This the easiest way to make a GIF for Instagram. It will take you less than two minutes, I swear!

In this post, I'll walk you through how to make a GIF for Instagram step-by-step. Read on to find out how to create a GIF of yourself dancing, pointing, doing the "swipe up" motion, etc. to add a personal touch to your Instagram Stories and reinforce your brand.

Why does this matter? Well, instead of using GIF's of strangers, you can make a GIF of yourself doing an action and use it to further connect with your followers. The more they see you, the better!

Here's how to make a GIF for Instagram, step-by-step:

  1. Open Instagram Stories and click on this button to get to your stickers.

  2. Choose the "Selfie" sticker. It looks like this.

  3. Hit the "Boomerang" button and record yourself doing an action.

  4. Hit "save" to add your new GIF to the "Saved Stickers" section.

  5. Click on any of your "Saved Stickers" to add to your current Instagram Story.

It's that simple! Now you can reinforce your brand with GIF's of yourself instead of using random people you and your followers don't know doing the shimmy.
