5 Instagram Hacks You Need In Your Strategy

Instagram has evolved from a simple visual driven content channel into a powerful tool you can use to significantly engage with consumers and drive sales. With a limited API and a plethora of information concerning the basics of Instagram marketing, there is still a lack of knowledge about the Instagram hacks marketers can use to give users the best experience possible. So what are they?

Add Links to Profile Bio

One of the first and most dreaded Instagram hacks comes as a result of that platform preventing clickable links in photo captions or comments. Other than paid ads, the only clickable link within Instagram is on your profile page. A common tactic is to add “link in profile” to a photo caption, sending followers to your bio where they can click on the link and view the content.

We’ve got some tips to get around this without totally disrupting the user experience on your brand’s Instagram.

Geotag Content

To get your content in front of a larger audience, it’s smart to geotag your images and videos. Users commonly scope tagged locations to follow other people in the same area. This will help sort your content in the discover section of Instagram searching, and will allow t to show up to relevant users who don’t follow your brand.

Watch Your Brand’s Analytics

A business account will show you your Instagram analytics and insights, including the best time to post based on engagement from your earlier posts. To switch your profile to a business account, tap on the round icon in the top right corner of your profile. Then click “Switch to Business Profile”, connect it to your Facebook business page and follow the steps to set up your business profile.

Quickly Edit Photos Using Saved Filters

If you’re rocking a great aesthetic (which you should be) you’re consistently using the same filters and editing techniques for your photos! Whichever filter is your favorite, make it easy to find by changing the order in which the filters appear on your edit screen. You can even hide those ones you never use.

Instagram hack of maintaining an attractive aesthetic with filter use example from Canva.

Canva is a wonderful example of a brand using a highly attractive Instagram aesthetic with filters.

Here’s how:

  • When posting a photo or video, go to Filter
  • Scroll to the end of your filters and tap Manage
  • Press and hold the three line icon next to each filter on the left-hand side of the screen to rearrange the order of your filters
  • Check or uncheck the circles next to each filter on the right-hand side of the screen to hide or unhide filters
  • Click Done to save your settings

Watch the Competition’s Instagram Hacks

Brands should always measure their efforts against the competition to know what’s working and things that could improve. For brands on Instagram, it’s smart to see what type of content your competitors publish on a regular basis. Then you can choose which methods could work for your brand and help build inspiration for future posts. To get notified when specific brands post, head to their profile and select the ellipsis button, then click turn on post notifications.

My Summer in the Bullpen

In baseball, the bullpen is where pitchers warm-up and prepare before entering a game. The bullpen is a critical and essential space for pitchers because if they don’t properly prepare before entering the game, they could injure their arm and/or give up hits that may cost their team the win.Internships for students are like the bullpen for pitchers. An internship provides students with a taste of “real world experience” by working in a career that they hope to pursue after graduation.

The Bullpen at Sparq Designs

It is a stepping stone to network with industry thought leaders, an opportunity to apply the skills you’ve learned in the classroom directly to the working environment, and to contribute your unique skills to the company as it flourishes in success. Getting a job these days is very competitive and having an internship will not only set you apart from other candidates, but they are important for college students to gain valuable experience before entering the workforce.

At the beginning of the summer, Nick, President of Sparq Designs transformed a hallway storage closet into a revolutionary and modern looking office where the interns could work collaboratively to create and execute ideas. From that point on, Jim, the company Vice President, declared the interns’ office to be known as “the bullpen.” As an intern I shared the bullpen with Andrew, the other Sparq intern for the summer, and we had many laughs, meaningful conversations, and were able to help and advise each other with various tasks and projects. It was such a rewarding experience to not only learn alongside Andrew, but to also gain a true and genuine friendship.

As the Digital Marketing Intern for Sparq Designs, my responsibilities included designing content that would be displayed across various social media platforms, being sent out on photo shoots, updating content on websites, and a parachute of additional tasks. It was so rewarding to see an idea that you thought of in a brainstorming session being displayed in a business or the utilization of meaningful engagement created for social media. Even though I was an intern I felt like a valued member of the team and was contributing to the overall mission, vision, and success of Sparq Designs.

