Calling Out To All The IG Giveaway Enthusiasts! | The Weekly Cut

For a weekly dosis of fashion & lifestyle news, special deals & more exciting content!

What is according to you, more exciting between winning a few pounds from a £1 scratch card, getting through to the special bonus round at the local pub quiz and winning a giveaway competition on Instagram? Tough choice, isn’t it? That’s because all are based around the idea of getting a treat for either little effort or a small price.

It’s clear that IG giveaways have become a massive incentive to brands and companies to grow their audiences on social channels. With a global community of over 1 billion instagram users, and around 4.2 billion likes per day, it’s safe to say that the social media platform is a clear channel any brand should be investing time, and money into.

The great aspect of the specific platform, is that brands can easily use that visual aspect of the feed to not only advertise their products so that they can be seen and liked, but also give a very small number away to make people truly interested in their products. And guess what ladies and gents, we’ve got a very exciting one launching before the end of the month, so you better watch our feed and stories very closely!

Instagram in particular lends itself perfectly to what companies call “User Generated Content” which is the simple way brands can get users (like you and me) to advertise their products for free, or at a small price. Not only does doing Instagram contest help brands with their strategy, it also is a very easy way to increase your followers, build a loyal community of customers, and get direct customer feedback. 

Enough about the marketing side however, because what we’re really interested in is *where* these giveaways are taking place and *what* the best giveaways have been throughout the years. 


We LOVE hydro flask here at TWC and all have our bespoke bottle, which is why we’re loyal followers of their IG account and absolutely love their feed and giveaways! Best part about their products is not only that they are environmentally friendly, but they also invite everyone to have an active and healthy lifestyle. Got yours yet?
