Instagram Update- Face Filters

Instagram continue their snapchat onslaught with the addition of face filters

instagram, ig, insta, snapchat, katie colella social, social media assistant, virtual assistant, instagram features, ig update

 

Over the past few months, we have seen loads of new features being added to Instagram, many of which have a certain similarity to Snapchat.

Many people had predicted this latest addition, and yesterday it came- IG launched face filters to IG stories- very like those we love on Snapchat.

 

You can currently choose from eight live filters with the same features that Snapchat offer- such as twitching ears and noses. Here are the list of the current filters

  • Golden crown
  • Koala bear
  • Nerd
  • Bunny
  • Pink butterfly crown
  • Ice Queen
  • Diva
  • The ‘magic touch’ filter that makes you look like a better you!

Please note these are my opinion on the names of the filters- not official names

How can I access these IG Story face filters?

ig, insta, instagram, face filters, snapchat, ig filters, snapchat filters, katie colella social

Go to your story by clicking the camera icon in the top right hand corner of the home page

There is now a new face icon In the bottom right hand corner- click on that

This will bring up the selection of filters for you to choose from.

You can then add geo-location tags and write anything you like on the photo too.

You have the choice to save the photo- send to friends or add to your story.

They also work with the Boomerang video clips

They work on both back and forward facing cameras.

So far, I’d say they seem like a simlar version of the Snapchat filters- they don’t distort your face as much as some of the Snapchat- but these are the first few, so who knows what future launches will bring. IG have said they’d like these filters to be less wacky so they appear to a wider audience and not just the teenage group.

You’re going to have to excuse the wet hair on these pics- I got drenched on the school run (oh, the glamour!).

 

IG Rewind Mode

This new update also released the new rewind feature. This basically allows you to create clips, which you can then play backwards as a special effect.

There is a new hashtag sticker feature – much like the location stickers, allowing your viewers to click and go to all related content for that #. They can be added as text. 

 

IG Eraser Feature

Another part of this update is the eraser feature allowing you to erase anything you may have drawn. A great way to use this is to cover your image with one block colour and erase parts of it with the eraser to reveal the picture below.

  • Take a photo
  • Choose a colour
  • Hold your finger on the photo to make the whole screen your selected colour
  • Then use the eraser feature to erase parts of the colour as shown

The features are currently available in IG 10.21 for both Android and iOS.

 

Are you a Snapchat user? Will this current update stop you from using Snapchat? Personally, I only ever used SnapChat for the filters and I’m a bigger fan of Instagram overall, so I think my use of Snapchat will decrease and I can see a lot of people doing the same thing. Insta will only continue to add to their filters and improve on them.

 

 

Make Those Goals Happen- Manifesting Tips

Manifesting- What is it?

Manifesting is intentionally creating what you want. This works through the Law Of Attraction. I won’t go into this too much today (I’ll do another post about that), but wanted to give you a few tips to get you started on manifesting the life you deserve!

Goals- write them down

We all read about the importance of setting goals for ourselves in business all the time, but do you really spend the time sitting down, getting focused and deciding what your goals are going to be for the day/week/month/year? REALLY? I know, previously I have ‘played’ at it. I’ll write something out, but I don’t tend to look at them again and they go into a forgotten land. This is how not to do it. I’m now making so much more effort with actually writing them frequently and looking at them as often as I can- so they are imprinted on my mind. I take daily steps toward my goals, so I know I am on the road to achieving them. So I’m planning the goals and working toward them. Setting them isn’t enough alone, but it’s a great first step!

Vision Boards

Another easy to do task that is fun and can make a difference to your mindset, having your goals visually for you to see as often as you can. This can be a physical memo board with pictures and quotes on, based on your visions and goals for the future. It can be a screensaver on your laptop, desktop or phone, or all 3. I have mine on my desktop, so I see it literally 10’s of times a day.

These can be created easily in Canva or something similar. Just set the size of your graphic to your screensize and add any pictures that represent what you want. These don’t have to be the actual thing that you are trying to achieve but must represent the feeling you associate with that goal.

Pinterest Goals Board

This is probably the easiest way to create a vision board. If you haven’t discovered Pinterest- you need to- set up an account here. It’s completely free and is a great way to save a secret board or a public board- completely up to you. You can have one big goals board or smaller ones for certain areas of your life. I love my Pinterest board and often add extra pictures or quotes to it, that represent my goals.