Sparq’s Summer 2016 Interns, Bri & Andrew

An instance that I remember vividly in my mind is when we developed a marketing video concept in a morning meeting for one of our clients, Glass Gone Wow. By mid-day, we shot and edited the video and by the end of the work day, we were able to see audience engagement from the video across their social media accounts. It was amazing to see the birth of an idea in a morning meeting and then see it come to fruition in a matter of hours.

Some of my favorite memories from the summer included the adventures we had walking to Whole Foods on our lunch break, conversations over $10 salads and Guru Energy Drinks. Having the chance to get to know the Sparq team on a personal level outside of the working environment made my internship experience even more enjoyable.  

After completing my summer internship at Sparq Designs, I feel that the experience I gained has prepared me for when the manager calls the bullpen, and tells me, it’s my time to enter the game.


At Sparq Designs we thrive on our ability to create and foster relationships; relationships between brands and consumers, and the relationships between our clients and ourselves. Internships are one of the most valuable experiences a student can gain during their undergraduate studies. While classroom work is important, real experience can help get your foot in the door when you enter the workforce. Learn about internship opportunities at Sparq Designs here.

Q&A with Jacqui Holiday

Get to know one of Sparq’s fall interns, Jacqui Holiday! 

Q: Where do you attend school and what are you studying there?
A:I am attending Westminster College. I primarily study Media Art & Design and always include marketing & social media classes in my schedule as well.

Q: What’s your dream job?
A: My dream job would be creating trailers for movies. I love going to the movie theatre… just to watch the trailers! If Hollywood doesn’t pick me up then I would love to be a travel blogger/photographer. Getting paid to not only travel but share my experiences in those places would be awesome.

Q: At which store would you like to max-out your credit card?
A: I could definitely max-out my credit card at REI, especially when they have their “garage sales”. I’d head straight for Patagonia, North Face, then the wool socks. In that order.

Jacqui Holiday

Fall Intern Jacqui Holiday

Q: Which storybook/cartoon character do you relate to?
A: That’s a tough one- I’m not sure who I relate to the most, but my all-time favorite character is Sodapop from The Outsiders. “He has a finely drawn, sensitive face that somehow manages to be reckless and thoughtful at the same time. His eyes are dark brown— lively, dancing, recklessly laughing eyes that can be gentle and sympathetic one moment and blazing with anger the next. He has Dad’s eyes, but Soda is one of a kind. He can get drunk in a drag race or dancing without ever getting near alcohol. In our neighborhood it’s rare to find a kid who doesn’t drink once in a while. But Soda never touches a drop— he doesn’t need to. He gets drunk on just plain living. And he understands everybody.”

Q: What’s your favorite part of the digital marketing industry?
A: I love the fast-paced creative atmosphere. The different projects are so diverse so there’s never a dull moment. I like how the industry has a foundation of idea generation, and from there you can run with those ideas and execute them with any visual tool so there’s never a straight line you have to walk on. Living and working “out of the box” is a dream come true.

Q: What was your favorite TV show when growing up?
A: It’s a toss-up between Full House and That 70’s Show. I definitely spent way too much time watching those after school instead of doing my homework.

Q: Do you have any strange phobias/fears?
A: I don’t think I have any “strange” fears but I am deathly afraid of heights. Last summer I went to the top of the Eiffel Tower AND looked down, so I’ve put in my time. No more heights.

Q: What is the best thing you’ve crossed off your bucket list?
A: Last summer I spent a month in Europe. I traveled through seven different countries! I did, however, definitely catch the travel bug while I was there so my bucket list has just about doubled since then. I can’t wait to go back for more European adventures.

Q: NSYNC or Backstreet Boys?
A: NSYNC- I still have their Christmas album in my Itunes!

Q: How do you take your coffee?
A: I’ve actually come a long way with my coffee. I used to have to use an absurd amount of creamer, and just the other day I had my first cup of straight black. However my ideal cup of coffee would be Seattle’s Best with a splash of Hazelnut creamer.

Q: What is your favorite part of interning at Sparq?
A: Interning at Sparq has kicked off the first chapter of my life where I actually look forward to Monday mornings. It’s hard to pick just one favorite thing, but it’s a wonderful feeling to be in a place where your passion can truly come out. I love creativity and the impact it has on the world, and it’s awesome to be in an environment where everyone’s talents, ideas and creative vibes can thrive.


