Instagram is continuously expanding its options for brands to advertise on the platform, both Organically as well as Paid. Most recently, Instagram announced that it is exploring options to further utilize the relationships that brands have developed with relevant influencers in their industries in order to create branded content ads.
This past June, Instagram began testing shopping tags within stories. This feature allows brands and advertisers to place a shopping bag icon on products within an image in their story, which upon clicking, provides product information, and links to the brand’s website for purchase.
Instagram has finally released an update that they have been teasing users with for quite some time – the ability to upload multiple photos or videos at once. The social platform now has an option where users can upload as many as 10 videos or photos into one post. The followers of those users can then scroll through and see the various images or videos without looking through multiple uploads.
