Instagram is a fun promotional tool that allows your bands to post pictures and hashtag them to gain a new audience. It has over 200 million users that you can potentially tap into. There are actually a few programs that you can use with Instagram that will maximize your reach to a new fan base. We will go over them with you.
Camera+ not only allows you to take pictures, but instantly touch them up for a more professional look. You can crop what you want and add your own filter or frame before even posting it through Instagram.
Word Swag is a cool app that allows you to add text to your photos before you upload them on to social media. It will give your photos an extra visual punch. It’s great for adding a song lyric to a band photo.
BeFunky is an application that easily allows you to do many of the things that Photoshop can do for your photos. The bonus, it is free! You’ll be surprised what a little touching up can do for a photo.
Diptic is the app of all apps for photo collages. They are becoming very popular in social media. This app allows you to make a great collage quickly and ready to most within minutes.
Canva is a free online tool that allows you to resize your images to fit anything that you need on social media. You can create covers, headers, business cards and much more using this tool.
Bit.ly is good to know about. You know when you have a super long hyper link that won’t fit in your Twitter announcements? This will allow you to cut down your hyper link to maybe 10 characters. You even have the ability to customize your link.
I bet you didn’t think that Instagram could be so involved. The more you know, the better you can promote your band. That is why we are here.
