Clever video producers can now craft more elaborate mini videos and post them to Instagram to reach their target market. In March 2016, Instagram increased from 15 seconds to 60 seconds the ability for consumers and marketers to post videos for free to their social media platform feed!

While it took several hours and a bit of trial and error to learn how to post 60-second videos to Instagram in the correct compressed format, this Omaha marketing consultant has found an easy way to do it.

First off, make sure you render your :60 second video to MP4 format in your the editing software of choice. When complete, upload the 60 second video to Google Drive.
