Tips, Ideas, and Facts About Instagram’s New Carousel Feature – Friendors Consultancy

Hey there, Friendors!

We’re sure you’ve seen the new Instagram update, where you can now upload more than one image and your viewers can swipe to see more. It’s officially called carousel posts but we’re calling the feature SWIPE. It was originally only available to advertisers but Instagram just rolled the feature out to all users.

We are in loooove with it and wanted to share some tips and advice for when to use it and some links to help get your groove goin’. Let’s get started!

FACTS:

  • You are now allowed 10 images in one post. That’s soooo many!
  • You can post photos and videos together.
  • All likes and comments apply to one post

WHEN TO USE SWIPE:

  • Listacles: Swipe is perfect for listacles. Here are a few examples to get your brain rolling with more ideas: 10 Bridal Hairstyles We Love, 5 Flowers In Season For Fall Events, 7 Times The Flower Girl Stole The Show, etc.
  • To Prevent Spamming: You know when you get in that mood and you want to share like a billion photos in one day? Or when your company is at more than one event a day and you want to show everyone? It’s kind of annoying to spam with a photo from each of your events in one day. Now, you can put them together and say something along the lines of “We’re out working at 7 events today – swipe to see a peek into each one!”
  • BTS: Behind the scenes photos are fun and everyone wants to see them, but they should not be the main attraction of your instagram Share BTS images once or twice a week in Swipe format so your feed is full of finished product posts and just a few sprinkles of BTS. You could even post the final product as the first image in your carousel and then say “swipe left for bts to see how we got this photo!” or “swipe to see our team dancing in the kitchen while making this delicious pie for today’s event” or something.
  • How To’s: Everyone loves a little how to, especially when it’s helpful to them. Here are a few ideas: How To Hold Your Bouquet For Photos, How To Tie Your Bow Tie, etc.
  • To Tell A Story That’s Too Important For Stories: Stories are popular right now but what if you want to tell a story that’s too important to disappear in 24 hours? Instagram’s got ya now.

TIPS:

  • This new feature automatically crops each image square. Make sure you are choosing images that are good compositions for squares and that you’re not cropping your or photographer’s images poorly.
  • Don’t forget to tag each photo individually! Even though likes and comments apply to one post only, you can and should tag each image individually.
  • Post photos and videos together in one swipe post!

A Really Cool Instagram Planner – Friendors Consultancy

You may remember when we shared a few Social Media Planning Tools with you all, like Hootsuite and Later, and when we elaborated on How We Make Our Instagram Cohesive, but we’re here with a new app we’ve discovered that we really think tops the cake. (is that a saying?)

If you haven’t heard of this app, you’ll be thanking us from the bottom pits of your heart for forever after you try it out.

It tells you the best hashtags, the best times, allows you to schedule posts, and to even drag and drop your images in a predicted grid view on your phone so you can match them up cohesively before posting. The other apps we’ve blogged about in the past have some of these functionalities as well but this one’s user friendliness and variety won us over.

It’s free up until you meet the number of free grids and free uploads you’re allowed in the free plan. For just 2.99 –  4.99 a month you could be rolling in all of the features. (we are!)

You ready for us to finally tell you the name of it?

It’s called Unum.

Social Media Content Ideas – Friendors Consultancy

Struggling with what to share on your social accounts besides photos from events you’ve done?

There’s a “holiday” – official, national, or just plain wacky – every day of the year! Why not have some fun and take advantage?

For example, caterers, did you know that January 2 is National Buffet Day? Yup! Or that January 6th is National Bean Day and National Shortbread Day? Why not have a little fun in the kitchen and share a recipe with your followers for these things?

June 1st is National Say Something Nice Day. Why not share photos of your favorite local professionals on your social account and say something nice about them? Or do a video round up of each person on your team saying something nice about someone else on the team? Or a post of all of your most recent 5 star reviews where people went on and on with nice things about you? Just ideas.

How do we know these random dates? How can you come up with content for your brand every day of the week?

There’s this dope website we browse sometimes, National Day Calendar.

We think it’ll inspire ya. 😉
