5 creative ways to use the Instagram stories question sticker

Last year, Instagram introduced its poll sticker for users to gather opinions and feedback from their followers. Now with the new question sticker for Instagram Stories, there’s an even better way to engage your audience!

With these question stickers, you can prompt your followers to submit questions, which can then be answered in a public post. Or, you can ask your followers a question and see their private responses. Whatever your goals are, there are plenty of creative ways you can utilize this new tool.

How to Engage Your Audience with Question Stickers on Instagram

To use the feature as a conversational platform with your followers, prompt them to ask you a question.

Then, pick out questions that you want to answer publicly and share them in a new story post.

Note: The responder’s username will not be shown when you repost it.

This is your chance to show a more transparent and personal side of your brand while connecting with fans one-on-one. Here are some ideas:

1. Spotlight an Expert

Give an exclusive perspective and advice by having an employee or influencer take over your story for the day to answer questions.

As you can see @Lulu’s uses the question feature to help their audience know more about the models behind their brand.

2. Prompt Questions about a Certain Subject

Direct the conversation by requesting questions about a topic your fans are curious about.  

For example, if you were a health and fitness brand you could inspire questions about meal prep to help steer the conversation to a topic you are an expert in.

3. Q&A about a New Product or Feature

Create some buzz and clear up any lingering questions about the newest changes to your business or industry. Just rolled out a fall collection? Ask your audience what they like about the new line!
