53 Instagram Poll Questions to Engage Your Followers

Google+ Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

It’s great if you just want to increase how many followers you have on your Instagram account. However, a high engagement rate indicates that you are sharing valuable content that people are paying attention to. Moreover, they interact with your content, which is the equivalent of getting gold stars in school. 

More engagement means growth, which in turn, leads to a bigger audience. 

One way to naturally connect with your followers and get them engaging is through Instagram Story Questions, Quiz, or Poll questions. 

The poll sticker on Instagram lets your followers choose either ‘yes’ or ‘no’. So, it’s best for asking very straightforward yes/no questions or having them choose between two options. 

Alternatively, you can use the Quiz sticker to give them some multiple choice answers to pick from. However, you’ll need to highlight one as correct. So, just be sure to let your followers know that there is no right answer but that you had to put one in. 

Now, what Instagram poll questions can you ask? Well, we’re glad you are wondering.
