You could show the latest images of your feed or even an updated feed of customers sharing pictures of your product using a hashtag. So here is how you can go about putting an Instagram feed into your website.
WordPress’ extensive library of plugins never fails to disappoint. While there are plenty of Instagram plugins available, they vary in quality. After testing quite a few of them, we’ve found that Instagram Feed WD is simple to use, frequently updated and well supported. All you have to do is to install the plugin and follow the instructions. It has a variety of layouts and styles and if you want even more control over how the feed looks, there is a Pro version for purchase as well.
If you’re not using WordPress for your website, not to worry. LightWidget is a great way to get an Instagram feed onto your website as well. You configure it right from the website and once you’re ready, you just copy and paste the code. Different settings change the way the feed looks, but it is kept simple. The best part about Lightwidget is that it is responsive so it looks great on any device!
If you’re using Website Builder, all you need to do is drag in the ‘Code’ component, and paste in the script and voila! Works like a charm.
