It’s been a little over a week since Instagram stories arrived and stole Snapchat’s thunder.
If you are wondering what you should post that you didn’t already include in the normal Instagram feed, you are not alone. Everyone that didn’t understand Snapchat and finally mastered Instagram is even more confused about what to post on Instagram stories.You already post product photos and post some videos, so what is this additional feature supposed to do?
I think it was intended to make it super easy for the customer to connect with you. Literally, all you have to do is scroll all the way to the top of Instagram and scroll to the side and everyone’s story that you follow pops up. It’s not a separate app. No more chasing down usernames and scanning codes.
The only downside is that you may not see as many likes as you used to. Since they can look at your story, they might not go to your page at all. Unless you are serving their immediate need they have NO NEED to go to your Instagram page and look at your mini look book of products.

Think of Instagram Stories as mini commercials. You are allowed to be silly. Your post can inspire and amaze. Just like a commercial. You can post still photos too, just like on SnapChat, but you have a whole feed to do that on.
