Instagram is the gift that keeps on giving, they recently introduced their new carousel feature allowing you to share your brand’s story through multiple images in one post. We share 4 ways you can get creative with your posts.

 

  • Before & After
    Instagram allows you to add up to 10 images in one post so why not use this to create a before and after sequence – ideal if you’re a beauty or fitness business, you can’t go wrong with a #TransformationTuesday post. If you’re looking to boost engagement, why not ask your followers to spot the difference between your photos

 

 

  • Tell A Story
    Had a great time at that networking event last night? Want to share your business story? Retell the story by sharing the highlights and milestones in one post. You can use a mix of photos and videos to create your own narrative from start to finish. Remember this is the perfect time to bring your following with you!

 

 

  • Suprise!
    Got something exciting to share? Why not reveal it in an engaging carousel. Tease your audience with a sneak peek of what’s to come. Of course you’ve got to leave your final post as a cliffhanger so that your audience will come back to see the big reveal 😉 Remember not only will this build up your engagement, but also create a buzz around your campaign

  • Demos
    Walk your followers through the process! The new slideshow feature is perfect for you to demonstrate how you use or do something, for example if you’re a food blogger you can share your recipe, beauty business? Share your swatches. Turning your post into a tutorial is a great way to encourage your audience to keep on swiping
