The Hog Ring accomplished a lot in 2015. However, one of the things we’re most proud of is transforming our Instagram account into an industry “look book,” where we highlight the work of talented trimmers across the globe. By doing so, we aim to inspire trimmers to try new things and introduce auto upholstery shops to potential clients.
Here’s one example of how we did just that: Instagram user digidizzle recently published a short note of thanks on a photo we shared by Avees Custom Upholstery in Tracy, California. He wrote: “Thanks for posting work of the different guys that do upholstery. I’ll be taking my car to Avees next week. I would never have known he was just over the hill if you didn’t post this.”
If you’d like us to share your best work, follow The Hog Ring on Instagram and use the hashtag #TheHogRing every time you upload a new photo. For tips on how to get the most out of Instagram for your business, check out our article: “5 Tips to Instagram Market Your Upholstery Shop.”
