Comment on IGTV
Personally, I think IGTV is a great addition to the Instagram application.
However, it is not necessary that all accounts participate (yet). No monetization opportunities like YouTube (receive payments based on visits); nor without a way for viewers to find their content through searches, creating content for IGTV could mean a greater workload with little return on investment.
Now, having said that, you can create quality IGTV content that impresses your audience or broadens your experience. This will make your relationship with them better. That could lead to even greater engagement or sales. But the ability to reach new audiences is limited at this time so I would not put all my strategy on IGTV!
Try it, but do not devote all your time and energy. It has not yet proven to have a positive return on investment.
