Last week, Instagram introduced two new features that are quite interesting for Instagram Stories Lover like me. You can now archive all of your Instagram Stories and you can also share them directly on a new section on your profile called the Highlight sections. At first, I was not too sure about the goal of that extra feature until I understand how you can truly use the Instagram Stories Highlights to your advantage.
However, I would like to add that this feature reminds me a lot of Swishlinks Feature with the exact same name where you could save different stories or collection as highlights to be the first thing that the visitors see when they look at your profile… coincidence? Who knows?
There’s two ways to save an Instagram Stories Highlights.
The first way to do it is pretty straightforward. The stories highlights feature only work after you have posted your story. When you upload your story, you can go back to it and you will see a heart in the bottom right, this is the new Instagram Stories Highlights button. When you click on it, you can decide to save your story in a new highlight and this will be on your profile.
The second way is from your profile. Under your description you will see a ”+ New” Sign, when you click on it, you will see all the stories that you have created since the new update came out and you can decide which one you would like to what Instagram Highlights.
Personally, I feel that this is perfect for businesses, because you can categorize the different services and products that you have. Per example, if you are a bakery, you could do different Instagram Stories Highlights to showcase your bread, your snacks, your specialities and more! In addition, you can name your Instagram Highlights so you can be sure to get the visitors attention right away.
As for me, I plan to use the Instagram Stories Highlights to promote my vlogs, stop-motions, my travel memories that didn’t make the cut for my Instagram Feed and other projects. What about you, what do you plan to use the Instagram Highlights for?
