How to host an Instagram Takeover in simple steps

What is an Instagram Takeover?
short: You’ll take over our Instagram Stories for a day.
long version: An Instagram takeover is the process of taking over someone else’s Instagram account temporarily and sharing content with their audience. With a takeover, the host gets someone who can bring value to their followers while the guest gets to reach a new audience with their content. In most cases, it’s a win-win situation.

Step 1
First you obviously need the Instagram app. If you don’t have the app yet, then you’ll have to download it first. The username is: ‘baroegrotterdam’. You got the password from Francis. If you are logged in go to the Instagram page of Baroeg, click on the little icon ‘Insta take over’ in our Highlights (see image below). When you have clicked on this icon you can see how other bands have done an Instagram take over. Bands like Omnium Gatherum, Marche Funèbre, Witchsorrow, Pene Corrida and Façade have done it too.

Step 2
What could you post on Instagram? To give an example you could post the backstage, soundcheck, the moment you are all on the bus together/traveling, etc. It’s cool for the fans to see what the band that they like is doing the whole day before and after a performance. That’s it! Thank you very much for doing this and have fun!

Step 3
How does it work?
