Instagram is one of the best marketing tools available today. At least, according to me. Haha. I love it and I think it works for me because I have defined my audience and I only use it to promote my abstract paintings. It takes discipline but it has paid off!
I found some pretty cool instagram tips that I would like to share with you.
1. UPLOAD MORE THAN JUST SQUARE PICSOnce known for smartphone friendly square pics, Instagram now allows more dimensions. You can upload photos and videos in portrait or landscape. Just tap the little arrows in the lower left hand corner to switch to the full image.
2. BOOMERANG IT!
If you want Instagram’s latest fun effect, you won’t find it inside the app. You’ll have to download their new app called Boomerang. It only has one button - press it and Boomerang takes a one second burst of pics, then stitches them together like a Flipbook, playing them back and forth in one endless loop. It’s a ton of fun… and you can share to Instagram in one click.
3. GET CREATIVE WITH VIDEO
When you're taking video on Instagram, you're not limited to just one clip. Press and hold to record, then press and hold to record again. Instagram will stitch your clips together so you can get super creative.
Need a do-over? Hit delete twice to get rid of your last clip.
4. GET NOTIFIED WHEN A SPECIFIC FRIEND POSTS INSTANTLY
This is my favorite Instagram secret, and lets me know when specific friends post instantly. Just go to a friend's (or potential customer's!!) profile page and look for the menu button in the upper right hand corner. Tap it and select “turn on post notifications." Now you will get a notification as soon as they hit post. Just be sure to comment… "first!"
