Now that you know a few different ways to use Instagram Guides, making them will be easy and fun to do!
The user-friendly approach will have you setting up your Guide within seconds. And before you know it, you will be editing and adding to your Guides so it aesthetically represents your brand in the best way. Let’s get started!
Step 1: Go to your Instagram Profile page, tap the “+” icon on the top right of your screen then tap “Guide” on the menu.
Step 2: From there you will have three options to choose from. Each Guide type is designed for every type of creator. Whether you’re a business owner, influencer, or both, you’ll be recommending products, cities, and content to your followers in no time!
- Places - suggest to your followers places in your city to visit
- Products - link out your favorite products or services you offer or a brand you like to offer
- Posts - share the posts you have created or saved
Step 3: After you select your Guide type you can start choosing what to add to your Guide. In the example above, we chose the Posts Guide type where we added a few of our favorite posts from MegYaLooks Instagram. You can add your own title and caption to give further context to your readers.
Step 4: Once you add your title, select your Cover Photo, and captions for each post included in the Guide, you are ready to publish. Click “Next” in the top right corner of your screen and then tap “Share.”
Step 5: Once you tap “Share” your Guide is public to your followers. To access your Guides your followers will click the “Guide” icon on your Instagram’s profile page.
After you’ve created your set of Guides, you can always go back and edit to accommodate the way your business or brand evolves. You can remove old products, update evergreen content, and more!