Affirmations

Keep inspiring quotes and affirmations around you, to help you believe that you really can achieve whatever you like and that you are truly fantastic.

I’ve created a set of 12 FREE affirmation cards for you to download here, print them off and keep them around you to help keep you inspired and focused on your goals.

Phone Reminders

This is something that I read in the lovely Denise Duffield-Thomas’ book recently.To see your visions and goals laid out as many times and in as many ways as possible, helps you believe they are true. So as well as the vision boards, set yourself a daily reminder. This could be ‘Yay- I’ve hit £4k this month’ or ‘You have 10 new clients this month’ or whatever one of your main goals is. Start to believe it and believe that you are worthy of hitting those goals!

Denise has a fantastic 5-day manifesting challenge – let me know if you decide to give it a go!

 

Passwords

I’ve heard this a few times, but never got around to doing it, but it’s a simple easy thing to try that can only bring positivity! Set your password to something that is related to your goals. This could be sixfigures, sevenfigures, tenclients, firstclass or a word that explains how you’ll feel when you have reached your goals such as ‘ecstatic’ or ‘proud’. These all help to reinforce those feelings that we’ll feel when we reach those goals. We use passwords numerous times a day, so this is a powerful reinforcement! I’ve just started to do this.

 

Visualisation

Visualising is when you literally spend time visualising something that you want to happen. This could be hitting those goals- so hitting a financial target, signing another 3 clients, getting that big contract, writing a book, flying first class, whatever it is you’d like to happen. You visualise something in your mind as though you have already done it and you visualise yourself as having achieved that goal and the way you feel when that happens. Again, there is so much more I could go into about this, but this is just a quick overview. There are some great guided visualisations to help you get you started on YouTube.

My Personal Manifesting Story

So, I’m a very practical person, I like to have a reason for things and haven’t previously believed that we are able to ‘manifest’ things into our life or make things happen, simply by believing they can.

 

However, the past few months, I’ve started to have a shift on my beliefs and what maybe can be achieved. I read Gabby Bernstein’s “the Universe has your back’ which I enjoyed and was the first time I opened my mind to the whole idea that we can manifest things into our life. I have also just finished Denise Duffield-Thomas’ book- Get Rich, Lucky Bitch as I said, and I absolutely loved it. So easy to read and written in a way that I could get my head around. I’d thoroughly recommend it!

manifesting, katie colella social, social media, virtual assistant, goals, visualisation, visualization, manifest, goal boards, vision boards, affirmations

 

So, these past few weeks I’ve decided to make manifesting and visualising part of my daily goals. At first, to be honest I felt really silly. I’m naturally a positive person (most of the time) and I’m a happy, motivated person and in all honesty, this pushed my out of my comfort zone a little.

Firstly I closed my eyes and as instructed in a great video via the Female entrepreneur Association with Carrie Green (I’m a member, which gives you extra resources) and Susan Ferraro I asked the universe for a sign. I was instructed to listen to the first thing that popped into my head. So, I closed my eyes and whilst most people get a pretty butterfly or white feather- I thought of a beetle- yes the grubby little insect!

Over the next few days, I noticed a fair few signs that this could actually work. I kept seeing ‘Beetles’ – the car, but that wasn’t quite good enough for me……then I seen someone on FB write something about The Beatles (band), but she had misspelled it as Beetles- the word literally jumped off the page at me, then my daughter came home from school and said she had done a test in school and part of it was about beetles. So going from thinking how on earth am I going to come across a beetle – I found that I was presented with beetles in various ways. This could be a complete coincidence, but I liked it! It made me think, how cool, I’m going to keep doing this.

So going from thinking how on earth am I going to come across a beetle – I found that I was presented with beetles in various ways. This could be a complete coincidence, but I liked it! It made me think, how cool, I’m going to keep doing this.

 

I’ve now been making a real effort to visualise daily and make a conscious effort to use some of the tips above, to really believe that I can reach my goals. What’s the worse that can happen? It’ll only make me feel more positive in the long run, so I’m happy to give it a go.

Now, I’ve set a certain money monthly target that I’d like to hit this month, and also the number of clients or work, I’d like to have by the end of this month and this is what I’ve been visualising daily.

 

On Saturday, I received 2 payments from old invoices that were overdue. I also received a refund from Fiverr for something that I’d paid for and hadn’t been delivered. I’d been waiting for these to be paid for some time. On Sunday, I had a real de-clutter, something that you are advised to do by Denise in her book. I thought- at least my house will be tidier!

