An Instagram takeover is the process of "taking over" someone else's Instagram account temporarily and sharing content with their audience.
A takeover with LaunchGood involves sending content (images along with a description) for 3-7 days to firstname.lastname@example.org. We will then post once we have received all content.
If you're interested in doing a takeover of LaunchGood's Instagram, think about a specific theme or angle you want to take: a craft, skill, or hobby; a start-up or organization you’re a part of; or a trip you’re embarking on. A takeover should not read or look like an advertisement for your business, product, or organization. The idea is to give our followers a peek behind the scenes and a sense of why and how you do what you do.
Here's what we'll need
- High-quality creative images!
Some can be reposts from your personal account, but we prefer new content.
- Descriptions for each post
Keep the description accompanying each post to a short paragraph and include any relevant hashtags. We like to see first-person narrative descriptions - it’s all about storytelling!
Bio and Instagram handle
Send us a brief bio and your Instagram handle to include with each post.
Any specific instructions
Do you want some of your images to be part of the same post? Do some of your posts need to be posted at a specific time of day? Is there a location you want us to tag?
Let your family, friends, and followers know you’ll be doing a takeover, and encourage them to follow LaunchGood on Instagram.
Please also note: we’ll do a quick edit before posting, and may not post all the photos you send us.
