Attentive’s new list growth tool leverages our signature “two-tap” sign-up technology within Instagram Stories to help businesses quickly grow their text messaging subscriber lists through a new channel.

Digital marketers are always looking for new ways to grow and engage their social media following and drive more engagement between their audience and brand. One social media channel, Instagram Stories, which is used by half a billion people daily, houses the most engaged users on the platform. And now, Attentive is making it easier than ever to tap into this audience.

As social distancing guidelines extend and people are spending more time at home, they’re staying connected through social media. Verizon has reported a 20% week over week increase in web traffic, and overall social media consumption has increased 40% within the 18-35 age demographics.

Now more than ever, if Instagram isn’t part of your brand’s social strategy it should be, specifically Instagram Stories: in the last few weeks Instagram Story impressions have increased 21%.

Whether you’re working with influencers who have a devoted and highly engaged audience, a marketer who’s building an organic social strategy, or utilizing sponsored Instagram Stories, growing your subscriber list with Instagram allows you to better acquire, retain, and interact with your mobile audience—driving more revenue for your business.

Attentive has been a great partner, and we’re very excited about this new channel to grow our subscribers. The high opt-in rates make Instagram Stories Swipe-up a necessity in our overall list growth strategy.
