Instagram product placement
« on: October 13, 2021, 10:01:00 pm »


Hi all do any of you post your builds on Instagram if so be careful of what you post.
I posted my porsche 934 resto build and have been told to either take it down or set up a paid partnership with them as its product placement (I'm assuming it's because I have good year and castrol logos (amongst others)) I've deleted the post but if that's the case I think I will be deleting a lot more.

Could you pixellate the logos and see if they still want you to remove the images? You'd have thought that free advertising would have benefitted them!

But is it Instagram doing the demanding of money or the logo owners?  The former might want paying if they have found an excuse to think that they are being used as an advertising medium, the latter should be happy with free advertising.
