The target audience for both Rekorderlig and instragram is millennials (18-24’s) both women and men who are trend setters,  want to break the mould and are always looking for something new and exciting (YouGov 2016; Schawbel 2016; Olenski 2016).

Further over half of 18-24 year old’s check their social media times lines as soon as they wake up, this means that there is an allotted time where this audience is scrolling through Instagram with no interference. Allowing for a great opportunity to capture their interest with a sponsored Rekorderlig advert (Avocado Social 2016).

Within this target audience there is a equal split between male and female users (White 2016) this will ensure that neither gender is missed and both are target simultaneously. Moreover the execution of the sponsored advert works with text layered over the top is perfect for Instagram, as users are 40% more receptive to pictures and basic text, sparking interest and click throughs to the Rekorderlig website (Palmer 2015; White 2016).

Images on Instagram are perceived by users as 2.8x more imaginative, 2x more creative and 2.8x more distinctive than other social media platforms, fitting to the tone of voice of the sponsored advert and the brand (WARC 2016). Further 29% of users said that Instagram helps them to discover new things and ideas, and 53% specifically use Instagram to seek out new content and ideas, making Instagram a good tool to use for this target audience (WARC 2016).
