Wow tomorrow will see us kicking off the Instagram Challenge at Business Business Business, so I thought it was time to share a few tips to getting started on Instagram for those who may not have started or are just starting out!

  1. Download the app from the app store, play store or by visiting on your phone.
  2. Choose a user name that people will find you on I suggest to clients we look at either using the brand name or their name if they wish to be an expert.
    1. For me we use @lindareedenever
    2. Media Connections is @mediaconnetions
  3. Pick a profile pic that people will know you for. For businesses, I suggest logos and people a really good headshot of you, so when people are searching they can say YES that is XXX, who I am looking for.
