More than 300 million Instagram users are viewing Instagram Stories every day! With over 30% of those Stories coming from businesses, it’s no longer a secret that Instagram Stories has become an important advertising tool for businesses. In this blog post, we’re breaking down some content ideas in order to gain more Instagram followers!
Use Instagram Story Highlights as a quick way to introduce your brand
When potential new followers first get on your Instagram profile, they will look up for what your company is, what it does and more importantly: what it has to provide to its clients. You could easily use the Instagram Bio on your profile to quickly clear that out – but every company on Instagram already does that. And in a world with more start-ups than ever measured before, the importance of standing out from the crowd has gotten enormous.
By using the Highlight function, your company is able to explain what your business does in an original, creative and eye-catching way! You will attract visitors to hit that follow button!
Use Instagram polls for doing research!
Instagram recently released ‘Instagram Polls’ which makes you able to set up polls in your Instagram Stories! Polls are a great tool to engage your audience, but also to use them for audience research in order to create better content for your followers. Instead of just asking your followers question to just entertain them, you should find out what kind of posts your followers like the best and what they want to see more of!
Use Instagram templates
A handy tool for your company to show who they truly are and what their vision is could be templates! They will definitely help you to stand out from the crowd! You can easily screenshot templates from fellow Instagram accounts but if you want to easily create them online you could check out ‘Easil’ for instance. We suggest you make your own custom templates where your company’s logo is visible on. Ask your followers to screenshot them and fill them in – it will definitely boost your followers and most importantly your brand awareness!
