Instagram Kicks off it’s first ad with some style: It’s Michael Kors

I am a big fan of Instagram. I really admire the story of it’s creation. A young entrepreneur builds a photo app in his spare time and sells it to Facebook for a billion dollars.

I guess truth is stranger than fiction. Today the photo app launched it’s first ad with style, why do you ask? Well because it’s Michael Kors, the fashion icon.

I think the images will work great. Let’s face it, there is nothing like a great picture. I mean a picture is worth a thousand sales in this case. Great coverage here from VentureBeat.

From the article:

Instagram released its first advertisement today and it’s a fairly pretty picture of a Michael Kors watch.

And that’s it.

The image is posted to Michael Kors’ own Instagram page and is then pushed out to anyone on the service marked as a sponsored ad, whether they follow Kors or not. Instagram, which is now owned by Facebook, showed off its ads product last week in order to prep its community. Originally, it was believed that Insta-ads weren’t going to show up until next year.
