How to Get the SWIPE UP Feature WITHOUT 10K Followers (Step By Step HACK!)

How to Get the SWIPE UP Feature WITHOUT 10K Followers (Step By Step HACK!)


What’s up everyone? Welcome back to my channel. Now, how many of you have a goal of reaching
10,000 followers on Instagram? Not 20, not 30, and not 50 and not even 100,
but 10. Trust me, I used to be there. I really wanted to have 10,000 followers in
order to unlock this Swipe Up feature. Now, what if I told you that you actually
don’t need to have 10k followers in order to have a swipe up feature? Yes, you heard me right. That’s why I created this video. Because today, I’m going to teach you how
you can have the Swipe Up feature without 10,000 followers. You could have 100, you could have 500, you
could have 5000. Regardless of your follower account, if you
have less than 10,000, I’m going to teach you how you can have the Swipe Up feature
in your Instagram stories. So if you’re interested in learning, then
keep on watching. Now, if you are someone who wants to drive
traffic to your external links such as your YouTube videos, your landing pages, so on
and so forth. The way that you can do it without having
10,000 followers and without having a business account is leveraging IG TV. So for the purpose of this video, let’s use
a YouTuber as an example. So, let’s say you are a YouTuber who needs
to drive traffic to your videos week after week through Instagram story. Now, this is what you need to do step by step. And keep in mind, even if you aren’t a YouTuber,
this will still apply to you and your business. Now, the first step that you want to make
sure you do is that you have an IGTV account. And right here, I’m going to show you exactly
where you can find the IGTV function. Next, what you want to do after you’ve created
your IGTV channel, is you want to create a 15 second clip of you shouting out instructions
on how someone can actually find your video. And in a second, I’m going to explain why
this is important. But for now, let me show you an example. What’s up guys, so you’re here because you
want to watch my new video about how you can unlock the Swipe Up feature, right? Well, make sure you click on this title right
here in order to be directed to that video. I promise this video is going to blow your
mind. So, make sure you click on that button right
here, that title, and that’s going to direct you to that video. Enjoy guys. Now what you guys would have noticed while
I was filming that clip is that, I was constantly pointing to the right hand side. And again, in a second, this will make a lot
of sense to you. However, before we hop on to the next step
where everything will make more sense, let me show you the second option of how you can
do this as well. Now what I’m going to do is, I’m going to
share my screen and walk you through a tutorial on the second option that you can do in order
to create your 15 second clip. All right, guys. So, I’m going to show you how you can create
a 15 second static clip, so you don’t have to record a video and also to make your clip
a little bit more fancier. So what you want to do is, you want to go
on canva.com, and in here, you want to type in Instagram story to make sure you’ve got
the right dimensions. All right, so now that you are on the Instagram
story template within Canva, what you now want to do is choose your template or you
can custom create one, but since I’m lazy, I’m just going to choose one right here. So, let’s say I choose this one. Now, what I can potentially do is a new video. Now, what’s really important here is that,
I’m adding a call to action on the left hand side with an arrow clearly pointing upwards. And again, later on in this video, you’re
going to understand exactly why. But basically, what you’re going to do is,
you’re going to create this static image and you can decorate it the way that you want
with your branding, with your messaging, with whatever you want to have. Now, just make sure that you have this call
to action on the left hand side that points upwards and says, click here to watch. Then what you’re going to do is, you’re going
to download as a PNG file. Now what you want to do is, you want to add
the picture within your video editor. In my case, I use a Final Cut Pro, but I’m
sure you could do the same on iMovie. And then, you want to make your clip 15 seconds
long. And the reason why we’re doing 15 seconds
is because that is the minimum that Instagram will allow you to upload on IGTV story. And there you go, this is a 15 second static
clip that you’re going to have and that you’re going to be able to upload into IGTV. Now after you’ve created your 15 second clip,
whether it’s an active live video, or it’s a static video, what you want to do is you
want to then upload that clip into your IGTV. I’m going to share my screen and put it right
here to show you step by step how to do it. Now first of all, you’re going to click on
your channel, and then you’re going to choose that clip. In my case, my clip was 22 seconds. It’s totally fine. However, you need to know that on IGTV, the
minimum is 15 seconds. Once you click Next, you then want to add
your title. Now this is going to be really important because,
specifically what you want your title to be is something like, Click here to open with
an arrow emoji pointing down. And again, in a second guys, it will all make
sense. Then in the description, you want to paste
the link of your video or whatever external link or website that you want to drive traffic
to. So in my case, let’s say it’s my YouTube video,
but for now, we’ll just use my youtube channel as an example. Now after you’ve done that, you then want
to post your video. Now it’s time for everything to come in full
circle. So, all the steps that I mentioned that are
pointing to the right, the specific title will now make sense. So in a second, I’m going to show you the
exact clip from my IGTV. What’s up guys, so you’re here because you
want to watch my new video about how you can unlock the Swipe Up feature, right? Well, make sure that you click on this title
right here in order to be directed to that video. I promise this video is going to blow your
mind. So, make sure you click on that button right
here and that title, and that’s going to direct you to that video. Enjoy guys. Pretty cool, right? And makes a lot of sense now of why you need
to be pointing to the right and have that clear call to action for someone to open that
link. Now, what your next step now is going to be
is putting it into your Instagram story. So now, I’m going to share my screen and show
you exactly what you should be expecting. Now then, I’ll right Swipe Up for my new video,
let’s say. Then what you want to do is you want to click
the link, and you’re going to have a call to action where you’re going to be able to
add your IGTV video. Now once you click that, your video should
be available, so that then you’ll be able to link that into your Instagram story. Now once that’s linked, you can then post
it. And now, when someone goes into your story,
they’re going to be able to Swipe Up to watch the video, and then also follow your prompts
and click on the link that you want to direct them to. Now obviously, this is more steps than your
typical 10k business account Swipe Up feature. However, if you are someone who constantly
on a weekly basis needs to drive traffic to your external links, then this is a great
option to create a really good user experience for your followers instead of directing them
into your link in your bio. This is also a really great opportunity for
you to have more interactions with your audience through IGTV. Now, if you are watching this video the day
that it was published, make sure to not forget that early bird ends very soon for my program,
THE BOSSGRAM ACADEMY. Without me saying too much, I’ll leave the
links in the comments section below and in the description box in order for you to see
if whether The BOSSGRAM ACADEMY is a good fit for you. Now, if you want to learn more about how you
can grow on Instagram, social media and business in general, I highly recommend you also check
out these two videos. As always guys, I hope you guys have a great
day, a great week and a great life and I’ll see you in the next one. Bye, guys.

