March Challenge: How to Use Instagram for Business

how to use instagram for business (+ 5 mistakes you might be making) |

Have you been working on the March Challenge? I never announced it on here because there are only so many hours in the day and things have been cray cray in a good way around here. But I did announce it on Youtube, and if you missed it - it's to work on your business Instagram account!

I don't consider myself to be an Instagram expert by any means, though I do love me some Instagram (you can check out my accounts here and here) so I brought on a social media / Instagram expert to help answer all of our questions!

Check out my interview with Stephanie Gilbert of Small Talk Social at the bottom of this post. It was super informative and inspiring, and I'm sure that every single one of you will take something home from the video. Here are a few important points from our chat:

1. Make sure your business Instagram account is public, not private!

2. Use hashtags (the right way).

3. Take advantage of your bio space.

4. It's about engagement, not followers.

5. It's not all about you.

Stephanie has a course coming out soon called Pimp Your Profile, which you can get at a discounted pre-order rate right now. I am definitely going to take the course!  Stephanie really knows her stuff, as you'll find out in our interview, so I can only imagine how helpful and valuable her course content will be.

Check out our video below, and go take some pics for your Instagram! :) Happy Sunday!
