Generate Buzz for Your Event with Instagram Stories

By December 17, 2019

Snapchat is the photo-sharing social media of the past. It’s all about Instagram now- especially Instagram stories! Instagram stories allow a user to post a photo that is only shown on their account for 24 hours. After that, it is put in the user’s private archive to access later. Check out our favorite ways to use Instagram stories to generate buzz for events:

Foster engagement

Get your attendees engaged ahead of time! Use Instagram polls (think: what are you looking forward to most about this event?”) or have a social media contest to foster engagement before the event.

Go behind the scenes

Whether you’re at a planning meeting with your team or it’s the day of and you’re hanging up decorations, give event attendees a sneak peek of what’s going on behind the scenes. It will only add to the excitement and help build anticipation before your guests arrive.

Live video

Your event is finally here! Stream live from Instagram stories to show your followers what is going on and give those who aren’t attending serious FOMO.


Once the 24-hour story period has passed it doesn’t mean your stories go away forever. Use Instagram profile highlights to keep past Instagram stories on your profile page all year long and highlight the good times had at your events.
