Instagram Stories (and how to make your own in 5 minutes!)

Instagram Stories are great, especially for businesses trying to build brand awareness, grow an engaged following and create meaningful relationships. That is, to get a target audience to know, like and trust you.

And they’re easy to do!

Stories are just another way to share your content on Instagram. They’re made up of photos and/or video clips (15 seconds max.) and show in 9:16 portrait-style.

The fun part? They can be jazzed-up with filters, text and stickers, as well as engagement tools to help new people discover your content. And unlike regular posts, they reside outside your Gallery and disappear after 24-hours, unless they’re Archived or saved to your Highlights.
