Everyone is posting their photos (and videos) these days and a great way to do so is with Instagram. The beauty of it is that in addition to posting the images, you are allowed to write a lengthy “caption” or explanation after it. Inserting hashtags allows searchers to find your post and like or comment on them. This is ideal for physicians and health marketers as there is so much to create images with- from procedures to symptomatology, to medical devices. The best part is that this site is where loads of your patients spend their viewing time as well as prospective patients who will be attracted to you and your practice.
But, Instagram is not where it ends!
There are three apps that I would like to recommend today for the health marketer, health copywriter and medical professional. Their purpose is to encourage likes and comments on Instagram from other people viewing your images. They act as magnets for viewers.
This application enables you to create squares with various backgrounds and two areas for text. The larger area provided is to add a quote and the smaller area is to insert the person cited. The color of the words can be modified by you as well.
If you decide to upgrade, additional features include more backgrounds with airbrushes abstracts and textures as eek as adding your own images for the background. The watermark is removed for your benefit here. You can extract quoters from your blog posts, inspirational quotes or sayings from the books that you have published. From here, you can post them to your social media ties, i.e. Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
Photogrid enables you to not only create collages but also prepare your collection of photos for Instagram. Three options on the app enable:
- Pinboard- a digital bulletin board
- Video Slides- makes your photos into a slide show
- Grid-frames with a range of creative to symmetrical
When you are satisfied with the way the collage was created by you, it can be exported to Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Flickr and Google+ as well as Instagram itself. Collages catches eyes which is your goal, after all!
Vidstitch enables you to create cool collages from your Instagram images and even insert a video clip to one of the frames within the collage. An upgrade enables widescreen images and an expanded gallery of photos.
Check these out and have fun with them!
