3 Creative Ways to Use Instagram Slideshow for Business
Last week, Instagram rolled out a new feature (yet again!) that we are loving: the Slideshow. This new tool allows users to add up to 10 photos/ videos into a single post, so you never have to choose between which photo to post ever again. One of the best features of the Slideshow is that it allows users to get more creative with their posts, and to story tell like never before. We want you to get the most out of the Instagram Slideshow for your business, so we have come up with our top 3 tips on how to get the most out of it. Happy posting!
- Showcase a Before-and-After
The beauty of the Slideshow is that it gives your followers an opportunity to see multiple photos at once, instantly. This provides a perfect outlet to showcase before and after photos in one post. In the past, users have had to resort to creating a collage with multiple photos which is time consuming, and greatly reduces the size of the photos, therefore making the images less effective. Posting several photos in a progressive order is ideal for people in the industries of home renovations, interior design, esthetics, and fitness & health.
- Host a Workshop or Tutorial
Another creative way to use the Slideshow is to walk your users through a tutorial. Whether it’s how to create a floral arrangement, or install a lighting fixture, you can walk your followers through a step-by-step visual guide in 10 easy steps. This is a great way to increase engagement with your community, and to encourage questions/feedback with your audience.
- Capture Your Events for an Insider’s Perspective
One of the best outcomes of the Slideshow is that it reduces spam in the Insta-world. Instead of a user posting 10 photos in a row, and therefore losing the attention of their audience, we can now post all photos at once using just one caption. If you host/attend an event, and want to share your 10 greatest photos with your audience, you no longer have to worry about spamming, or picking and choosing. Show the event in chronological order to make your followers feel like they were actually there!
