  3. Use stories to promote your other social accounts. This is the perfect place to remind people about a Facebook live you might have coming up or an online party they might want to check out.
  4. Post regularly. The more often you post, the more likely your story will be one of the first to pop up on your follower’s pages. Make it a habit to post daily, this will help to create an ongoing relationship with your customers.
  5. Boost engagement. In order to make your stories effective, you want them to have a call to action. Ask your followers a question, have them DM you the answer or ask them to comment their answer on your most recent post. For example, share your morning routine with your Market America products and then ask your followers what their morning routine is.
