Thank you for being the one who finally got me to take the time to post this. Welcome to our client list, Sprig and Glow – we can’t wait to work with you.
Also, thanks to my biz partner who downloaded and tested a gazillion reposter apps to find the best one for us.
WAY ONE – NO APP
(Technically, not a re-post, but it gets the job done.)
On your phone, do a screen capture of the post.
Note the poster’s Instagram handle.
Open Instagram and use the cropping feature to crop out everything except the photo.
Then post as you do usually. Thank the poster and use a @hashtag with their Instagram handle.
(If you want to be re-posted, be a brand ambassador and do as this poster, @mercygoddard did – be a brand’s dream Instagrammer. She tagged the photo with our clients name so it was easy for me to find the post. Plus she made a great photo that fits our client’s brand and looks beautiful with her Halo Fab Blow Out.)
WAY TWO – WITH APP
The app that currently works the best for us is Repost for Instagram.
We never did find one app that functioned the way the app directions stated.
For this re-poster app, these are the directions that work for us. Of course, your phone may be different, settings, and who knows what else. We’re hoping this blog post at least gets you moving in the right direction.
(@sf_skin_and_brows made the original post and because she used #hayesvalleymed, I was able to find it.)
Step one is downloading the free app (you get ads on your re-post – see graphic on left- it’s just @get_repost – so no big deal) to your phone.
Once you have the app installed,
1 – be sure you are logged into Instagram and can re-find the post you wish to re-post,
2 – open app and click the Instagram logo at top/right,
3 – click the three little dots at the top/right of the post – you’ll get a drop-down with several options if the poster has their settings allowing a re-post. Select “Copy Link”,
4 – go back to the app where you’ll see the post you wish to re-post with a little right-arrow icon. Click that, type in a post if you wish, add your hashtags if you wish, and click the blue button.
