Organic Social Media Examples

1. Zoom – Sharing Pro Tips for Users

Showcasing product features on social media is a great way to interest prospective customers and provide value to existing customers.

And yes, this is paramount for SaaS brands, as Zoom proves.


What we love about this post:

Concept: For a brand that provides collaborative/team communication solutions, Zoom knows the importance of pro tips for its users, as it’s a win-win for both parties. In this post, Zoom announces its new app for Apple TV 4K, which allows users to join Zoom Meetings from the biggest screen in their home. 

Copy: “Zoom on the big screen (at home!) 📹 Now, on your Apple TV 4K, you can connect with colleagues, friends, and family on Zoom!” is all the copy needs to thrive. It spurs interest in the target audience and convinces them to click to see the new app for Apple TV. It’s great.

Content: Zoom cleverly knows that high-level meetings often use big monitors and that sometimes, quality is lost in these. With the new app, however, users can now leverage their big-screen, high-definition TVs in their Zoom calls. The result? A better product experience for their most valuable audiences.

2. HubSpot – Timely, Relatable Content

HubSpot never misses. In this post, they leverage several content marketing practices that we can’t help but admire.

What we love about this post:

Creative: HubSpot came in with a captivating rage, which sure worked on most of its audience. Questions are always catchy, and matching a compelling caption with resourceful graphics is powerful.

Copy: The copy is all shades of “personal” and “points”. Copy that emphasizes what readers gain tends to be more successful. The post categorically mentions the reader’s life and business and gives relatable points in a visually compelling way. Starting with a captivating question and ending with an engaging one, the copy asks the audience about their take and what applies to them. This puts the reader in engagement mode – one of the ultimate goals of the copy.

Content: The post didn’t target only the corporate field. It considers the reader’s personal life and seeks to grow their business almost equally. This shows that the brand understands the different needs of its audience, and condensates that knowledge into a single, digestable post.

3. Shopify – Promoting Existing Assets

There’s a resonating engagement with services that leverage existing assets. Shopify’s content strategy is full of surprises, and the audience loves this.



Creative: Shopify is leveraging existing assets – in this case, Shopify Credit – to boost the satisfaction of its audience.

Copy: Shopify addresses a key audience pain points (zero interest credit + cashback) in a simple, no-frills, manner. The copy doesn’t fiddle around and goes straight for the jugular, showing Shopify’s understanding of its audience’s needs.

Content: This post is a classic LinkedIn carousel. The content follows a standard structure, covering the definition (what), reasons why, and benefits of adopting Shopify Credit while providing a link for more detailed information. Flawless victory!

4. Taboola – Putting a New Spin on Slideshow Videos

Taboola takes a different approach to resound its efficiency to its audience. Picking on a product, the public advertising giant reminds us of the power of no-sound video ads.

What we love about the post:

Creative: Video ads are popular in the social media strategy space. Especially suitable for its “Do Not Disturb” audience, you don’t need to use the volume key to scoop the content of this post. With compelling graphics, mouth-watering images, and a sprinkle of social proof, Taboola walks the walk.

Copy: The text and video-based copy call attention to the platform’s strength. It unanimously informs the audience of what they stand to gain by leveraging Taboola. The team leverages social proof by using figures, which may switch on the interest button of potential users.

Content: The post comes in with a season, and that’s pretty much relatable. It further holds the reader’s interest with a clear, no-sound video showing the product’s impressive performance on their network.

5. Hootsuite – Finding Creative Ways to Engage

Social media posts can be as much fun as educating. Hootsuite creatively relates this while marketing itself. We tried not to laugh too hard and couldn’t help but notice the strategic moves in this post.

What we love about it:

Creative: This post is nothing short of creative communication. It teaches the audience tips on the job and the common mistakes to avoid.

Copy: Using a captivating introduction, the post steals the attention of HR professionals. Communication is critical, and we don’t have to wait for the pros to handle the basics. We love how the post singles out errors without necessarily making a mess of the slides.

6. Shipt – Team Member Spotlight

The human angle will always matter in social media strategy. Shipt understands this and leverages humans as recipients and facilitators of its services.

Here is what we love about the post:

Creative: Using just two frames tells the simplicity of this post. Humanity resonates with it, as evident in the text and graphics.

Copy: The text welcomes us into what Shipt is doing to improve humanity in partnership with the government. It goes further to show its moves in an easy-to-follow illustration.

Content: The post banks on the conference to announce a part of its multidimensional service to shoppers. In doing this, the message scores two points – calls attention to Shipt’s Corporate Social Responsibility and boosts brand reputation.

