In January, Instagram announced ads coming to ‘Stories’. Ads in ‘Stories’ help businesses use targeting and reach capabilities that make ads personally relevant to the people they want to reach.

“Today, businesses of every size around the world can start running ads in Stories through the Marketing API, Power Editor and Ads Manager optimised for reach,” the company said in a statement.

“By optimising for reach, you can show your ads to the maximum number of people in your audience and control how often they see your ads. The reach objective for ads in Stories will … be available globally in the next few weeks,” it added.

In January, the photo-sharing app tested ad formats in Stories with 30 global businesses.

Online hospitality service Airbnb ran a series of 15-second video ads in ‘Stories’ to build awareness around its product launch.
