Professional Community for Car Dealers, Marketing, Advertising and Sales Leaders
You might not use Instagram, but you’ve probably come across photos that 50 million users of Instagram have taken and put on the web. Also, more than likely you’ve heard the news that Facebook acquired Instagram in April for $1 billion.
What’s so special about Instagram? Its calling card is the photo filter, a digital layer that, when added to a standard photo, gives it the appearance of professional editing. So how can you jump on this photo filter craze? ActivEngage is here to share the Instagram basics, whether you’re new to the network or need some additional tips as well as how to use this app for your dealership.
First off, let’s register:
Connecting to your Social Media sites:
It’s important to connect social accounts to get the most out of the experience. You may choose to link Instagram to your Twitter, Facebook, Foursquare, Tumblr, and Flickr.
To connect social accounts, head to the Profile Tab > Edit Sharing Settings, then choose the network you wish to connect.
Each time you upload a photo to Instagram, you’ll have the option to share to each of the social networks you’ve enabled, or to none. If you choose to share to no social networks, the photo will post only to Instagram, viewable only by those users who follow you on the app.
Adding a Photo:
Adding Filters-the Fun Part:
