Today: How do I use and create templates for my Instagram Stories?

You've probably noticed that influencers and companies use templates for their Instagram Stories. These templates are often quite memorable.

Working with templates is a great strategy to help you stand out and increase your brand awareness. Templates also help you to quickly and effectively design your Instagram stories and thus also save time.

There are pre-made layouts for templates that already include text formats, graphics, and animations which you can customize accordingly for your particular story.

Why are templates useful for Instagram Stories?

If you have a specific message for your followers, then your goal is generally to reach as many people as possible within your target group. If you want to post multiple stories a day, it's ideal to use templates so that your stories are consistent and also so you can design them quickly.

Just like your post feed should fit together in the bigger picture of your brand image, it is the same with Instagram stories. It is helpful to give your stories common threads. For example, if you always use the same font, it will become a recognizable feature. In combination with a recurring font color, the effect will be strengthened even more.

How do I create templates for my Instagram stories?

There are many programs that can help you with creating templates. Canva is one example. You can use Canva on your phone or PC to create all kinds of designs. In the app, you can easily and quickly create graphics, compare and contrast numbers, or show data sets.
