If you have a Google business listing or a Facebook page with address of your business, Instagram will generate a location for your business. To find out if your business already has a location, simply search your business name in the app and press ‘Places’ to filter.
You may discover that users have been taking great photographs or videos at your business! Alternatively, they may mention or tag you. If the tag is in a user’s story, you can simply select ‘Add to your Story’. Regularly keep up to date with your notifications to track activity like this.
Private message them or comment on their content and ask if it would be ok for you to repost. You can repost via a third-party app such as Reshare for Instagram, get them to send you the original, or screenshot and trim the photo. Generally, people find it flattering and will be happy to give you permission to repost! It also shows real people interacting with your brand, which is likely to influence potential customers.
