Create Instagram Ads That Let People Send Message To Your Instagram Inbox

Instagram Ads with this destination will include a call to action to send your instagram business account a direct message. People that interact with your ad and tap your call to action (send message button) will be prompted to send a message to your inbox on Instagram.

Instagram sponsored ads created with this destination are good if you want to encourage people to contact your business to schedule an appointment or learn more about services.
