Instagram has become a very simple yet powerful app for businesses to take advantage of. Having your Instagram photos displayed on your blog or website’s sidebar is a great way to add a personal touch or different approach to advertising.
There is a great website that can help you get this set up quickly and easily (compared to other plug-ins that make it really difficult) called Webstagram.
Once there, the first step is to click on the red Log In button. Log into your Instagram account. You will then click on the Tools tab to get started.
Scroll down to the second tool listed which is Instagram Gallery for Your Blog/Website.
Type in your username and change any settings you want. If you are not sure about the settings, I recommend just leaving them as is for now. Click on the Preview button to see how it looks and if you are happy with it then click on the Generate Code button.
A box will pop up and you will just copy/paste this code into a text widget on your dashboard.
If you have a WordPress blog like I do then you will be doing so via the Dashboard>Widgets>Text. Copy and paste the code from Webstagram into the text box and save. You should be able to visit your site and see your new widget.
If it looks great, then you are done! If you need to change the size or layout of the images then go back to Webstagram and do so. Just remember to generate the new code and copy and paste it to your text widget.
