Instagram: 3 Tips for Posting Without Taking Photos

Services for Real Estate Pros with Second Self Virtual Assistance

In case you’ve been too busy to notice, Instagram has become an extremely popular way to market your business on a platform of over 1 billion daily users.

Facebook owns Instagram but unlike Facebook Instagram’s popularity keeps growing.

Posting to Instagram does require a little photography skill. Since it’s such a visual medium high-quality photos are a must. If you don’t have a lot of confidence in your photography skills, though, I have some good news for you!


There are 3 ways you can post to Instagram without taking photos!

Use Stock Photography – There are photography sites that allow you to use their photos without cost. Others require a fee. Look at the kind of license they have and abide by their requirements. Using unauthorized photos can cost you a lot of money.


Here are 3 free photo sites. (Be sure to read their license.)



Add Your Own Spin

Another option is to use photography and then edit it. This can work with the stock photo option. Search for photos of people standing on mountains, or making other accomplishments, and then simply add artistic filters and quotes about success and the like. It’s a simple and easy way to make it your own!


Other People’s Instagram Photos

Many Instagram accounts are highly successful simply as a result of sharing photos that other users have taken. The only thing to keep in mind is copyright and fair play. Make sure you get permission from the creators. In most cases they will be flattered you asked and excited to get the free exposure. Win-win!
