How to Use Instagram Stories to Build Your Audience
How do you know when you’re using Instagram Stories like a professional? The short answer is: you’ll see it in your analytics.
For the long answer, read on.
But first: why develop an Instagram Stories strategy at all? Well, it’s the statistics. About half of Instagram’s monthly users are using Stories. That’s 500 million people posting 1 billion Stories every day. And about 62% of those people say they’ve become more interested in a brand or product after seeing it in their Stories.
