It’s funny really, but the number one thing I get asked about as a business owner is Instagram. I’ve flown all over the country to speak on the subject and to help others “crack the Instagram code.” There’s just so much to one silly little app that can really get into our heads and mess with us. If we’re being honest, most of us are addicted to Instagram (while also acknowledging that the app itself makes us feel “not enough.”) But don’t worry, I’ve heard your cries loud and clear, your questions have resounded in my mind and heart and I’ve got a few really special things coming up for you to help answer every little question you might have on the app!
The thing is, I truly (in my heart of hearts) believe that the app isn’t about being popular, it’s about being profitable. Popular doesn’t pay the bills so if we, as business owners, are spending a ton of time curating a feed for our brand, we need to make sure that our efforts are paying off. The biggest mistake I see made? Entrepreneurs using their Instagram accounts in feeble attempts to sell – in fact, the number of straight up sales pitches I see on the app makes me cringe. Instagram should not be your pitch, instead it should be the handshake. What do I mean by that? People need to know you, like you, and trust you before they will ever hire you or buy something from you. If every post is a feeble attempt to sell to them, they will simply move and keep scrolling.
So what do I have in store for you? The good news? I have an entirely FREE Seven Day Challenge for all Instagram users! If you’re feeling stuck, frustrated, if you’re hashtagging your way into oblivion or if you’re at a standstill with 600 followers. Each day of the challenge I’ll be sending you prompts, tips, tricks, and strategies that will help you see results fast! I want you to stop joining in the shouting match of social media and start to whisper directly to the people anxiously awaiting your messaging. If this sounds like something you’re all in for (I hope you are!) Click the link below and as soon as the challenge goes live on June 8, you’ll be a part of it! (Oh and did I mention that at the end of the week, you and I get to hang out LIVE and I’ll answer all your Instagram questions? Yup, it’s going to be AWESOME!)
Have an Instagram question? Comment below and I’ll do my best to answer it in the challenge!