At Sparq Designs we thrive on our ability to create and foster relationships; relationships between brands and consumers, and the relationships between our clients and ourselves.

Sparq’s new Social Media Manager, Lizz Venanzi

Get to know her a little better!

Q: Give us some insight into your morning routine!
A: Someone once told me that one’s morning routine can tell a lot about a person. I never thought too much about it until I realized how much waking up and having a cup ofcoffee drives my day. Every morning I wake up and I make myself a cup of coffee with Italian sweet creamer and that’s all I need to feel ready to take on the world.

Q: Three apps that help with your work…ready go!
A: I am an avid “brain-stormer” so Pinterest and Instagram are definitely two apps that help get my creative juices flowing. Buzzfeed is also my guilty pleasure. As much as a quick Buzzfeed quiz can make me laugh, I really enjoy the voice that most Buzzfeed writers take on and it helps me loosen up and get comfortable writing.

Q: What music do you listen to while you’re working?
A: I like to listen to music that I have never listened to before. I have trouble staying concentrated when I am listening to songs that I know all the words to because it makes me want to bust out into spontaneous song and dance. Instead, I like to open Spotify and click “related artists” to the music I normally listen to and then give some new music a try! It helps me concentrate while also expanding my music library.

Q: What’s your dream job (besides working at Sparq =])
A: I would absolutely love to work for Starbucks’ Public Affairs team, specifically in their Corporate Social Responsibility group. I am incredibly interested in how green marketing and cause-related marketing can expand a business, oh – and (if it wasn’t too obvious) I love coffee!

Q: If you could sit down and have an hour-long conversation with any person alive or deceased who would it be? 
A: Ellen Degeneres!

Q:Who is your idol in the business world? Why? 
A: I am not sure if I have one specific idol. I have many people that have shaped my professional experience in a positive and defining way, specifically my dad and college professors. But, I tend to appreciate and lean towards people who are not afraid to do something out of the box and take risks.


The individuals at Sparq Designs believe in quality, and are huge advocates of setting ourselves apart from the competition. We do not believe in a cookie-cutter approach because we feel it’s more important to stand out in a crowd and we want our clients to do the same. We get excited about turning a concept into a design, developing a web presence, writing and optimizing content, and creating a buzz around a brand. Meet more of the team here.

Behind the Design – Jenna Sasala

Learn a little more about the crew ‘Behind the Designs’ with our newest Q&A series. Next up up is our Lead Graphic Designer, Jenna Sasala. Get to know her a little better!

Q: Give us some insight into your morning routine!
A: I’m such a routine person. Every morning I make my coffee & breakfast, do my devotions, workout (usually a couple mile walk or a bike ride), then, no matter how much time I’ve given myself, I’m usually rushing to get out the door. 😉

Q: Three apps that help with you work…ready go!
A: Basecamp is my new obsession! It keeps me organized with my daily, weekly, and monthly tasks. Other than that, I like to go old school – I’m always am jotting down to do’s, appointments, and notes in my hard copy planner.

Q: What music do you listen to while you’re working?
A: I’m a Disney nerd, so I love listening to soundtracks from “Bug’s Life,” “Saving Mr. Banks,” “Ratatouille,” and Pixar’s Greatest Hits. Occasionally I’ll throw in some Mumford Sons and/or Relient K.

Q: What’s your dream job (besides working at Sparq =] )
A: This is so tough, I feel like I get to do a lot of work I love to do already at Sparq! Honestly, I’d love to work for Pixar or Disney. I love their emphasis on quality over quantity, storytelling, and the way they value their employees.

Q: If you could sit down and have a hour-long conversation with any person alive or deceased who would it be?
A: Big surprise – Walt Disney. He overcame so much to find success, I feel like he’d have a lot of wisdom to share. In addition, his creativity was out of this world!

Q: Who is your idol in the business world? Why?
A: This is so hard, there are so many people who I love to follow! Promise Tangeman is one of my favorite web developers, Justin & Mary Marantz are my favorite wedding photography team, and Dave Ramsey is an all around outstanding business man. All of these individuals have a passion for their work and a drive to help people take their own projects and lives to the next level. They truly care about the success of others, which I very much admire.