7. HubSpot – Employee Takeover

We love strategies that create space for humanity. HubSpot lets us know it’s not (always) about conversions and monetary gains but also human growth and development.

What we love about the post:

Copy: The copy is straightforward, and communicates HubSpot’s investment in its Engineering team.

Content: We can say HubSpot knows the attention-grabbing game too well. Leveraging the “question intro” again, this post’s content steals the audience’s attention. This is a people-focused post, and we love that it has a male and female figure, just enough to tell a workplace vibe.

8. Gary Vee – Using Image Text to Drive Traffic

Gary tells us image text can be a captivating communication strategy. But this particular post is not ordinary. We singled out its uniqueness and all its shades of engagement.

Creative: Image-text posts are unique in their way. The post uses a human image and a call to action that prompts the audience to read. Every key message is accessible at a glance with a straightforward pathway to the video resource.

Copy: The copy stands simple and direct. It doesn’t use any extra compelling words. Instead, it leads the reader to take action. We find it interesting that the human figure and text all direct the audience to take action.

9. Amgen Oncology – Engaging the Audience with Quizzes

Amgen takes the audience on an awareness journey by bringing them into an interactive world of self-health.

What we love about this post:

Copy: it’s interesting that the copy won the audience’s attention with a question and retained it with easy-to-follow graphics. The color code is fantastic, and the slides combine as many basics of Leukemia as possible.

Content: An unaware audience gets a basic understanding of what Leukemia is. The post further spirals the reader into another stage of the awareness test, with a constant reminder of the celebration being WLD22 #BELEUKEMIAAWAERE.

10. BGCI – Leveraging User-Generated Content

Want to learn how to weave a hashtag into your content calendar? Botanic Gardens Conservation International is PRO at it. We find inspiration in the straightforward copy.


Here is what we like about the post:

Creative: You’d think it’s nothing out of the ordinary, and you wouldn’t be wrong. However, it keeps true to the company’s mission and showcases it in a simple, approachable manner..

Copy: We love how the copy didn’t take much space, raking the audience through what matters: Conservation and community-building efforts.

11. RoboKiller – Relatable Humor 

Spam-blocking champion RoboKiller has mastered the use of relatable humor to pass messages across. The post below shows how they can nail relatable humor and creator collaboration.


Need this Robot in my life 😭 Fool the scammers and stop the spam calls with @RoboKiller #RobocallRevenge #Robokiller #ad

♬ original sound – Cliff Benfield

What we love about this post:

Concept: The “fool the scammer” message was effectively and humorously passed. It employed a relatable storyline and delivered the promotional message creatively.

Copy: The copy is the most relatable part of the entire post. It uses a common scammer narrative and twists it to let people know that with a particular app, they can fool the scammer. Brilliant, humorous copy! Get the scammers to pee in the pool. Now, who’s the fool?

Creative: The video is easy and fun to watch as it keeps one glued within the first few seconds. Who says a good, humorous cartoon cannot serve an advertisement purpose? RoboKiller proves the haters wrong..

Caption: The caption gave an excellent finishing blow to whatever doubts aviewer may have concerning the content. It rounds up the advertisement post with a CTA that lets prospects know why they need the RoboKiller app.

12. Canva – Reinvigorating Media Coverage

Canva will snatch an opportunity when they see one. This post shows us all about it, and we love to see it!

What we like about this post:

Creative: This video shows the benefits of using Canva and how it has helped USA Today journalists boost and simplify their work processes. It employs storytelling, visual appeal, and color to keep viewers interested. 

Content: Rich storytelling makes this post shine. It directly states that Canva is one of the reasons why a newsroom works seamlessly. It doesn’t directly market itself – instead, it repurposes media coverage to deliver.

13. Taco Bell – Jumping on Silly Trends

Trends are like the sugar in the tea of social media marketing. Trust Taco Bell to leverage these trends whenever the opportunity arises.


What would you do with 30 days of tacos? Introducing TacoLoversPass, a taco a day for 30 days. @connerchanttt

♬ original sound – tacobell

What we love about this post:

Creative: Trends can be a double-edged sword, but Taco Bell certainly got it right with this one. It captures life activities for the everyday man, from the monotonous ones to the celebratory ones, and then hints at what including tacos in your daily activities for 30 days can look like with the taco lovers pass. Relatable, human, and emotional.

Content: By promoting the tacos challenge and making viewers see themselves eating tacos for days, the brand gets all taco lovers on board.

