Instagram – Promote your band with Images & Graphics

Social Media is increasingly becoming more about photos and videos, and BandTools reckons Instagram for bands takes that to the next level. Purchased by Facebook in 2012, this mobile friendly media app is a great way to share tour updates, studio diary, new merch, gig posters, and much more to keep your fans engaged in your band.
