There's no doubt that within the past year video has become one of social media's most effective forms of digital marketing.
Last week @Instagram announced that they would be merging IGTV and feed videos into one format: ✨ Instagram Video. ✨
They are also introducing a new video tab on profiles, where this new combined video format will live in order make it easier for users to discover new video content.
The Instagram Business team states below "We love that our creator community has embraced video as a key format to tell their stories, entertain, and connect with their audiences, and that’s why we want to make it even simpler to create and discover videos on Instagram."
This new video format is meant to make the process of uploading and discovering videos easier, allow users to discover new ways of viewing and analyzing video content and increase the chances of video ads reaching new audiences. 👥

Instagram has begun testing a new feature called, ‘Selected People’ that will enable users to select specific profiles that will be able to view their Stories. 📲
'Selected People' is essentially a variation of Instagram’s current ‘Close Friends’ option, which enables users to make a list of their key contacts for sharing Stories, the main difference between the two is that this new feature will provide users with more control and the extra capacity to easily change their selected list of viewers every time they post. 🤳🏼

In celebration of Red Toque Creative's 7 year anniversary, we'd like to take a moment to introduce ourselves to any of our new followers who may not know our story. ⬇️
Red Toque Creative founder, Kelsey Wood, didn't plan on starting her own digital marketing agency. She had spent the majority of her working life in customer service, sales, and marketing roles for other companies. However, as the daughter of two business-owners, she had always had a passion for entrepreneurship and bringing people together. 💫
During university, Kelsey seized the opportunity to professionally manage the online presence of a few community organizations and local businesses. She never imagined that this would stem into a full-blown business. But that’s exactly what happened. As the Red Toque Creative clientele grew, so did the need for a bigger team. 👥
Around this time, Kelsey and her now husband Nick made the decision to move from Vancouver to the Comox Valley to be closer to family and farther from city life. 🏠
With that decision came Diana Wood and Yolanda Holderness, the first additional team members to join Red Toque Creative back in 2017. 🤝
The team continues to grow, with new, talented individuals who share our passion of helping others build their brands, connect with their audiences and share their stories! 🙌
