WHY SHOULD YOU USE INSTAGRAM STORIES?
♡ It creates a more personal connection with your audience.
♡ It boosts your engagement!
♡ Instagram users are watching IG TV and IG Stories more than they are scrolling through their feed.
1. DAILY ROUTINES
People LOVE watching daily routines. There’s just something about watching how someone else spends their day that is just MOTIVATING.
It’s a great way to get your Instagram stories audience involved. You can even create your own HASHTAG for the challenge. Whenever your audience posts about the challenge in their Instagram stories or feed they can connect with you through the hashtag!!
You can get as creative as you want with your challenges!
People love tutorials! We always want to learn something new! Your audience will appreciate you for teaching them something you know! Think about your niche, what is it that you know a lot about that you can teach your audience?
Okay, we might not always be able to afford everything that is shown in a haul, BUT they are still fun to watch! If you don’t know what a haul is, it’s basically showing your audience what you spent your money on shopping!
5. ADVICE / CHATS
Ask your audience what they need advice on! Then talk to them in a video answering their advice. You can also do an Instagram live where your audience will tune in and ask you advice while you're live! It can be a lot of fun, and it makes your audience feel that personal connection!
6. PRODUCT OBSESSIONS
Hop on to your Instagram stories and let your audience know what products you have been obsessed with! If you have over 10k followers and you are a business Instagram account this is a great way to link to your affiliate products as well! That way your audience can purchase your favorite products and you can get a commission!
Only talk about products you are truly obsessed with.
7. BITS OF DAILY LIFE
Like I said earlier, people LOVE watching other people live their lives. Feel free to show random bits of your daily life!
8. QUESTION AND ANSWERS
Ask your audience in your Instagram stories to send you questions to answer. You can answer them simply by responding in a video or respond to the questions in an Instagram live! I find this is a great way to get your audience to engage.
9. DAILY INSPIRATION/ AFFIRMATIONS
You can check in on your Instagram stories daily with motivational quotes or affirmations to help your audience start their day on a positive note!
10. RECIPES / COOKING
People do love to watch and learn new recipes when they can! If you are a good cook or can bake, show that off on your Instagram stories!
