Instagram Stories – Social Media’s Underutilized Tool
Did you know, more than 300 million people are watching Instagram Stories every day, and they are insanely underutilized by most small business owners? You know is true because you probably are one of those 300 Mill.
INSTAGRAM STORIES HAS BEEN A GAME CHANGER!
However, one thing is to watch them, and another is to know how to use them creatively and strategically for your brand.
I hear my clients say all the time:
“I am not creative enough” or
“ what do I post that makes sense with my audience?” or
“ How can I make them look engaging?” or
“How can I make them look cool.” or
“How can they impact my business?”
And the best one:
“ How will stories translate to sales?”
We are all creative enough, but we just don’t practice. Or perhaps since we don’t know what to post we become inconsistent (number one killer of any marketing effort). However, if your audience is watching, then you have a golden opportunity to connect with them, provide them with daily value, build trust, and just hang where they are.
How? You just need a little guidance.
