4 Types of Accounts You Should Follow On Instagram?!?

4 Types of Accounts You Should Follow On Instagram?!?

There seems to be two major strategies on Instagram as far as following different accounts go… First, the follow/unfollow strategy. Here’s the gist of it, you follow a bunch of accounts in your target audience i.e. if you’re a sports blogger you’d follow a bunch of 18-35 year old men who are fans of the teams and sports you write about. Then everyone who doesn’t follow you back, you return the favor by unfollowing them. Second, you want everything to…

I signed up for a trial of Social Media University from Rachel Pederson. She walks you through the different steps she took to become a successful Social Media Manager. In the course she gives tips and strategies about social media managing as well as the different social media platforms. Naturally me learning about Instagram I watched that section first. It was pretty informative. The part that I was like…”What? How did I not know about this?” Was when she mentioned…

I Shut Down The Insta Auto-Bot…

A couple posts ago I wrote about using an auto-bot for one of my accounts. Well, I decided to shut it down early. I know what you’re thinking…didn’t really give it much of a chance did ya? Here’s the thing. It has taken me to long to learn this about Social Media…it’s social. An auto-bot takes all the social out of it.

4 Things Learned From Not Hustling On Instagram…

This past weekend Kate and I went on a relaxing, fun, trip to St. George, Ut with some of her family. While I was able to write a blog post I wasn’t able to get a lot done as far as Instagram goes. I stopped commenting, liking, and DMing from Friday to Monday and instead put the phone away for relaxation (other than a couple photos I posted). I didn’t think much would happen because of it, but the amount…

When I restarted my Instagram account my goal was to do something that stood out.

Buuut to be honest it’s tough to post aesthetically pleasing photos that are…

How Much Are You Hustling On Instagram??

How Much Are You Hustling On Instagram??

It’s common sense…the better you want to be at something the more time you have to spend doing it. Kind of like Malcolm Gladwell’s 10,000 hours theory. He says that it takes 10,000 hours of hard work, practice and apprenticeship (plus natural abilities) to become great at something. His examples were Bill Gates and the Beatles, both were able to practice their crafts, a lot of hours, at young ages and because of it they became greats. It’s the same…

Do You Even Plan??

Do You Even Plan??

At my work we had to take this “Strength Finders Test.” In the test it tells you, your top five traits which are supposed to tell how to better communicate with your co-workers. I’ll admit it’s pretty cool to learn a little more about yourself and the people you work with. Anyway one of my traits was “achiever,” which means that I have this “constant need for achievement.” Due to this need, most achievers hate disorganization, and one way they…

Going All In…

When first starting your blog/vlog/YouTube channel/business/etc. when it comes to social media, I’ve learned you should find really focus on one platform at least in the beginning (maybe two if you’re really good). You really need to find out where your people are. Where the people who would actually follow your journey or business. It might take some time and energy to figure out which platform your crowd congregates but once you figure it out…you need to go all in….
