Challenge Stickers

Whether you’re using Instagram for a personal account, or on behalf of a brand, adding Instagram Stories is a great way to increase engagement and attract new followers. Many brands use Stories to go ‘behind-the-scenes’ and create content that shows some of your brand’s personality. And with most of the world staying home right now, what better time to shake up your Instagram Stories (and have some fun doing it) than by taking part in an #Challenge?

So just what is a #Challenge? It’s an easy and fun way to engage with your followers by providing content that is entertaining. The new #Challenge Sticker is available in the latest Instagram update and in this post, we’ll look at how you can use Challenge Stickers in Instagram Stories.

Note: make sure you have the latest version of Instagram installed – check your App Store for updates.
