How to Use Instagram to Grow Your YouTube Account

Are you trying to grow your YouTube account using your Instagram followers? If you're just starting out this can be a bit of a confusing process but we've found a plugin to help make this easy. In this video, we will show you how to use Instagram to grow your YouTube Account.

This video is sponsored by Smash Balloon, a powerful plugin to help you optimize your site for search engines, take a look at Smash Balloon here:

For the first recommended method we recommend creating short videos or versions of your videos letting your viewers know that you have a YouTube channel and you have some long-form content that they may like.

For the second method, if you have a website then we would recommend embedding your Instagram and YouTube on to your site. To do that we will be using two of the tools from Smash Balloon, you can use our code above for a great discount.

Once you purchase the YouTube and Instagram versions, go to your site under Plugins, Add New, Upload and add the zip files to your WordPress site. Now you can add your license key to the settings of the plugin and connect your Instagram to allow you to start embedding. We will go through the same process for connecting your site to YouTube to set that up as well.

Now when you visit a post or page with the block editor there should be an Instagram Feed and a YouTube feed that you can place and style how you want on your site.

Lastly, if you want to jump-start your followers we would recommend running a giveaway on your site with a plugin like RafflePress. RafflePress gives you multiple tools and customizations for you to use.
