How to Make Instagram Stories More Engaging

by Celine Williams Digital Marketing Expert
Instagram Stories feature on Instagram is extremely famous amongst users. It is easy to post anything you want and connect with your followers through stories. They demand less effort in comparison with Instagram posts and simple for use as well. But if you don’t get much views or engagement on your Instagram stories, they are of no use. Hence, it is better to consider the best ways to enhance engagement over there. Let’s have a look at a few crucial ways to make stories more engaging.

1. Post a quiz

Instagram lets you add a quiz widget in your Instagram stories. You get the option to ask any question of your choice and add four different answers. Your followers will have to guess the right answer by selecting any one of the available options. Once they answer, you can check how many of them managed to give the right or wrong answer. It is not necessary to publish a single story with a quiz; you can post a series of stories with a quiz if you want.

2. Conduct a poll

Another great option for engagement in Instagram stories is binary polls. You can place the dedicated poll sticker on the stories with two option and check how many users choose either of them. If you are not able to decide something on your own, polling comes as a handy feature for you. And not to forget it helps make your stories more exciting and engaging as well. Instagram allows you to share the voted results with your followers also.

3. Use Superzoom with pictures

Superzoom is an ideal effect on Instagram stories for adding more drama and excitement. You will get a few dramatic variations like Bounce, Fire, Paparazzing, TV Programme, and more. Also, each of them come with a piece of special background music. For using this feature, you need to focus your phone’s camera on an object and activate the Superzoom filter. It will zoom in and get close to the focused object in any exciting way.

4. Connect with your followers through Q&A session

Your Instagram followers will be encouraged to ask you questions through the Q&A widget. Once your followers ask you a particular question through the Q&A widget, you can choose to answer them through a private message or repost the asked question and your answer through Q&A widget. For adding the Q&A sticker, you will have to go to the new story section, set the background, tap on the Stickers button, select the Questions option, provide the topic of discussion, and tap the Send option. You followers can ask you questions if they want once the Instagram story goes live. Swipe up on your set story to see the achieved responses.

5. Use Instagram’s Music feature to find people of the same music taste

Instagram’s Music feature is great for spicing up your Instagram stories too. You can easily attach through various sources, including Spotify, and connect with your dedicated Instagram story. When it comes to categories for selecting tracks, there are three -Popular, Moods, and Genres. Even, you have the option to crop the chosen song and include the desired part of the song only. Instagram’s Music tool can be added through two ways – one by importing the song in the form of a sticker and the other by using the particular Music mode.

6. Make your stories exciting by featuring spontaneous action through Boomerang

Boomerang helps increase engagements also. It keeps a clip playing back and forth for a while and makes any moment look exciting. You can record a clip of seconds and use the Boomerang. For using this feature, launch a new story and keep swiping on the left till you get to see the Boomerang option. Tap the capture button to start recording a short clip and use the Boomerang effect. It is easy to add additional text, stickers, or more once your story is entirely ready.

So, these are the best methods for engaging your followers and making your Instagram stories more interesting!
