How to Post on Instagram: a Step-by-Step Guide

Oct 29, 2019 | Commentary

Instagram has over 800 million users worldwide, and if you're not using it for your business, you're missing out. Posting on Instagram isn't hard. Begin by tapping the plus sign icon at the bottom of the screen. Choose a photo or video from your library, or shoot one in the app. You can crop and filter the image as needed. Type in a caption (get creative!), then add relevant hashtags that people can search for. You can also tag other users and add your location. If you want to add emojis, don't go overboard. Instagram even makes it easy to share the same content on Facebook and Twitter.

Key Takeaways:

  • Instagram has more than 800 million active users and is one of the widest reaching social media platforms.
  • Instagram allows you to use either vertical or horizontal images, but they have to be sized to fit properly.
  • If you want to use multiple images, you can do this with Instagram's carousel feature.
