38,000 per year in annual tuition.
