In 2022, social media is coming to the fore in marketing and e-commerce, so more businesses are looking to make their pages stand out from the crowd and attract more buyers. Old methods of promotion no longer work, so marketers are constantly looking for new ways and tools. In this search for new methods, Instagram become a very popular tool among marketers.
Today we will talk about some technical aspects that will help you reduce the time to maintain the page and simplify many processes.
It turns out that Instagram content can and should be reused. This is especially true for small businesses that do not have enough resources to produce new content. Of course, filming a video and a professional photo session costs a lot of time and money. Therefore, some even big brands do not hesitate to reuse old content, and not always their own. Read on to learn how to save Instagram photos, redesign them, and re-post again.
To get started, you need to download the photos, it is very easy to do using the free service from Inflact. The company has developed a convenient resource that works in a browser and allows you to download photos from Instagram for free and without registration. To save the publication you want, just copy the link to this post in the address bar, go to the Inflact Instagram photo downloader site, and paste the link into the search bar on the site. In just 30 seconds, the photos will already be on your electronic device. By the way, this method works not only for photos but also for videos.
Now that you have the desired photo saved, and you can do whatever you want with it, it’s time to give it a second life. I like to use a service called Canva. It is good because it is available in the browser and mobile application, and even in the free version it has many features.
Here are a few options on how you can update your photo:
- Apply trendy filter
- Blur background
- Crop excess from photo
- Use a creative template
- Add text to picture
- Remove background
- Make GIF or animation
You might think that only professional designers can do this, but I assure you it’s easier than it seems. Just try this service for free and let your imagination run wild. It was specifically designed to allow ordinary users without design education to create simple layouts using the available templates. All you need to do is just upload your photo and choose the template you like.
After you have processed the photo, it’s time to publish it. You can post it directly from your Instagram app on your mobile phone, or you can post it from your computer with a delayed posting time. If you use Instagram for business, link it to your Facebook business page and go to Facebook Business. Select the Publications section from the menu and click the Create Publication button. After that, you can upload a photo, caption the text, choose hashtags and schedule a publication time. The beauty is that you can schedule a publication both for the same day with a delay of several hours and for a week and a month in advance. With proper planning, you can set aside one day to implement your content plan for the long haul.
One more Instagram trick
If you do not have enough of your own content, you can use someone else’s content while absolutely legal. You can also download other people’s posts and fill your page with content curation. It is not at all necessary to rewrite the text or edit other people’s photos beyond recognition. If you liked the post, you can publish it on your page but be sure to include a link to the source.
As you can see, there are many ways to fill your page without creating anything new. You can reuse your own content by slightly updating it or downloading photos posted by other users by linking the author. By setting aside a little time of 1 or 2 days, you can schedule publications months in advance. The program itself will publish posts at the right time and your users will not even guess that you are resting at this time.
