Our Instagram Marketing Approach

Instagram is a discovery platform for many people as they constantly come across new brands that their friends share online, and that they may not have seen on their own. For us to help with this discovery, we’ll do the following:

  • Find relevant and high use hashtags to index our creative content to allow for more reach
  • Engage with specific users on Instagram that are likely to find the content useful
  • Work with influencers and/or other users to share content across a larger audience
  • Serve as your online customer service team by answering followers’ questions within 24 hours

The Value

There are many ways people consume information. Two of the most popular ways are images and audio. As such, Instagram marketing can help you showcase your final products or completed services. If you’re a person building a personal brand, engaging with fans and welcoming them to tag you is a good strategy.

Take this picture of Julio (one of REN’s founders) and Gigi Hadid as an example of brand awareness.

One of us is the international model of the year… 🌝 @gigihadid #gigihadid #internationalmodeloftheyear

If you didn’t know who Gigi Hadid was prior to the picture, you might have looked her up online. Why? Well, if you were following Julio on Instagram and you read, “One of us is the international model of the year”, you might be interested in learning more about who she is that Julio HAD to take a picture with.

As a business, we can encourage your Instagram followers to tag your business in posts when they visit your store or use a product.

Managing your own account?