14. Dave Gerhardt Marketing Group – Repurposing Podcast Content

You know we’re fans of making your content work smarter, not harder. For example, repurposing and reposting podcast content is a great way to fill out your content calendar with fresh, new content.

Dave Gerhardt does that with his marketing podcast.


What we love about this post:

  • Creative: Audiograms are a pretty popular way to repurpose podcast content, but they’re often not very visually engaging. Gerhardt gets around that by adding a few simple elements: the cutout of his face, the lightly animated elements, and the subtitles for watching in “stealth mode”. Together, these elements grab and hold the viewers’ attention in a way that just the audio waveform in the background couldn’t do on its own.

15. Sculpt – Distilling Large Ideas for Social

People listen to their friends, colleagues, and community members when making sales decisions. Here at Sculpt, we understand that and pass the message effectively in this simple yet colorful post.


What did we do well in this post?

Copy: The copy is adventurous, and we love that it seeks to onboard organizations or CEOs who haven’t considered Employee advocacy.

Content: Not giving all there is, the content shows authority without much talk. Engaging and converting content is typically sharp, multidimensional, and people-focused. This post provides additional communication with infographics, and this helped to understand the message better.

Creative: The post approaches the issue from a compelling angle. Since there is no exact industry, brand, or company type that cannot leverage employee advocacy, the post is readable and communicative.

16. MoxiWorks – Savvy Image Text Placement

Mixing text and images is no extreme sport, but if your image-text placement is conflicting (or just not easy on the eyes), it can ruin your intentions. 

Real estate tech platform MoxiWorks uses image and text placement in a straightforward and relaxed way.

What we love about this post:

Creative: Simplicity works. Meanwhile, knowing how to slay it is equally critical. MoxiWorks did justice to this creative approach by using one image, a great call-to-action, and a short selection of colors.

Copy: It’s what a copy should be. Precise, straight to the point, and spurring action. In seven words, the copy lets the post viewers know that with MoxiWorks, you can get more customers and sell more homes as a real estate agent. Perfecto!

Paid Social Media Examples

17. Moz – Standing Out with Colorful Ad Creative

We mentioned using bright colors to stand out in your audience’s feed in the earlier section on organic social. The same holds true for paid media.

Moz does an excellent job of grabbing attention with bold color choices.

Colorful Example of Facebook Ad from Moz

What this ad does well:

  • Creative: The color palette is bold, but not so bright that it hurts the eyes or distracts from the message. The lines and graphical elements draw the eye into the center of the image,  where there’s a human face.
  • Copy: Strong, minimal copy studded with impressive, curiosity-raising stats gets the point across quickly and efficiently.

Clever targeting: This ad is targeted to people who like marketing and marketing agencies, so a case study link makes sense. 

  1. Airtable – Bringing Creative Flair to Ads

You’re more likely to reach prospects with paid social, so channel some of that creative energy (usually reserved for organic social posts) into your ads instead to hit your social media KPIs.

Airtable is a great example of a company that builds beautiful ads but doesn’t spend a lot of time on its organic presence – and that’s ok.

What we like about this ad:

  • Creative: The illustrations combine an eye-catching style with funny captions to grab and hold attention in the feed. This same illustration style is present on the Instagram account, creating a cohesive, branded look.
  • Copy: Ad copy doesn’t have to be dry and boring. Airtable illustrates that with a short, witty copy that delivers an effective value prop.
  • Landing page: The idea of using your Instagram account as a landing page is both unique and aesthetically pleasing. It’s also a great move for brands that haven’t developed a consistent organic strategy but are starting to run ads.

19. Adwerx – Savvy Image Text Placement

Ad copy is definitely important but ad image copy is even more so. Check out how Adwerx uses image text to maximum advantage in this example:

Facebook Ad Image Text Example

What we like about this ad:

  • Creative: Clean, seamless design. It pops against the white of the feed and draws the eye from the feed into the middle of the image.
  • Copy: This ad recognizes that the image comes first, not the primary text. That’s why the main, impressive stat is introduced in the image text and then readdressed in the primary text.

20. Homesick Candles – Aesthetically Pleasing Video

Don’t underestimate the power of clean aesthetics. Homesick Candles consistently nails that in their ads.

Cinemagraph-Style Video Ad Example

Watch the whole ad here to feel a little homesick.

What we like about this ad:

  • Creative: The direct messaging text and subtle cinematography of a flickering candle flame make for a minimalist but aesthetically pleasing ad. It’s also a great example of a simple way to reuse and refresh product shots for your Shop Now ads.