Behind the Design – Adele Stewart

Learn a little more about the crew ‘Behind the Designs’ with our newest Q&A series. Next up up is our Senior Project Manager, Adele Stewart. Get to know her a little better!

Q: Give us some insight into your morning routine!

A: 6:15 (after hittin’ the snooze button a few times) and take my dog Jackson (“Jack”) out on a walk. Then I’ll take him back home and go on a quick run or walk by myself. I’ve stopped taking him with me because he LOVES to stop and sniff everything, and when I run I cannot be stopped! When I get home I shower and get ready before heading out to work. Even though I get my bags packed and lunches ready in the evenings, I still can never manage to get to the office on time – Pittsburgh, your traffic pattern bewilders me.

Q: Three apps that help with you work…ready go!

A: Pinterest – I get a lot of campaign ideas and insights from Pinterest. Often times, I will create private boards for clients and develop a campaign for each client based off of what I see.
iTunes – I purchased Apple Music back in October, and I have no regrets. It builds recommended playlists for you based off of your interests and I can listen to ANY song. It’s basically the same as a Spotify Premium membership, but I tend to like their recommended playlists a lot more. Music can either make or break my focus, so I have to choose my tunes wisely in order to be productive!
the Berry – the Chive’s sister site. I know that it can sometimes be a distraction, but it gets my mind right when I begin to find myself thinking about things other than work. I’ll allot myself a few hours to get work done, and then I will check out a Berry post for a laugh or an inspirational post. Actually, sometimes they give me ideas for our clients. Our Good Highdea campaign for Glass Gone Wow on 4/20 came from Berry inspiration.

Q: What music do you listen to while you’re working?

A: I actually pride myself on being able to find the right music for the right mood. House chill or oldies in the AM, Acoustics or symphonic in the afternoon. Anything you can sing along with or dance to leads to way more distractions.

Q: What’s your dream job (besides working at Sparq =] )

A: I’m a dreamer. If I could, I’d dabble in everything from event planning to acting. Currently working on a way to incorporate all of my passions into one complete – and possible – career. Everyone at Sparq is really supportive in the pursuit of all of our dreams, which is not something you come across every day.

Q: If you could sit down and have a hour-long conversation with any person alive or deceased who would it be?

A: My dad. He lived in Pittsburgh for most of my life, so now I am constantly trying to remember places we went to and people he knew. Places feel familiar, I’m just not sure if they actually are. Plus, I’d kill for another one of his guitar lessons I took for granted as a child.

Q: Who is your idol in the business world? Why?

A: Oh, Beyonce. I think I have always admired her ability to invest and create. I remember when she appeared in a Pepsi commercial alongside Britney Spears and Pink (I think I was around 12 years old at the time), and I just grew a strange attachment to her. Pepsi had their pop princess, the rebel Pink, and the incredibly fierce and fiery Beyonce who shreds through her part so seamlessly that you wondered why they even chose the other two. I wanted to drink Pepsi after that, and let me tell you, Pepsi to me tastes like acidic, liquid garbage. Apparently, this Pepsi deal was a multi-year one that raked in $50-million dollars. This money was also used as an investment to fund her future projects including her fashion label House of Dereon, and clothing lines with H&M and Topshop. She plans every aspect of her tour campaigns – audio, visual, and more, AND oversees her own image. She also has made it a point to remind everyone that success didn’t happen overnight. She has worked very hard from childhood to get where she is today. I aspire to be like her, and I am well-aware of the hard-work and networking that goes into it. I think whether people like her music or not, she should be recognized a business magnate within the branding industry, that has hustled to get there – it’s truly something to respect.

Stay In Your Lane and Create a Brand that Customers Trust

Often times people and organizations attempt to emulate or copy what other people and brands do that make them successful. Just because something works for someone else does not mean that it will work the same for other people or organizations.

If you think of the most successful brands in history, they all stand for something that is original and authentic to their being. These brands become iconic and are idolized for this reason. People buy into their core beliefs and their brand’s story because it is undeniably authentic and true to them. Great brands understand that to be great and to stay great, they must “stay in their own lane.”

unnamed

[Photographs: above, Burger King; others, Dennis Lee]

What does it mean to “stay in your lane?

