How to be active on Instagram

Do you find it difficult to be active on Instagram? Growing on this platform organically is not as easy as on other platforms. In order to achieve this, you need to spend time on the platform and offer good quality of content.

Sometimes though, you may have nothing to post. Or no inspiration to create a quote about your niche. What can you do on these days?

This is how to be active on Instagram

In order to be active on Instagram, you can leverage Stories. People love Stories, they consume them more than feed posts and they can be very interactive.

There are so many interactive Story Stickers that can help you. They don’t just make a Story richer. They make it more engaging.

Meaning, if you can get responses from your stories, you can grow your overall Instagram engagement.

Ideas for Instagram Stories

Here are some ideas to help you create content on the go and therefore be active on Instagram:

DM Sticker: Ask / State something and ask your followers to reply/give their opinion

Poll: Obviously, run a poll
Question: This will help if you ask your followers a more personal question instead of business staff
Challenge: Gamify your content by challenging someone
Quiz: Get your followers to participate in a small quiz with this sticker
Music: Share a song that matches your mood/personality

Of course, you can upload slides without using any interactive sticker. This will also help being active. But if you add interaction, your account earns more engagement points, if the community interacts.

How do you stay active on Instagram?

Stories are a great way to create content in a few minutes and have engagement. You can do the same on Facebook (Pages), too. Generally, you want to be active on every Social Media account, but for Instagram, this is more challenging, especially if you have no visual elements.

Of course, you still need to create good quality content. Otherwise, there will be no incentives for followers to interact.
