I don't know about y'all, but I love Instagram - It's my favorite social media platform. I love to talk about it and I love making it easier for others. Some of you have already purchased my eBook, Instagram for the Creative Entrepreneur, and I hope you've found it helpful in growing your Instagram communities. I've recently made some updates (minor layout changes as well as the addition of sections on "giveaways" and "tracking conversions") so be on the lookout for an email from me. I'm sending out the new and improved version this week!
I've heard over and over again from friends within the industry how difficult they find Instagram. Not knowing what to share or when to share it and not being sure how to know if the time you're putting in is helping you drive traffic to your website. I definitely don't have this whole "self-employed boss lady" thing figured out, but Instagram is one subject I do well. In fact, it's almost my entire marketing strategy. While I don't recommend that as a strong marketing plan, I have been able to make it work for me, so starting in April, I will be offering an online e-course on Instagram and how creative entrepreneurs can best use it to grow their businesses.
HOW THIS COURSE WORKS
Because I know how hard it is to shut down and watch a live webinar at 12 PM on a Tuesday afternoon, I have set up this course a little differently. You will receive a 30-minute video to watch at any time that is convenient for you. This not only allows you to be fully present and work at your own pace, but it also gives you the opportunity to re-watch should you need to see something again.
WHAT YOU GET
In addition to the 30-minute video, I'm also providing each attendee with:
- My best tips and secrets for an engaging Instagram account
- 30 posting prompts that any small business owner can adapt to work for them
- A posting schedule that coordinates with the provided prompts
- My favorite apps to spruce up photos and videos
- A PDF of my eBook, Instagram for the Creative Entrepreneur as well as a link for easy, online reading
- 30 day access to a private Facebook group for questions and more tip sharing
WHO IT'S FOR
This course is for any of you who has or is hoping to start a creative business. While I am in the stationery and gifts industry, the content covered is useful to bloggers, interior designers, event planners, photographers, etc.
THIS COURSE WILL COVER:
- Best photo taking practices
- Ways to create consistency in your feed
- The ins and outs of "hashtags"
- Ways to promote your Instagram account
- Tracking conversions
- Instagram Etiquette
- Posting prompts and schedule
DATES & PRICING
The first course will be sent out Thursday, April 16th and the 30-day private group will be available April 16th through May 14th. The price of the e-course is $50. If you have already purchased the E-Book and would like to be part of the course, shoot me an email and I will send you a coupon code!
I'm opening registration to Shop Talk members first and I'm keeping the class size very small, only 20 participants, so we can really take advantage of the private Q&A group. I want to get to know each of you and tailor content to best meet your needs. I will be opening registration to everyone on Monday, April 6th so don't wait to sign up.
If you have any questions at all please do not hesitate to ask! :)
