Instagram stories are a great way to get connected with your followers. Stories can be used for a variety of purposes. You can use stories to connect with your followers, ask questions, promote something and even just have some fun with your followers.
While the content in form of stories does offer great versatility, it is also important to keep in mind it is only useful if the story is engaging. So, let’s look at some ways you can make your Instagram stories shine from the rest.
1. Keep it short and Keep it simple
The rise in popularity of short-form content shows us that people like content that is short and crisp. People on social media have a very short attention span, and if you drag something out, they will lose interest fast.
So, the best thing to do in this case is to keep your content short. If your story is an image, then you are already halfway there as those only remain on the screen for a few seconds. If your story is a video, it gets broken down into short clips. So, it's especially important in the case of your video that it is small and doesn’t get broken up a lot. That way your message or call to action just doesn’t get skipped because you were dragging your messaging.
2. Know your target audience
3. Make your stories engaging with stickers
Stickers are your best friend when it comes to making a good Instagram story. You can use stickers to convey your feelings, ask a question and even highlight important information in a fun way. Learning what stickers work and what don’t is very important for making engaging Insta stories.
