Instagram inspires creativity around the world, with over 1 billion+ users and over 500 billion daily active users, and I believe that by now you are aware that your business needs and should be on Instagram, or any other social media channels.
Instagram is 6th most popular social network worldwide.
Since 2017, Instagram lets you upload up to 10 images as 1 swipeable carousel.
They want you to share more of your experience, to share your products, even to tell a story.
These feature gave some marketers the idea instead of looking for one perfect image that says all, to combine more images into a single post.
What a simple idea turned into a trend, turned into a marketing strategy.
Instagram Carousels are so popular, that it’s a known fact that user-generated content has a 4.5% higher conversion rate.
How about that? 🙂
Are you looking to win the “Instagram carousel” game?
Making carousel posts takes time, and it’s not an easy task, especially at the beginning. But with hard work and dedication, I’m sure you will master this.

Get your ready-to-go Instagram Carousel
Before I present to you my ready-to-go carousel, which by the way, at the end of this post, you’ll have the chance to download it and to use it as you please, I’ll share some tips with you to consider before using it:
Tip 1 | Target audience
You need to be selective with the audience you choose for this kind of posts.
Tip 2 | Tell a story
Telling a story helps you build brand awareness, telling a story can hook your audience.
Tip 3 | Use the whole space
You will need to find ways to use the whole space (keep in mind that we are talking about 10 images, not just one). And yes, there’s a golden rule: ABOUT 20% TEXT.
