Are you starting to feel like you're being imprisoned 🔒 by your current Instagram grid/feed? Are things starting to feel a little stale and you're not sure what to do? BREAK OUT! 🔑🔓You've got the key! It's easy to get stuck in a rut and keep doing the same things, but if things aren't working and your content is no longer serving you or your audience, it's time to try something new. Here are a few ways you can start shaking things up. 1. Change up your content. We evolve. Our businesses evolve. 🌱 Our audience evolves. Make sure your content is evolving and reflecting these changes as well. 2. Deliver your content in new ways. Posting a lot of graphics and still images? Consider adding animation and video! Hiding behind the camera? Turn the camera around! 🤳 3. Create a short series of posts centered around a specific topic. 🔢 A post or video series can help break you out of your current rut while still providing you with a bit of structure. 4. Freshen up your look! 🎨🖌️ Are your colors, filters, fonts and themes still reflective of your brand's personality? No? Then it's time to get creative! 5. Take your cue from the changing seasons! The holiday season can be a great time to break out of your current rut and share holiday-inspired content with your community! 6. Don't worry! 😌 You can always change things up or change them back! Change can be scary, even when it comes to something as simple as your Instagram grid, but change is part of growth! 🌱🌳 . 🤔💭 Have you ever felt stuck posting in a theme or creating a certain type of content? What did you do to break out? Or are you feeling stuck 😐 right now? ⤵️ . . . . . . . #adobespark #communityovercompetition #contentideas #creativebusinessowner #creativelife #igtips #InstagramCoach #instagramexpert #instagramforbusiness #instagramgrowth #instagramhelp #InstagramInfluencer #instagrammarketing #instagramnewbie #instagramstrategy #instagramthemes #instagramtips #instagramtraining #learninstagram #smallbizsquad #smallbusinessmarketing #socialmediacoach #socialmediaconsultant #socialmediaexpert #socialmediahelp #socialmediamarketingtips #socialmediastrategy #socialmediatips #socialmediatraining

Feeling confused and overwhelmed by all the "do nots," "always," "nevers," and "musts" you hear when it comes to marketing yourself on social media? Eek! 😵 Right?! But what can you do about it? 🤷 And how can you dig through it all and find out what you're really supposed to be doing? . 🌟 . FIRST, REALIZE that you and your business are unique. While there ARE truths and best practices that apply to social media, specific platforms and how we all conduct business on these platforms, your specific social strategy and how you approach that strategy will be unique to you. You can't copy your neighbor's paper on this one and expect to see the same results. ✍️🤷 It just won't work. . 🌟 . SECOND, CUT OUT the noise. Find one, two or a few sources that you trust and click with. Too much information from too many sources can be overwhelming. And conflicting information or misinformation will only lead to confusion 😵 and frustration 🤦 on your end. . 🌟 . THIRD, DON'T BE AFRAID to experiment and try things out on your own if it makes sense for you to do so. Nobody knows your business and your audience better than you! 🙌 If something isn't working, you can always change things ↩️ back. . 🌟 . FOURTH, HIRE A PRO. If you're tired of searching for and sorting through information, tips and strategies, get in contact with someone who knows the things and can help! 🙌 There are people out there that can completely manage your social media for you and people like me who can provide training and help coach you in a strategy unique 🌈 to your business. . 🤔💭 . Have you ever felt confused or overwhelmed by too much or conflicting information you found online? Do you know someone who would benefit from this message?

Today was National Candy Day! 🍬 I'm not a huge candy fan (or a fan on anything sweet really). Salty 🧂😋 is definitely more my thing– chips do not last long in my cupboard, especially since my office is at home! 😂 The one exception is SOUR candy, and we have A LOT leftover from Halloween (the trick-or-treaters mostly grabbed the toys and prizes this year 🙌). Swipe ⬅️ to see me digging into the sour candy leftovers on Halloween– oh and my 3-minute costume. 😂😂😂 . How about you?

"Done is better than perfect." . Now that's not your green light to just go ahead and put out crap content for the sake of getting it out there, but It IS your green light to stop endlessly fussing 🤦‍♀️ with your lighting, poses, filters, captions and whatever else is keeping you from getting your content and message out there. Seriously. Nobody else but you is gonna notice some of those things. They really aren't. All that endless tweaking and adjusting is serving no one–especially YOU. (Are you listening too, Tami? 😂😂😂) .

