1. Module Intro: Instagram Stories: Hey, guys, welcome to this model Here we are ready to start talking about East Room stories on how to make raving fans that what you every day on instagram? Okay, we'll talk about the top strategist for INSTAGRAM. Stories astride that you can start implementing right now will analyze the top players on the interim stories. Aria, Nike, Starbucks, whole foods on DNA. Aggio on who will get destroyed is that they are using, so you can use that on your business, too. And by then off the model, you'll have all instrument stories ready on your profile. Knowing how to use it and how to use it efficiently also will talk about called toe action . Own stories on this is what one of the most powerful things. Because you can use call to actions to drive people to your website or landing page to YouTube channel or toe anywhere on the Internet that you want. Let's move to the first lecture 2. Top Instagram Stories examples: this video will talk about instrument stories on before. I'll give you more information about how you can create the absolute best stories for your business on Instagram. I'll show you some examples here right now. So here we are on my cell phone on If I go to Sirte, you see that immediately I see some circles in the top site off the screen. These circles here these are all the uses that are available right now that have are from story available Also, I can just click on one of thes and I started watching. This is how the stories looks like. You see, they use her name to our That means that this was added two hours ago and you see the timeline at the top so I can jump to the next one. He can jump to the next Yusor and I can jump on watch all the stories I want. So the goal for asking is toe, have your story here on Instagram. So when people the people that follow you on Instagram they will see, they will have They will receive this notification. They will see your story here on Instagram every day every time you create an Islamic story and you will do, they will see that here on your timeline So I can also search for stories. Let's start, for example, for travel. Let's see. Travel on. When I scroll down, you see that some users is this one. For example, view. They have a circle of a colorful circle around the picture. That means that they have current interim stories. These travel in our shoes, for example. You have a circle here on the view. You have a circle. Here it's click on this one. Travel travel Neuer So you see that they have some. They are actually promoting here, a JetBlue winter sale saying that they have flights starting at $39. So this is a great example of how people are using instagram stories to profit for under Islam followers. Okay, here's another promotion on another one, and that's how works. Also, if you are following hash tax and this is a nor powerful way to do it, you can search for, for example, travel. Go here and you click on follow. Let's see here you see that the blue follow bottom. So if I click here, I will be following these specific travel hashtag and you see that in this travel hashtag circle, we have also the color for the color for story circle that is around the iconic. That means they they have current stories. So if I click here, I can see all the current stories that has the travel hash tax on then. Okay, this is how works on. It's a great way he storms stories is very, very popular on instagram right now, people cos everybody's using this everyday on its promise is noticing. They're releasing new studies These various a very new tool there listen new studies, Same that most people are The people are spending most time in the storm stories that other places on the East room app So that's why I want to create bees and I will. In the next videos, I will share with you the strategies that you need to know on how to do it, actually, the step by step to do our interim story on also the strategies that you need to keep in mind when you are creating one in norther to deliver the message, not just posting photos and video, but delivering the message for your out is how you can use the power off summer stories toe . Actually create sales for your business to actually increase your followers toe collect name and email, for example, came or talk about your products and services. All that we will be talking in the next video. Let's move forward right now. 3. The Power of Instagram Stories: Okay, now that we saw some examples off the storm stories, let me tell you small leaders about the stories and how that works. The stories last for 24 hours, so if I pose a story today, it would last for 24 hours so I can pose one today. One. Right now, I compose the second for or video in a few minutes or in a few hours on Easter, one will start collecting all the things that I am posting on. They will create what they call is from stories. So we do that and not 24 hours. They clip that complete. The 24 hours will be dropped from the stories, and you can add more and more clicks. Let's see if this goes to the next one. Yes, it goes on that how works also business are using these in no to collect customers name and email to drive people to their website to promote their products and services on. You can do that very easily to one suggestion. A lot of beans are doing this. They are doing the back scenes, the backstage off the business, So getting to the business every morning how that works. What do you do first? The morning meetings. Making the product may be creating what you are selling. Delivering your service. Maybe. Right. So there are no limits off the things that you can share on instagram stories. That's the beauty. The