3 Bonus Tips: 

If you've just clicked in from Instagram welcome, welcome; here's the 3 Bonus Tips as promised: 

LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION
Not only is including your location on static instagram pictures proven to increase your reach, but including a location sticker on your Stories instantly adds you to that location timeline and increases your reach. NB You don't have to be physically present at a location to use that geotag, if you're posting travel content for example, tag that location to be seen in those searches by locals and travellers alike. 

ENGAGEMENT TOOLS: 
Use question boxes, polls, quizzes and stickers to increase engagement and audience participation. Results from your questions are content in themselves - but please, please remember to place them properly - I've accidentally voted No so many times it hurts! (Pippa, that dress was stunning btw) 

MIX IT UP: 

Stories should be entertaining, to stop the people swiping past be sure to mix it up. Use photos, videos, include music, post boomerangs and even shares of your own favourite content to stay engaged in the community and relevant to your peers.
