Some call Instagram Stories the Snapchat Copycat. But, we’re not here today to debate whether or not Instagram stole Snapchat’s idea. Our only struggle with Instagram Stories is that it’s one more aspect of social media that we have to worry about! We find it nearly impossible to maintain a unique story on both Snapchat and Instagram. That is, until we discovered, we could add saved videos and images – including our Snapchat story – to our Instagram. Here’s an easy step-by-step tutorial to add your Snapchat story to Instagram.
Why Should I Share My Snapchat Story To Instagram?
We firmly believe in repurposing your content. You spent hours researching, creating and sharing your content so it only makes sense to try and get as much mileage as you can out of it. While many people have made the switch from Snapchat to Instagram, there are still millions of users hanging out on the platform. Since you’ve worked hard to acquire your following, don’t let them down by disappearing. Create your Snapchat story for the day, then download each snap to share on Instagram stories.
Follow these 5 easy steps :
Open Snapchat and take a photo/video with your filter of choice. Click the arrow inbox icon on the bottom to save it to your ‘memories.’
Exit out of the snap and return to home screen. Click on the ‘memories’ button under the shutter button. Once your memory is open, swipe down and you can export your snaps to camera roll.
Open instagram and tap the home button on the bottom left. Now, tap the camera in the upper left hand corner to open your Instagram Story.
Swipe from the center down and select your saved Snapchat Story. It will only show you Snaps that you’ve saved to your camera roll in the last 24 hours.
Add any additional text, filters or stickers that you want – then press the check mark at the bottom to post.
That’s it! Now, you can be on both Snapchat and Instagram to engage with your followers. That is twice the amount of exposure for your brand or business. Don’t let it go to waste!
