Instagram Stories is such a fun and interactive way to engage with your followers. The IG feature has been on an uphill climb ever since its launch in August 2016. By October 2016, Instagram Stories had 100 million active users, and Snapchat's user rate started to slow down. Many users seem to gravitate more towards Instagram Stories because of its easy accessibility, clean design, and the fact that it plugs into an existing social network. Currently, Instagram Stories has 150 million daily users, and we can expect more growth as they roll out new features and ads in the coming months.
We always design and build features for ourselves, and we found it tough to plan ahead for Instagram Stories, especially with a full editorial calendar. That's why we decided to add this new feature to PLANOLY--to streamline the planning process even more! You can only add content to your Stories from within the last 24 hours. This makes traditional methods of adding images to Stories using Dropbox or Camera Roll more challenging because there is a time stamp on the media. With our new Story feature, you can go beyond the 24-hour rule, which means you'll have more time to plan out your Stories depending on what upcoming campaigns, news, tutorials or even Insta Stories "Takeovers" you have to share!
Planning Instagram Stories on PLANOLY works similarly to the regular grid planning on PLANOLY. With our clean, beautiful and user-friendly design, you're able to add content, draft captions, and drag and drop to your heart's content! Let's go through this simple process step by step.
Planning for Instagram Stories is not available in any other app, so you heard it here first! Our Stories Planning Feature update is available on iOS, Android and Web dashboard!
