Can you solve the Instagram Jigsaw Puzzle? 😉

You probably know, Instagram (a word combination of “instant camera” and “telegram”) is the mobile-first image based social network that gained its first 1 million users within 2 months of its launch and continue growing ever since.

It was founded by Kevin Systrom and Mike Krieger in October 2010, both graduated from Stanford University, and was later acquired by Facebook in April, 2012. Instagram was designed primarily for snapping and sharing photos with friends from their mobile device on-the-go and continues to grow and evolve as a platform, using all new tools and features for scheduling posts, editing, content managing, adding e-commerce ads and so on that will help you promote your brand effectively and connect with your target audience.

According to Instagram, the social platform now has more than 500 million monthly active users and more than 300 of whom use Instagram every single day. It’s no wonder why more and more brands are jumping on Instagram board!

Among the numerous social media platforms, Instagram presents a huge opportunity for brands to engage with their audience and tell their story in a visual context. The platform is ideal for showcasing your products and services in action, posting a teaser or sneak peeks into your brand new products or services before the official launch, taking behind the scene photos and videos to show how your products are made, posting special offers on your products or services or running regular contests to drive engagement.

Moreover, you can even make IG users feel more connected with your brand by encouraging them to share their experience with your product or services using branded hashtags and regram these photos on your own profile. It helps you create an emotional bond with your users that convert visitors into loyal customers.

Here is an example of Instagram campaign to inspire you.

In order to draw attention to its upcoming movie fest, the Toronto Silent Film Festival partnering with the ad agency Red Lion Canada, created the first ever Instagram Jigsaw Puzzle game using Instagram’s new ‘Save’ feature.

This year the Toronto Silent Film Festival focuses on newly restored films, some of them are being played for the first time in nearly a century. So, to let fans experience the thrill of restoring a lost film for themselves, the Toronto Silent Film Festival and Red Lion has come up with the Instagram Jigsaw Puzzle, a game that encourages users to piece together images from old movies. It may seem simple but with 21 pieces and lots of possibilities the puzzle becomes more challenging.

To bring this idea to life the agency built an Instagram account (@TSFF2017_puzzle) filled with scrambled puzzle pieces. To solve the puzzle users have to search for and save each piece in the correct order using Instagram ‘Save’ feature. Once it is done, the puzzle will appear in their personal “saved” feed. The first seven people who send a screenshot of their completed puzzle will get a prize from the festival.

So, are you ready to solve the puzzle? 😉

How to get rid of bad roads in the city?

P4 Ogilvy&Mather, Panama knows how to solve the problem of demaged roads and attract attention of local authorities.

Bad roads in the cities are very common and have become almost the norm. There is a huge contradiction of having super modern buildings, surrounded by roads with bad potholes.

Holes in the surface of a road make driving difficult or dangerous. You can often see drivers swerving to avoid the potholes and it doesn’t seem amusing. It often causes road accidents and car damages.

P4 Ogilvy&Mather with TV station Medcom in Panama have found a great solution. In particular, a device was installed inside potholes on the busiest streets of Panama. Every time it is run over by a vehicle this device sends a complaint tweet directly to the twitter account of the Department of Public Works.

Medcom released a special issue “The Tweeted Pothole” in Panama’s most influencial news show. They interviewed drivers to find out their opinion.

After a lot of complaints in Twitter the problem was taken into consideration. They achieved a good result. Potholes started disappearing.

Therefore people should be active to make authorities do what they obliged to do. 😉
