“During our most important campaign of the year, following a suggestion by LOV, we decided to test ads in Stories for the very first time. We were surprised how this Instagram format brought so many results and such a good return on our investment,” says Oreo BR ( @oreo ) activation manager Vivien Giampani. The world’s best-selling 100-year-old cookie had just launched their “Oreo Challenge” promotion, offering customers the chance to compete for trips to Barcelona and various other prizes. To publicize the promotion, Oreo created different videos tailored to stories showcasing the mini-games people could play on their website and the trip and prizes up for grabs. The agency LOV worked on the media strategy. Out of 17 types of media used in the campaign, Instagram achieved the fourth best cost per lead, cost per acquisition and number of impressions. “Without doubt, the key to our success was exploring the message in the most visually compelling, least disruptive manner possible in the space allowed.” 📷 by @oreo #igsuccessstories #nationaloreoday #oreo

"By leveraging this unique strategic framework, we were able to overcome many of the challenges often present in influencer marketing," says Anheuser-Busch InBev's US digital lead Victoria Vaynberg. Anheuser-Busch wanted to increase brand awareness of its Lime-A-Rita drink with an Instagram influencer campaign. Working closely with agency Hashoff to find key influencers, the beverage brand chose 3 influencers to produce exuberant photo and video ads. Facebook Marketing Partner Kinetic then promoted these ads to Lime-A-Rita's core demographic through the influencers' individual handles. "The combination of Hashoff’s technology and the power of Instagram ad products, proved highly effective in deepening our connection with female consumers and increasing relevance for Lime-A-Rita," Victoria says. The result? Creating more margarita moments by rocketing past the brand's limited organic following and reaching 8.57 million people. 📷 by @sophlog @ritas #igsuccessstories #nationalmargaritaday #🍹
