Resharing user generated content (content you’re tagged in or that features your products from other Instagram users) is a great way to buff up your Instagram presence. There are a few ways to reshare content on Instagram, but first let me explain some of the best ways to acquire the content in the first place.
Acquiring User Generated Content
Have a Brand Hashtag
Utilize a brand hashtag and ask people to use it on their posts for a chance to be featured.
Ask Past Clients/Customers
Have a strategy in place to email or contact past clients and ask for them to either submit photos or tag you in their posts
BONUS: Having a past customer post a photo of your product is essentially a recommendation from them to their followers and helps expand your exposure in an even more valuable way.
DM/Comment asking for Reshare Permission
If you see a photo of your product or if you were tagged in a post, we always recommend sending a DM or commenting asking for reshare permission.
No matter where you get your user generated content you should always – and I mean always – give the original poster credit.
Now that we’ve gotten that out of the way, here are some of my favorite reshare tools available!

BONUS: If you have non formatted user-generated content that you want to make sure is the right size, I also recommend the app “Squareready”
