Are you guys using Instagram stories yet? If not, where have you been?!
Instagram stories launched about a year and a half ago and kind of took the world by storm. They’re very similar to Snapchat stories: whatever you post disappears within 24 hours unless-and here’s a recently released feature-you ‘save’ them to your profile. Last summer, Instagram stories turned 1 year old and their daily usage has now surpassed Snapchat. In other words, they’re kinda a big deal.
With so many people using Instagram stories, you don’t want to miss out. It’s a great way to get your content seen by a large following. You can use the Instagram story platform to:
- Announce a new product or service
- Showcase your latest work
- Publicize a new blog post
- Post an inspiring quote or testimonial
- Offer exclusive tips & tricks
- Make an announcement
- Provide a special offer or discount
- Show behind-the-scenes shots
- “Break the ice” & introduce yourself
- Much more!
The possibilities really are endless! Of course, how you choose to use the Instagram story platform is going to be dependent on your brand or business.
