A great way to gain exposure to any Instagram post is to reshare it in your Instagram stories!
So many people spend time swiping through stories these days as opposed to clicking on individual profiles. By sharing your post in your stories, you can send people right to your post and increase engagement.
Even for an experienced Instagram user, it’s not the most obvious thing to figure out. So I created a simple step-by-step to help you get better engagement for every Instagram post by sharing to your Instagram stories!
- Click this icon:
- Then at the top of where you usually see individual people you can share it with, you will see the option to ADD POST TO YOUR STORY:
Instagram will then add the photo to your stories.
But before you share it, decorate the story to encourage your audience to click on it! I like to use gifs and images to do this.
Here are some examples:
I choose to hide parts of my post so I don’t give away all of the content. This way, I hope to encourage people to click the post and explore what’s hidden.
This is a simple and great way to boost your Instagram posts! There are other ways to engage audiences and to drive traffic to posts, but this is something you can easily do with every Instagram post and it doesn’t take much time.
