Insta-buying Target’s store brands
Buying store brands through Instagram is a real thing now that Target has integrated the Instagram Checkout tool into its Target and TargetStyle accounts on the app owned by Facebook.
And, no surprise, the retailer was promoting the insta-buy tool very cleverly.
Within the standard Target channel, an adorable post appeared in my feed promoting the retailer’s Up & Up 4 in 1 Dog Shampoo —the bottle of the store brand shampoo visible behind a cute, soaped up, soaking dog. When clicking the “shopping bag” icon, a window appeared selling the shampoo and a pet grooming brush also featured in the post and also under the Up & Up brand. Click to add the items to your shopping bag, pay and have items delivered through the app.
Interestingly, in my email. I also found Target sent me some free essie Nail Polish to bring me back into the app and shop. Store Brands talked about how private brands get promoted on Pinterest, this Instagram play seems like a nice digital, impulse push for private brands.
