His feed is made up of his own motivational quotes, interview snippets, and recently a series of comic strips – an originally brilliant way of getting messages across.

Instagram for business

If you’re not already following Instagram for Business, what are you waiting for? Their feed is full of fresh and beautifully shot photos, showcasing top brands and businesses and telling their stories. With a little bit of background, they’ll delve into how Instagram benefits their business but better still, they provide you with a ‘pro tip’ on how you can make Instagram work for your own brand. And let’s not forget Instagram Stories. Followers also have access to their key insights, top tips and how-to’s on Instagram’s top features and how best to utilize them for your brand. Cool, right?

Ok, we’ll spoil you. Here are a few extra, just for fun…

  • Lego
  • Playdoh
  • Oreo

Something these three brands are exceptionally good at is using their Instagram to interact directly with their audience. Rather than talking explicitly about their products, they (very cleverly, we may add) use what we know about them to entertain and create fun, lighthearted posts we’re able to relate to. These three giants keep things relevant by reacting to events in the media, respond to their comments and never take themselves too seriously – a trait that’s often hard to master. So if you’re looking for an imaginative spin on promoting your product, it’s definitely worth taking a peek at their pages.
