Imagine if you could provide 10 times the information in one post instead of clogging up peoples feeds with back to back posts about the same topic. Well, Instagram just launched its new feature called galleries which lets you do this. It's a great way to post up to multiple pictures in a single post. At first I wasn't very excited about it but after seeing the Instagram community get creative with it I've changed my mind. It's a really cool feature and I'm going list out a few ways for you to make use of it below.
Galleries is a great to show off the ingredients and the step-by-step process of how to make a dish. You can even make a simple recipe and show off your final dish in more than one picture.
2. Product Catalog
You can now easily showcase a collection of items. For example, a new spring collection for clothes, shoes, and accessories. This is a great way to keep an audience informed and engaged.
3. Panoramic Views
With the help of galleries you can show off your panoramic pictures in much more detail by splitting them up to 10 image. This will allow your audience a better perspective of your work and increase engagement.
4. Comparing products
Can't decide what to wear? Well Instagram just gave you a new tool to help you decide. Now, if you're stuck between a few choices, you can make a single post asking followers to pick the best one.
You can help share your DIY's on Instagram more easily with one post. Help your followers with a step-by-step guide using multiple pictures.
6. Contests and Giveaways
People have been doing contests and giveaways on Instagram forever. Now you can do them better thanks to galleries. You can announce 10 winners in one go instead of bombarding newsfeeds with multiple posts.
