4 Instagram Story tips for your business page

Digital Marketers and Content Creators are always searching for the latest hacks or tips for more visibility on Instagram, sometimes you'll even have to pay to learn these things but here you are getting free tips from us 😋. Don't worry we got you. Read below: 
Add a link to Instagram Stories

Adding links to your Instagram Stories is a guaranteed way to increase your conversions, boost organic engagement, and make it easier for your followers to access the content you want to share.

Here’s the catch when it comes to Instagram’s Swipe Up feature: There are certain requirements you need to meet before you’ll have access to it.

To use the Instagram swipe up feature you must:

  • Have your profile set up as a Business Profile, and
  • Have over 10,000 followers


  • Have a verified account (The blue check next to a profile that means Instagram has confirmed that an account is the authentic account of the public entity the account represents).

Start Creating Instagram Reels

Instagram’s new Reels feature is clearly an attempt to get in on the TikTok action, but it works, and that’s all that matters.

Create a 15-second multi-clip video with music, special effects, and stickers and wow your followers with the other Instagram Story hacks you got up your sleeve. 

You can share Reels on your Stories, but they’ll appear on the Explore page as well, so you can impress even more folks with your Story skills.

By incorporating more video content into your content strategy, you’re almost guaranteed to increase engagement on your Instagram profile.

But creating video doesn’t need to feel daunting — in fact, video content can be really easy to make and can drive a lot of attention and engagement to your Instagram account. 

Use Instagram Story Highlights

Instagram Story Highlights are collections of pictures, videos, and posts that you’ve posted to your Instagram Story in the past.

And even though Stories disappear after 24 hours, Instagram Story Highlights live permanently on your profile, allowing you to add or delete content from them at any time.

That means you can still highlight specific Stories and continue to share some of your most engaging content on Instagram. Think of it as your evergreen Instagram content. 

What should you use your Instagram Story Highlights for? Here are some popular options:

  • Showcase different products on your Instagram profile. 
  • Promote events.
  • Show what you’ve been up to or “behind the scenes.”
  • Create interactive content customers can continue to engage with, such as interactive polls.
  • Answer your followers FAQs (frequently asked questions).
  • Feature product tutorials.
  • Highlight customer testimonials.
  • Share sales and promotional discounts.

Hide Hashtags and Mentions
Let’s say you have an amazing image, but you want to increase your Story’s visibility by adding hashtags and mentions. However, you don’t want to muck-up your image. 

Preserve your aesthetic vision by tucking unsightly hashtags or tags away. It’s the digital equivalent of hiding your electrical cords behind your desk or TV stand.

Here are two methods for how to do it:

Hide Hashtags and Mentions: Method #1

  1. Type out your hashtags and mentions.
  2. Hit the stickers button and select your camera roll.
  3. Add an image from your camera roll, which will be placed on top of your hashtags to obscure them.
  4. Resize your image to fill the screen: the hashtags are technically there for Instagram to read, but human eyes won’t be able to see!

Hide Hashtags and Mentions: Method #2

  1. If you start off creating a post with an image, add a text box on top and type your hashtags and mentions.
  2. With the text box still active, click on the rainbow wheel at the top of the screen.
  3. Tap the eyedropper icon.
  4. Tap a spot on the photo to change the text to that same color and blend in.
  5. Resize the text box if necessary.

Learnt something new? All we ask of you is share this with your friends or on your social media platforms, don't be greedy with free things 😍.
