  • Why Instagram is such an important tool for your creative business
  • Why it’s NOT about the numbers…really!

  1. You CAN beat the algorithm…you just have to work WITH the algorithm (and not against it!)
  2. Work to serve the audience you ALREADY HAVE and stop worrying about gaining followers! Get to know them and build relationships with them through REAL engagement and the algorithm will help you gain more followers naturally! Happy followers can be your biggest asset!!
  3. Get your face on camera with direct-to-camera stories! It might feel weird at first, but it’s great way to gain trust with your followers.
