Luckily, there are many third party apps that provide Story templates, so that you can keep your Story game strong.
4 reasons to use Story templates
As mentioned above, it's important to do everything possible stand out in a large sea of Instagram Stories. With Story templates, you'll find many fun and intriguing designs that set you a part from other Stories which will spark the interest of your viewers.
The templates are professionally designed and using them will give you a leg up... compared to other DIY Stories with scribbled writing that's difficult to read. Templates are an easy-breezy way to create high quality content.
3. Brand Recognition
Carry your branding out through your Stories. The more people that see your consistent branding, the more recognizable and memorable your brand will become. The Story feature is another opportunity to make a lasting impression.
Every Story template app has many, many different designs to choose from (some are free, some are not). This provides you with a ton of ideas for Story design that you wouldn't necessarily think of, which is a huge time-saving bonus!
