Why Bloggers and Influencers Need to Start Creating IG STORY Filters

Instagram Story Filters are all the rage right now and for very valid reasons: they make your stories look way more fun, creative, beautiful, and the part that not a lot of people know yet: they will give you followers!

Yes, you read that correctly! Creating your own IG story filters, or Augmented Reality filters (AR) will give you followers and help grow your account! At least that’s what happened to me. If you’re a blogger or influencer, and you’ve been wanting to grow your Instagram account, I’ll share 5 reasons why you need to get on Spark AR asap!

Why Bloggers and Influencers Need To Start Creating IG Story Filters

1. You Will Gain Followers

I gained at least over 500 followers in just a couple of weeks. I know that number doesn’t seem a lot, but for someone who hasn’t gone up in numbers no matter how pretty my content is, gaining 500+ followers is a huge deal! My filters have accumulated 2+ million impressions, and thousands of people see and use my filters daily! The more visibility you have on the app, the better chances of you to gain new followers.

2. It’s a great way to promote your brand/products

Every time somebody uses your filter, it’s like free advertising for you because your profile is linked to your filter. New people can easily access your profile when they click on the upper left corner of an IG story using your filter. With that in mind, you can create filters that promote products like your Lightroom Presets or luts, which is actually what I did. I even made my own daughter a filter because I know my followers who follow me and my family closely will enjoy it. And again, if people love your filters, they will share it and talk about it on their IG stories! Try my filters today!

Spark AR made it very easy to get started on creating these filters especially for people like me who have zero knowledge on anything Augmented Reality, coding, and stuff. They have guides, tutorials, even sample effects so you can easily understand the workflow of creating different types of filters, and from there be able to create your own. Also, when things start to get really confusing, YouTube it! There are so many great FREE resources out there if you just know how to search for them. If you code or write scripts, the more fun you’ll have!

5. It’s Fun!

Once you get the hang of it, creating filters can be addicting because it’s so fun! I also think the addiction comes from the high of seeing your follower count grow every day. Below is a little chart of my follower growth. Notice how I pretty much had a flat line at the beginning of the month, but that line started rising the day my first IG story filter got approved. :) I’m telling you, it works!

And there you have it! The 5 reasons why you need to get on SPARK AR right now! Is this something you want to get into? Are you excited to create your own filters?

If you’re a blogger or influencer, and you want to get started on creating your own IG Story filters, but don’t have the time (or patience haha) to learn the software, hit me up and we can talk prices!