Struggling to create Instagram content that your community finds valuable? 😖 Stuck in a rut creating and posting the same type of content over and over... 🔁 and over? Wondering what the heck even makes a post valuable? 🤔💭 . Value can be provided in a lot of different ways. You can create posts that educate and inform, entertain, or inspire. And a good mix can keep your community interested and coming back! . 💡 Also remember to make sure that any content you share is 1) relevant to your community in some way and 2) starts a conversation. . ⬇️ Do you struggle when it comes to creating valuable content for your community? . ⬇️ Are you creating a good mix of content for your community to enjoy, or have you been heavily leaning on a particular type of content? . ⬇️ What's your favorite type of content to create and share? . . . . . . . #adobespark #contentmarketing #InstagramCoach #instagramconsultant #instagrammarketing #contentstrategy #instagramtraining #creativebusiness #creativebusinessowner #instagramtips #igtips #nebraska #nebraskabusiness #siouxland #smallbusinessmarketing #onlinecommunity #creativeentrepreneur #socialmediacoach #socialmediaconsultant #multipassionate #polymath #multipotentialite #socialmediastandouts #socialmediatraining #socialmediastrategy #socialmediaexpert #socialmediamarketingtips #socialmediainspiration #workfromhomelife #girlswhocreate

Happy weekend, everyone! 🌟 Remember... community is where you make it! ✨ 🤝 ✨ Offline. Online. Instagram. Facebook Groups. Facebook Pages. Instagram. Twitter. Group chats... etc. 👈 These are all places you can build community. Find the places that are a good fit for you and your audience and 👷‍♀️ start building.

Only 8 AM and already deep into these Friday, long weekend vibes. 😌 🙌 What are you getting up to this weekend? We've had quite a few working weekends lately, so the hubs and I are overdue for some adventuring. 🚙💨 I think we're finally going to hit up @sacaerospacemuseum tomorrow or Sunday. Maybe even the Wildland Safari Park while we're down that way. (Yes, Nebraska has a safari park! 🙌🐃) It's the last weekend for the @tk.starlite.drivein theater this year, so maybe a drive-in movie if anything good is playing. 🤷 Who knows? ⤵️ How about you? . . . . . . . #adobespark #adventureiscalling #fridayvibes #friyay #helloweekend #InstagramCoach #instagramconsultant #instagramexpert #instagramguru #labordayweekend #longweekend #nebraska #nebraskabusiness #playhard #PlayHarder #smallbizlife #smallbizsquad #smallbusinesssupport #smallbusinessowners #socialmediacoach #socialmediaconsultant #socialmediaexpert #socialmediaguru #socialmediastandouts #weekendmode #weekendvibe #weekendvibes #womeninbusiness #workfromhomelife

There are no hacks when it comes to community building. You gotta get in there and put in the work. 👷‍♀️ But the good news is with the right focus, building a community can be a lot of fun! Here are a few community-building "no-hack" tips to get you started. 1. Step outside of your own content bubble. 🌟 Meet others inside of their own communities, and contribute to conversations. 2. Be a connector. 🤝 It's not just about your relationship with individual community members. It's about their relationships with one another as well. Create a space that encourages this connection. 3. Make time to get to know those in your community. ✨ There are a lot of cool people in your space doing a lot of amazing things. Ask questions. Learn. Allow yourself to be inspired. What's currently your biggest challenge 🤔💭 when it comes to building your Instagram community? ⤵️ Share with us below! . . . . . . . #adobespark #communityovercompetition #howtouseinstagram #igtips #instagram101 #InstagramCoach #instagramengagement #instagramexpert #instagramforbusiness #instagramgrowth #instagramguru #instagramhelp #instagrammarketing #instagramnewbie #instagramstrategy #instagramtips #instagramtipsandtricks #instagramtraining #learninstagram #smallbizsquad #smallbusinessmarketing #socialmediacoach #socialmediaconsultant #socialmediaexpert #socialmediaguru #socialmediahelp #socialmediamarketingtips #socialmediastrategy #socialmediatips #socialmediatraining

