We all know it: stories are the cool kid on the block, and there is only one way to keep it interesting – keep it fresh.
From the newly launched AR Studio to the upcoming donation sticker, there are plenty of ways for you to engage with your audience using Instagram Stories. Aside from the content itself – which can be a mix of candid shots, graphics, and video content – stickers are a fun and powerful way to use your stories.
Here are some ideas about how to use them for yourself and make your stories fun for others (and for yourself too!)
If you are looking to get some feedback from your audience about anything from content direction to product development, polls are a great way to put your audience in charge.
A simple multiple choice goes a long way, and makes market research fun!
Are you planning a live Q&A, or to have a heart to heart with your followers? The question sticker is a very fun and intuitive one to use. Most influencers use them to host weekly Q&As, but can also be used to answer questions about upcoming courses or products.
When you view your own story and swipe up, you can see who responded. Tap a response from someone to share it. Keep in mind that when you share someone’s question or song, their photo and username won’t be shown.
These are a very fun way to show some appreciation, and more than anything allow your followers to share the love and relate to your content. Will give a heart emoji to that one.
Looking to host a giveaway? Gamify your Gram? Quiz stickers are all the rage nowadays – announce your upcoming quiz a few days ahead and offer an incentive for your followers to play!
People can respond to your quiz by tapping an option you’ve provided. Once published, your followers can vote and learn whether they got it right. When you view your story and swipe up, you can see how many votes each option received and how each person voted.
Are you hosting a webinar or event? Are you launching a new exciting product? Countdowns are fun, handy AND your followers get notified when the countdown ends (hooray!)
It takes some fun and playfulness to give your stories a revamp, but using stickers can help make them fun, engaging and help you let your hair down a little.
