  • Intelligence Report: Instagram EXCERPT from the Intelligence Report: Instagram February 10, 2014 To access the full report, contact membership@L2ThinkTank.com Watch the Video THE WORLD’S MOST POWERFUL SOCIAL PLATFORM? Size vs Engagement Explosive growth, aspirational demographics, and unmatched engagement have secured Instagram’s place among the social media elite. Instagram amassed 150 million monthly users in three years—two years The Other Girl Instagram is often compared to the other visual darling Pinterest, launched six months before Instagram (October 2010). Today, Pinterest is a third of Instagram’s size and 23 percent of Pinterest users engage with the platform daily, versus 58 percent on Instagram.4 Other upstart visual and mobile platforms, including Vine, have entered the fray. However, within a week of launching video, Instagram passed Vine in shares on Twitter 5 and boasts 2.5 times the shares.6 The reach and appeal of the 15-second video format, ideal for ads, gives Instagram an edge (Vine limits videos to six seconds) with advertisers. The biggest threat may be newcomer Snapchat. However, while seven times more photos are uploaded daily to Snapchat, Instagram’s superior demographics—slightly older, higher income users—has greater appeal to marketers. Recently Instagram took direct aim at Snapchat with the December 2013 launch of direct messaging, enabling brands to engage in two-way conversations with consumers. 1.

Although an eighth of parent company Facebook’s community, Instagram registers 15 times the engagement and double the engaged user base (Total Community Size x Engagement Rate) of the mother ship. 93 percent of prestige brands now maintain a presence on the photo-sharing platform, up from 63 percent in July 2013.1 As teens migrate away from Facebook, Instagram has maintained its street cred and is the fastest growing global social platform. The visual platform acquired 60 million new monthly active users in 2013,2 the highest year-over-year growth (66 percent) among top 10 mobile apps.3 Prestige Brands January 2014, n=249 0.9% 0.6% 60,976 0.04% 218 million 0.3% 0.0% 1,256,088 0.10% 1,190 million 255,587 0.09% 300 million 0 500,000 1,000,000 1,500,000 Community Size Engaged Users Users x Platform Engagement Rate (MM) December 2013 2.3 1.2 0.3 0.1 Instagram Facebook Google+ Twitter 2

Prestige brands have abandoned Tumblr, and the adoption rate has declined. Instagram’s 2014 revenues are forecast at $250 million–$400 million,7 while mention of Tumblr was noticeably absent from parent company Yahoo!’s recent earnings announcement. 23% Instagram Linkedin 9% Tencent Weibo 9% Sina Weibo 6% Pinterest 6% Tumblr 6% Google+ 6% Picture > Thousand Clicks Visual media do more than communicate information, they inspire emotion and action. Serving a potent cocktail of visual and mobile, Instagram could be the first platform that delivers on the promise of social commerce via the power of usergenerated content. Featuring user-generated photos at the point of purchase boosts conversion up to 7 percent.8 However, most prestige brands are failing to translate Instagram’s engagement to e-commerce, as just 14 percent utilize Instagram UGC on their brand sites. -3% YouTube -3% Facebook -3% VK Myspace -12% L2 Intelligence: Instagram In August 2013, L2 surveyed prestige brands across 15 global social media platforms. We turn our focus to Instagram, evaluating performance and programming of 249 prestige brands on the platform. Our aim is to provide data, best practices, and case studies to help managers achieve greater ROI on digital efforts. Like the medium we are assessing, our approach is dynamic.

Thailand’s Siam Paragon mall was the most Instagrammed place in 2013.9 Unlike other Western platforms, Instagram (inexplicably) has been allowed behind China’s “Great Firewall,” and content is sharable to China’s Sina Weibo and Japan’s Mixi. A burgeoning Instagram economy has emerged in Kuwait, selling everything from sheep to lipstick. Outside of the U.S., Brazil, The United Kingdom, Russia, and Mexico round out the top five countries accessing Instagram.10 Across prestige brand accounts Instagram’s visuals require little translation. In the last five months of 2013, prestige brand Instagram communities in Asia-Pacific, the world’s largest consumer market, quadrupled. Eastern European prestige brand communities, led primarily by Russian accounts, record the highest engagement.

However, video posts account for only 4 percent of brand content. The expertise required to produce high quality short-form video remains a barrier for most brands. On average brand accounts post six images per week, versus less than one video post every two weeks (0.38 per week). Engagement on photo posts averages 1.5 times that of Instagram video posts. Reposted advertising and contest posts generate the most engagement. It is not a coincidence that the run time for Instagram videos is 15 seconds, the minimum length of a television commercial. It is rumored that the platform will sell Instagram video ads similar to television airtime.
