Willa Mae Lane was born April 13, 1919, the ninth of ten children of Ella and Benjamin King. As a little girl, she loved to dance and dreamed of being a professional dancer. Her brothers and sisters hated her because of her fair skin color, as she refused to work in the cotton fields with them.

Her life as a child was lonely. She often thought she was adopted, but the likeness of her and her mother proved her wrong. On her journey to fame, she moved to Cincinnati, to begin a new life. This prepared her for what was to become a great career in singing and dancing. As she finally found happiness with her sister and the family they lived with.

During her solo career as singing and dancing, she got a big break working with Lionel Hampton. This open the doors for her working all the famous clubs of her time, “COTTON CLUB” AND “APOLLO!” This marked her career to working with some of the great entertainers of the thirties. CAB CALLAWAY, LIONEL HAMPTON, FAT DIMIONS just to name a few!

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.

For their part, brands have responded to the channel’s popularity by posting an average of 2.5 Instagram Stories a week. Also, 4 million brands are advertisers on Stories, as of January 2020. And given the state of the world, it’s very possible those numbers will go up in 2020.

Whether you’re just getting started or looking to master the latest subtleties, we’ve got the complete rundown on best practices for this format.

Download your free pack of 20 customizable Instagram Stories templates now. Save time and look professional while promoting your brand in style.

How to use Instagram Stories

Instagram Stories—a camera-first fullscreen visual format that disappears after 24 hours, modelled after Snapchat—doesn’t show up in the Instagram news feed. This means that users can post easily and rapidly to their followers without worrying about overloading them.

Also, compared to the polished reputation of the Instagram aesthetic, the vibe is definitely a little more rough around the edges. This is good news for novices: diving in doesn’t require hiring a videographer. Even billion-dollar companies are posting iPhone videos of office dogs.

Here are some quick tutorials to help you dip your toes in.
