Marketing software company Kenshoo has announced an integration with the recently launched Instagram Ads API, enabling marketers to reach more than 300 million monthly active mobile consumers via the popular photo sharing service
Kenshoo is among the first Facebook Marketing Partners granted initial access to the Instagram Ads API. Kenshoo clients can now deliver engaging experiences to a highly immersive community of consumers on Instagram.
“Our integration with Instagram makes high-value mobile advertising inventory accessible to more advertisers. Kenshoo is thrilled to be among a group of the first Facebook Marketing Partners given initial access to the Instagram Ads API,” said Kenshoo Asia-Pacific and Japan managing director Yukihiko Imamura. “The mobile audience on Instagram is significant and brands want to place their brand messages in front of this engaged audience.”
Kenshoo’s Infinity Suite, integrated with Instagram’s Ads API, enables advertisers to gain a more holistic view and understanding of their social and mobile consumers. Additionally, advertisers benefit from the award-winning Kenshoo technology to automate the management and optimization of budgeting, bidding, and creative assets to meet their overall marketing goals.
GroupM Australia SEM Director, Furqan Wasif, said Instagram has quickly become a must-have advertising channel for brands that want to stay at the forefront of mobile engagement.
“Kenshoo’s access to the Instagram Ads API offering will enable us to streamline our campaign launches, and integrate them seamlessly with our existing mobile campaigns; allowing our team to get a comprehensive view of our entire campaign portfolio,” said Wasif.
“The integration strategically complements our Facebook campaigns and creates extended reach for our clients to build their brands on a proven mobile platform.”
Kenshoo said the evidence showed already that Instagram advertising delivers substantial benefits to brands.

“When coupled with Kenshoo’s innovative suite of targeting and optimization tools, and brands advertising on Instagram have the potential to exponentially improve results for their entire campaign portfolio.”