Then, as I’m writing this, a client that I’ve worked with in the past and had wanted to work with me again- but who I hadn’t heard from in weeks, out of the blue, messaged me and said, can I pay the invoice now and get started.

Um, hello, if this is what comes from visualising daily, then I’m all in. These are very early days for me, but I’m happy to keep going on this journey and report back what my experiences are.

I’d love for any of you guys to share your success stories with me, either comment below or message me if you’d like to guest post for me and share your successes!

And please let me know if you decide to take part in the 5 day manifesting challenge with Denise Duffield Thomas- I’d love to hear your goals!

How to Know if You’re Ready to Outsource

Guest Post

Hey, I’m Jenn from Unit 25 Creative + Consulting. If you’re a fellow business owner, you know how quickly time can get away from you. Sometimes you just need another pair of hands! It can be scary to think about outsourcing, but I want to help you overcome your obstacles and see how outsourcing can benefit you and help you grow your business.

katie colella social, social media assistant, virtual assistant, outsource, freelance, outsourcing, are you ready to outsource, guest post, blogging

 

Disclaimer: This post contains affiliate links, denoted by *

 

You may be asking: “How can outsourcing help me? I’m on top of all of my business tasks, and I never feel like I don’t have enough time to do everything.” Oh, wait, that’s not you? It’s okay: it’s not me either. If you’re thinking about outsourcing, you’re probably looking for one (or more) of these three things: Time, Flexibility, and Support.

 

On of the biggest benefits of outsourcing is that it can free up your time. By giving someone else the tasks that take you more time than they’re worth or that you just drag your feet over, you instantly have more time. You can invest that time back into income-producing business activities, your family, skydiving, or whatever else your heart desires!

 

Having someone else involved in your business also gives you the flexibility to know that your business is in good hands if you take time off, as well as a support net. If you’ve struggled with trying to take time off from your business or going it alone, this aspect of outsourcing can be worth its weight in gold!

Preparing to Outsource

Okay, so you know that you want to outsource. But where in the world do you start?!

The first thing you should do is ensure that your systems and processes are in place. After all, if you don’t know HOW you do what you do, will you be able to explain it coherently to a new hire? Short answer: No.

 

To document your processes, start by keeping a running list of everything you do throughout a given day, or at least the aspects that you want to outsource. Start fleshing out that list by detailing what steps go into each process.

 

For example, if you’re documenting your Tailwind process, it might go something like this:

  • Log into Tailwind* and check overall stats
  • Check Tribes* for new content
  • Skip or share content as appropriate
  • Check other Tailwind stats
  • Wrap up with Domain stats and add one domain Pin to Tribes

That’s a relatively simplified process, but you get the idea. You can always expand on your steps further in the future, but get the general gist of it down now. This will give you something to provide your new hire with when you begin the training process and will make it SO much easier on both of you!

 

The other thing you will want to do is create brand guidelines, especially if you’re hiring someone for social media or anything else that will need to be branded. Your brand guidelines should include your colour palette, fonts, brand voice/style, etc. This will help your new hire maintain your cohesive brand face and cut down on miscommunications about these items.

Where to Start Your Outsourcing Search

Once you have your systems/processes and brand guidelines in place, you’re ready to go! These documents should give you a solid foundation to train your new hire on. So where do you start?

katie colella social, virtual assistant, virtual assistance, social media assistant, social media, outsource, outsourcing, guest blog,

 

First, ask for recommendations from friends and colleagues. Even if they’re in a different field than you, they may have worked with a fantastic freelancer in the past who they would love to tell you about. Word of mouth is the best marketing, and it gives you a positive review before you even speak with the person!

 

If no one you know has any recommendations, you can start searching online (or ask us over at Unit 25 Creative + Consulting!). Katie is also a great option for social media and virtual assistance, though I’m sure you already know that!

 

Regardless of where you find potential candidates, make sure that you are clear about what you’re looking for. For example, if you need someone in a certain time zone, tell them up front! There are few things more frustrating than going through the entire process with someone, deciding that they’re the perfect fit… and then realising that there’s a small detail that makes them ineligible.

 

Side note: Don’t go with the cheapest option just because they’re the cheapest!! I cannot stress this enough. At Unit 25, I hear from entrepreneurs who have done this and regretted it. It can not only waste your time, but it can negatively impact your business. Sometimes the cheapest option can be the best one, but not if that is their only qualification.

