Instagram Announces a New Way to Share Stories
As you already know, I enjoy keeping up-to-date with all of the new social media marketing strategies and sharing them with you so you can spend more time creating art, and develop strategic marketing strategies that will help you to grow your art business.
I have some exciting news I just came across and I think it will be very helpful for artists trying to build a following on Instagram.
According to Instagram:
Since launching last year, Instagram Stories has quickly become a place to connect more closely with the people, interests, and brands you care about most. Now sharing those favorite everyday moments is even easier.
This update will be rolling out globally over the coming weeks. To learn more about sharing a story in Direct, check out the Instagram Help Center. The new feature is available for iOS and Android in the Apple App Store and Google Play as part of Instagram version 11.0.

Social media has made it easy for artists and other businesses to build brand awareness to people around the world.
The good news is that you do not have to do all the work yourself.
As long as you can build a strong tribe, they will help you to build your brand awareness by sharing your content with their friends and family.
How to Build a Following with Stories
Instagram Stories are becoming more and more popular.
All you need to do now is join in the game and create Instagram stories about your journey of being an artist.
Doing so will attract people who are interested in your artistic style.
These people might become some of your biggest fans (your tribe) and they will be sharing your Instagram stories to their friends. If their friends like your work, they will start to follow you and share your stories as well.
Instagram is making it easy for you to grow your audience, all you have to do is participate.
This is exciting news and I am looking forward to seeing how it plays out.
