If you’ve been following us for any amount of time, you know we truly believe social media and video are the future of marketing. I personally try to keep tabs on the latest tips, tricks, and advice from the pros – along with the current trends. Early January, Simon Harries reached out to me and asked if I wanted to try something new. I’m always excited to hear from Simon or Luke so of course I was eager to test out their new creation. He provided us full access to Storymate for the purpose of this review and recently gave us an exclusive coupon to pass to our visitors if we chose.
While Storymate had yet to go public at the time we reviewed it, it had a lot of things going for it. First, Luke Maguire and Simon Harries are the power team when it comes to social media software. Their track record for successful social media software is unmatched in my opinion. Second, ‘Stories’ are something relatively new in the social media arena. Many marketers and business owners know very little (or nothing) about the function.
What Can Storymate Do For Me?
Storymate is a new software tool that enables you to create professional looking, appealing stories for your Instagram and Facebook. All you need to do is to put your stories together using the easy-to-use cloud platform. This is very easy to do, thanks to the compelling done-for-you templates that includes even music you may want to use. Once you’re done with creating your stories, you can send them to your Instagram and Facebook profiles with a click of a button. This tool can save you time and energy, as well as the high fees of a professional designer.
Instagram and Facebook are all about stories, as everyone loves to watch these short videos! Story posting is on the rise and not showing any sign of slowing down. In fact, it’s been growing 15 times faster than News Feed posting. Facebook and Instagram users have been choosing to upload stories rather than simple feed status updates. Stories are the latest trend in social media. Besides, they appear at the top of your news feed, thus being more eye-catching than regular updates.
…How Does This Concern Me And How Can I Use This In My Business?
As this is the thing that works right now, early adopters will have a huge competitive edge.
- 300 million of the total 500 million users of Instagram check out stories on daily basis.
- 10% of all Facebook users make use of Stories.
- Stories are on a rapidly ascending trend!
Do you need more reasons why Storymate is a valuable tool?
In the past several months, many of the social media platforms have made changes that have changed the ‘reach’ of regular posts. Have you noticed your ‘Likes’ dropping unless you boost the post? Well, the opposite is true for stories. Stories are often displayed front & center when it comes to your audience.
How Does Storymate Work?
Saving time while also making my social media channels look more professional are my main goals. Even better, I prefer to achieve these with ease.
Storymate is as easy as can be:
There are three steps to follow in order to have eye-catching stories that attract a wide audience and lots of interactions:
1. Select one of the built-in templates – there are 25 designs available
2. Add your custom content – upload your images or select some from the built-in library, edit your text, choose your background music and click Render.
3. Post and start converting – The one-click sync will send your story to your Instagram and Facebook Stories.
That’s all! Now all eyeballs are on your Stories!

Storymate is a simple animation creation tool that simply works. It allows you to get eyes on your message and that message across to your audience easily. The platform is simple to use and well designed. I also found no obvious bugs in the platform, which is rare. Storymate, at least for the time being, is very affordable and I’d highly recommend it to anyone planning on promoting their products or services on social media.
