Around 2 months ago we requested verification on one of our clients’ Instagram accounts. They had 60k followers and the account represents a business. If you look at most verified instagram accounts, they’re either businesses or celebrities.

We requested the account verification by sending an image of the certificate of incorporation for this business. This isn’t enough though. After sifting through multiple verified accounts, we began to notice a commonality between each of them.

The reason we believe the account was verified is because the individual who owns the business has trademarked their business’s name. Thus, to have a higher chance of acquiring that special blue tick you should trademark™ your brand or business.
