Storrito Q&A: Which interactive elements can I use in Instagram Stories?

Do you want to successfully showcase your brand on Instagram? Then Instagram Stories should be part of your daily work on Instagram. In our "Storrito Q&A," we answer everything you need to know about Instagram, Instagram Stories, and Instagram marketing.

Which interactive elements can I use in Instagram Stories?

You can use the interactive elements "Question Sticker," "Poll Sticker," "Quiz Sticker," "Mention Sticker," "Countdown Sticker," and the "Emoji Slider" in your Instagram stories.

Without interactive elements, your stories can quickly become too monotonous and boring for your followers. And when followers are bored, they usually click away very quickly.

To solve this problem, you can use the many interactive elements in your Instagram Stories. We'll show you some short examples of what this can look like:

With the help of the question sticker, you give your followers the chance to ask you questions. Give them a specific topic, such as questions about your online store. You turn it into an exciting Q&A story, which you can then save in your highlights.

Let your followers rate your new products with the poll sticker. What is their first impression of the products? Share the results with your followers and link to the products so that people who are interested can buy them directly.

Host a quiz for your followers using the quiz sticker. This way, you can strengthen your position as an expert. In addition, the quiz gives you the opportunity to assess what your followers know, and based on their answers, see the areas where you should focus on informing them more.

You mention another person or company in your stories? Use the mention sticker to tag the person or company. By mentioning them, the tagged user has the opportunity to post your story as well, which gives you additional reach.

You can use the countdown sticker to announce an event of yours. Or you can launch a new product and show your followers when they can buy it from you. Your followers can be reminded when the day has arrived.

The emoji slider reflects how good or bad your followers think something is. For example, this can be a new product from your online store, or a finished makeup-look, that you present to your followers. After voting, your followers will see what the average response is.

The key point is: involve your followers so they feel like they are part of your stories.
