Optimize Instagram for You AND Your Followers (Hidden Features and Stories Hacks)

With Instagram, I love that there are so many different forms of content delivery on ONE platform (posts, stories, live, video – you name it!).

I use a bunch of features in the app and in creating my content that makes the experience really fun for me, and for my followers to get to know me better.

But when I talk to friends, clients, or you guys, it turns out that these features aren’t so common after all.

So many people aren’t doing everything they can to make the most of what Instagram offers.

As a result, they’re wasting resources that can build their followers, engagement, and online brand reputation.

And these are things you can try out RIGHT NOW no matter what your follower-count is.

When I build my tribe on Instagram, I want to make the MOST of it.

From the back end, there are a bunch of ways to gain the data and KNOWLEDGE of how your posts are performing to improve yourself.

Resource #1: Hidden Instagram Features to LEVEL UP your Instagram Experience

We all spend our fair share of time on Instagram whether it’s to build our personal brand, to grow our business, or for good ol’ plain fun.

But ask yourself: Are there EVEN MORE feature that exist for you to leverage?

Short answer: Yes.

Long answer: Watch this video.

Resource #2: Instagram Stories Hack to BOOST Engagement

Once you learn all about the unknown features within Instagram… the fun does NOT STOP!

Because surprise: there are now even MORE hidden features within Instagram Story.

Check out these hacks that can take your Stories to the NEXT LEVEL and really show your audience the content you’re dedicated to putting out.

After I posted this video, Instagram launched ANOTHER feature for Stories!

I’ll be playing around with the Instagram Quiz Function and updating this to share my thoughts.

Would you be down to see a follow up video of more secret Instagram features or updated Stories hacks? There are so many that  I would love to share!
