“Despite the uncertainty, we’ve seen business owners use Stories as a simple way to connect, provide value and offer reassurance. For example, fitness studios have posted workout challenges to keep their customers active and engaged, and food delivery services have used Stories to encourage people to support local restaurants by ordering takeout and delivery. Stories’ real-time, authentic nature can help humanize your brand, drive entertaining engagement and garner support for your business. See below for a few tips on how to use Stories during this challenging time.”

“Businesses can share new gift card, food order, and fundraiser stickers in Stories and on their profiles.

“For many businesses right now, every sale helps. We’ll continue to work on features that make it easier to support the small businesses you care about,” Instagram said in its blog post.
