IMS NYC 2022: Why Future-Forward Campaigns Need a 360 Degree Process
Check out our speaker session from the first ever Influencer Marketing Show in New York City.
Over the past few years, Instagram has evolved and added new features to the app regularly. Are you on top of these tools and features? You should be!
That’s why we’ve rounded up some cool Instagram hacks you may not know about (or have forgotten) that you can experiment with and ensure you are utilising all the cool features this platform has to offer…
While allowing followers to comment on your Instagram posts can be a positive experience, there may be occasions in which you want to share something but don’t want feedback or you wish to block out any offensive words which you can set up automatically in the settings tab. You can disable comments on Instagram posts either before you post or after a photo or video has gone live on your feed.
Your Instagram bio is extremely important, especially if you have more than one account that you would like to direct users to. Fortunately, you have the option to include another Instagram account in your Instagram bio. To do so, simply type the “@” sign into your Bio, and then select the account you’d like to tag. Then, click “Done”.
Instagram’s a great app for editing and sharing images. With 1000’s of filters to choose from, you have a lot of options. The problem is, that is can also be annoying to wade through when searching for your favourite filter.
Luckily, Instagram lets you rearrange your filters so the ones you use most are always close at hand. You can even hide any filters you don’t ever want to use. To reorder filters, add a new post and begin editing it. When you get to the filters page, hold down on a filter you’d like to move, and then drag it to your preferred location.
Are you using Instagram Direct Messages to communicate with your audience? Looking for an easy way to provide quick replies to common questions via Direct Messages?
Using Quick Replies not only saves you time but allows you to be consistent when responding to users.
Here’s how to set it up:
Interested to see how much time you’ve spent on Instagram, we are all guilty of scrolling, scrolling, scrolling, but you may want to limit how much time you spend on the app if you’re trying to focus on work or manage your digital wellbeing. Here’s how to track and manage your Instagram usage:
You can hide old posts out of sight with the “Archive” function:
How to do it:
Instagram has quietly added a new button to its website. And that new button makes all the difference for what we want to do here: post on Instagram from a desktop or laptop computer rather than a mobile app.
After you log into your account through a web browser, you should see a new + button in the toolbar. (And to be clear, this is just the standard web browser window without resorting to spoofing a mobile user-agent.)
