Instagram Stickers That Enhance Engagement on Your Real Estate Stories

Posted by Brian Lim on Jun 18, 2019 4:00:00 AM

One of my favorite scenes in one of my all-time favorite movies is from Office Space, when the main character, Joanna, gets in trouble for her lack of flare. If Joanna was a real estate agent and used Instagram stories, the conversation may have gone a little more like this…

Stan: “We need to talk about your Instagram stories”

Joanna: “Really? I…I post 1 story today”

Stan: “Well…Ok, 1 story is minimum, and you can’t post about your neighbor’s cat. Ok? Now, you know, it’s up to you whether or not you want to just do the bare minimum or uh…well…like Brian for example, posts 8 stories a day with stickers and GIFs, and a terrific smile.”

Joanna: “So you want me to post more stories?”

If you’re like most real estate agents, you might be doing the bare minimum on your Instagram Stories, just like how Joanna was with her flare. There are so many fun and attractive tools that you can add to them to enhance the viewers experience and increase engagement on Instagram. Instagram stickers can be found by tapping on the "smiley face post-it" icon when editing your story.

In this article, I will list the relevant stickers that you can add to your Instagram stories to increase engagement with potential real estate leads. Real estate agents should use the donation, quiz, countdown, question, poll, emoji slider, location, and hashtag stickers to add flare to posts, gain insight, and have fun with your audience.
