Visual content has become the most useful tactic when it comes to digital marketing. The “IG Story” is an Instagram feature that is not only interactive but is also a way to display good visual content. It has been widely used even by different brands for promotion. 

According to studies, there is an 80% chance that people will remember what they see. That’s why we recommend you to post photos that are aesthetically pleasing to the eyes of your audience.
