INVOLVE YOUR AUDIENCE:
Through stories we are able to engage with our audience through interactive features available on Instagram. Creating polls, quizzes, and questions allows you to connect with your audience in a more personal way, creating a conversation that centres around the questions that your audience wants to ask you. Polls allow your community to express their likes and dislikes, in regards to content, experiences, or products, creating a perfect platform for your brand to adapt and change to create content that really speaks to your followers.
CAPTURING YOUR AUDIENCE:
For content that will disappear in 24 hours, creating images that show a behind-the-scenes or ‘unfiltered’ version of your business (make sure that content is still fire though) is a perfect way for your audience to see what it is like to be a significant part of your brand experience. Showing authentic moments from your day-to-day hustle, to tutorials on how to use your product, can allow your audience to immerse themselves in your brand, and create a pretty ironclad loyalty and love for your business.
