Questions? We’ve Got You Covered

What are Instagram Story Ads?

Instagram Story Ads exist within Instagram Stories right at the top of the News Feed. The ad automatically appears in between your targeted audience’s organic Instagram Stories. They display just like regular stories, except they last only 15 seconds. Just like regular stories, ads are full screen, vertical, and clickable. But unlike regular Instagram Stories that disappear after 24 hours, you choose how long you want to run your ad.

What are some Instagram Story Ad best practices?
