I know what it feels like to act uninspired, posting generic content while frustratingly striving for perfection. That’s not what Instagram is about. It’s a place to inspire both the audience and the creator. It’s a wonderful opportunity to express yourself, show off your talent, and create a supportive community. Do not let it become a creativity killer. There are many ways you can make it more enjoyable not only for your followers, but for yourself as well.

Save them, love them, share them! You can thank me later.

1. Unfold

A good story on insta is not only a treasure to keep in your highlights, but it can also massively increase your audience’s engagement. Unfold is an app developed by Squarespace to ease your creative flow by providing you with over 150 beautiful story templates to up your game.

The app is incredibly easy to use and creates the most amazing stories for photo and video content in no time. I use the (paid) Pro version because I like to keep all my options open, and believe me, there are many options to choose from! Not only does this app offer tons of new ideas, but this version also allows you to create stunning biosites on Instagram. You also get access to stock images, which are very useful for backgrounds. If you prefer to keep it plain and simple, you’ll also like the free option.

2. Swipemix

If you’re an avid carousel-person like me, you might enjoy using Swipemix. The app truly stands out when it comes If you are an avid carousel user like me, you might like Swipemix. The app really stands out from the rest when it comes to unique post collages for the Instagram carousel to swipe over. The templates are all ready to go and very easy to use. Just make sure you get the ratio right when mixing and matching certain carousels with your main photo on Insta. 

Carousels are incredibly popular now, especially with the new algorithm (god, here we go again). Insta loves to boost them. And why? The answer is simple: the goal is to keep your audience engaged for as long as possible. Carousels do that, at least for more than a few seconds as opposed to a classic post with one image. Is it worth using them? My answer is a loud and clear YES.

3. Mosaic

This app is undoubtedly the most time-consuming of them all. But it generates the best, most incredible stories. It’s like the perfect combination of Unfold and Swipemix, seamlessly blending images using a layering strategy. You just click on the photo in the story to go to the next photo, which is layered over the previous one. Sounds complicated, I hear you, but it’s not!

Again, I really like the Pro version because it lets you use all the themes you want. It can and will help you design your Instagram stories in a nice, professional way.

4. Mextures

Again, I really like the Pro version because it lets you use all the themes you want. It can and will help you design your Instagram stories in a nice, professional way.

5. Inshot

You can use it to edit your photos, but I only reach for Inshot to edit and prep my smartphone videos. Not only is the app incredibly easy to use, but it also allows you to add music and change the speed of the snippets, overlay them, and cut them into a desired shape or length.

I bet there are many different apps, paid and free, that can help you prepare your videos for Instagram Stories, but this one stuck with me and it’s my ride or die.
