Looking how to increase your Instagram story views? Here is our top 3 tips you can start doing now to increase your views. We recommend having your profile set to public, but isn’t required.

Let’s begin.  

TIP #1 – Post to Stories 4 times a Day

That’s right, just post 4 times a day. Try spreading the post apart. 10am – 2pm – 5pm – 11pm. Play around with those time slots and see what works best for your account. The sweet spot is when you get the most dms, likes, comments and engagement.  

Perfecting timing…

8am (when people wake up) | 12pm (when people have lunch) | 5pm (when people leave work) | 9pm (before people go to sleep)

TIP #2 – Create a Poll

Engagement is key when using social media and people love to provide feedback on topics they can relate to.  It’s important to not only ask the right questions, but also let your audience know you’re listening. Once your poll is complete (after 24 hours), don’t forget to share the results!

TIP #3 – Tag your Location

Tagging your location increases you chances on getting on a location story board, which allows the entire Instagram community to see your story. Tag popular places like- Restaurants, Clubs, Stores, Parks.. ect. 

How to add a location sticker to your Instagram Story.

  1. Add a picture or a video you want to post on your story.
  2. Tap on the sticker icon.
  3. Choose the location sticker from the menu.
  4. Enter your location

Bonus Tip:  #HASHTAGS

When you add an Instagram #hashtag to the story, it becomes searchable from the Search & Explore page. So, if someone is looking up the hashtag, they might see your story in the Stories queue at the top of the page.

FUN FACT – You can only use 30 hashtags per feed post.
