Instagram PR Guidelines

As you prepare to announce your Instagram campaign, please refer to the following guidelines to aid in creating press materials that reference Instagram. Once drafted, send your press release or blog post to and someone from the Instagram Communications team will respond to you with edits or final approval within five business days of receipt. You may not distribute or publish your news until you receive written approval from Instagram.

We hope you find these guidelines helpful as you draft your press materials and prepare to speak publicly about your program.

Thank you,

Note: The accepted formula that Auxiliary Mode Inc. uses to calculate the CPM range is $0.45 USD - $25.00 USD.

The range fluctuates this much because many factors come into play when calculating a CPM. Quality of traffic, source country, niche type of video, price of specific ads, adblock, the actual click rate, watch time and etc.

Cost per thousand (CPM) is a marketing term used to denote the price of 1,000 advertisement impressions on one webpage. If a website publisher charges $2.00CPM, that means an advertiser must pay $2.00 for every 1,000 impressions of its ad. The "M" in CPM represents the Roman numeral for 1,000.
