Archive for the ‘Using Instagram Stories’ tag


without comments

Yesterday I joined my dear friend Kim Klassen for her webinar series “Lunch & Learn” if you missed it and would like to watch again… head over to her online studio and sign up for free to check it out, plus you can watch her previous (and future) sessions which are full of so much information.

It was such a fun conversation… sharing tips and answering questions about making films to share on Instagram and beyond… I loved chatting with Kim – hopefully she’ll invite me back soon!

A couple of questions came up during the session… ones I often get asked… so I thought I would share some details here…

We talked about Instagram Stories and Laura hadn’t used it yet, so mentioned I made a tutorial back when it first came out… but then I realised it would be out of date now… So here’s an updated version, that I made recently for some clients, in case you’ve not started using Stories yet either.

I share some of the features you can use to get creative on Instagram Stories… For example, adding photos & videos, using the text & paint tool, adding stickers and locations and watching back your stories.

Hope you find it useful!

I also shared my favourite place to find music at the moment – I feel Soundstripe read my mind by creating a library full of great instrumentals, in all sorts of genres, at a great price. The monthly subscription allows you to download as many tracks as you like. I’ve been a member since the beginning of the year and each week I’ve found something new for Scenes From The Weekend films and recently on my Day In The Life films. I can’t praise it enough!

Check out Soundstripe and if you’d like a 10% off a subscription… use the code xantheb

(FYI I do get a small commission for each sign up, but I genuinely love this company, so would share it regardless)

Do let me know if you’ve got any other questions that I can answer here… pop them in the comments or let me know over on Instagram.
