As highlighted in the video clip, Harley-Davidson chose to make use of the “Carousel” layout for the marketing campaign they ran promoting the Street 500. At its most basic, the Carousel layout works as a slide show, permitting advertisers to present multiple photos in a single Instagram advertisement. It’s unique because it’s a format that’s only offered on Instagram via ads.
Harley-Davidson did something so ingenious in this project that I haven’t seen prior to. In fact, I’m not even sure Instagram themselves thought of this when they made the design available to marketers. They selected to deal with the design as a view instead of a slideshow and utilized 4 pictures for each and every ad that, when scrolled with on an Instagram feed, became one titan, thorough mural.
This was an unbelievably creative approach to basically increase the advertisement room readily available to them, as well as they loaded this room with unique, aesthetically engaging pictures. It is very important to keep in mind that the bike, along with the tagline for every ad (e.g. “when the ocean calls”), loaded the initial picture in the Carousel (or in the panorama, the leftmost quarter of the image) – as Instagram puts it, “the first frame needs to work the hardest”.
Obtain creative with the tool. Instagram puts a lot of power in the hands of advertisers, particularly with the recent introductions of the Carousel format and, much more significantly, 60-second video. Flex those creative muscular tissues, and you’ll be rewarded with a campaign that’s both one-of-a-kind and also interesting.
