To create and maintain a popular online social media campaign as we do as a digital marketing agency you should consistently post top-quality, innovative and intriguing content. And that’s where Instagram’s Story takeovers are a great strategy to add to your social media toolbox. To put it simply for now before I go into further detail, an Instagram takeover is defined as a user or brand taking over another user’s Instagram account for a specific period to post their own content.

Secondly, platforms like Twitter and Instagram have a limit on how long a video post can be. Keeping social media interviews short and sweet automatically optimize them for all platforms, making scheduling a much easier task.
