BEST APPS FOR INSTAGRAM VIDEOS

ANCHOR VIDEOS

Audio is hard to share on social media. Most major social platforms don’t yet have native support for audio, so trying to raise awareness for your podcast or other audio content on social can be difficult. Anchor makes sharing audio to Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, YouTube – or anywhere else videos are consumed – incredibly easy.

First, just record audio directly into the Anchor app, or upload existing audio (a clip from your podcast, etc) to your Anchor account. Anchor Videos will then magically transcribe your audio. You can quickly fix any minor transcription issues and Anchor Videos will overlay your words synced perfectly with your audio in a beautiful, shareable video.

Best of all, you can export your video at whatever size you need: square (perfect for Instagram), wide (perfect for Facebook, Twitter, or Youtube), and tall (perfect for Instagram Stories). It’s that easy.

You will like it because most major social platforms aren’t built for audio-consumption. Sharing a URL to an hour-long podcast on Facebook will rarely convert to direct listeners in the moment. On the other hand, auto playing videos with mute-friendly captions are #trending and an effective way to grab peoples’ attention.

Anchor’s new tool lets you trim audio clips so you can share a minute from an insightful podcast, transcribed with captions. Here’s an example
Once you have downloaded your video on your computer, i normally send it to my own WhatsApp (Desktop version) account and then I go to my WhatsApp on my mobile, find the video, save it on my mobile and then upload it on Instagram. Hope it makes sense.
