Bristol Media joins Instagram and we want our members to get involved.

Published on Wednesday, 10th August 2016

Instagram launched on 6th October 2010 and six years later is the fastest growing social media channel in the world.  So we thought we’d better jump on that, start to contribute and become one of the 300 million daily active users.

Over 95 million photos and videos are shared via Instagram every day with 80% of users coming from outside the USA and we know that many of our members, staff within member agencies and freelancers have beautiful images which could be shared too.

We launched our Instagram account @Bristolmediagroup at Vision in May this year, and we already have over 200 followers but that means we’ve got a long way to go! Luckily, helping us out will be the founder of IgersBristol, Jess Siggers, a talented photographer herself, who also runs workshops on how to make the most out of Instagram. IgersBristol now has 10,000 followers and Jess’ own Instagram @porthjess has a huge following of almost 38,000, so we couldn’t be in better hands.

We’ll be running a weekly feature on a different Bristol Media member and we’ll also have a member take-over day when you can tell us more about what you do, who you are and showcase some of your own videos and photographs.

There will also be a 2-hour Instagram workshop for members later in the year to help you make the most of your Instagram account whether that’s for your business, or personal use.

So why not get involved? Join us now on @BristolMediagroup; let us know if you would like to do a take-over and let’s get this thing going! Email Jess at to sign up either for a Bristol Media member feature or takeover. Or both!

This is an opportunity for Bristol Media members only.  If you would like to join Bristol Media, register here or email our Membership Manager Alli Nicholas.  Membership starts from just £40+VAT for freelancers.
