Content Promotion on Ad Hoc Basis

We may promote content on an ad hoc basis.

Instagram Requirements:

        o Aspect ratio must be 9:16 or between 4:5 and 1.91:1. If you're having trouble capturing a story with the correct aspect ratio, we recommend taking the story with the camera in the Instagram App.

        o Reels must be 30 seconds or less in order for the content to be boosted, but depending on context of full video i.e. recipe content, share a cut down and full version for review.

        o Tappable elements - You can use up to five of the following interactive elements: location sticker, hashtag sticker, tappable text and @mention stickers. Or you can use one countdown sticker. Also avoid the polling sticker and the Swipe Up CTA on the creative that is intended for use with ads. You should avoid using emojis, GIFs, music stickers, link stickers, more than one sticker and more complex creative tools.
