With the rising popularity of Snapchat memories and Instagram live stories, we want to make sure you have the best creator tools to share the best content with your fans – on all of the platforms where they like to hang out.
That’s why we’re excited to announce TWO game-changing, new ways you can share content created in Epoxy – our quick and easy way to post to your Snapchat Story AND your Instagram live story! It’s the perfect way to promote, celebrate, and share, without any hassle. We’ll send you the video clip or graphic, so it can easily be uploaded from your phone’s camera roll.
So let’s chat about how you can use this update to be a Social Storytelling master!
1. Create an Account
This might be old news for some of you, but for those still on the fence about whether they can build an audience on Instagram or Snapchat … give it a try! It can’t hurt to create an account and you might be surprised at the number of your subscribers or followers that would love to follow you on another platform. Pro Tip: try to keep your handles and branding consistent across each social platform, so that it’s easy for your community to recognize your account. Also, be sure to promote each platform across all of the others, so that your subscribers can be followers and friends can be Fan Page likes and so on.
2. Promote an Upcoming Video
Think Instagram won’t drive viewers back to your YouTube channel? Think again. With the ability to upload clips to your Live Story from your camera roll and then link out to a URL, Instagram has become the perfect way to promote an upcoming upload or announce a release. Create a quick video clip of the video using Epoxy and you’re good to go. No need to spend time on time-intensive edits.
3. Celebrate a Major Milestone
You work so hard to reach goals of certain numbers of subscribers or followers, but we both know you couldn’t do it without your community. Sharing a customized Epoxy Milestone graphic to your Snapchat Story or Instagram Live Story is a quick, but meaningful way to say thank you to those that helped you come all that way. Epoxy will automatically notify you when you’re almost at your next big milestone and when the big moment arrives. Letting your audience on Snapchat and Instagram know about milestones on your channel or on any of your social accounts can be a great strategy for cross-promoting and growing your community on every network.
4. Become a Meme Master
Did you know that you can create memes from your YouTube videos or even images from your desktop right in Epoxy? Sharing those memes to your Snapchat and Instagram are the perfect type of content you’d want for these ephemeral platforms. Not to mention, the best memes might inspire a ton of screenshots on Snapchat and boost engagement metrics.
5. Give a Shoutout
Do you have some OG super special ride or die extra awesome fans that deserve some recognition?? Creating a Shoutout using Epoxy is an easy way to make a personalized thank you graphic for your faves. Try picking Top Fans of the week or even announce a contest winner! How you customize and give thanks is totally up to you. It’s also a great way to build up that devoted community on a new platform, if you’re just starting your Snapchat or Live Story presence.
