How to use the Instagram poll feature in stories to increase your engagement.

Last year, Instagram added a polling feature to stories and, as I sat there trying to figure out how to use Instagram polls for my business, it dawned on me. Not only can I use Instagram polls to find out what most of my followers want to see or what content they liked best, I could use it during "holidays" to increase viewership to my blog or a monthly promotion.  

To put this thought to the test, I did a few polls asking simple questions to see if people would respond.  To my surprise, the interactions happened much quicker than I actual thought they would and resulted in more comments than "likes!"
