6 Cool Instagram Tricks to Take Your Account to The NEXT Level

1. Brand your Website / Blog

Ever wonder how people post their website below their Instagram username?

It's easy! The first step is to go to your Facebook mobile app. 

Next click 'CHECK IN'

Once you're there, create a new location to check in. Type of your domain name as at the location. eg: PostPlanner.com (you can't use http://)

Once you've done that. Simply upload a photo, then click on 'add location.' 

There simply type your website and voila! Here's what ours looks like on Instagram:

2. Link to Your Content

Let's say you just wrote a superb Instagram post, and you want to link from Instagram to an article on your blog.

What do you do?

Here's a handy solution!

Replace the website URL in your bio with the link you want readers to visit... then politely ask your audience to CLICK the new link!

Here's a good example of what I mean:

6. Use Instagram for Editing

Love instagram filters? Want to edit your photo but don't want to publish it first?

It's simple, all you have to do is switch your phone to 'airplane mode.' 

Once you've done that, you can edit your photos then click 'share.'

Since your phone is on airplane mode, your image will fail to publish -- but the edited image will be saved on your phone.

It's that simple! #winning.