I love my office, ❤️💻 but sometimes I just gotta break outta there. 🏃‍♀️💨 This morning I was feeling a bit uninspired, so I took an early break and headed to the grocery store. Yes, I'm the ultimate weirdo who actually enjoys grocery shopping 🤪 (anybody else, ANYBODY?) It's actually the only shopping I really care for at all. Oh, except for Christmas shopping. 🎁🛒 Too soon to talk about 🤭😆 Christmas? When you're constantly looking at the same thing each day, it's easy to get into a creative rut. 💤 And if you're trying to create original and interesting content for your social media accounts, being in a creative rut can not only be frustrating, but it can send your productivity plummeting as you beat your head against the wall 🤕🧱 trying to think of anything–ANYTHING– 😫 that will spark a connection with your community. 🤷 Sound familiar? While you may not always be able to escape your office or shop and head to your local grocery store oasis, 🛒🌴😆 there are a couple of things you can do without even leaving Instagram. 1. Keep your Instagram feed feeling fresh and shiny.✨ Follow accounts that inspire you–accounts you want to connect with. Keep your eyes open for new, inspiring peeps to add to your feed. 2. Make time for conversation. Conversation leads to ➡️ connection which can lead to ➡️ inspiration. I can't tell you the number of times I've been chatting with others on Instagram, and have responded with something that has either turned into a post or given me an 💡 idea. Does your Instagram feed currently inspire you? Or does it feel kind of 😕 meh? I would also love to hear ⤵️ what you do AWAY from your workspace that helps to inspire you!

Do you have a question about Instagram? Maybe something you've been embarrased to ask 😳 because it feels like everyone over here seems to know the answer but you? If you're wondering about it, there's likely someone else wondering, too! 🙌 For the next 24 hours I'm taking your questions over in my Stories! 👩‍🏫 Visit my profile @tamiulrich and tap my profile photo to join in, and ask away! Question for you all here: 🤔💭 Has there ever been a time where you wondered about something but were too embarrassed to ask? 😳 What did you do? ⤵️ Did you end up asking someone anyway, or did you comb through Google results looking for your answer instead? . . . . . . . #igtips #instagram101 #instagramalgorithm #InstagramCoach #instagramexpert #instagramforbusiness #instagramgrowth #instagramguru #instagramhelp #instagrammarketing #instagramnewbie #instagramstrategy #instagramtips #instagramtipsandtricks #instagramtraining #learninstagram #nebraskabusiness #smallbizlife #smallbusinessowners #smallbizsquad #smallbusinesssupport #socialmediacoach #socialmediaconsultant #socialmediaexpert #socialmediaguru #socialmediahelp #socialmediastandouts #socialmediatraining #womanownedbusiness #workfromhomelife

As a small business owner, you've likely got a pretty full plate when it comes to your business and marketing for that biz. You've got clients and customers to serve, administrative tasks to handle, your own skill development and education, plus 😵 it seems like you're constantly creating content for either your blog or social. With all that it's easy to understand how community-building fell off your plate or maybe never even made it on there to begin with. But if Instagram (or social media in general) is part of your marketing plan, and I'm guessing it is, then devoting time to community-building activities is important. But, Tamiiiiii, what about the time involved? ⏱️ It takes too much time. I already spend so much time creating content as it is. It does take time. No lie. But building and connecting with community is kind of the name of the game here. I mean, without community, there's nobody for you to create content for. 🤷 Amirite? Instagram may be free to use, but that doesn't mean there's not an investment required, and when it comes to community building, that investment is ⏳ time. It's up to you to decide how much time you can realistically invest, and then use that time wisely. 🦉 You might find that you have to create less content and spend more time driving conversation on that content. Or maybe you find that you're able to devote an additional 15 minutes a day to exploring hashtags that your community is using and engaging with the content you find there. That's the cool thing! It's your time. 💪💥 It's your plan. You have to find something that is doable for you. 🌟 Because if it's not doable, then it's not going to work. But just know that doing nothing at all is for sure the quickest way to seeing no results. Have you been making time for community-building activities on Instagram? 🤔💭 Or has it been all you can manage to just show up and post now and then? ⤵️ Share with us below. There's no judgement here! This is all about motivating and encouraging one another. 🙌🙌🙌 In this crazy, seemingly perfect world of social media, it's always a relief to hear you're not alone in your struggles.

