Colorful, unique, dynamic, catchy, impressive, and memorable - this is how people describe Instagram Stories.  It’s a great tool to increase the engagement rate on Instagram.

Instagram Stories are highly effective in lead generation and conversion. They last only for 24 hours but their impact does for much longer.

You can customize your Stories the way you want to catch the attention of your audience. And, Renderforest is here to help you get inspired and create your daily Instagram Stories.

They will give you a great opportunity to interact with your niche in a new and exciting way. We've created several stories to inspire you and show you how easy it is to create them with our editor.

Here's what we've got:

We’ve picked scenes for sales, promotions, and quotes. Let’s see how you can use them to create your own stories.

To create an Instagram Story, you need to sign up or, if you already have an account, sign in to the platform. Then, go to our “Video Templates” library and choose the “Promotional” video template category.

After you select the scenes, they will appear on your dashboard in the order you’ve done your selection. You are free to rearrange them the way you like most, remove or add new scenes.

If you want to announce a special sale or share your bonus coupons, you can pick one of our Sale scenes.

Add your texts and image to customize it. There are 3 ways to add your image file: via URL, from the Media Library, or from your device. The recommended size of the image is 1080x1920px. You can upload your image and crop it with the help of our editor. The text fields have their character limits, so keep your texts short.

From the Fashion category, we’ve picked a product promotion scene which will help you share your new arrivals or the existing products. How can you do it?

This scene gives you an opportunity to share several product images at the same time, and you don’t even need to use external tools to create a photo collage. The recommended size of the images is 1080x1080px.

To create a more interactive story, you can pick a scene with a video holder.
