  1. I also use text-based Instagram stories in my profile, so this gives me more inspiration to make it a bit ‘fancier’. I always use the Strong text, but I find it boring after using it repetitively. The option to add color in the text background is nice to know, and it’s a shame but I just know that I can rotate the text 🙁 Oh yes, does the text background color only works for Strong font or it can also be used to other font types? Thanks

    1. I did the same thing… I used to do the same text over and over again it got very repetitive lol. 

      Yes, you can change the text color for all the texts, you just have to highlight it and change the color.

      Does that help?

  2. HI, I have a few questions regarding Instagram story tricks. Do all of these work on androids? Because most social media apps tend to favor apple users. Also would another engaging way be to have polls? Like to hear back from your audience? Or would having you answer questions on your story be a better way? Thank you!

    1. Hello Catrina, Yes you can use this all these tricks on an android. I have an android phone… so I actually don’t know much about an iPhone. lol 

      Yes, polls are a great way to engage with your audience… I didn’t qualify it as text… I think of it more of an emoji or a sticker add on. 

      I will say it depends on the question and the subject.. is it interesting enough for your audience to respond to the question? does the question make sense? 

      Does this all make sense? 

  3. Instagram is such a resourceful tool to expand one’s reach and I appreciate a post such as yours here that pinpoints a particular method of reaching people. Stories can be interesting and knowing text tricks allows one to level up a bit. Font style looks like a subtle way to catch peoples’ eye. I agree that you have to start somewhere. Your Instagram is fantastic and I will be following you there and here as well. Keep up the good work 🙂
