Create Stickers for your Instagram Stories

Instagram Stories are becoming one of the best ways to connect with your audience and to grow your followers. Yet a common problem is that posting consistently can be tricky — but it doesn’t have to be difficult! 

On Instagram, stickers are super popular right now! There isn’t a ton to choose from on Instagram, but never fear — you can easily make your own and have them feel right on brand at the same time!

Learn how to create branded Instagram stories stickers with She's Got Vision! From how to turn your logo into a sticker to how to create sticker graphics, this tutorial makes it quick and easy to create amazing on-brand elements for your Instagram stories.

Here’s a quick step-by-step tutorial on how you can add stickers to your Instagram stories

1. Download the graphics you want to use for stickers to your camera roll. You can do this by downloading them directly using your phone.

You can also download the graphics to your computer and save them to Google Drive or Dropbox or AirDrop the files to yourself.

I love to airdrop them to myself, and I also have them saved to Google Drive as a backup.

2. Choose the graphic you want to use for a sticker from your camera roll and select COPY.

3. Open Instagram and choose the image you want to use for the background.

4. Tap the screen (as if you’re about to type) and tap again or hold down until you can press paste. Then, PASTE the sticker overlay into Instagram.

The paste feature can be a bit touchy, so don’t worry if it doesn’t pop up right away. It’ll show up eventually!

5. Pinch and squeeze with your fingers to move and resize the sticker and place it as desired on top of the image.

6. Add additional stickers, text, or hashtags and then post to Instagram.


How to create branded Instagram stories

I love a great customer experience, so creating on-brand experiences in all areas of my business is really important to me. While there are some great stickers on Instagram that coordinate with my brand, I love creating consistency.

So, I had a designer (the amazing Kelly over at Star Castle Studio) create some custom icons for my brand. Check them out:

She turned all those icons into different color variations, and I used the steps above to turn those into on-brand Instagram story stickers.

I can also take text and turn it into png graphics that allow me to make cute on-brand saying stickers to add to my stories as well. Here’s a sample of a phrase, an icon and my logo as stickers to create an Instagram post:

I want to empower you to push the boundaries of good enough in running your business — to move beyond quick hacks and embrace quality and ethics in marketing.⁠ .⁠ With where we're at today in the quick gratification mindset, it's common to want to get it all done quickly. But what gets missed is the research and deeper connections with our audience.⁠ .⁠ When you're missing the language that helps you speak to your audience in the way they speak, you wind up creating things that fizzle out. Worse yet, you wind up attracting the wrong people!⁠ .⁠ It's time to stop the crappy content cycle and move toward creating amazing content.⁠ .⁠ Don't worry, it's not complicated! It just takes a little time and effort to really understand who you're wanting to attract and build relationships with.⁠ .⁠ It's as simple as interviewing people who fit your ideal client profile and having a conversation with them about their struggles, needs, and wins. That research and insight will help you to create better content and nail your messaging every time.⁠ .⁠ Once you nail that, the content creation process becomes easy and idea drought disappears. In its place is an idea ocean, and it's an awesome way to share your perspective and experiences while providing value back to your audience.⁠ .⁠ Do you have a solid picture of your ideal client?⁠ .⁠ If not, go back to the basics and think about what your client's life looked like before working with you and what it will look like after working with you. Paint a picture, then go out and talk to people who fit your ideal customer profile to help you understand their needs in a deeper way.⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ #shesgotvision #shemovesmountains #quotestoliveby #empoweredwomen #lifeisajourney #locationindependent #marketingstrategy #experientialmarketing #marketingtips #experiencedesign #marketingonline #digitaladvertising #contentmarketing #socialmediastrategy #marketing101 #businesstips #marketingagency #solopreneur #socialmediamanager #tiptuesday #socialmedia101 #customerfirst #bosschick #buildingbrands #getdifferentfaster #femaleboss #buildingwealth #professionalservices #savvybusinessowner
