“Why Should I Use Instagram Stories?”
ENGAGEMENT! If you’re using Instagram at all whether it be for your business or personal use, you are more than likely hoping to gain new followers and new customers. The BEST way to do that is to get them to ENGAGE with your content.
DETAILS ON INSTAGRAM STORIES SIZES:
You want to design your Instagram Stories using pixels as the dimensions. Instagram Stories dimensions are 1920 x 1080 (pixels). This can be input on Canva by selecting the “Create a design” button, then selecting “Custom dimensions.”
PRO TIP: If your Instagram is connected to your Facebook account, you can share the same stories on Facebook stories too! Knocking out two birds with one stone. 😉
