Increase your reach on Instagram Stories with this tip!
Instagram is a beast to manage and it takes so much time to grow a strong following and an authentic audience. So, that is why I share all of the Instagram tips that I know for a fact work!
I recorded this video originally with the idea in mind to show everyone a great tip for stories to increase reach. But then it turned into a video 5 mins long with a ton of tips.
I’ll go ahead and skip to the meat of the content and share the tip with you:
- Stories can have 10 hashtags per a 15-second story.
- It’s not a guarantee that you’ll rank in those story tags BUT the chances are good if you have great content, strong engagement ratios and choose good tags.
- The thing is though – 10 tags on a story look so cheesy so here is how you blend them –
- Use the color dropper tool.
I’ve tested multiple hashtags on stories a few different ways. While it isn’t a surefire way to get more reach (because it’s never a guarantee that you’ll rank on stories) it works if the hashtags stand out AND if the hashtags are blended with the background.
I even tested this concept with a black background and black text and boom – my story got more views which resulted in more views to my profile!
Check out this video which explains the hashtag color dropper tip and gives you a TON of other tips.
Don’t forget – at the end of the day it’s all about one-on-one conversations.
