Just a few months ago, I was terrified of Instagram. After creating an Instagram for my lifestyle blog, I found it so hard to get followers. I made sure I took nice photos, used hashtags, and tried my best to post at least once a day... but after more than half a year of using Instagram I only had 150 followers. I couldn't understand what I was doing wrong. Does this sound like you? This course is what you need!
Now, after a few months of using Instagram I've been offered free products, gotten so many collaboration requests, guest post opportunities, and am able to find design clients by using Instagram.It's been such an incredible journey from where I was just a year ago.Did I mention that I don't have a huge following on Instagram either?