Wahoo! 🙌🙌🙌 Happy Friday! Being an effective community leader and builder is not only about connecting with the individuals in your community. 😀↔️😀 It's about encouraging connection between members and facilitating new connections 🤝 between those you're connected with when appropriate as well. Your followers may have been initially drawn to you and the value you provide, but it's the connection and relationships between your followers that really help create the FEELING ✨ of community. Ever notice how the communities you are a part of online often tend to overlap both within and beyond platforms? 🤔 That's no coincidence. It's because of the relationships you've created with others in those spaces. You probably have people in your community right now that found you and are there as a result of a connection they had with another member. We connect with people. It's what we do. (Even some introverted peeps like me, apparently 🤷😂) As a community leader, it's important to create a space that encourages that connection. Are you part of an awesome community here on Instagram? Is there anyone that is doing an amazing job at creating community that you wanna give a shout-out to? 📣 Is there an account that is a daily "go to" of yours that you'd like share with us? 🤷 Maybe you know someone who would totally dig the atmosphere here? BE A CONNECTOR! 🤝✨ Tag those peeps below, ⤵️ and let them know why! I'll tag a few peeps whose communities I love in the comments as well! . . . . . . . #adobespark #communitybuilding #communityovercompetition #FollowFriday #InstagramCoach #instagramengagement #instagramexpert #instagramforbusiness #instagramgrowth #instagramguru #instagramhelp #instagrammarketing #instagramnewbie #instagramstrategy #instagramtips #instagramtraining #onlinecommunity #smallbizsquad #smallbusinessmarketing #smallbusinessnetworking #smallbusinessowners #smallbusinesssupport #socialmediacoach #socialmediaconsultant #socialmediaexpert #socialmediaguru #socialmediahelp #socialmediastrategy #socialmediatips #socialmediatraining

Part 5 of 5! WHERE 🤷 should you place hashtags? When it comes to placing hashtags on your Instagram posts, you have options. You can include your hashtags in your caption or you can place them in a comment(s) on your post. People sometimes place their hashtags in the comments because they feel it gives their caption a tidier look. Whichever way you choose, Instagram will catalog your post in the same manner. 🙌 Just keep in mind that time is a factor. As mentioned in Part 3, posts are added to hashtag pages in chronological order. Your post’s placement on a hashtag’s page depends on the timestamp of your post, NOT the time the hashtag was added to that post. This is important to consider when placing your hashtags in the comments.💡➡️ If you opt to add your hashtags in the comments, have them copied and ready to paste immediately after your post is uploaded so your content is available for those hashtags as soon as possible. You don't want your content buried when it first arrives 😱 on the scene. You can also place hashtags in your Stories. 🙌 Just like your feed posts, your Stories can be made available on hashtag pages as well. You can add hashtags to your Story with the text tool or by using the "hashtag" sticker. Technically, Instagram will let you add 10 hashtags per slide (only 1 via the sticker), but keep in mind that Stories are one place on Instagram where too many hashtags can look spammy. 🥫👀 As a result, you might hear people suggest hacks like shrinking the text size or hiding hashtags behind stickers or other elements. But hashtags should be easily tappable for users. Remember 💭💡 hashtags are about conversation, and Instagram wants users to be able to connect with others in that conversation. There's also some concern around how many hashtags are working in Stories right now. 🤷 I personally find that one good, relevant hashtag using the hashtag sticker can be effective. That's it! 🙌 Hopefully you’ve learned a bit about Instagram hashtags and how you can better use them to connect and grow! Thank you 🙌 for tagging your peeps, jumping in my DMs, and sharing and saving these posts! What's one thing ⤵️ you learned 💭💡 from this series?

🚀🌕 Still think you can't do it? Back in December, I chose "do" as my word for 2019. 🌟 Today as we celebrate the 50th anniversary of the moon landing, I'm reminding myself of that word again. Do. 💥 Planning is an important part of the process, but there comes a time when we just have to do the thing. Did you choose a word or theme for 2019? 🤔💭 Has that word inspired ✨ and motivated you in your life or business so far this year? Also, how are you celebrating #Apollo50th? 🚀🌕 Did you attend any events or watch any of the specials on TV? NASA streamed the original footage of the moon landing on Facebook and YouTube today and will be airing the moonwalk this evening.

Whoooo! 🤓 Back to work after a long weekend here! Happy Monday to you all! Spent the morning over here in my office sprucing up some content and getting some client work done.

First post of our exploring 🔎 hashtags series to follow soon! . . . . . . . #adobespark #backtowork #BusinessGoals #howtouseinstagram #instagram101 #InstagramCoach #instagramexpert #instagramforbusiness #instagramgrowth #instagramguru #instagramhelp #instagrammarketing #instagramnewbie #instagramstrategy #instagramtips #instagramtraining #learninstagram #mondaymood #nebraska #smallbusinessmarketing #socialmediacoach #socialmediaconsultant #socialmediaexpert #socialmediaguru #socialmediahelp #socialmediamarketingtips #socialmediastandouts #socialmediastrategy #socialmediatips #socialmediatraining

