I need an explanation for this Article Writing question to help me study.

Choose a brand with a successful social media campaign on Instagram and write a paragraph walking us through their case study. (Google “successful Instagram campaigns” or “Instagram case studies” to find your brand.) You must cite your sources. *Don’t forget to include a Works Cited section at the end* Do not copy and paste information or you will risk receiving 0 credit for the assignment.

Answer the following questions:

  1. What is the brand and who is their target demographic?
  2. What were their goals and what did they do for the campaign?
  3. What were the results of the campaign?

Part 3 – Analysis (10 pts)

In your own words, describe why you believe this brand is successful (or not) on Instagram. List 3 strengths and 3 weaknesses. Explain one way you believe the brand could improve on Instagram.

Part 4 – Content Calendar (10 pts)

Create 2 new Instagram posts and 1 story (3 posts total) for your brand for a Thanksgiving campaign.

  • Your posts must include an image, a geotag location, at least one other tagged account (different from the account that’s posting), a caption, and 3 relevant hashtags.
  • Your story must include an image and a swipe up. The link can be to a website home page, product page, new blog post, YouTube video, or anything else.

Include images, captions, and links inside the assignment. You may include the items separately, or create a mock-post inside Instagram and screenshot it. As long as all required information is included.

Note about assignments: You must upload your assignment as one document only, and in the proper format (pdf). Failure to do so will result in a deduction of points or zero credit.
