5 Content Ideas for Instagram Stories

Instagram is one of the most popular social media platforms out there, which means there is a massive opportunity to connect with your ideal audience, build a strong community, and have more sales!

Instagram makes it easy to connect with your audience with Instagram Stories, but if I’m being honest sometimes showing up on IG Stories can feel like a lot of work. I mean, what do you even talk about, what do you even share?!

Today, I wanted to break through that fear and share with you 5 quick and easy content ideas for Instagram stories!

1. Day in the Life

Share your morning routine, home office tour, or even a get ready with me. This helps your audience connect with you on a deeper level.

2. Share a Tutorial

People love tutorials, especially if they are quick and easy. Share your dinner recipe, hair and/or makeup look, how to create a post or reel! This will help show your expertise!

3. Run a Poll

Polls are an incredibly easy way to engage your audience. You can ask for content ideas, what people want to see, this or that, favorite products, and more!

4. Weekly Roundup

Share your favorite new Netflix series you just watched, podcasts, books, recipes, current trends!

5. Play a Game

Use the quiz feature or the poll feature to do this or that, two truths and a lie, yay or nay. This helps your audience get to know you and associate certain things with you and your brand!
