Let’s get to it!
Location stickers are ideal if you’re hoping to increase views and engagement on your Instagram Stories.
If you add a location tag to your Instagram Stories, you will be shown in the public stories feed for that location, just like normal Instagram posts. This will help your business be discovered by more people who don’t follow you.
If your business is having a location-based event you can share a story with the location tagged so your followers are aware of the location before-hand.
- Being discovered by more users
- Increasing views and engagement on your stories
- Advertising your physical location
This is great to use if you’re working with influencers, other brands, or using someone else’s content. Make sure you give the appropriate thanks to who ever has contributed to your post.
This also helps to strengthen your online relationships and build trust among your followers.
- Building your online community
- Sharing the love
- Showcasing accounts you like
- Showcasing partnerships and influencer campaigns
