Last June, Instagram just launched its new addition to their long list of features – the IGTV.
 
IGTV is Instagram’s long-video format platform that allows creators to upload up to one hour of video on their “channel” (as they call it). Currently, this is only available to select creators – those who have IG accounts with a huge following (Selena Gomez, Kim K, Kevin Hart, and Lele Pons to name a few).
 
Both creators and audience can access IGTV by tapping on the orange TV button in the app, or download a stand-alone IGTV app.
 
Once you click the button, it will instantly play content from people you follow or what the algorithm thinks that you would like based on the accounts you follow and your view behavior.
 
Anything is now possible with Instagram with this TV feature. And while it is still a young one, it would be best to prepare to dive into the bigger picture and plan out on how you can maximize IGTV for your brand.

Getting an influencer to represent your brand has been an important thing for most brands lately. This is called Influencer Marketing.

get more instagram followers

Optimizing the use of social media and their plethora of features is important for any business. Online marketers should know the trend of all of the available social platforms and must know how to navigate their way to success using these tools.
 
Instagram, for example, has many features that businesses could explore. Posting a photo alone is already an excellent way to expose your brand. How much more if you can add more photos?
 
But IG Story is different. Instead of multiple photos which your user can simply swipe left, a story is timed and viewable for only a few seconds.
 
This actually can entice more Instagram users to follow your brand’s account, but only when it’s done right.
 
Here are a few tips you can use for to help boost your business using Instagram Stories.

Since Snapchat introduced stories, other social networking apps have followed suit. You can see story features in Instagram and, now, on Facebook. But for the sake of this blog, let’s focus on Instagram.
 
When Instagram started, grabbing other people’s photos and videos was a big puzzle to most users. It should be because grabbing somebody else’s posts just poses a significant security issue. However, this has already been addressed through apps and online services.
 
Now, there’s IG Story.
 
This innovation goes back to the same dilemma. This one’s harder to do since IG stories only last for 24 hours.
 
Here’s where the beauty of technology comes in; thanks to diligent and dedicated programmers. There are now multiple apps – both for Android and iOS – that will enable you to save IG stories on your phone.
