Planning your Instagram stories in advance can save you a lot of trouble in the last minute as you don’t have to think how and what should you post and you will be able to keep a track of how every story performed.

Make your stories engaging i.e. according to later.com your story should have a beginning middle and an end which keeps your viewers engaged on your stories and doesn’t let them bounce.

A great example would be behind the scenes and for doctors, it could be a quick patient testimonial followed by your video explaining that testimonial, etc.

Pick a format

If you use Instagram then you must be aware of what is a format and how it helps brands.

There are a number of brands that only use specific color and font whenever they make their story and that is what builds their brand recognition over te as when people see it elsewhere they immediately recognize that brand.

Use the color palette given by Instagram for choosing a brand color for your brand.

Do what works

If you are promoting your brand on Instagram then you must be having a business account and you might have analytics of stories and your post as well.

Use that Analytics for figuring out what works and what doesn’t as every person is the same and that’s why your audience can be different as well from someone so tries experimenting with different content types ex behind the scenes, tips, giveaways, etc.

Well maybe yes if you are trying to land on Mars but it is not true as there are people doing the same thing as you or we can say people might be having your audience.

Like for doctors other doctors and hospitals Instagram can be very beneficial for you if you collaborate with them for creating content and eventually use their following to build your brand.

Pro tip: Use hashtags in Instagram stories so that you can increase your reach and hence engagement etc. You can blend the hashtags with the background only so that it is not visible like in this post.

Schedule your Instagram stories

Instagram stories can be a burden when not done properly because posting at least three storied a day about your business which resonates with your audience and your brand is recalled by it can be a bit challenging.

Hence you should schedule your Instagram stories in advance so that you have them in buffer and you can have te think something good rather than fulfilling your daily quota.

Repost your UGC

You are not a business if you don’t have customers and if your product or service is good enough you will receive a ton of testimonials and review.