21. Firstleaf – Casual, Compelling Copy

Do your ads sound stilted and salesy or do they sound like your brand? 

Firstleaf approaches ad copy with a casual voice, which is fitting for a trendy, millennial brand.

Firstleaf Facebook Ad Content

What do we like about this ad:

  • Creative: Humans trust other humans, remember? By including a human element in their product shot, Firstleaf is triggering that response in prospects viewing the ad.
  • Copy: Great, casual copy referencing a line from a popular comedy film makes this ad feel less sales-y and more conversational – all while operating within the classic Problem, Agitate, Solve framework.

22. Kodiak Cakes – Leveraging Testimonials in Shop Now Ads

Testimonials are a powerful tool for selling for a straightforward reason: people trust other people’s recommendations. 

See how Kodiak Cakes uses a testimonial in their ad copy 👇


Shop Now Facebook Ad Example from Kodiak Cakes

What this ad does well:

  • Creative: The carousel gives the feel of shopping in an online catalog, and the photos themselves are aligned with the brand’s lifestyle positioning. Kodiak Cakes’ product isn’t pancake mix, it’s the idea of outdoor adventure.
  • Copy: Using a glowing testimonial as the ad copy is an effective tactic.

23. Calm – Delivering Value with Their Ads

Can you create an ad that adds value to your prospects’ timelines…even if they don’t buy anything?

Yes, because value can mean different things – education, entertainment, or, in the case of Calm, mental wellness and self-care.

Motion Graphic Facebook Ad Example

Take a 20-second meditation break and watch the full ad here.

What we like about this ad:

  • Creative: Apart from being colorful and eye-catching, this video ad does well because it showcases a product feature right in the timeline, allowing prospects to experience the app without having to download it. 
  • Copy: While the primary text copy is strong and addresses the pain point, the important copy in this ad is the video text. It guides viewers through a simple breathing exercise, providing value before asking for a sale with the CTA.

24. Coverage Book – Illustrating Product Benefits From a New Angle

Telling the same story (Before-After-Bridge) from a new angle can make it feel fresh again.

See how Coverage Book did it.

What this ad does well:

  • Positioning: The copy tells a story that positions the product’s benefit for a better user experience. This is a great tactic for B2B brands to use.

25. Carta – Reaching Ideal Users

How can you target your ideal user more effectively?

Get specific. Let them know that this ad is meant for them like Carta does in this example.

Exact Match Copy in LinkedIn Ad

What we like about this ad:

  • Copy: It’s clear to any CEOs reading this ad that the product has been designed with their unique challenges in mind. By using exact match title and role in the copy, Carta drills down to reach their ideal user on a more personal level.

26. Tealium: Getting Specific with Account-based Marketing 

Account-based marketing (ABM) is all about turning your dream clients into your actual clients.

Check out how Tealium tailors every part of its ads to stand out in the feeds of its target accounts.

Example of ABM on LinkedIn

What these ads do well:

  • Copy: Tealium calls out their target accounts (in this example, Nationwide and Capital One) in three different places: the ad copy, the image text, and the title (the text in the gray box at the bottom, with the URL). Ad customization is the name of the game.
  • Creative: While the bright colors are likely to stand out in the feed, it’s the targeted copy stands even taller. “Nationwide” and “Capital One” are highlighted, drawing the eye immediately before the user reads the full copy.

27. Optimizely – Making the CTA the Focus

Grabbing your prospect’s attention is a task that you must complete in 2 seconds or less. And when conversions is the name of the game, that means that the prospect’s attention should be guided towards your value proposition and call-to-action (CTA).

Optimizely uses a pop of bright color in their ad creative to draw the eye down to the CTA button.

Facebook ad example from Optimizely

What this ad does well:

  • Creative: The minimalist design here works toward drawing your eye down to the CTA button. The black background doesn’t distract, but instead allows the yellow accent color to pop, drawing the eye down to the CTA. The image text is easy to read and clean but still eye-catching with its clever design.

28. HubSpot – Eye-Catching Animations

When you’re trying to stop thumbs, your ad creative is one of your most powerful tools. You want something that helps stand out in your prospects’ overcrowded feeds.

HubSpot knows that a little bit of movement is often enough to catch and hold users’ attention.

Facebook Ad Example from HubSpot

(View the full animation here)

What we like about this ad:

  • Creative: The animations are functional: the white space makes the image text easier to read. In addition, the animations enhance the image without detracting from the human element, which performs well.
  • Copy: Both the ad and image copy are concise and targeted, quickly illustrating value.

