Take advantage of Instagram POLLS

Instagram has just launched POLLS in its stories. It’s pretty straight-forward. All you need to do is choose the “poll” sticker and add it to your image. It’s great new way to engage followers— and you can see who is voting all the while collecting valuable information that can be used for your business.

Here are a few tips to increase Instagram engagement for your business:

– Settle topical arguments that are related to your industry. For example, if you’re in the restaurant industry ask, “Is pizza is better than poutine?” and give them the YES or NO options. This will cause some serious debate because we all know pizza wins right???

– Use a fun photo for the background. Instastories are quickly swiped and moved on from. If you don’t have an image that forces people to stop, they will just keep swiping until someone else stops them.

– Share the results. You can see the results, but your followers can’t— so the nice thing to do is to share the results. The results may get them debating the topic, which equals, even MORE, engagement and a higher likelihood of them returning to view your content.
