3 instagram tips you should try now!

July 16, 2017 in Social Media - No Comments - 2 min read

I love Instagram – let just admit it, every time Instagram has a new update of evolves, snapchat dies a little more. And I’m okay with that, the platform literally has nothing else to offer. Whereas Instagram has a whole visual network for your stories to expand on. It’s public and its good.

So get into the instastories game with these three tips

Screenshot old photos from your Camera Roll to post them to your Instagram Story.

For now, you can only add photos taken within the last 24 hours to your Instagram Story.

But here’s an easy hack that’ll let you post throwback pictures. Go into your Camera Roll and screenshot any old photos you want to share. Then, open Instagram and swipe up or down on the default Instagram camera screen.

You’ll see the photos you just screenshotted under “Last 24 Hours,” as pictured above. That way you can play with having high-quality photos taken previously, allowing your stories to be as chic and captivating as possible. Unfortunately, for the time being, duplicating Live photos or videos on your iPhone doesn’t work the same way.

 

Mention other accounts 

One of Instagram’s biggest advantages over Snapchat is that you can actually tag other accounts in your story. They get a notification that you’ve done so and It’s a great way to give a shout-out to another business or showcase an influencer in a takeover! It really allows that content to lead onto something else.

Just make sure your visual content is high quality!

Insta-stories and hashtagging

Instagram recently announced a new way to use the social media platform, and it’s great news for those who love to travel like a local, Instagram introduced location and hashtag stories on their Explore page, which are, simply, stories curated automatically by Instagram from users who have used location stickers or hashtags on their stories. Users can also search any location around the world for each location’s public story, or search any hashtag for that hashtag’s public story. It is perfect for brands if they utilise it right! Behind the scenes and fly on the wall content is great for brands right now – So using these tools just helps the case.

  • ✨ “Consider the possibilities” This is my upbeat attitude for the week. ✨BUT I am so blissfully happy Monday is over. 👌🏼Although I’ve had a good day at work, smashed through lots. 🤜🏻 I can definitely feel a cold 🥶 coming on. So I’m very happy to be snuggled on the sofa, 💑 watching a movie. Which makes me wonder... what’s your go to movie 🎬 to watch when you’re feeling a little poorly?! 🤔
  • ✨ A slow Sunday has been just what’s needed after yesterday. The most mammoth of all migraines🤮 took over and I only really feel as though I’ve just come out the other side! 🌷However, to cheer myself up and pull myself together I’ve spent the day cleaning the house, 🧽 making little corners all pretty 💖and homey. 🏡 Just makes me feel a little better! Was also slightly gutted I couldn’t pop into town to grab some of the lush Halloween 🎃 collection! I was lucky enough to be intuited the the #prevent on Thursday, to have a little look at the goodies & even makes my own bath bomb! 🎉Did you manage to grab Halloween goodies? 👻
  • ✨“Flowers can’t solve all problems, but they’re a great start”. 🌺 I have been looking for something to brighten up the front of our house 🏡(as currently our row of houses look very uniform) & this little plant tower from @flowerbarltd has given me a few ideas.. literally haven’t stopped thinking about how I could recreate this - I’m thinking about getting a little step ladder of plants?! 🌺🌷🎉
  • ✨ Tuesday can be such ‘meh’ days, right? 😩Although I feel like I really smashed 🤜🏻through my Monday - Tuesday has made feel a little snowed under. A slightly stressful feeling! 🙄However, I’ve managed to crawl home, receive enormous amounts of Kitty love 😻 off of my fur baby - which has taken that ‘overwhelmed’ feeling away. Now, I’ve taken myself for a piping hot bath 🛀& shoved a facemask 🧖🏼‍♀️on - just so I can be all ready, cosy on the sofa 🛋(like a warm toasty cinnamon 🤤bun) just in time for bake off. Bring on bread week! 🍞🥖🎉 🤫➡️ P.s it’s actually the first year I’m watching bake off - can you believe it’s taken me 10 years? 😱✨
  • 🌧 Drizzle, drizzle ☔️ While it might not have been the best day, weather wise. I can’t help but feel I’ve had a pretty good start to the week.⭐️ Managed to be the first one in the office,👌🏼 which meant I got to blitz through a few emails 📩 before the day really kicked off! Then somehow managed to bag myself a free lunch 🍲which was divineee.😋 Back home to see that my roses 💐 are looking pretty for week. Now, it’s time for a little 🥘dinner to warm up, a snuggle 💑 on the sofa & a feel good 🎬 movie. What are your Monday evening plans? ✨
  • ✨ September has always felt like the perfect month for changes and fresh starts. Why? 🤔Well this week I started my digital marketing degree 📒which I’m super excited to do! What’s even better, is my work is supporting me through my learning period while I add a little more to my plate to juggle. It’s been really exciting & I’ve been buying all the stationery to colour code my revision notes. 😂 So I’m sure you’ll see me going crazy 🤪 on stories when I’m making notes (feel free to send me a response telling me to get back to studying! 😂). Like today I had to drag myself away from my Sunday lie in 💤to stay on track with my first module. 🤭 But on the whole I’m really excited! ➡️Side note: I know some of you who follow will know I already work in digital marketing - mainly social media, 👩🏼‍💻so why bother right?? Well over the last few months in my job I became really conscious of some gaps in my knowledge & While I really want to advance in my job, I know I need to spend some time learning. 👩🏼‍🏫It’s going to tough sometimes to balance work & study but it’s something I’m doing for me & that just makes me determined. 👌🏼💪🏼 ➡️ BUT that’s enough studying for today, so I’m off for a community BBQ 🌭in my new neighbourhood! Have a beautiful rest of Sunday! 🎉
