Che Stevenson

Okay, okay, it’s not exactly scientific and hardly official, but we have some top-shelf Instagrammers in our midst and they deserve recognition!

First, we’d like to establish that there is no ‘king’ or ‘queen’ of Instagram. We are simply awarding medals of merit in the following award categories. Based entirely on our subjective opinion, we present to you, the Bendigo businesses that shine in the Instagram world.

Most followers:
The Wall Collective

Here it is people, we have located the Instagram account with the most followers In Bendigo. Their gram is a shiny, happy album of quirky hooks and wall decal. One thing we absolutely love about their account is the use of their brand throughout curated images such as quotes and sales posts. We assume the other 36,000 grammers think the same!

Their posts feature a combination of reposts from local retail stores and inspirational quotes. It’s like a one stop shop right? We adore the consistency of their feed.

Best use of Instagram Stories:
Bendigo Advertiser

Best Profile:
Draw! The Meadow & Gathered

These two retail sister stores utilise the main features of a business profile. One thing that stood out for us was their Instagram bios; each profile contains a list of the brands they stock. Smart? We think so! If you love a brand and it’s listed in the first lot of text, it will capture your attention immediately and perhaps even to the website link which was put directly underneath!