more creative you are, the better. This is like like like creating a YouTube video, I can tell you. Okay, Corinne, a YouTube video about these days and these, but actually the people decorate original video. Are the people on the companies that have MOCs more success on? The same applies here for instrument stories. So there are no limits and no rules for you or for your business wanted. Suggestion that you can do east analyze what your competitors are doing so you can go and search as I show you later. Earlier, in the course here, you concert for your competitors. You already have a lease off competitors. Probably. If you are doing the assignment in order on, you can go there and see what they're posting on the storm stories, letter from them. They see if people are in engaging or not. And with that, you can start having ideas and creating your own Easter um, story. Another important tip here is Toby, very regularly with the stories. If you decide that you want to do in terms stories for your followers, I recommend you to do it daily because the more regularly you polls on on Islam stories, the more the closer to the beginning. You go. Let me show you what I mean. Exactly. Here we are on my test account on Instagram. They want that we created for these cars and you see, the 1st 1 here is work out. The 2nd 1 is food form travel new your city and love. You see that New York City? That law, for example, it's last on the list is if I go here and they watch this one. I watched the love story. This story will be on the first position off my least so the most. I watch one story and these are actually hash tax. But you you can follow hashtag as you know, or you can follow users. I can follow one specific use of one specific company like for simple Nike on. If I watch Nike stories, it will always show in the first place on my stories what that means for you. That means that the most rare, the more regularly you posed, the higher you will go here on the ranking. Let's say off the sovereign for your followers. That's what is important on the only the other thing is that is instagram stories a little bit different than just posting on Instagram because let me play these here because when you are posting that's great. You are interacting with your audience. But when you are doing in some stories, you are that you are sharing apart off your day with them. OK, you are daily saying, Hey, this is what things looks like on my business to see what my life is like. So you are sharing a small person off your life right on. This is not demanding aspirating daily videos or daily blocks, for example, because it will just take your few seconds toe open your phone, open the instrument at and record the stories you can share 12 for 5 10 seconds off story a few times a day on that won't take much time for for you right on. The good thing is that you are getting your stumbling that relationship. That's my point. Actually, the point is that you are creating on you are establishing a trustful relationship between you and your customers. The more the more your customer see you, the more your customers see your company, your products or services. The higher the chances for them to convert later on a client, the higher the chances for them to purchase junior product or to hire you again for for your services, right so that Islam stories is a powerful tool that people are loving it on Instagram. Also, if you go life on Instagram for some reason, it will go to your story. If you set up in the way on, we'll talk about the Sermon Life, how you can Go Life for your customers on your followers on Instagram in the next model. OK, that's Instagram story. In the next video, we'll create your we will talk about first the storm story setting so you know what? Which are the best settings that you need to set up on your phone in orderto to be more optimized and to record to say that story on your on your archive on only sermon. I'll show you that in the next video. Let's do that right now. 4. Instagram Story Settings: Okay, Instagram stories, settings. Let let's talk about the settings on. I'll show you how. E series to configure the best settings for your story. Here we're on the main East Room account. Let's go click on the lower right hand side unq ear. We click on the settings icon, and now we're on the options. Right scroll down until you see story settings. You see account photos of you on story cities. Let's click on that. And here we have all these stories settings available right now. If you are watching this video in the future, you may see more options here because Instagram is always adding more and more options to a story settings. But let's explore explore what we have right now. The first option is is sharing with us. Hide story from. So if you want Tito, hide your story from specific people, there are, Let's say you I don't want your friends from work to what to see one specific story so you can click on here, select the people that follow you that you want to hide your story front on. That will be done. That's it. Initially, I recommend you to just leave 20 people here, if you are, especially if you are using this for business because we want your story to be in front of the maximum number of people right as possible. The second section here is allow message reply. That means when you are crazy stories, you pose that on your followers are watching. They have the chance to reply to you if they if they click on the screen, they tap the screen. You they will see a reply. The keyboard. It will come up on the screen and they will have the chance to reply to you if you allow their replies on this case by before we