We have all been patiently waiting for Instagram to change the Insta story feature and allow us to TBT from our camera roll. That day has finally come.
Three reasons why this new feature is better for your business
Users can now upload any photo from their phone to their story. No more 24 hour rule, you can dig deep for that perfect photo to post on your story.
The photo is now the perfect size and is not distorted from its original size.
This will save you time, time, and more time.
How does the new Insta feature work
It is pretty simple, just like before you will click the logo icon in the top left hand corner. Swipe up and you will see photos from the last 24 hours. Keep scrolling through and your photos from your camera roll will appear. Click on a photo and voila! Your story is now posted.
Insta story will benefit your business, we promise
It’s the little things in life that matter the most, and this update is one of them. If you aren’t using stories or even Instagram for you business, then we should talk. Utilizing the Instagram story feature will help improve engagement, content, and visibility to your business. Add to your business profile by marketing to your audience in real-time, diversify your brand with unique imagery, save and re-post, and most of all, have fun with it.
Plan ahead with the new Insta feature
As we said before, the new Instagram feature will save you a lot of time. When you want to post an Instagram story of multiple photos, you don't have to go back and screen grab and re-save old images. Plan ahead and create content beforehand, this way when you are ready to post, you will have all the images you need.
Incase you forgot…
