Mercedes Benz

Mercedes-Benz is a renowned German luxury automobile brand known for its elegant design, cutting-edge technology, and superior performance. With a rich history spanning over a century, Mercedes-Benz continues to set the standard for automotive excellence worldwide.

Mercedes Benz seem to win every time with their social media campaigns. The one that stands out to me was back in 2013 when they created what I still believe to be one of the best Instagram marketing campaigns to date. Mercedes wanted to reach out to the younger audience so they hired five top Instagram photographers to each take the wheel of a new Mercedes CLA. Whoever got the most likes got to keep the car – so they all really worked at it!

By the end of the campaign, Mercedes has received:

  • 87,000,000 organic Instagram impression.

  • 2,000,000 Instagram likes.

  • 150 new marketing assets (stunning photos)

What lessons can you learn from this?

  • Think about your target audience.

  • What is a prize they would value?
