Former #HootDog, Toby LittleDude can command an entire room simply by his very presence. And Instagram is one such place where his traits truly come out to play.
Needless to say, his account is a hit filled with good natured sass, making him stand out from the entire crowd. The spot-on and comical captions, his constant photo style accompanying his images have already set up a strong trend and brand voice.

Pam Loves Ferrari Boys
Only after the video of Pam driving a little red car wearing sunglasses got viral on Instagram did her account skyrocket to success! Similar to the imagination behind the video’s content, even Pam’s charm was pretty obvious.
Presently with more than 64,000 followers, Pam’s Instagram antics are still top-notch because of the well-oiled content highlighting her cute, lovable videos. Her videos are the ones that everyone can (in fact, do) watch time and again. They’re funny, innovative and incredibly cute.
Key Lesson– As a brand, you must always come up with persuasive videos to post on social media. Like Pam, even you can try out various types of videos and format.
Whilst Aqua Corg may have succeeded solely because of his good looks, use of hashtags has certainly helped him put together a follower base of more than 135,000. Since, as we all know, using hashtags are an amazing way to make it easier for people to find the content.
To avoid followers from getting sidetracked from the caption, though, Aqua Corg includes a few comments along with relevant hashtags. Some of the hashtags, for example, used on a regular basis entail #corgi, #dogsofinstagram, #corgibutt, #dogsofinstaworld and #corgistagram.
Key Lesson– Always make use of hashtags. These help you make the post easy to find and put related content together so that followers can discover them at complete ease. But ensure that you’re making use of only the relevant ones and cautiously. Because the last thing you’d want is to come off as desperate or spammy!

But make use of different hashtags with it.