are allowing replies from everyone, Um or you can say, OK, I want replies on Lee from people that I follow Okay, so millions of people can follow me, but I want I want I want to allow the replies my story on Lee off the people for the people that I follow. That's an option, or you can just simply after the comments off on this case, nobody will be ableto reply to you. I will leave it on, especially if you're using for business, because we want to start a conversation with your audience. So if somebody if somebody wants to talk to you. So somebody have a question about something that you share about a product, a service, you can reply to them. Here you can start a conversation, and that's important. We want to use all the chances we have to start a great conversation with your audience. The next section. Disallow sharing. Let people share your story. Us messages. This explains itself. Basically, when they are watching your story they have. They will have the chance to click a button and share that with other people with their friends or family. Off course. I will love. I love I will love. If they do that on, I will allow these for sure. The next section is saving on these by before on my account is off, so it's saying safe toe camera roll or safe toe archive. I will enable both off this. What's the difference? The 1st 1 is camera roll that will safe the stories on your phone so automatically every 24 hours they started will disappear from Instagram from your followers, but it will be safe on your camera roll, and that's important. If you want to keep right, you want to keep the register. You want to keep the good memories that you share with your audience. Maybe so your personal account. Maybe you are traveling and you want to have that Enstrom story. That is great. You will have that saving to your camera roll on. The second option is to save to archive and these East saving automatically on Easter Graham archive. Be saying he automatically say your photos and video in your eye archive so you don't have to save them on your phone. So if you have a phone that doesn't have a lot of memory, you are running out of memory. You can disable the camera roll on, leave the archive, enable game only you can see then after they disappear from your story. So after 24 hours, if the archive is enable on Lee, you will be able to see them. Your audience wants would have access to the stories that have more than 24 hours. Okay, on the last one is shared. Your story on Facebook automatically posed for us on videos from your story to your Facebook story, Facebook now have also the fabled Facebook story. Actually, Facebook on Instagram they are the same company on Facebook now is implementing. If you see on your Facebook up on your mobile at the top. Also, you'll see some stories from your friends. It's not very popular right now, maybe populating the future. So if you enable these, it will automatically save your stories from Instagram to Facebook. If you are doing this for business, this is a great tool. So these are the interim story settings very basic on Easy to use. The most important thing for me here. It's actually make sure the comments are enabled because I want to start conversation with people I want to allow sharing on. I want to for sure, safe to my camera, roll on to the archive on, so I hope this is helpful. Let's move forward to the next video 5. Creating your Instagram Stories: OK, guys, now is the time to create the first storm story. And let's do that together. He were on the phone on the APP on. If we go here on your icon on your A logo on your e, much the main image off the count. You see a plaice sign. I click there. On here. You see me? This is the front facing camera off their device we're using on now. I am ready to start creating my story. So what? What are the options we have? The first option is to take a picture, make a video here, actually make a video with me in front of the camera or you can use the other camera if you want. Right, or you can use the front camera. That's one option. Another option that you can do. You can pose videos on photos that you already have on your device. So if I click here, you see the square here on the lower left hand side.

So let me share another trick here we have some effects. If you see the first of frank to the right on the lower corner you see that we can add some great effects like this one. For example, Let's see. So we have, like, this light. We have balloons. So there are a lot off great effects on these Eastern. These are in every day. Here I am with sunglasses, at least school. Um, So you will find new and you have new effects every day here on the system. So let's remove these. Let's see here, let's go to the not natural, okay? And this is another way to do it. Also, you have at the bottom here normal life, boomer. And on Super Zoom, rewind, hand free and stop motion. These are specific ways to create videos. Two for the stories Life. Don't worry about that. We're talking about that in the next section. A complete section about this because this is super powerful on Boomer, and it will go in a look.

So if I click here on the picture icon here, you see all the photos that I have on my device. So I can pick any of these for us. Let's like this one, for example. And I can add more information. Like, for example, if I click on the top side the first icon, you can add location, temperature, date specific hashtag the day of the week specific. Um uh, icons on draws that are for the locations that you are on. The things that are happening right now in the world. So I can at any of these things here to my story. And you can move it.