To me, staying in your lane means learning how to be extremely self-aware. Brands who are self-aware completely understand themselves and what they stand for. Being self-aware of your brand, customers, competitor products and the marketplace makes it much easier to stay in your lane and to be authentic when it comes time to tell your story.

Too often you see companies, both large and small, struggling with marketing and product launches because they don’t stay true to themselves and their customers.

One example of a notable brand who I believe is having a difficult time with this is Burger King.

Burger King is one of the most well-known brands in America and they have been for many years. Their entire brand was built off of and sustained by the Whopper. America fell in love with their campaigns and their flame-grilled burgers. So what justifies a company like Burger King to create menu items like the “Big King” (a poor recreation of the McDonalds inspired Big Mac) and Grilled Hot Dogs?

Burger King and the Whopper spent over 20 years competing directly against McDonald’s and the Big Mac, until recently when they decided to add the Big King to their menu as if it could compete with the most famous sandwich in history. To me this is when Burger King started to stray away from its roots and attempted to reinvent themselves through an array of off-the-wall menu items.

If Burger Kings’ recent marketing and product decisions are based on losing market share, I feel this would have constituted a different approach. Why not put a campaign together that stays true to the core beliefs of the brand and start to reinvent the power and following of the Whopper? I think that this is a perfect example of a brand that went completely outside their lane and really should become more self-aware, focusing on the strengths and beliefs that made them extremely successful.

The simple truth is this; just because something works for my company and my market, does not mean that it will work well for you and your organization. Companies must become self-aware to the surroundings, customers, market conditions and competitors. Be authentic, stay in your lane, and stick to the things that make you great, because this is what makes people fall in love with brands!

Choosing an Online Marketing Company in Pittsburgh

Choosing an Online Marketing Company in Pittsburgh to Grow Your Business

Do you own a business in Pittsburgh or the surrounding areas? If so, you’re well aware of the importance of growing your business online. Over 80% of people conduct research online before purchasing products or committing to your service, and potential customers are doing the same about your business. The problem arises when those potential customers are unable to find you online—and you eventually find yourself needing an online marketing company in Pittsburgh to help grow your business and gain visibility in the search engines.

There are numerous ways that you can grow your business with the help of an online marketing company in Pittsburgh. Sparq Designs has multiple services to choose from, and your marketing strategy is customized to fit the unique goals of your business.

Business owners in Pittsburgh can grow their business in the following ways with Sparq Designs:

Brand Development

Finding your voice and telling your unique story is crucial for cutting through the noise. According to CBS news, the average American can see up to 5,000 ads per day. In order to make your business stand out, you’ll need to transform your establishment from a run-of-the-mill business to a standout brand.

Sparq Designs specializes in helping brands perfect an influential voice across all mediums, from your website content to your next Tweet.

Web Development

Poorly designed and outdated websites can actually make potential customers disengage from your business. If your company website is hard to navigate or doesn’t offer exceptional user experience, an online marketing company in Pittsburgh such as Sparq can help increase customer interaction. Furthermore, you can make updates to your website all on your own with the ultra user-friendly WordPress platform.

When you need the perfect balance of professionalism, functionality, and trendy design, Sparq Designs hits the mark every time.

Social Media

The average online marketing company in Pittsburgh will only update your social media account when you have a special or promotion. Unfortunately, this technique does not engage your customers and rarely results in sales.

Instead, Sparq Designs creates a custom social media strategy for your business in order to:

● Increase traffic to your website
● Build a social media following
● Encourage customer engagement
● Establish a voice for your business
● And more

Search Engine Optimization

At the end of the day, your Pittsburgh business needs to be visible in the search engines. Scoring top spots on Google can take a lot of time and effort, but Sparq Designs is up to the challenge of helping customers easily find your website online.

As your online marketing company in Pittsburgh, we only use SEO (search engine optimization) techniques that are recommended by Google. This includes implementing a keyword research strategy, supplying great content, and creating the ultimate user experience through your website.

Contact Sparq Designs: An Online Marketing Company in Pittsburgh
