9 Brands That Are Doing Instagram Ads Correctly
You need to take advantage of Instagram.
Take a look at some of the brands who know how to play to Instagram’s strengths.
1. Michael Kors and Accessible Luxury
Luxury brand Michael Kors recently released a video carousel ad on Instagram stories designed to draw more attention to its new Access Smartwatches. With the help of Romanian model and influencer, Andreea Diaconu, the carousel boosted Michael Kors’ click-through-rate three times over.
2. Domino’s and the Hungry College Student
Domino’s has mastered the “native” approach to Instagram.
Even though the account is held and operated by employees, it looks like it’s run by a college student. Partner that native appearance with the popularity of food pictures on Instagram, and Domino’s attracts enough daily social conversation to keep its sales on the rise.
3. Starbucks and Influencer Magic
Upon the opening of Starbucks’ Reserve Roastery in Chelsea, New York, the brand maneuvered its already significant Instagram following into prime marketing position with the help of several Instagram influencers.
Through a combination of localized marketing and hashtag use, Starbucks was able to use Alyssa Lenore, Will Taylor, and Chelsea as of Late to garner a 3.42 percent engagement rate on its Reserve Roastery marketing campaign.
4. One Foot Forward With TOMS
TOMS’ bolstered its one-to-one strategy in 2015 by encouraging consumers to take pictures of their bare feet. Sound strange?
Maybe, but TOMS paired its #withoutshoes campaign with a promise to deliver a pair of shoes to a child in need for every photo that was taken. The company donated 296,243 shoes as a result of the campaign and tapped into the millennial desire to see activism in their marketing campaigns.
5. The New York Times Seizes the Moment
The NYT’s emphasis on independent journalism strikes a political chord with millennial audiences on Instagram.
As a result, the company’s subscription-oriented Instagram ads have caught the eye of a number of consumers, leading to financial gains where the company had previously been on the decline.
6. Bee Sweet with Haagen-Dazs
In a move that combined environmental activism and sweets, ice cream company Haagen-Dazs used Instagram stories to promote Free Cone Day.
Once again, millennial social awareness contributes to this ad’s success.
7. Huda Beauty and Influencers
Of coures, you can’t mention Instagram without mentioning beauty bloggers. HudaBeauty has Instagram influencer Huda Kattan firmly in its marketing bullpen.
Huda Kattan’s 37.8 million followers and fashion-forward makeup tutorials make her platform ideal for a company such as Huda Beauty.
It’s easier than you might think to use Instagram to your advantage. Partner long- and short-term content, consumer participation, and influencer support, and your marketing campaign will improve engagement and ROI in no time.
