We’re all used to the fact that Instagram copied Snapchat. It has its pros and cons. Pro – you can now have the Insta-Snap experience within one platform.

Snapchat filters have been popping up through Instagram stories. No – the gram has not upgraded its selfie filter game. So how do you get snaps onto your Instagram Story?

The Recipe

What you will need:

  •  Snapchat
  • Camera Roll
  • Instagram


1. Use Snapchat as per usual. Add emojis, filters, colourful text or hilarious face swaps as desired.

2. Before posting, click the save button. Alternatively, head to your Snapchat Story and save from there. This is useful for saving a series of videos or images.

5. Select & publish!

It’s a simple as that! However, as responsible marketers, we must caution against posting the same content in the same way on multiple platforms. Make sure you consider the difference between your Snapchat audience and your Instagram audience. Don’t leave your Insta-fans feeling like they are getting served up seconds. Show a little original love on there too.
