7 ways to increase Instagram Stories views
The Instagram stories have been a great success since their release thanks to the numerous updates and filters that Instagram, but also users, have made available.
In this article we see how to increase the views of stories on Instagram and consequently improve profile visibility and engagement.
Instagram stories, how to increase views
Whether you have a website and want to increase visits to your site through the Stories Swipe Up or you have a brand and want to increase sales, increasing the views of stories is useful in any case .
As I always say, you can’t expect to have a high engagement rate (in this case story views ) if you don’t publish interesting and engaging content.
Spoken stories and videos are more engaging and have a high engagement rate, but you can also do a good job with the graphics and various stickers available such as polls, questions and more.
What I advise you to do is, especially when it comes to written stories, to split the stories into 2 or 3 and create some hype in order to get the stories flowing to your followers.
Example, if you want to promote your product, don’t put the product photo right away but create a series of stories with the first one that includes a call to action, which will be to swipe to the next story.
You can also promote your stories by posting a photo on your profile (related to published stories) and write in the caption to go and see the stories just published: in this way you pique the curiosity of your followers who will go to check.
Another way to increase story views is to collaborate with other users.
You could do live shows with an expert in your niche and publish an excerpt on your stories and then send interested users to the full interview on IGTV, for example.
Even mentioning another user in stories, perhaps sharing their post, could be a way both to increase followers and to increase the views of the stories.
Of course I don’t mean to tag just any random person, it must make sense.
You can mention other people who work in the same niche as you and ask for their opinion on a topic.

A very effective method is to do take overs.
But what are take overs?
It’s about making a deal with another account and entering their profile and making stories where you talk about a topic you know or give lessons.
The alternative, if you want to avoid data exchange, create stories without publishing them on your account and turn the material to the account in question which will upload them to its stories.
A few months ago, a very successful take over was organized by Ninjalitics who, for a week, gave several professionals the opportunity to access their profile and talk about different topics such as marketing, Instagram and much more.
At the end of the day, each guest left their user tag in the stories to be followed.
Another idea I want to give you is to maybe dedicate one day a week to answering the questions of your followers.
This fixture could increase your story views considerably.
Live shows greatly increase the visibility of your profile and stories.
When a user arrives on your profile, within 24 hours, he will have the opportunity to see both your live and your stories and often, in this case, they do both.
Call to action
Another way to increase story views on Instagram is to add a call to action to your Instagram bio.
You can invite users who view your profile to watch your featured stories, for example.
The last way to increase the views of stories is to sponsor them.
This way you advertise and sponsor your stories by showing them to a specific audience.
