I’m predicting you’ve made at LEAST one of these Instagram mistakes in your lifetime...
That’s right... since Instagram has launched we have all been on an independent journey to learn how to post and attract the most engaged audience possible... but what we don’t realise is, that we have all probably experienced at least ONE of these in our Instagram lifetimes.
𝐘𝐨𝐮 𝐝𝐨𝐧’𝐭 𝐩𝐨𝐬𝐭 𝐚𝐭 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐫𝐢𝐠𝐡𝐭 𝐭𝐢𝐦𝐞 - Isn’t it funny that time matters. Social media has allowed us to adapt and maintain an audience that’s, you know it, international.

𝐘𝐨𝐮 𝐢𝐠𝐧𝐨𝐫𝐞 𝐲𝐨𝐮𝐫 𝐚𝐮𝐝𝐢𝐞𝐧𝐜𝐞 - Have you ever sent an Instagram business a DM and been ignored? Same. That’s why I don’t buy from them anymore...
𝐘𝐨𝐮 𝐡𝐚𝐯𝐞 𝐧𝐨 𝐭𝐡𝐞𝐦𝐞 - Surprisingly, visuals matter. If you nail your visual content, you will attract more consumers as 60% of people follow and purchase from accounts with great visual content.
