1. Tell Your Story With Pictures
Use Instagram to show how others what it is like to use your products or the benefit of your services, use your stories or real customer stories.
Don’t Be “Salesy”……No one wants to be sold.
Show the benefits of what you have to offer in action.
Starbucks — one of the best brands on Instagram — mastered this concept.
They never talk about price, sales, etc!

2. Make Your Posts Beautiful or Funny
Your Instagram photos should catch people’s eye & inspire them or make them laugh.
Boring & depressing stuff won’t help build your brand.
For me, the funny Instagram accounts, and the ones with the most beautiful pictures are the best!!

3. Don’t Post Everything All in 1 time slot.
You don’t want to overwhelm the photo feeds of your followers — so all they see when they login are your photos! Space out or schedule your posts.
This will lead to unfollows — and lost potential customers.
4. Make Sure Your Handles Are the Same Everywhere.
Using the same username on Instagram, Facebook, Pintrest, Youtube, etc, makes it easy for people to find you — and to tag you in their social media posts.
And the easier the better!
I am Hillary Plauche everywhere!!
Follow Me, I Follow Back!!!
