How to Upload an Animated Gif to Instagram Even Though Instagram Won't Let You!
In this quicky training video you'll discover how to "Upload an Animated Gif to Instagram Even Though Instagram Won't Let You!"
Okay, as you may know, Instagram doesn't allow animated gifs to be uploaded on their platform. That is at this time and I don't know if they'll add that function in the future or not. Maybe, maybe not.
Who cares? Not me 😜
That's because I've got a little hack, or cheat, which you can use to turn an animated gif into a tiny MP4 file which is actually just a regular video.
It's easy peasy lemon squeezy.
Why upload animated gifs (or videos) to Instagram?
Well in my experience they get a LOT more attention than any static image will. For example, I uploaded a low quality animated gif (which you'll see in this video above) and after 1 hour it had 89 views. There wasn't even a caption with it or any hashtags. Just the animated gif (video)
Anyhoo, take a look at how easy it is to upload a seeminly animated gif which is actually a converted gif to your Instagram.
It's worth mentioning, the same goes for any social media. If you have a bit of movement in an image, it helps to get attention in the crowd. It's called "pattern interrupt", or "NLP"...google it for more details...
Ciao for now!
