Now, gonna share one story about my brother, who is now verified. He just simple share his story how to he get verified on Instagram. Check out what he said.
I got my blue verification checkmark on Instagram. At the time, I only had 10,000 followers. Now for those of you that don’t know. I also own a marketing agency and we do a lot of like commercial work with big brands such as Mercedes-Benz and Corona.
Now it was about two years ago, that I got asked by Mercedes-Benz Canada to do a takeover on their account.
On this one project, we were going across Canada. And I was the one representing the takeover and taking photos of their cars. While we traveled across Canada in all these vehicles.
How these companies work is that there’s Mercedes-Benz Canada. There’s an agency that represents them, and then there’s another company, that does a lot of like the ad buying. Mercedes-Benz is a very big international brand. That spends a lot of money, especially on advertisements.
And of course, they would be spending money on Facebook and Instagram, because the two are owned by each other.
So, they spend a lot of money on digital ads.
Which means they more or less have a connection directly with Instagram.
Yeah! help for money
I kind of had that in mind and I emailed my contact at Mercedes. And I said would there be any chance that you guys could hopefully push forward the opportunity to get the Instagram verification since I’m doing a takeover on your account.
The benefits that Mercedes-Benz gets by me having the blue verification check mark is that no one else can slander their name during that project. If I’m doing a takeover and someone creates a fake Chris Hau account and then says all this bad stuff about Mercedes-Benz. It’s hard to distinguish which voice it comes from.
But if I have the blue verification, there’s a good chance it wasn’t me who was saying it. So, that helps make legitimacy for the takeover.
It also looks good on Mercedes-Benz. Because they’re hiring top professionals and Instagram people. So it looks good for all parties involved, including me and the company and the agencies that are involved in this project.
So, i sent them the email they’re like, Yeah, I think we can possibly make that happen. And then about a week before the campaign.
I woke up that day and on Instagram, I opened it up for Instagram verification, and then i saw it. I saw the blue check mark and i was just like! it worked.