 

If you don’t feel like you can afford the right person to outsource to just yet, make sure to check out the free Outsourcing for Success Bootcamp, which will give you additional in-depth resources and tips for outsourcing on a tight or non-existent budget.

What to Look for in a Potential Outsourcing Candidate

While you’re searching for your new hire, keep an eye out for these three traits:

  • Organization:

If a candidate isn’t organised before they work for you, chances are that they won’t be while working for you either. Ask them questions about their existing systems and processes, both for the task they will be performing for you and for their CRM (how they’ll invoice you, track their time, etc.). If they aren’t able to answer satisfactorily, they may not be the right fit.

  • Proficiency:

Do they know what they’re talking about? If a social media manager can’t answer basic questions about how they create a social media plan, schedule posts, or simple things like that, then move on.

  • Results:

Can they show you the results they have achieved for other clients? Sometimes you may run across someone bound by confidentiality agreements with larger companies that they work with (I’ve had to deal with this myself for my team’s social media manager), but they should still be able to explain the steps they took to achieve the desired results.

Don’t forget that if you need social media or virtual assistance, Katie is your gal!If you’re looking for branding, content, marketing, or support services, I would love to chat with you about how Unit 25 Creative + Consulting’s team can achieve the results you want. And if you want to get more in-depth resources to help you overcome the obstacles of outsourcing despite a tight budget, control issues, or lack of established systems, make sure to grab the FREE 5-day Outsourcing for Success Bootcamp!

The Importance Of Branding For Your Business

Guest post by the amazing graphic designer and branding queen Gillian Sarah, scroll to the bottom to hear more about Gillian.
brands, branding, business, katie colella social, virtual assistant, social media assistant, social media, goals, uk business, branded business

One of the most common misconceptions people have is that a brand is simply your logo, tagline, or website in general. However, a brand is much more than this. Branding involves your logo, your website, every aspect of a customer’s experience, staff uniforms, social media posts, and marketing. Ultimately, it refers to the perception that people have about you.

Despite the fact that having a great logo design can catch your visitor’s attention, a brand is not just your logo.

A good brand isn’t defined overnight. It takes time to build it since it involves a lot of planning and development.

Here are the top 8 reasons why you should consider developing your brand:

#1: Recognition:

People are emotional. So, they are more likely to do business with a company that they are familiar with than with one they never even heard about. If you manage to make your brand easy to recognize and consistent, it will help people feel more comfortable doing business with you.

#2: Setting You Apart From Competition:

The business world is more competitive than ever. So, in order for your business to succeed, you need to have an edge that will make people buy from you and not from the local store next to you or from the big worldwide company.

#3: Generating Referrals:

One of the things people like to do is to tell others about the brands they like. So, you really need to create a strong brand or most probably people won’t even remember you.

brands, branding, business, katie colella social, virtual assistant, social media assistant, social media, goals, uk business, branded business

#4: Helping Customers Know What To Expect:

When you have a consistent brand, your customers know exactly what they are getting. And this is why they keep coming back.

#5: Representing You And Your Promise To Your Customers:

When we are talking about creating and developing your brand, you need to be aware that the brand is also you, it’s also your staff, or your materials, or your uniforms. The most important thing is that they are all tied in with the brand itself.

#6: Creating Clarity And Staying Focused:

One of the benefits of having a consistent brand is that your staff always know what they need to do, how to do it, and how to make sure the company reaches its goals. So, having a clear brand allows everyone involved in the company to be aware of its mission and vision, and comply with them.

#7: Connecting Emotionally With Your Customers:

When someone decides they want to do business with you, it means that they are trusting you. Ultimately, purchasing is an emotional experience. And when you have a strong and consistent brand, people will stay emotionally attached to you.

brands, branding, business, katie colella social, virtual assistant, social media assistant, social media, goals, uk business, branded business

#8: Providing Your Business Value:

Just think for a second about the brands that you like and purchase. Some might include Coca-Cola, Apple, MacDonald’s, among others). Do you really think these companies are only worth their factories, their equipment, their products, their warehouses? No, they are worth a lot more than just their physical assets. They managed to create a brand whose value exceeds all their physical assets.

Using FB ads for your business

Why you need to be using Facebook Ads to reach your Ideal client.

If you haven’t tried Facebook ads before, and don’t really know much about them, then here’s an intro to using Facebook ads for your business, to attract your ideal client.

When I owned and run my last business- an eCommerce business selling homeware and gifts, Facebook ads were a huge part of my strategy for reaching more customers and sales- I spent a fortune on them!