  1. UPDATE: IGTV changed from 15 sec to 1 minute. Simply just loop your video or make a static CTA for longer.

    READ THIS FIRST: you have to upload your IGTV story FIRST AND THEN the link to connect to IGTV comes up. You also CANNOT SEE the swipe up on your own account – this is the SAME with the regular 10k swipe up. Go ask a friend or create a dummy account to test if your swipe up actually worked.

  2. Thanks for this information. I had been reliying on the link in bio method for a long time. Now im going to give this method a try.

  3. Did IG change the standard IGTV time to 1 min.. because I’m getting a message that 15 seconds isn’t long enough😫🤦🏽‍♀️

  4. Contact @software_team via instagram for instagram hacking, verification and increase followers. He helped me verify my account. He is one of the reliable and best hackers yet. Very effective and charges way less

  5. Hello Vanessa – I tried this feature but it seems like IGTV has a minimum of 1 minute to upload IGTV vids now rather than 15s now. I wanted to double check to make sure this is true? Thanks in advance!

  6. Vanessa Vanessa Vanessa… Thank You much! I've been following so many social media coach s but I've not yet gained any good inputs from anyone, also their videos are so long explaining blah bleeh blooh… But you're awesome girl!!!

  11. Thank you so much for this video! It was super useful. Can't wait to try it out to promote my yoga retreats in Portugal and new blog posts! Namasté.

  12. Thanks for the tips. I just did it today and it works perfectly. The only thing I’ll add is now the minimum length for the IG TV video is no longer 15 seconds but 60 seconds. That’s the only change. By the way Sunny sent me.

  13. IGTV keeps telling me that i need to upload from 1 to 15 minutes? and i did a static clip of 15 seconds like you said in your video LOL huh? WAT!!!! someone has the answer to my question 😉

  14. I think it’s ridiculous you can’t do swipe ups without 10k that’s really frustrating for smaller brands and businesses smh lol thanks for the tips!!

  15. Super helpful video, thank you so much! A quick update for everyone in the comments, the IGTV requirement is now 1 minute.

  16. I came here thinking there might be an excellent alternative to unlocking this feature, but there isn't. I enjoyed the first section, but then afterward, I realized that it wasn't meant for me. I'll open it the natural way with hard work and putting quality content. Thanks for the advice, I hope all goes well with you.
