However, if you wish to improve your business, knowing your customers’ opinions about your products and services is essential. Plus, if you’re already benefiting from some Social Media Marketing Services in Pakistan, considering investing some more bucks and efforts in Instagram Stories  because 2020 is all about working digitally.

The Millenials and Gen Z have been in talks because they’re famous for not shying away from giving reviews and feedbacks, be it negative or positive. Sounds scary? Yes, it does. But here’s the tip – Use the Feedbacks at your benefit with Instagram Stories.

Instagram Stories get 15x engagement, as compared to the Feed, and the reason behind is the sense of urgency which stories create.

All while breaking the bars of collecting and advancing customer feedback.
