Instagram Stories explained

How do I know when the Story is going to expire? 

There’s a countdown timer at the bottom of each live Stories post. 

What happens once a Story expires? 

Once the Story has expired, the original image will be replaced by a ‘Story Expired’ message. However, you’ll still be able to see the user, impressions, and final EMV for the post. We recommend logging in each day to ensure you are capturing the content before it expires.

I have a brand ambassador program, can I include Stories based rewards? 

Yes! Stories are extremely popular amongst certain audiences and are definitely a more optimal UGC outlet for certain products. We encourage you to consider adding a Stories-based reward to your existing brand ambassador program. Reach out to your dedicated Client Strategist for getting reward fulfillment setup. Below is an example of a brand ambassador program landing page that includes specific rewards for Stories and TikTok.
