Reem Hindieh, Manager – Social Media, GEMS Education, shares the best ways to make the most of your Instagram stories.



Give your stories context by adding a few lines of text and by tagging any person/ school/entity involved. For example, @GEMS_Education


Make your Insta story text stand out by adding a background colour to it!



Always add relevant hashtags that are tied to your school or the activity/event you are covering


If you have audio in your video and want people to listen to it, make sure you add the sound on sticker from the emojis menu


Consider adding emojis and funny GIFs to make your stories more engaging



When covering an event, activity, or a talk on Instagram stories make sure to post a mix between still images and video (boomerangs are a plus)
