How To Get The Most Out Of Instagram Videos post image

Everybody knows that Instagram added the option to record videos through the app since ages ago, because of this I want to share some tips for brands. A few months ago, we spoke on this blog about what VINE was and how brands took advantage of it in the past.

Advantages of Instagram vs. Vine

I was a fan of VINE, but we have to admit that Instagram had more features and advantages than VINE, then I’ll share them with you:

  • Videos of 15 seconds instead of 6 seconds
  • Includes filters (13)
  • It allows you to share your content on Tumblr, Flickr, and Foursquare in addition to Facebook and Twitter as it has VINE
  • You can choose a cover for your video
  • You can delete the last fragment of your video

It also has things that worry me:

  • When I’m using 4G, even if I’m just shortly viewing videos, how long will my 4G last? My recommendation is that you go to settings -> preferences -> and choose what kind of videos to play automatically 
  • You can’t import videos. I always import images with them because I have previously done some editing (add special filters, texts, etc …)

Ideas To Take Advantage Of Videos

You need to have that engaging and organic audience to make sure that your videos reach high visibility! With apps such as SimplyGram, the best Instagram growth service in 2019, you can definitely establish your Instagram fame presence.
