Start off with at least four, and spread ’em throughout the day, and by doing that, you’ll continually get views, versus if you just did one story update per day. The second tip I have for you is leverage videos. In your stories, a lotta people just put photos. People want engaging content. Whether it’s videos or Boomerangs, people love the engagement. So by creating videos, what you’ll find is, you’ll get way more engagement. As you get more engagement, your stories are gonna start spreading, and more people gonna be viewing them. When you’re also creating stories, you wanna tag relevant accounts. This is the third tip for you. It’s simple, if you mention Nike, tag Nike. If you mention a friend, tag that friend. By tagging other people, you’ll get more views. There’s not much more to it. Make sure the tags are relevant, and don’t just include Nike and just be like: Oh, yeah, yeah, this what happened in my day. Blah, blah, blah, Nike. And then you move on and you tag Nike. That’s not gonna work. Don’t cheat the system. Make amazing stories that are relevant, and when you mention brands or friends, tag them when it’s related enough. The fourth strategy I have for you is to use hashtags. I know everyone’s saying that they’re played out, but they do work. The more hashtags you use, the more traffic you’re gonna get. But the key isn’t to just use any random hashtags. You wanna use ones that people search for. If you’re not sure what words people are searching for, go to Ubersuggest, type in keyword related to your space, and it’ll tell you other popular phrases that people are using. This data is taking search data. That’s what Ubersuggest does. I know it’s not Instagram, but it’s search data. It’s very similar. It’s people searching on Instagram for hashtags. What typically works for Google works for Instagram when it comes to hashtags and words that are popular. The fifth strategy I have for you is to ask a question or create a poll. You can do this, everyone does this. You can even have those sliders within your Instagram Stories that makes people slide a smiley face and see where most people are at. By asking a question or doing a poll or making the sliders, what you’ll find is you’ll get more engagement, which will help you get more views in the long run. And the last strategy I have for you is to use location-based tags, and here’s why: Have you noticed every once in a while Instagram will really push a story from someone? And it’s typically random. But this randomness is typically caused by when people are using location-based tag in which they’re gonna share something from Hollywood, California or Los Angeles-based, California, versus something that doesn’t have a location-based tag. So add a location-based tag to your stories. It’ll help you potentially get shared more from Instagram and get your stories pushed out, so you’re gonna get more views. Now if you’re leveraging all of these strategies, good for you. But if you’re not leveraging ’em, just leave a comment with: I’m not. I’m just curious to see how many of you are leveraging all of them out there. I’m telling you, if you use ’em, you’re going to get more engagement, views, and you’re gonna do way better on Instagram.

  3. I have been doing quality posts, quality stories, polls, videos, reels, my followers keep going up but not my views and not my likes, what can I do? I am so desperate 😫

  4. Thanks for the tips! At this moment I am only getting 2 views so I’m really frustrated

  5. People don't know what you put in your stories until the see it so i think this is useless,it depends on who cares about seeing your stories,not what you put,it depends on who you are

  6. Hi,
    I´m sorry but I have a very basic question….when I post a video on stories…it´s divided in parts…I just need to use the hashtags on the first part of the video…or I have to put the same hashtags in each part of the video?
    Thanks in advance,

  7. Just got started on Instagram today! Looks like the most recent comment was 11 months ago, so I’ll be surprised if you see this. I was focused on FB & I had been following everything ‘Dan Henry’ until his arrogance became unbearable! It’s like… ‘Dude shut the hell up!” 😶 He took me on when I called him out about his nasty criticism about anyone who couldn’t afford to pay for his course! He commented on my comment… I didn’t get a chance to read it (only saw the notification) & then he deleted my comment & proceeded to block me, soon after! 🤔🤪 I think that means I won!

  8. I am using half of them! The 4 stories a day is where i have an opportunity!! Thank you!
