Social media continues to be an intrinsic part of Lego's marketing strategy, with visual content a key way the brand drives engagement and fosters a sense of community online.
With kids and youngsters being a core part of its target audience, Lego also uses Instagram to focus on ideas for education and play.
The account typically makes use of video in this instance, using Lego for learning.
Promoting Lego Life With an audience of 2.4 million, last year Lego decided to replicate its success on Instagram with the launch of a new visual app – this time specifically designed for young users.
According to reports, Lego Life has proven to be a success, with the brand finding a distinct correlation between the number of times kids return to Lego Life and an increase in the sessions of playing with Lego.
Interactive ads Alongside regular brand content, Lego has also entered Instagram’s advertising arena, seeing success with its paid-for campaigns.
One in particular, created to promote its new ‘Boost’ playset, used the platform’s Canvas ads in Stories.
This is a key component of any successful advertisement, but even more so on Instagram, where users are likely to be particularly wary of branded and sponsored content.
Its focus on user generated content is key, as is posting content that encourages action or communication.
With a highly immersive, quality campaign, it shows that Instagram advertising can actually increase brand sentiment and even have a real impact on sales.