 

When I started I could organically reach a good percentage of my followers, but as time has gone on, Facebook has changed so much and the organic reach is now extremely low compared to what it used to be. But we all have to spend money on marketing our business in one form or another and FB ads are a great way to start to reach our ideal clients.

 

You have the ability to reach your ideal client, using specifics like demographics such as gender, age and location as well as targeting fans of specific pages, people with various hobbies, interests and habits. The more you start to look into FB ads the more you’ll realize how amazingly powerful they can be. I know many entrepreneurs that use them as a main part of growing their business.

 

The stats: Let’s look at Facebook.

There are various different types of Facebook ads depending on what your goal is. You may wish to increase your likes on your page, you may want to push people to your website or opt-in. or you may wish to try and get customers to sign up for your service or course.

Whatever your goal is, there is a FB ad for you.

When you look to set up FB ads, don’t be scared away by all the options.

Yes- please send me the FB ads worksheet!



The most common types of ads are

Conversions, and Traffic.

You are basically telling Facebook that you would like your ad optimized for the purpose of your ad.

 

Here are a few of the most popular ways to use FB ads.

 

 

  1. Increasing Your Facebook Likes.

Page like ads can be a great way to start growing your following and likes to your page and can be set up from as little as £1 or a $ a day.

If you are struggling to build your following and want an easy way to try and grow your following and improve the credibility of your Facebook page, these are a great way to start.

 

  1. List Building.

If you don’t have a big list and believe that increasing your list is your goal, then we can use Facebook’s list to encourage people to visit your opt-in or freebie so they are on your list. Once they are signed up, you can then send your list content that you’d like them to see. If you are selling a product, then these are great for offering a discount or free gift when a customer purchases. These are probably the most common, that I’m sure you have seen in your newsfeed.

 

  1. Sending customers/clients to your website

If you don’t want to offer a freebie or opt-in page straight off, but would like to increase the traffic to your website- such as a blog post, then make sure you choose something that offers amazing value content. If you have a video or blog post that is rich in content on your website or offers the reader the option to learn something, they’ll want to find out more, so make sure you offer an opt –in at this stage, encouraging them to sign up to our lost, so they can learn more value from you. When you next set up a FB ad, you can also re-target those people that have visited previously.

The perception for many small business owners is that

  1. Facebook ads don’t work
  2. Facebook ads are expensive

 

They do work, especially when used correctly and aimed at targeting the correct people. I’ve had first hand experience of using them and seeing how they work for me.

 

You can actually get started for as little as £/$1 a day, to see what result you get. When I run ads for clients, I’d recommend setting up at least 4 different ads to test out what works best for you, at approx. £5/$5 per ad/per day. A Facebook pixel can be installed in your website to track the conversions that your FB ad has generated.

  1. Focus on one task at a time.

When we have a lot going on, It’s tempting to flit from one task to another, never actually completing one, before moving to something else. This can be extremely inefficient, as it takes time for our brains to re-program to each task, so we are way better off concentrating on one task at a time.

 

  1. Create a schedule.

I find sticking to a schedule makes me more focused and allows me to stay o target. If I don’t have a schedule that I have taken the time to write down the day’s tasks, I know I can get distracted and waste time doing unimportant tasks.

 

  1. Self Care

More important than we realise.

Drink water- keep hydrated and your energy levels will stay up.

Take breaks- I know we all like to work our socks off, and often don’t want to stop the task in hand, but taking a short break will help your energy levels.

Exercise- especially in the morning can help with our productivity levels and give us a boost to get through the day, work efficiently and save time.

 

  1. Organise in advance

Take the time the night before to think about the following day and write down your to-do list and what you want to achieve. Some people prefer to take the first 30mins of each day to do this, but whenever it suits you- this is so important.

  1. Outsource

Spend your time on the tasks that you do best, and save time by outsourcing tasks that others can do. Help decide what tasks are best outsourced by writing a list of tasks that you don’t enjoy, can’t do, or nee help with, or that take too much of your valuable time.

 

Yes, I need help!

 

  1. Switch it off!

Every now and again we all need to take a break from our mobiles and time consuming social media.

Allow yourself a set time to go and check on your social, rather than feeling the need to respond to everything immediately.

 

  1. Is it urgent?

We need to work out the difference between what is urgent and important. If things aren’t urgent, such as emails, don’t feel the need to respond immediately. This can stop you mid-flow on a task in hand, and when you come back to that task, it takes time to get your brain engaged again!

