Using Facebook and Instagram Stories

Are you utilizing stories to their fullest potential?


Stories are a great way to get personal with your audience and let them know that you're a person too! They're also great for reaching and connecting with new people. ⠀


Here are my top 4 tips to use stories to their fullest! ⁠⠀


𝐐 𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐀 - Is you account based around a certain niche? Use the Q&A sticker to let people ask you questions about you or what you do and respond them in another story post! ⁠⠀


𝐓𝐡𝐢𝐬 𝐨𝐫 𝐓𝐡𝐚𝐭 - Did you know when using the sticker where people can vote "yes" or "no" that you can change the text? Utilizing that for this or that questions really gets the ball rolling!⁠⠀


𝐒𝐧𝐚𝐩 𝐚 𝐏𝐢𝐜 - Share a pic of your current workspace, project, or something in your personal life (like an animal!) This helps you really connect with your audience.⁠⠀


𝐂𝐮𝐫𝐫𝐞𝐧𝐭𝐥𝐲 𝐑𝐞𝐚𝐝𝐢𝐧𝐠 - Share a quick picture of the book you're currently reading, whether it be the cover or an important paragraph. ⁠⠀


Most importantly, don't forget to use hashtags in your stories! In addition to the hashtag sticker, you can also use another 10 hash tags by adding them in normal text. You can also hide your tags behind images or other elements so they don't clutter the screen.
