Monetising Instagram for brands: take two

In a perfect storm of storytelling and somehow trying to make Instagram a monetisable platform, your 14 year-old niece’s favourite social network introduced a clickable carousel function last week.

Marketers have been clamouring for a way to turn Instagram into a source of measurable revenue instead of a mere engagement/brand awareness tool.


How mouth-watering is Krispy Kreme’s social media strategy?

I asked the same question of Dunkin' Donuts last year, and frankly it was an easy one to answer.

Dunkin’ Donuts has been doing excellent work since it landed on social six years ago, with great personal interaction on Twitter, mouth-watering video content on Vine and dangerously tempting images posted on Instagram.

How eBay uses social media: Tumblr, Twitter and Instagram

Or… what is the point of following eBay on any social channel?

Are you ready to start paying for your social media?

Are you ready to start paying for your social media?

Last week, Snapchat’s announcement that it will charge $750,000 for a disappearing ad on its platform drove an audible gasp from the industry.  

Although this has resulted in mass shock across Marketing Directors and Community Managers, it does highlight one thing: the (always inaccurate) myth that social media is free is certainly over: 2015 is the year for paid amplification on social.


Magisterial content marketing and community management from Gibson guitars

As an occasional and quite dreadful guitar player I have a vague interest in what goes on over at Gibson and Fender. 

The marketers at these two iconic brands could probably rest on their laurels to a certain extent but both do a great deal in the way of content marketing and community management.