  1. Schedule interruptions

Unfortunately, it’s a fact of life that interruptions and the unexpected can and will pop up, so always allow time to schedule in these last minute tasks. For instance, I can schedule in client work and my own work for each working hour Mon-Fri, but when I get a new client reach out asking for an appointment, then I’ll need to make time for that.

 

  1. Stay positive.

This may sound strange but think about it. When you are at the top of your game and you are feeling amazing, you have loads of clients or customers, you feel great and you are positive, you’ll get so much more done and be more efficient.

When you are feeling a little low, or have lost a client, or sales are slow, you won’t feel so great and you’ll start getting those niggling thoughts in your brain, ‘am I good enough?’ ‘I can’t do this’ ‘I can’t be successful’. This will do nothing but make you feel negative, with a mindset that won’t achieve and you’ll waste far too much time on these negative what-if thoughts!

Instagram Update!

 

Instagram announced yesterday that they now offer the option to save your live broadcasts.

This is an amazing new feature that many people will be thrilled with.

 

Until now one of the biggest issues with IG live video was that it appears in your IG stories and the video would disappear after 24hours. If you have created an amazing live video with great content, it always felt a huge waste that it would be gone and you couldn’t re-use it.

 

 

How to make a live video:

In Instagram, go to your home feed by clicking the house shape icon at the bottom left of the screen.

From here click the camera icon in the top left-hand corner of the screen. Scroll left at the bottom to LIVE. Your connection will be checked and you’ll be given a countdown of 3 when you will be live.

This will go out to all your followers and will stay on your IG stories for 24 hours.

 

How to save a live video:

When you are done. Click end video. You’ll then be taken to another screen. Click save in the top right-hand corner of the screen. The video will now be saved to your camera roll as well as added to your IG stories. Then click done!

Unfortunately, you can’t save the comments, likes or the number of viewers, but at least we can save the video, which is a definite step in the right direction.

 

According to the Instagram blog, we can expect many more features and Instagram updates this year, especially surrounding video! With so many great new features already released recently- I can’t wait to see more!

Have you used any of the new IG features? Do you use live video? Let us know in the comments below.

Know you need to be using Instagram for your business, but don’t have the time?

I can manage it for you!

Yes! I need help with IG

So the past year has been filled with updates from IG and 2017 so far has been no different with numerous updates from the popular social media platform.

If you don’t currently use Instagram- seriously take a look, it’s an amazing platform with so many great features that you just have to try!

Multi-photo (or carousel feature)

This feature was rolled out earlier this month for most users and quite frankly adds a completely new opportunity to users.

Instead of just being bale to post one picture or video with each post, you can now post up to 10, on a single IG post.

If you have ever juggled with which picture you prefer, don’t stress, just use them all!

It makes an amazing mini-explainer slideshow or teaching method. You can scroll through the images or videos one by one. You can tag users on individual pictures and even use different filters if you wanted to.

This is a really powerful new tool to encourage interaction and engagement for brands.

The idea is great to show off multiple pictures of new products or services or as a mini tutorial of how to do something.

How to create an Instagram Slideshow

Go to post like you usually would in IG. At the bottom right-hand corner of your picture is a multi-page icon or it may say ‘select multiple’ click on this, then add up to 10 photos or videos from your gallery. You can rearrange them if required. You can tag people in each one or use filters on each one. When ready, press next like you usually would, write your post and share!

IG are rolling out this new feature that allows you to place ads on Instagram stories. This is a great way to reach as many people in your target audience and to help build brand awareness.

How to set up an IG story Ad

This can be placed and managed through power editor or ads manager in Facebook.

When you select your marketing objective as ‘reach’ you now have stories as a placement option as well as feed within IG.

When select you can choose if you’d prefer an image or video. The rest is the exact same process of setting up an ad including budgets, audiences and targeting options.

Geostickers on IG

In another similarity to SnapChat, IG have rolled out geostickers. This addition is within Instagram stories. They work like Snapchat stickers do, allowing the user to select a sticker of their location. You can go and select a location like I have done in the picture- choosing my office- tagged as Katie Colella Social. Not quite as glamorous as New York!  Viewers can then touch that location sticker and view the location page for that place- that is populated with IG posts!

This is not a new feature this month, but worth a quick mention in my line up of top features.

If you are fed up of the constant spam comments on your posts, then you can block the comments from ever appearing on them.

‘want followers?’ block

‘click here for followers’ block
