4 Ways Your Business Can Use Instagram’s New Chat Sticker!

Last month Instagram rolled out a new Stories Chat Sticker, which allows business profiles to better engage with the community, start real conversations, and gain more followers through posting to their Instagram Stories. Here are 4 strategic ways that businesses can use the Instagram Stories Chat Sticker: How should you use the Chat Sticker?
  1. Invite customers to a local event. Let’s say you’re hosting an event or meet-up. You can use the chat feature to build a mini-community around the event. Introduce yourself to the group and answer any questions they might have.
  2. Get customer feedback: Looking for honest feedback? Invite a select number of followers to chat with you on what they like and/or dislike about your product/service.
  3. Offer an exclusive deal or info: Use the chat feature to convert your followers into buyers by offering a limited time promo code or new product.
  4. Create mini-communities with your clients: If you’re regularly communicating with clients, use the chat feature to bring specific people together. For example; you’re a personal trainer and a few of your clients are training for a marathon. Fire up the chat sticker to get all of your runners in the same place.

WordPress maintenance & updates are crucial to keeping your website running smoothly!

At Strategy 3 we build all of our websites utilizing the WordPress content management system. The core WordPress software and any plugins used to run a site need to be updated to maintain optimal performance and security. Without this maintenance your site could experience unpleasant consequences such as increased page loading time, potential security threats, decreased user experience and declining search engine rankings. This type of maintenance is vital and can be quite tricky for someone unfamiliar with the software. Here at Strategy 3 we are experts in keeping your site running at its best. Contact us today to see how we can help!