Wahoo! 🙌 It’s time to kick off our “Exploring 🔎 Hashtags” series! Over the course of this series we’ll be covering what hashtags are, how they work, which ones you should be using and more! Ready? 🙌 Let’s get started! Before we can learn to use any tool effectively, we have to understand what that tool is. So today we’re starting with the basics. What is a hashtag, 🤷 anyway? A hashtag is a word or phrase beginning with the " #" symbol. Hashtags are a way of cataloging 📇 content and conversation. On Instagram, when a post is tagged using a specific hashtag, that post appears on a page with other content that contains the same hashtag. These groupings make it easy for users to find similar content that they are interested in. 🔎📱 Users can navigate to these hashtag pages in a couple of different ways. They can tap 👆 on a hashtag they find on Instagram, or they can search for the hashtag by typing it into Instagram’s search 🔎 bar and selecting the hashtag from the list of results. Users can then view both “Top” and “Recent” posts for the selected hashtag. On Instagram, hashtags are vital for businesses, brands and organizations. The right hashtags can help put your content in front of new people who are looking for what you offer or interested in what you have to say. Hashtags can also help you build connections with people in your industry and other businesses in your community. Are you using #️⃣ hashtags when you post to Instagram? Do you consider #️⃣ hashtags an important part of your content strategy or are they often just an 🤔💭 afterthought? Know somebody new to Instagram that could benefit from this post? Help 'em out, and tag 'em (@ username) below! ⤵️ Coming up: 👉 "Why use hashtags?" and "Which hashtags should we use?" . . . . . . . #adobespark #hashtaghelp #hashtag101 #howtousehashtags #howtouseinstagram #igtips #instagram101 #InstagramCoach #instagramexpert #instagramforbusiness #instagramgrowth #instagramguru #instagramhelp #instagrammarketing #instagrammarketingtips #instagramnewbie #instagramstrategy #instagramtips #instagramtipsandtricks #instagramtraining #learninstagram #socialmediacoach #socialmediaconsultant #socialmediaexpert

Likes. ♥️ They're cool. 🤷 There's definitely nothing wrong with them. They're the easiest form of engagement on social, and they simply say, "Hey, I saw this, and I like it. But there are some other REALLY cool post insights beyond the "like" that you should be keeping your eyes 👀 on! Swipe ➡️ the image above to see what they are and what they have to say!

Part 2/5 🔍 If you missed part 1, you can check it out on my profile! Now that we know WHAT hashtags are, we can begin to understand their importance on Instagram. So, 🤷 WHY use hashtags? It’s simple–using hashtags make you a part of the bigger conversation! 💬 Without hashtags, your content would have a difficult time reaching anyone not currently following you. By adding relevant hashtags to your content, you’re adding your message to the table. Each hashtag is an opportunity–an opportunity for you to be heard. But hashtags are also an opportunity to 🎧 listen. You see, using hashtags isn’t just about cramming them all into your post and calling it a day. Using hashtags is about conversation. And that means not just talking but listening as well. So while adding hashtags to your posts is important–HUGE, even, listening to what others are saying is an important way to use hashtags as well. How can you do that? 🤷 Find out what hashtags your target community is using. Check out and follow those tags. Listen to the conversation happening within those hashtags and contribute in meaningful and appropriate ways. While adding the right hashtags to your content helps your community find you, listening to the right hashtags brings you to them! Are you ⤵️ using hashtags to listen as well as post? Thank you to everyone who's brought their peeps into the conversation 🙌 by tagging them in this series!

Part 3! So far we’ve covered WHAT hashtags are and WHY you need to be using them. But... WHICH hashtags 🤷 should you use? This is where things can start to feel a bit tricky, but it’s important to keep it simple! 🙌 There are a few important things to consider when researching and selecting hashtags. Your business. 👩‍💼 Who are you? What do you offer? Your location. 📍 Where do you serve your customers and clients? Are you a local business? Your content. 📝 What is your post specifically about? Your target community. 👥 What other communities are they a part of on Instagram? What hashtags are those communities using and browsing? What would they be typing into Instagram’s search bar in an effort to find what you offer or are posting about? Relevance is key here. Your hashtags should be related to your post, your business and your community. Remember, hashtags are putting you in the conversation. 💬 When you’re contributing to the conversation, it should make sense in some way. If it doesn’t, at best you’ll be overlooked; at worst users may use the 🚫 "Don't show for this hashtag" option or may even report you for spam. Another important factor to consider is the popularity of hashtags or how crowded they are. When searching a hashtag on Instagram you’ll notice that it shows you the approximate number of posts cataloged within that tag. The greater the number, the more popular and crowded the hashtag. Posts are added to hashtag pages in chronological order. As new content is posted using a given hashtag, it is placed at the top of a hashtag page in the “Recent” posts, and older content moves down. ⬇️ The farther down your content drops on a given hashtag page, the less likely it is to be discovered there. Your content can be buried within seconds on some of the most popular hashtag pages, but can remain close to the top for quite some time on some of the less crowded ones. Choosing a mix of hashtags that vary in size, can help you take advantage of the popularity of some of the moderately larger tags while still making sure you remain 🔎 visible. Been struggling with WHICH hashtags to use? What's your biggest takeaway ⤵️ from this series so far?

