Instagram is a hub of activities. With over 1 billion monthly users, the platform is a goldmine for small businesses. Tools and features relevant to content creators and businesses abound. One such feature lets you repost or reshare posts (Regram) on Instagram.
Reposting on Instagram
Reposting allows you to reshare your post or someone else’s post on Instagram.
It’s difficult enough to create high-quality content on Instagram, let alone post them consistently to keep your audience.
Strategically reposting content from others is a great way to add quality content to your page consistently.
Here’s the right way to repost for various Instagram post types:
1. Instagram Feed Posts
While Instagram doesn’t allow you to share posts directly on your feed, you can do so by downloading a third-party app like Repost for Instagram.
Once you’ve downloaded a reposting app, copy the post’s share URL to your clipboard.
Open the third-party app, edit the caption, and share the post.
Whatever you do, don’t forget to get appropriate permission and also give credit to the original poster in your post.
You can share Instagram posts to your Story without leaving the Instagram app. To share feed posts to your Story, all you have to do is tap on the paper airplane icon on that post. Then, click on “Add post to your story” from the pop-up menu and follow any subsequent instructions.
Reposting Instagram posts to your stories can help your business in several ways.
It can drive traffic to your page and increase your followers. It’s also a great way to collaborate with other businesses, especially when the post is relevant to your business.
2. Instagram Stories
To repost someone else’s Story on Instagram, you would have to be tagged by them. This “tag” is your ticket to getting options that enable you to share the Story.
Add to your Instagram story and customize it with stickers and such.
Previously, you could only add a link to the IGTV you intended to share. Now, you can repost it directly on your Story by tapping the paper airplane icon on the video.
This prompts you to “Add video to your story.”
You can also add a 15-second preview for your followers to watch before the full video.
4. IG Reels
Despite being one of the newest Instagram features, Reels seems to help people get higher engagement than any other Instagram tool.
Reposting here is pretty simple. All you have to do is open the full-view Reel and tap on the paper airplane icon. Then, proceed to share the Reel on your Story.
Ultimately, Instagram is great for small businesses. Take advantage of the features offered by this platform to promote your content effectively.
