➖ It must be done in the highest possible definition
➖ Lighter color palettes work better than darker ones
➖ You should be making use of hashtags in the story itself
➖ Research the hashtags before hand and see if people are watching them or not (this may take some trial and error to get it just right)
➖ Ask a question, or use one of the sliders
➖ It must have sharing qualities, make people want to share it!
