  • Once you’ve created your shoutout, select the blue ‘Shareto Instagram Stories’ button under the image and a pop-up will show asking you to allow Ampjar to access your photos.
  • Choose your preference from ‘Select Photos’ or Allow Access to All Photos’ which will enable your shoutout to be saved to your Instagram image gallery. (Note: It’s entirely up to you which level of access you choose, but if you choose ‘Don’t Allow’ then your shoutout can’t be saved to your gallery).
  • You’ll then be redirected to your shoutout in Instagram and it’s here you’ll need to add the following things:
    • Include some text with a positive message about why you’re sharing this particular brand or image to provide context to your followers. E.g. What is it you love about this small business or the product they sell?
    • Tag the brand using the @mention sticker which will notify them so they’ll know you’ve shouted them out.
    • Add the link sticker? which will enable your followers to visit their website/Insta and check them out AND importantly, adding the link sticker enables us to track your shoutout and reward you with karma!
