3. Post To Instagram Stories

Don't forget that posting on Instagram Stories is an additional way to reach different followers.

Stories also offer a great opportunity to encourage your followers to visit your recent feed post to read more, or click the link in your bio to visit your blog, website, or current offering.

PRO TIP: Just like with all your social media posts, be sure to use eye-catching photos to entice viewers to stop the scroll and hang out on your feed a while. This is how you connect with new prospects, gain new followers and become memorable - which all leads to new prospects! Here's where to find the best photos and social graphics for Instagram.
