Why You Should Let Employees Take Over the Company Instagram

We told you about the success of influencers taking over our instagram account, but we also love to hand the reigns over to our employees.

Another Take on Takeovers

Takeovers aren’t just for Instagram superstars! Why not give your feed a more personal take by allowing employees to document “day in the life” with photos?

We’ve found that this is a great way to crowdsource instagram content, it gives our employees more of a feeling of ownership over our account, and it’s great for recruiting.

We were already encouraging employees to share photos from around the office with #blindsdotcomlife, but this opportunity took their involvement to the next level.

Below are a few of our favorite posts from recent employee takeovers.

We’re handing over the reigns to another of our awesome employees! Today it’s Patricia @patriciaplus_style + we’ll let her introduce herself! Follow along all day at #myblindsdotcom. ___________________________ Howdy Y’all, I am Patricia the Quantifier of Awesome of! What I do is Quality Assurance for our Customer Service department to help everyone continuously improve, hunt for Best Practices, and find opportunities to develop skills. Mainly this involves listening to phone calls, reading emails, and live chats to see what our customer experience is like. December will mark the beginning of my TENTH year here and I still love this place as I did the first day I started my career here. I make it a point to still have a lot of fun on the job because I believe it is not possible to love what you do if you are not happy while doing it. It is nice to meet all of y’all, and I hope you enjoy my Instragram Takeover! -@patriciaplus_style #blindsdotcomjobs #blindsdotcomlife #orangelife #coolesttitle #rockbeingyou #bestpractices #QA
