You don't need to be a key to understand. wordpress settled back. And listen as we show you how. Now here's your host Scott Widen Kipah wits. Welcome to episode ninety five. This is Scott. When give wit's end today we're going to continue with the topic on Instagram. And I have one goal with this with this episode of the podcast and it is to show you that if your photographer with under ten thousand followers on instagram you. You can actually do a swipe up feature in your instagram stories. You have to do is sort of a hack work around in order to make it happen. Yeah you can't just do it like somebody who actually has ten thousand followers can do it where it's built in you have to do do a workaround so I'm gonNA show you using facebook's crater studio if you are not using crater studio. I recommend it especially to upload your instagram Graham Stories. Anything you make on your computer that you want to upload to your instagram you can actually post to your feet and to your TV. Which which? You're GONNA need as well by connecting your Creator Studio on Facebook to your instagram account. Now all this does if you go to business dot facebook dot com mm slash creator studio and Create Studio being one word in that. You are L.. Then you can then connect your instagram account. You Graham Account and your facebook page and you then have access to edit modify and also post to your instagram feed your instagram stories and your ide- TV so what you would do once. You're all set up with that. Is You. Make sure you're in the INSTAGRAM TAB. Go to create post choose. I G. T. V. Instagram TV. And you'RE GONNA go ahead and you're going to create a new post to your instagram accounts. And yes as you just saw. If you're watching this episode then you probably saw that you can actually connect multiple pages and multiple interim accounts to the Creator Studio that Israeli Nice. Then you will go hand you upload the file you can import it from your facebook page age. If you have stories that create our facebook page and you want to utilize or you can actually go to file. So I create all my stories inside of final Caprio and So I do it. Just upload that file that created there you can also upload a custom image if you want and of course has to be a vertical image but you can upload a custom image you then they're gonNa to create your title so this is my amazing title. That is the title. I'm going to use the sample title and then I have these emojis that I use that that I include include I haven't many APP note and just copy and paste them here and you can see that there's too if you're again watching this episode. I have a down Arrow and a mouse click. There is no touch Like tap phone emoji. I wish there was but I can't find that really works. Well so basically is saying you. You can Tap to look down and then the description. Here's where the fun hack comes into play in the description of I g ATV you can put a euro and that you are. Ill is click -able on the phone right whereas if you were using an instagram degrom post normal in your feed and you put a url is taxed. They don't make it tap applicable on the phone. Which means that. If you're sharing a blog post host in you WANNA say go to this blog post and you type it in and you have to say or visit my Lincoln Bio in click the link in the bio and that's annoying so the work around is saying saying okay. Here's the link to the blog posts. Right you put in your your L. to the blog post and any description. This is my amazing description. And you put that in for the. Id TV episode the TV. I G TV episode. You're making and then you hit publish or you can actually schedule schedule. It you can schedule your TV and also your feed all INCR- studio. It's really nice to do on the desktop. Now I mean I use buffer as you saw in the last episode I actually buffer for episodes ago. I use a buffer to schedule my instagram posts but for stories and ID TV. I'd do it all in Creator. Studio could just so much easier Whenever I have one that I've created on the computer not on my phone. I I mean okay so you po you publish that right you have all done next thing to do is actually go and create an instagram story. So we're going to go ahead and create a story story. I'm GonNa say this is my story and say swipe up now of course you. Can you could add in Buchanan sticker song to add a swipe up sticker and obviously the colors ingrates. I'M GONNA change the color ever go. This is my story. Swipe up and now what you're GONNA do. And there's a link icon. You're going to click that link icon and choose the I G ATV video that you just created Nigga hit done. And now what's going to happen. Is that in your in your story. There's going to be for people. Watching coaching is going to be that. Swipe up a feature and when they swipe up it's actually going to take them to the story so when they swipe up they're gonNA see this. They're gonNA see the Youtube TV episode. You created you can see the title will have the Emoji which is more visible and when they go to click it. It's going to bring down the description without link and then they can click the link and they can get to the page you want them to get to it. Is that simple. But it's still a hack that you have to do unfortunately only if you don't have the right amount of of of subscribers if you don't have ten thousand which is not your fault. I mean it it it. It happened and not everybody has a goal of getting to ten thousand followers. Not Everybody needs to get to ten thousand followers for their photography business. If you're not there you have a way to do a swipe up with a little bit of extra work rather than swiping up and going right to the oral that you're saying there swiping up and they're going to you wouldn't do TV which then will then send them to the link. You want them to go to so there you go. That is episode ninety five. I can't believe leave worry episode ninety five. I hope you're enjoying this sort of multi part series on instagram. What would be really cool if I can get to episode ninety nine all on Instagram. That is my goal and that way episode. One hundred will be something super special.
