Instagram Stories (and to a lesser extent, Facebook Stories) have become a major tool in a brand's digital marketing tool kit. However, there are some really ugly Stories out there so I've put together a list of the top 4 apps we use at Sync Digital Solutions for Story-telling.
Want to create video Stories? Then Mojo, a video editing app, is for you.
Videos stand out on Instagram Stories because they're quick, engaging, and fun. But let's be realistic - branded videos can be a lot of work. Luckily, you don't have to stress too much because apps like Mojo make this a walk in the park.
Through Mojo, you'll have access to more than 100 video templates, all of which are 100% editable. There are also hundreds of different text variations to choose from, all of which are fully animated and customizable.
Mojo is also constantly innovating, coming out with new templates and text styles every month.
Canva is a visual editing app that has it all. Whether you’re a beginner or a Photoshop master, you'll be able to find design gems that'll make your life easier.
While many Stories apps focus on photo editing, Canva is unique because it offers a range of different features. Unlike other apps, Canva offers the ability to create custom graphs in just minutes. The process is quick and painless - you can choose from their wide range of templates, select a diagram you want, input your data, and there you go. You now have a premium piece of content, without even having to pester your design team.
Of course, that's just one of many features Canva offers. The app also provides its users with beautifully designed templates, photos, and icons – all of which can be edited straight from the app.
Inshot gives you the ability to perform a variety of different creative tasks from editing videos to adding funky stickers that will make your Stories stand out above the rest.
With this app, you can confidently edit videos straight from your phone, with advanced features that enable you to adjust the speed, merge clips, cut out sections, and even split up the video.
Inshot also lets you sharpen your audio game, with the ability to add your own music, select tunes from a library, and easily insert voice overs. It's a great way to transform your Instagram Stories into interactive content your audience will want to respond to.
