I don’t know if you know these but the first thing you see when you go on someone’s Instagram profile is the name, bio and then covers which means within the impression someone gets of a profile you have a few seconds to capture that impresion and to convert it into an actual Instagram follower.
Failing that might be deadly for your Instagram account. So how do you create an instagram story highlights cover?
In this article you will learn the most simple way to create an Instagram story highlight cover from just your phone.
The app I am using is Canva. You may already know it from previous blogs. There is a free version that you can use to create your cover.
So just go on Canva and type in the search box” Instagram story highlight cover” they already have a lot of templates that you can actually choose from, you can edit just a little bit and you will have your cover ready in a few minutes.
For example, let’s say that you are a pastry shop and you are a bakery and you create all sweet things when when you click on muffin, you already have this beautiful image. If these colors are not exactly what your branding colours are you can change them by clicking on “ colours”. If you don’t really want to use that image, remove that click on the plus sign, then on illustration and you can search for another muffin, by just typing it in the search box. You can create it like this for each individual highlight cover that you have. Click done and it will be automatically saved to camera roll.
Now how can you use that image and create a highlight cover.
Click the plus sign on your Instagram profile, select a random story click on next,type in the title, add the story. Then click “ Edit highlight”, edit cover, click save and voila, you have an Instagram story highlight cover.
So this is how you do it, it is that simple, you can literally create those in 1 or 2 minutes. If you know someone on Instagram but doesn’t have highlights on you should definitely share this article with them so they can update their Instagram game. I hope I was useful with this tip. Stay safe, stay healthy and remember that a video a day keeps the doctor away.
