Day 1 – Polls

Today is all about Polls! 

Polls are one of the *easiest* ways for your followers to interact with your Instagram Stories.

Here are some simple do’s and don’ts when it comes to posting polls:

  • Keep the question clear and easy-to-answer.
  • Make sure the choices are something that can be easily decided within seconds.
  • Keep the poll within the center of your story to avoid accidental votes.


  • Make the question too long or too difficult to answer.
  • Don’t make the choices too hard to choose between.
  • Place a poll close too close to the edges (or else risk accidental votes).

Tips & Hints

  • If you don’t want people to vote on a negative option, place two positive options “yes” and “absolutely”
  • Share the final poll results with your final thoughts – were you surprised? Was the vote split? Was it a landslide?

Today’s challenge is to add a simple poll to your Story. But make sure you are following the do’s and don’ts listed above.
