We believe it is very important to keep our local community up to date with what is going on site. We set up an Instagram account specifically for Project MINT allowing us to get over 700 followers on Instagram.
This meant we could post daily updates of the project, major activities and milestones but also utilise the Live Instagram Story feeds that Instagram has.
This allows us to create short stories using pictures from site explaining what is going on in the pictures and giving the general public background information about construction. We take it in turns on site who will be doing the Instagram story by logging on to the Project MINT Instagram account.
We have got a lot of great feedback and a lot of views to our story and intend to do this more often especially when interesting events happen on site.
See the download below as an example of one of our Instagram stories.