Happy WORLD 🌎 EMOJI 🤪 DAY! 🎉 Emojis are cute and fun! 😆 And on Instagram, they can be useful as well. Emojis can make your Instagram bio more visually appealing 👀 to users visiting your profile. Emojis can help set the tone 🗣️🎙️ and convey the intent of your written words. They can also invoke specific emotions within the reader of your content. Emojis can visually break up big blocks of text in your Instagram captions, making them more inviting and easier to read! 🔎📜 A bit of restraint is required, though, as too many emojis can actually have the opposite effect, making your caption cluttered. It's important to keep in mind that some emojis and emoji combinations can have alternative meanings–all of which are not G-rated. 😳😂 They can also vary in appearance across platforms as well as brands and types of devices, sometimes not displaying at all. So make sure your written message can be understood without them. Do you 🤔💭 use emojis in your social content? What are some of your most used emojis ⤵️? . . . . . . . #adobespark #Emojis #howtouseinstagram #instagram101 #InstagramCoach #instagramexpert #instagramforbusiness #instagramgrowth #instagramguru #instagramhelp #instagrammarketing #instagrammarketingtips #instagramnewbie #instagramstrategy #instagramtip #instagramtips #instagramtipsandtricks #instagramtraining #learninstagram #smallbusinessmarketing #socialmediacoach #socialmediaconsultant #socialmediaexpert #socialmediaguru #socialmediahelp #socialmediamarketingtips #socialmediastrategy #socialmediatips #socialmediatraining #WorldEmojiDay

Part 4 of 5! If you've been following along with this series, you now know what hashtags are, why you need to be using them and have some guidance on deciding which ones to use. But… HOW MANY hashtags 🤷 should you use? First of all, is there a limit? Yes. Instagram allows up to 30 hashtags per post. So should you use all 30? 🤔💭 When it comes to the number of hashtags you should be using, you might hear some talk out there suggesting varying “magic” numbers or “sweet spots,” but once again, this is something that can be kept very simple. 😌 Using more hashtags means your content is showing up on MORE hashtag pages, in MORE conversations and potentially in front of MORE people. 🙌🙌🙌 In Part 2 of this series I referred to hashtags as opportunities. Instagram is allowing you 30 opportunities to reach interested people outside of your current community with your content. If you can come up with 30 good, RELEVANT tags, use them. 🙌 All of them. And if you’re worried about your hashtags looking too spammy, remember this is Instagram. Hashtag functionality is built into the platform. Instagram users expect to see hashtags here. #️⃣👀 Unlike Facebook where 30 hashtags would look messy and out of place, 30 hashtags on Instagram is commonplace. How many 🤔💭 hashtags are you currently using on your posts? Have you been worried 😟 about using "too many" hashtags? Only 1 more post left in this series! 😲 We'll be wrapping up on Monday!

Feeling 🤦 #instaclueless? So you've taken the plunge and have decided to get your business on Instagram. The only problem is you're not quite sure what to do here. 🤷 I get it. You're suuuper comfortable with Facebook. You've been there awhile. Heck, you just celebrated your 10th Faceversary this year! (Wahoo! 🙌) You've gotten into a groove over there; you know how it works -- well mostly. 🤪 And jumping into something new can be a little (OK -- A LOT!) scary. Just remember, you were a beginner over on Facebook once, too. Think of all you've learned along the way. You can do the same thing here, too! 🙌 I promise, Instagram is not as scary or as complicated as you've built it up to be. My tip 💡 for getting familiar with Instagram? If you don't already have one, set up a personal account for yourself (or even a pet--you'll see a lot of pet accounts over here 🐱). Play around, have fun and explore the platform's unique features in this non-pressure setting. You can then apply what you've learned to your business account--and hopefully have a little fun 😆 there, too! Are you a veteran Instagrammer or new to the game? Maybe somewhere in between?
