Swipe Up! 5 Examples of Instagram Stories Ads with Strong Call-To-Actions

Sharing is caring!

Instagram stories are a brilliant tool for capturing consumers’ attention and encouraging them to take action with a simple swipe. Unlike regular ads on Facebook and Instagram feeds, Stories ads are full-screen, meaning there is not a single other distraction for a split few seconds. 

Instagram users do have the option to skip your ad, so the window of opportunity to really capture their attention is brief – the first few seconds are crucial. Here are five examples of stories ads that clearly highlight their unique offers and call-to-action to persuade users to take action.
