How to make your own Instagram Gifs

Any time you use someone else’s gif on your Instagram story, you improve their brand recognition, not yours. Meantime, it’s so easy to create your own gif to use on your social media. 

Simply record a video of yourself using just your smartphone. You can remove the background using the free app so you can use it as an Instagram sticker. To upload it, you will need to create an account on Giphy and go through their application process. You will also need to upload a minimum of 5 gifs before you’re considered a ‘creator’ on Giphy. Once you go through this process, you can search for your name within the Instagram hidden gif list. 

If you want others to find and use your branded gifs, make sure you include descriptive and searchable keywords. Keep your channel active by creating new Giphs and promote it on your social media!
