How Brands Get Benefited With Instagram Stories?

Posted February 21, 2018 by Abhishek Pandey @ 7:06 am

While designing ads, a marketer should always make sure that the ads will catch eyes of their targeted audiences. As we all know that social media plays a vital role in catching eyeballs and ever since Instagram launched Stories in 2016, the feature spread like wildfire. In November 2017, Instagram Stories topped 300 million daily users. Instagram Stories offer social marketers a great opportunity to reach a higher number of people by taking advantage of one of the fastest-growing social networks.

According to the reports, Instagram Stories have encouraged users to stay on the platform for a longer period and visit it more frequently. Users under 25 spend more than 32 minutes per day on Instagram, while those in the older age groups spend more than 24 minutes a day on the Facebook-owned photo- and video-sharing network. As a marketer, you have very less time to show your product or service to the users while making sure that your story covers all that you want to show your targeted audiences. So how would you want them to see in your product? Here is how you can get started:

Take advantage of interactive polls

Last October, Instagram launched a feature that allows users to add interactive polls to their Stories. These polls are a fun, frictionless way to get your audience engaged and hear their thoughts on any and all topics. According to the recent report, influencers and brands alike have seen a boost in Instagram Live and Stories engagement using interactive polls since the feature’s inception. With the help of Instagram Insights, you can track engagement per post or entire feed activity per time period.

Value of Instagram Takeovers

Instagram takeovers are fast, easy and fun ways to grow your following by building a mutually beneficial relationship between you and another influencer for a 24-hour period. It provides a great avenue for expanding your audience. Imagine the possibilities. For your business, you can choose any employee for a “day in the life” story or your partner to swap stories for the day. This will keep your customers to keep coming back to your Stories.

Use Instagram Story Ads

In January 2017, Instagram had launched its Stories ads feature with big brands like Nike, Netflix, and Airbnb. However, it opened the feature for all businesses including small and big by March. When designing your ads, it is important to catch your targeted audiences’ eyes instantly as photo ads last only for 10 seconds, while video ads last for 15 seconds. Therefore, you have to ensure that they get the message in the first few seconds of your ad so that they can decide to take action immediately after. If you are planning to try a photo ad, make sure to use a bright, bold photo with clear branding and simple messaging in order to give a clear message about your brand to the user before the ad runs out.

Instant Take on Insta Stories

Insta Stories are relatively new medium across all social media platforms, so there’s no better time than now to begin capitalizing on all they offer. This year, include some Insta Stories to your social media marketing strategy to get a good boost in the business.
