Do’s and Dont’s

You need to bear in mind that Instagram is accessible to all, and though that is good for business, it also means that there are a few practises you should keep in mind to have a good and creative Instagram Story, representative of your business.

 -Utilize whitespace

If you’re using graphics or a designed image of any type, use whitespace (or negative space) to your advantage. This helps keep your Instagram story looking clean and organized. This gives it that high-quality look professional images have.

No one will enjoy watching your stories  if they look cluttered. You want to be able to draw the users attention so that they’ll be interested in your brand/ products.

In Seedtale you can find a whole image stock with the best quality possible, and if you want to upload your own image you can as well and just edit it to your liking.