29. Incogmeato – Turning Up the Heat with a Poll

X and LinkedIn’s native poll features are excellent tools to drive engagement and that extends to sponsored posts featuring polls as well.

Check out how plant-based food brand Incogmeato did it below.

Example of Sponsored Twitter Post from Incogmeato

What we like about this ad:

  • Creative: Adding a graphic to the poll is what took it to the next level. The image copy draws the eye first and calls for interaction in a playful, slightly antagonistic way.
  • Copy: The borderline-inflammatory messaging encourages dialogue without being offensive.

30. Recess – Retargeting with Venn Diagrams

While you don’t have much time to get your point across in an ad (remember, 2 seconds or less), you can use visuals to communicate faster.

There are many ways to achieve this. Mocktail brand Recess used a Venn diagram in this retargeting ad, which struck us as something new and fresh.

Example of Facebook Ad from Recess

What this ad does well:

  • Creative: Overall, this graphic is very aesthetically pleasing and on-brand — a soothing color palette and casual lowercase typography. The standout feature, though, is the use of the Venn diagram. It works as a kind of visual shorthand to communicate their messaging quickly and represents a successful case of visual synthesis.

31. MainStreet – Breaking the Fourth Wall

Sometimes, the best way to break up the monotony and stand out in a feed is to acknowledge the obvious: hey, this is an ad and we’re talking to you!

Breaking the fourth wall is unexpected and refreshing, as proven by the tax credit platform MainStreet in this promoted X post.

promoted tweet from MainStreet that breaks the fourth wall with humorous copy

What this ad does well:

  • Copy: Both the image text and the primary copy grab attention immediately and communicate the value prop well. More impressive, though, is how the copy also works as a lead qualifier. The ad simply asks the user not to click the ad if they don’t meet the criteria, which feels engaging and compelling.

Example of Consistent Branding on Square's Instagram

39. Steak-Umm on X – Brand voice

Snarky, witty commentary from a food brand? We’ve seen it before, but not quite like this. Wendy’s social media manager crawled so that Steak-Umm’s social media manager (AKA Nathan Allebach) could run – and also dance on TikTok with a Steak-Umm box on his head. X is where things took off for Steak-Umm, though.

Follow if you like:

  • Brand voice virtuosos: Human, witty, self-aware, and slightly absurd, Steak-Umm’s X voice is a persona unto itself. While it doesn’t have much to do with frozen steak, that’s kind of the point, as evidenced by the brand’s viral fame.

Follow if you like:

  • Colorful feed: While most of their ice cream comes in yummy tones of brown, pink, and cream (you know, normal colors for ice cream that’s not full of food coloring), Van Leeuwen’s posts always incorporate fun pops of color – either in the background or the ice cream cartons themselves.
  • Amateur and professional photography: Van Leeuwen manages their IG feed with a great mix of stunning, professional product shots and more casual, “iPhone photography” of relatable moments or just fans enjoying their ice cream. The result is both balanced and aesthetic.

43. Gong on LinkedIn – Engaging Text and Color Discipline

Another B2B SaaS brand with a great LinkedIn presence, Gong is a sales insights and analytics tool for remote teams.

Follow if you like:

  • Engaging text posts: Looking at Gong’s LinkedIn page, you’ll see it’s not flooded with pretty graphics or fun videos. It’s mostly… text posts. Why does it work? A few reasons. Their consistent format — all caps headline followed by a double-spaced exposition — is easy to read and digest. Their straightforward, first-person voice feels casual as if you’re talking to a friend. And finally, they consistently provide value. The majority of their posts are full of punchy, actionable advice for sales professionals.

Examples from Gong's LinkedIn Company Page

Seismic provides businesses with customer service and sales training solutions. Their LinkedIn page features their customers, team, and tons of helpful info for platform users.

Follow if you like:

  • User-first focus: Seismic’s LinkedIn is full of great info for users, made with those users in mind. Their article and webinar teasers are easy to read, the main point of any post is clear before the fold/’see more’ tab (LinkedIn truncates text at 140 characters), and they highlight their customers as stars in a regular series.
  • Consistent branding: The color consistency is aesthetically pleasing and cohesive. It’s also nice to see a brand that uses lots of pics and illustrations instead of stock photos, which feels more personal and authentic.


45. Dooly – For Memes and Thought Leadership

Brands that know their audience well are hitting it right. Dooly’s LinkedIn page is all shades of fun and life.

Follow if you like:

  • Relatability: Dooly meets our eye with something different for every significant scroll we make. From engaging memes to attention-grabbing videos, you can scroll to the bottom page if you have the whole day.
