Instagram Contest: Where in Cincinnati?

July 17th, 2012 — 2:55pm

Calling all Instagrammers, or Insta-wannabes…

At Welt, we think Instagram is a great way to share photos using your mobile device.

This past week – okay, maybe week and half – Cincinnati, Ohio has had a lot going on, some of which has been captured by our very own brandling on Instagram…that’s why we’re giving you the chance to win a $50 AMEX gift card if you can correctly identify all 6 Cincinnati locations you see photographed in our Weltagram above. That’s lunch on us for 5 days…or 10 days if you are cheap like that…

How to participate in the Weltagram contest:

• Follow kim_sykes on Instagram (think: hints on our 6 featured Instagram photo’s whereabouts)
• Send us an email at social@weltbranding with your first and last name, your 6 guesses for each location, your Instagram handle, and of course, your contact information so we can contact you if you win

Whoever wins – or comes the closest to correctly guessing the location of all 6 Instagrams – will be notified by Welt next week. Tiebreakers will be decided by whoever has shared our promotion the most using social media…as judged by us.

Good luck and keep Instagramming!

Have a question about the #Weltagram contest? Or, do you just want to get in touch with us? Find us on Twitter at @weltguylarry, @alexandrahende1, @kimbrandling and @weltbrand. Or, if you are old school, just email us at social@weltbranding.com or give us a call! We’d love to chat, even if you don’t have Instagram…yet…

Why did Facebook Buy Instagram? Out of spite…

April 11th, 2012 — 8:08am

On Facebook, the single largest shareable is photos. Most of the people that use Instagram all have Facebook profiles, and even though Instagram works very well at what it does, it only really does one thing. This is strictly our opinion, but the reason that Facebook splashed out a cool bil. on Instagram is to spite its competitors.  Facebook had no intent of letting a Google get it, or a Twitter. But to be honest, we don’t think anyone at Facebook thought of either of them ascompetitively the most dangerous thing out there. We would be willing to bet that Facebook did this to prevent Instagram from teaming with a new or as yet unheard of potential competitor.

In fact, we’d go so far as to say that if Facebook were looking at the situation through cold calculations, they would have seen Instagram itself as a potential juggernaut. Instagram (as we mentioned earlier) does one thing well, and that is share photos. It could be argued that this “one thing” is raison d’etre of social media on the whole.  Facebook now owns the “one touch” of the industry.

Don’t believe us?
