Instagram has evolved into a perfect visual platform for agencies, filled with photos of office parties, company outings, and creatives hard at work behind their Macs.


And while there were more than a few pictures of agency pups and craft beers, Instagram has also become a place where agencies can share behind-the-scenes shots of their latest work and highlight their accomplishments.

While there probably aren't that many CMOs who troll Instagram looking for their next agency partner, there is little competition and even more opportunity to make it your agency's platform of choice for attracting new talent and clients -- a differentiator when it comes to that next visual campaign.
