In February 2017, Instagram updated with a multi-feature for their photos and videos.
With the new Instagram update, you can now upload multiple photos and videos at once; up to 10 to be exact.
That’s not only cool because as a mom, you can now share 10 photos of your new baby at one time, and you no longer have to choose just one; but as an entrepreneur, small business owner, or blogger, you can really increase engagement.
Do you do reviews or sponsored posts? Well now you can share multiple photos of that sponsored product, and maybe even charge a little more *wink wink*.
If you are a product-based business, you can share multiple ways of using your product all in one go. No need to clutter up your feed with multiple photos or videos across your profile. Compiling them all into one makes seeing your products fun and creative.
You can now easily do a step-by-step tutorial which is perfect for those who do recipes or makeup tutorials and that one minute video just isn’t enough time. You may have even been using Instagram stories to do this. Now you can put these types of tutorials directly on your Instagram feed.
Are you having a giveaway with more than one goodie included? You can give each item its own spotlight!
Are you hosting an event with multiple speakers or sponsors? Compile each person or company into one post!
So how does it work?
Go to your profile.
Tap the plus sign to add a photo.
Under gallery, you’ll now see “Select Multiple”.
You’ll see circles on each photo in your gallery available to select for upload.
Go through each photo or video to edit as necessary. Tap “Next”.
You now have a creative carousel of photos or videos for your audience to view. You’ll see icons below your photos to show that there are multiples there to view.
Now with so many great ways to share what’s going on with you, your brand, your business or blog, you are surely able to attract your tribe and build an amazing community of people.
Be sure that you are promoting the value and not just products or services.
