The world of Instagram can be a tricky thing to navigate. From the various features, to learning new tricks, there is a lot to learn. However, if you know where to look you can find a plethora of useful videos (and articles) on almost anything! In this post we will cover some specific ways that you can find tutorials for Instagram:
While it may seem obvious, a simple search (with specific keywords) on Google or Instagram’s own FAQs can tell you all you want to learn.
For example, if you want to find the best way to edit photos for your Instagram account, just type in: “free photo editing apps for Instagram” and check out the options that come up. If nothing else helpful comes up from this search, try adding some more specific information about what you want to do with those images by adding "tutorial," "how-to," or something similar in there.
Similarly, if there are certain features of Instagram that confuse you and which feature would benefit most from being explained in detail through video tutorials—say, how hashtags work—a simple search should turn up plenty of results.
If you're looking for more in-depth video tutorials on Instagram, you can try websites like Udemy and LinkedIn Learning (formally known as Lynda.com.)
Udemy is a paid service, but it has a lot of free content so it's worth checking out. You can search for "Instagram" on the Udemy website to find the best options for learning how to use Instagram for business purposes.
LinkedIn Learning is another good resource for finding in-depth video tutorials about any topic you want to learn about online—including using Instagram as part of your business marketing strategy!
YouTube is Your Friend
Even if you want to do the most obscure thing, there is almost a 100% guarantee that at least one other person has tried it as well and has made a tutorial.
To be more specific than “tutorials for instagram,” you can:
- Search "Instagram video tutorials." This will give you all sorts of results, including specific guides as well as general ones.
- Search "instagram editing" or "video editing tips." These will provide more focused results.
- Tutorials for beginners that show you how to use social media platforms like Instagram and Twitter. These tutorials can walk you through the basics and explain what each feature does.
There are tutorials by experts, who know everything about social media and want to share their knowledge with others. They make videos on topics such as designing graphics or creating a successful hashtag campaign.
You’ll also find videos from businesses looking to promote their products or services through Instagram, TikTok, Twitter, and more! These businesses will often include links in their video descriptions so people can purchase items directly from them--which is great if that's something you're interested in doing.
Look to Your Peers
Follow other creator accounts that often post useful tutorials and tricks. This way you can regularly find inspiration and tutorials when you need them. If you're looking for new video tutorials to learn from, start by looking at the accounts of other creators who post similar content. You can find these accounts by searching Instagram with hashtags related to the topic or niche you're interested in.
Once you've found a few accounts that seem promising, take some time to browse through their posts and see if they have any helpful tips. Don't hesitate to reach out and ask the account owner if they have any suggestions for tutorials or resources!
Even though TikTok and IG are fierce rivals, it doesn’t stop individual creators from cross-posting relevant tutorials. TikTok is FULL of amazing accounts dedicated to just about anything, including how to use their own platform.
Make it Yourself
For the rare occasions you can’t find a tutorial that fits your needs, you can use it as a great opportunity to both create content and help others also in need.
Creating video tutorials is an amazing way to get noticed on Instagram, as well as help others who are in the same situation. When creating tutorials, think of them as an opportunity to provide value to others while also promoting yourself.
Once the video is done (and edited!), share it wherever possible including on YouTube TikTok, so anyone online can see what kind of useful content creator you are!
