Instagram is that platform. Sharing pictures on Instagram does so much. It allows you to know what old friends are up to, it allows creators to build audiences and it also allows people to do business. In 2021, there’s nothing unusual about having multiple Instagram accounts or running a business Instagram account as a side gig. If you’re already managing multiple accounts or you’re looking to these hacks are life-savers.
Adding Multiple Accounts/Switching Between Accounts In Your IG App
Let’s cover the most obvious thing first. Instagram actually makes switching between accounts in the app super easy. Just go to your profile, tap your username (with the arrow next to it) at the top of the screen and press the add account button. Once you’ve added an account the same menu allows you to switch accounts (and timelines) easily.
How To Post The Same Photo/Video On All Your Accounts
It’s a good idea to share a post from one account on other accounts by tagging the sharer account in their stories. That way you make sure you’re leveraging followers on each account on all the other accounts as well. Saying something like “Take a look at what @thatBrand is doing on their page,” will drive anyone who watches the story to that page.
There are also going to be times when you want to post the exact same post with your multiple accounts. For that, you would prefer to use Facebook’s Creator Studio.
