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 sense of why and how you do what you do.
Here's what we'll need
- High quality, creative images - we look for variety too!
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!
Send us a brief bio and your Instagram handle to include with each post.
Any special 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.
