2 hacks that’ll get you more Insta-Story taps

The best Instagram stories are real stories. They have a narrative with a beginning, a middle, and an end.

The best Instagram stories are real stories. They have a narrative with a beginning, a middle, and an end. This keeps your audience engaged for longer, making your relationship with them stronger.

With that said, the last thing you want is to lose them halfway. So, you gotta keep them tapping.

Not sure how to do that? These two design tricks will help:

Break up one long image

Create curiosity by splitting an image over 3–5 slides in your story.

Use visual cues

You can do this by adding three dots after your copy, using arrows, or showing a person pointing, gesturing, or looking towards the next slide.

And then we have PDF’s

These are for when you’re ready to print. Most printers will ask for you to send your design as a PDF file as it is a universal standard. This is because PDF’s are the safest bet for keeping all your design components intact and avoiding any unwelcome surprises when transposing your design from a digital file to a tangible object.

And that’s it! There are more image file formats out there, but for the best of us who create and share awesome designs with Over, the above is all we need to know.

Good News: We recently released a new ‘Export Preview’ feature so now you can view your image in a specific format to make sure that it is right before exporting.

Take your Instagram Stories to the next level
