When Paris starring started Instagramming the homemade clothing creations she never could have imagined the social storm it was about to create stylists strangers and even celebrities slid into her DMS and begged her for a piece of her unique fashion range she stayed true to her roots and remains a small boutique brand personally replying to dm requests and producing her signature dresses locally Instagram is still her only marketing platform Starn has a lot to say about its credibility it's really an incredibly powerful tool for people who don't have investors or are small taking baby steps just like me.

5. MYMT

Movement more and more direct consumer businesses are popping up all over the internet and social media makes it possible movement is one of these brands in just five years it went from an idea to 80 million dollars in annual sales the founders jake cousin and Kramer LaPlante basically penned the playbook on building a successful digital-only brand in 2013 after successfully crowdfunding on Indiegogo a social network platform to connect startups with their future customers movement raised 1 million dollars in sales of their stylish and inexpensive watches this is when they migrated their audiences to Instagram and have a growing following of one million users they've encouraged user-generated content using the hashtag join the movement the founders also harnessed the power of micro-influencers and paid them to punt the brand subtly from relative obscurity to 7 million dollars in sales in their second year as time ticks on so does their business which is scaling up really well because of their ability to track exactly what does and doesn't work using social media's detailed tracking tools the precise feedback allowed them to tweak and curtail their marketing to be a finely tuned machine. 

6. Orabrush

The article is a modern furniture brand that was launched in 2013. they create brand awareness on Instagram where they create visual stories that tap into their viewer's emotions their well-curated Instagram account plants the seed that article is a desirable brand they don't go directly trying to sell a couch or a chair when their user is in the market for furniture they want to be front of mind articles CEO amir Begg sees Instagram as a perfect medium for brands like them that are aspirational lifestyle brands but he's clear that to keep customers posting pretty pictures isn't enough he must deliver better furniture at a fair price to get repeat customers and it seems like with revenue of 100 million dollars he has a comfortable chair at the table.

8. Goat Phone case

Goat case isn't trying to be a glossy brand on Instagram they describe themselves as the greatest phone case of all time and using some kind of wizardry have invented a phone case that sticks onto anything it is the ultimate weapon and tick-tock domination without its anti-gravity solution your selfie game remains average they use guerrilla marketing tactics and reposts from their fans Instagram feeds to create the hype from workouts to dance montages dog videos to shower shots and let's just say plenty of booties goat case shows that a strongly authentic voice can be as effective as a stylized brand millennial and gen Xers embrace real influencers over celebrities and respond better to a candid or authentic post rather than a retouched image.

9. Oliver Cabell

Scott Gabrielson started Oliver Capella in 2016 at the age of 27 with a passion to create a direct to consumer high-quality Italian leather shoes because they manufacture and sell directly to the public they don't need to add the big markups that wholesale and retail add to products before we buy them they also focus on quality and ensure each product is perfect this way their consumers are so delighted they can't help but share about it on their own social media Oliver Cabell taps into the power of micro-influencers who appreciate the same elements of minimalism and fair trade as their brand so the relationship is authentic the growing brand is a success in the making and after the first round of successful fundraising of 1.2 million dollars in investment it seems like investors believe in the brand too.
