Getting Creative on the 'gram - Instagram Story Templates
This month has been super busy - but in the best way possible. As a creative biz owner with TWG Designs, I’m constantly trying to avoid being stagnant and spend the majority of my “free time” thinking up new ideas on how to expand my brand with different types of products and goodies.
So, is it weird to say I thought of this idea in the shower?! Maybe… oh well!
I have seen Instagram story templates floating around for a while now. The “this/that” ones, or “fill in your favorite ______.” And seen as how most of my IG followers are super creative and FUN people, I figured they might like some fresh new templates to add to their social media tool belt. So, I got to work and designed 12 templates in the classic TWG branding color palette.
You might be asking… Ok, but what are they for?!
Instagram templates are great for days when you need a quick content idea, want to increase IG engagement, or simply feel like getting a little creative with some doodles, emojis, and gifs! The templates also help grow your connection with your followers because they reveal little facts about you and often generate some laughs and spark up conversations in your DM’s with people who can relate to your biggest fear, or find your quote of the day super inspiring. I shared these templates on instagram only 4 days ago, and I already feel like I have gotten to know my followers on a whole new level!
HOW TO USE:
The easiest way to access these templates (did I mention they are 100% free?!) is by checking out the “Templates” highlight on my TWGDesigns instagram page. All you have to do is find the template you want to use, tap and hold the screen with your finger to pause the slide, and then take a screenshot. And that’s it! The template is now saved to your phone and ready to be uploaded to your instagram story! (PS- when you post a template to your story, always share a blank version immediately after, so that your followers can also screenshot and fill our their own versions!)
