Instagram For Business Beginner and Intermediate Workshop

Instagram For Business Workshop - Above and Beyond Marketing Strategies

With just over 1 billion monthly active users, Instagram is a storytelling powerhouse for your business.  There are so many simple ways to engage, collaborate, and build meaningful relationships on the platform. Engagement and consistency are the keys to success.

This workshop is for the beginner and intermediate user.  You’ve had the app for a while and are comfortable posting to your feed and the occasional Story, but now you’re ready to take things to the next level.  

 

 

 

In this 2-hour workshop, I will teach you:

  • Productivity tips.
  • Design techniques for the non-designer.
  • How to craft a compelling bio and captions.
  • How to create remarkable Stories people will watch.
  • Content ideas that will showcase a blend of your personal and business side.
  • How to develop a hashtag strategy to attract the RIGHT people and discover new content.

Stories is the most important feature on Instagram.   Parent company Facebook, announced earlier this year based on usage, “Stories are the way most people will share and digest content going forward.  Engagement is 2-3x higher than the feed.”

You will leave this workshop with a thorough understanding of how to create Stories that tell a story.

Each guest will receive printed class notes and one lucky winner will receive a copy of “Contagious” by Jonah Berger!

 

Recent research shows:

– 80% of brands have an account.

– Engagement with brands is 10% higher than on Facebook.

– 60% of Instagram users follow brands, 70% say they first learn about a product or service on the platform, and 75% are likely to take action after seeing an ad.
