Here are 9 ways that you can level-up your Instagram strategy and increase Instagram engagement in 2019:
Tip #1 : Start Conversations with Instagram Stories Stickers
In 2019, it’s time to reframe how you think about Instagram engagement.
Instagram engagement is no longer just likes and comments, it also includes engagement from your stories, people following your brand hashtag, IGTV views, and more.
While organic reach on Instagram declines as more users are following more accounts, Instagram Stories is only growing, with over 400 million people posting or watching stories every day.
Because of this, Instagram has been innovating by finding new ways for brands to engage with their followers, in the form of different engagement stickers for stories.
Instagram Stories stickers are a great way to encourage your followers to chat and share their opinions and experiences with you, which, in turn, will help create a loyal following that feels connected to your brand.
Here are a few ways you can get started with stickers to increase Instagram engagement:
The Question Sticker:
Nothing sparks conversation more than a good AMA (Ask Me Anything) on Instagram Stories. And while influencers have been known to use the Instagram Stories question sticker to help their followers get to know them more, there’s no reason why you can’t do the same for your business.
It’s a great opportunity for your followers to get to know your brand better, or get more information about your products.
On the flipside, it’s a great place for you to ask your followers some questions. You could spark a conversation about your next season’s color palette, or what product lines they’d like to see more of. It’s engagement, conversation, and customer feedback all wrapped up in one great post!
Poll and Vote Stickers:
Your followers’ opinions matter, and if you want to hear more from your audience while boosting your engagement, you need to start using poll or vote stickers!
