If you are wondering if Instagram is better for business, it may be because the users are primarily teenagers and young adults. The content on Instagram is mostly related to the younger generation who prefer visuals over long text. This is in contrast to Facebook where the age groups are similar but largely comprised of older people. Here are a few tips that you can use to make your Instagram content more interesting for the younger generation. Moreover, you can request to join a Live Stream to connect with a wide audience.
Reels are a popular feature on Instagram
Reels are short videos on Instagram that can be up to 60 seconds long. Instagram users can edit their reels to add additional content. Before you start shooting your video, you’ll want to select a song to play. Tap the music icon on the left of the screen to browse and search for a song. After you select the song, you can play it or record part of it. The original audio will be saved as “Original Audio” and will be available for future Reels. Lastly, you can choose to use camera audio or voice over to enhance the audio in your video.
You can request to join a Live Stream
If you’ve been on Instagram for any length of time, you’ve probably noticed the new “Request to Join a Live Stream” option. This feature lets viewers request to join a live video from the host. Previously, this feature was up to the broadcaster’s discretion, but now anyone can request to join. Guests are selected based on the comments posted during the live stream.
You can post up to 10 photos or videos at once
You can now upload up to 10 photos or videos at once using the new update for Instagram. The new feature, dubbed “Carousel,” lets you post multiple images in one post. These posts will appear as a single post in your Instagram feed, with the photos appearing as slideshows that your followers can swipe through. If you post 10 photos at once, you can edit each photo separately or make an entire slideshow with them.
You can add a caption to your posts
A good caption for your posts on Instagram will encourage more engagement. The character limit for a caption on Instagram is 2,200 characters, or 330 words. If you want your post to have a high level of engagement, use words that will attract potential customers. Then, you can improve your caption going forward. Remember, that more engagement means more customers.
Make sure that your caption fits with your business goals and aims.
You can send DMs on Instagram
DMs on Instagram are private messages you can send to another Instagram user. It is the primary way for Instagram users to communicate with their communities and are not visible on the brand’s profile or feed. If you don’t follow someone, you won’t be able to send them a DM only the user who has accepted it can see it. Nevertheless, you can send a DM to anyone if they follow you.
You can download your data from instagram
If you’d like to download your data from Instagram, you can do so by signing into your account and going to “Get a copy of your information”. You will be taken to a page with a link to download your data. On this page, enter your email address and password and click “Download Data.” Once the data has been downloaded, you can open it in Excel. If you don’t have Excel, you can also download the data in JSON format.
