If you are using Instagram marketing for your business, you need to get higher engagement rates with your Instagram followers. When your Instagram fan is engaging more with your content, it signals to the Instagram algorithm that platform users are interested in your content. This will help you reach a wider audience and gain more true Instagram followers. With more engagement, you can achieve higher search engine rankings and even land on the Explore Instagram tab. One way to increase audience engagement is to use the Instagram Story Poll. More viewers can enjoy Instagram for your content, and further increase the engagement rates on your profile.


What are Instagram polls?

In 2017, Instagram added a poll feature to Stories that allows people to access content on the platform. With this feature, your Instagram followers have provided 1 out of 2 options in response to specific questions asked. These may or may not be simple answers, or you may be given other options to choose from.


How to add polls to your Instagram Stories?

Creating polls for your Instagram Stories is easy. Once you have the picture or video you want to add to Stories, select the Stickers option from the top right section of your screen. Then click on the "Hole" icon and add it to your photo or video. The default options for the classic poll are "Yes" and "No" but you can customize these options. There is no character limit to the questions, but the character limit for the answers is 22 characters. Once you’ve done this, you can share it with your Instagram followers and see the results. Results can be seen in real time by swiping up on your Story. Because Instagram Stories lasts for 24 hours, so will your poll, but you can highlight it to make sure it doesn’t disappear after 24 hours.You’ll see how many people vote on for your voting options as well as how many opinions the Story received.


By sharing the results of the poll it is possible to keep the interest of Instagram fans as they are, after all, the people who voted on the given options. To do so, simply click on the "Common Results" option in the Views tab and let viewers know the results of the poll they voted for.
