“Sue B. has been working with Instagram for over 8 years. She started out by basing her work on her case study with a retail store she had on Cape Cod. The demographic being “anyone who wants to make money online,” while it’s getting older and older.”
“I have a simple strategy to get you 100,000 followers on Instagram. That’s right, 100,000 followers. It’s so effective, it didn’t just help me get 100,000 followers. Heck, it got me even over 200,000 followers. Today, I’m going to break down my Instagram strategy that took me from zero to 290,000 followers.”
“Instagram’s filters and editing tools can help you produce great-looking content but using native tools exclusively often means your content looks just like everyone else’s. These third-party content creation and design tools can help your Instagram stories, reels, and posts stand out.”
The days of thinking short-form videos are just a fad are gone. So don’t wait to hit record because you think another content trend is around the corner. The truth is that there *is* another trend around the corner, but that trend doesn’t matter today.
The creators who build their dream businesses (on a solid foundation of an email list) are the ones who take action on what’s working now. These are the creators you see posting hilarious, thought-provoking, and relatable content that’s cultivating a relationship with their audience.
And you get to be one of them!
Make sure to build out your email list as you’re growing your online audience, so you can feel confident in the longevity of your creator career.
