In case you didn’t know, Instagram Stories now has more than 400 million daily users. You read that right — 400 million — which means it gained over 100 million new users in less than two years. Don’t know about you, but we think that’s pretty mind-blowing! 🤯 Stories has become an essential part of a brand’s Instagram presence, and we’d be surprised to find a successful Instagram account that doesn’t make use of this popular feature. So, the question is: What does it really take to kick ass at Stories? Well, for starters, you’re going to need to become intimately familiar with the key metrics you can use to track your growth (or lack thereof 😅). Conveniently, in today’s featured article, Olga Rabo (@therussianaborad) covers each and every metric currently available for Instagram Stories analytics, shows you how to interpret them, and most importantly shares some great actionable advice on what to actually do with those insights. So, whenever you’re ready to learn how to stand out with Stories and use them to drive your goals, you know what to do — tap the link in our bio! 😃
