Instagram Video Is Already Being Used By Brands
Instagram just got finished showing off its new video features at the big “Facebook event,” and brands are already using it for marketing purposes.
Sam Biddle at Gawker’s Valleywag writes, Instagram creator Kevin Systrom is unveiling video for Instagram literally as I write this and Lululemon is already using it for marketing.”
Sure enough, here’s Lululemon’s video (click to view):
There will no doubt be plenty of this from brands very soon, especially given the stats Instagram dropped at the event. The company noted that it has 130 million monthly active users, and that it has seen 16 billion photos shared. It also sees a billion likes per day.
Here’s another weapon for all of you marketers to add to your arsenal. If Twitter’s Vine has been any indication, we’ll be seeing a great deal of branded Instagram videos in the near future.
Update: Business Insider has now put out an article showing that Urban Outfitters and Burberry have also started using Instagram Video.
