WHY DO PEOPLE WANT TO FIND THE URL OF AN INSTAGRAM AD?

There are a few reasons marketers and the public, in general, may want to find and keep the URL of an Instagram ad:

  • Go back to an Instagram ad they like
  • Go back to an Instagram ad they want to show to a friend or family member
  • Go back to an Instagram ad of a product/service they are considering buying or are ready to buy.
  • Competitive intelligence. Collect the best Instagram ads from competitors.
  • Send the URL to your team so they can see a specific Instagram ad running.

HOW TO FIND THE EXACT URL OF AN INSTAGRAM AD

Before I tell you how to get an Instagram ad URL, I want to remind you that Instagram ads do not run on your desktop or laptop. You can only see Instagram ads on your Instagram mobile app on your phone.

Answer: Instagram ads do not offer specific URLs at the moment. The Instagram development team is working on it and trying to fix it.

In the meantime, I suggest you three options to easily go back to the Instagram ads:

OPTION 1: Save the Instagram ad in one of your collection folders. Click on the collection button (bottom right corner of the Instagram ad) and then save it in your preferred collection folder. You can name your collection folder: Instagram ads.

OPTION 2: Go to Instagram > Settings > Ads > Ad Activity. This section will show the ads you have interacted with within the last few months, so if you didn’t like or comment, it may not show up.

OPTION 3: Just screenshot the Instagram ad and save it in your phone photo gallery.

A quick question for you: Are your Instagram ads generating sales and profit for your business?

You can start a successful social media strategy with clear and defined objectives that will make you grow your business.

A well-crafted social media strategy will:

✔︎ Free up valuable time for you
✔︎ Make you produce far less but better quality marketing campaigns and content.
✔︎ It will increase sales, profits and brand equity

If you are a creative, passionate and curious mind and are seriously ready to grow your business, I invite you to craft a successful social media strategy today!

I guarantee you will not go back to the same old way you were doing marketing. 

CONCLUSION

Finding the URL of an Instagram ad could be a great tool for tracking, monitoring and keeping a record of an Instagram ad you are interested in watching later on. Unfortunately, Instagram does not offer an easy way to get a URL that directs you to a specific ad.
