Considering Instagram does not allow for desktop uploads, you might think uploading your freshly-made Promo video ad to Instagram is impossible. But, that couldn't be further from the truth. This simple guide will walk you through all the steps for uploading your video in minutes. 

Step One:
Download your great, new video to your desktop computer. Once you have the file on your computer, you can choose one of three methods to use in order to transfer it to mobile: 

  1. Email the video file to yourself.

  2. Transfer the file from your desktop to your mobile device using a cable.

  3. Upload the video file to a file sharing app like Dropbox, Google Drive, or AirDrop for iOS users. 

Step Two:
Open the email with the video and save the video to your phone, either to your Camera Roll or Photo Album.

Step Three:
Open your Instagram account on the mobile device where you saved your video. Upload your video directly from your device by clicking the "Camera" button at the bottom of the screen. Go to the "Gallery" option and then upload the Promo video file saved in your device.
