10 Top Instagram Stories Templates (Vertical Video) for After Effects

Grab attention with your Instagram Stories by using templates that look great and help you engage with your audience; We've gathered together a few of our favourite Instagram templates, especially designed for vertical video, to help you out. 

First, here are our top recommended tips to consider when you're creating your stories:

  1. Be consistent—your style should be recognisably you, every time. Using templates can really help with this.
  2. Be concise—you've only got a short time to get your point across, so make the best use of that time that you can and keep your messages uncomplicated.
  3. Use hashtags—don't clutter your post with too many, keep them relevant to your potential audience.
