Welcome back to another blog post! Today we’re delving into the world of Instagram to help you take your content to new heights by incorporating your favorite music.
In this guide, we’ll explore the basics of adding music directly through Instagram and discover creative ways to include tracks from external sources.
Adding Music to an Instagram Post
Let’s start with the essentials. Instagram provides a built-in feature that allows you to seamlessly integrate music into your posts. Here’s a simple step-by-step guide:
- Open the Instagram app and tap the plus button to create a new post.
- Select your desired media from the camera roll and click “Next.”
- As you apply filters, look for the music icon at the top. Click on it to access Instagram’s music library.
In the music library, you can search for specific songs, and explore by mood, genre, or popularity. Once you’ve found the perfect track, customize which part of the song you want to play in your post. Just like that, your post is now accompanied by a fantastic soundtrack!
But what if you’re looking to be a bit more creative?
Adding Music from External Sources
While Instagram’s music library is vast, it might not have that niche indie track you adore. Here’s where external music apps come into play. Let’s use Spotify as an example:
- Navigate to your desired song on Spotify.
- Click on ‘Share’ and select ‘Instagram Stories.’
This creates a new Instagram story featuring the album art and a link to the song. Here’s a neat trick: If you want to customize visuals, overlay the album art with your own image or video, and the music will still play when your followers view your story.
Whether you’re using Instagram’s library or an external app like Spotify, you now have the tools to make your posts truly sing.
Amplify Your Message with the Right Sound
Remember, the right music can significantly enhance your message and captivate your followers on a whole new level. Now, armed with these techniques, it’s your turn to go out there and create some musical masterpieces!
