The topic of this article is hot to get more views on Instagram Stories. You may be trying your best, posting stories that vary between 5 and 10, or above. You’re trying to make your Instagram active and involved, in order to gain more followers and more views on your Instagram Stories.
But you may be overdoing it though. Think about the stereotype Instagram person people make fun of. The person that cannot stop taking pictures, also the person who always looking for an event so that they can take and post a story. You may be this person. Anywhere you go, Stories are in your mind. But even though you try this hard and always active, always on your phone; you still can’t get the exposure and recognition you want.
5 Steps in Order to Get More Views
Let’s talk about what you can do to get more views on Instagram Stories then.
1) Be Creative, Always
If you want to have loyal followers and viewers on Instagram Stories, you need to start posting creative content. Be brave about this, Instagram Stories are only there for 24 hours. If they won’t like it, you’ll know. If they do, you’ll know. Check out Instagram Analytics to know.
2)Post Consistently, Not Always
As I mentioned at the start of the article, posting stories all the time in a chaotic matter isn’t really going to help you. You need to be consistent, you can use Instagram Insights to see when are your followers most active, or when they’re most likely to see your stories and such. Have a schedule, even if it’s just one day a week, post on that day. If you become a part of people’s routine, you won’t be forgotten. Don’t trade quality for quantity.
3)Use Location Tags
You can be a business owner or an influencer, or just a person who wants popularity on Instagram. In order to get more views on Instagram Stories, using location tags play a big role. It can be an incredible way to increase views, reach and exposure. But why?
This is because Instagram is constantly searching the platform for user-generated content. Instagram loves reposting content that is created by others. Then this content is organized by the location of itself, then this becomes a framework for understanding that specific area. So basically, if you use location tags on your stories, Instagram is going to like you more and besides, people use location hashtags a lot more nowadays. This can also bring your business more clients, so that’s also a plus.
4)Taking Polls & Asking Questions
If you want to know what your audience think of your content, or if you want to know what they want to say to you, or if you want to build a relationship with your audience (this is key for all social media success and even life success) then asking questions and taking polls are the answer.
Let’s say you have a new strategy, new ideas or if you just want to build rapport, then try asking questions. If you wish to get more views on Instagram Stories, -which you should if you’re on that platform- then take polls. People love to be a part of something, you taking polls and asking questions demonstrates that you care about your audience’s opinions. Try this out.
I talked about hashtags on this blog before. Check that post out, but we’ll go over it again briefly. With the latest updates, hashtags evolved. Now you can follow hashtags, and lots of people are doing just that. Because following a hashtag is essentially following a topic/trend you’re interested in. Isn’t that why people usually follow accounts anyway?
For example, you can check #photooftheday or #nowheremagazine and such. When you check these hashtags, you’ll start to see patterns. These communities have loyal and active followers. Honestly, hashtags are so big I’ll make another post on it. Finding small, up and coming communities and being active (not overly active though) there can help greatly to get more views on Instagram Stories. I know, I know. I have to do it though.
