I had Facebook for a number of years now and I can say I’m pretty confident and frequent user but Instagram is all new to me - Big Enigma…
Last year my almost 15 year’s old son told me to get an account, which I did - somehow, I never got hooked on it. I didn’t really get the hashtags, just in general not my cup of tea….until few days ago when I started learning about marketing, and apparently the Instagram is the way to go.
I wasn’t really keen on the idea but there is pretty strong evidence that Instagram promotes business… I need some promotion for my amazing handmade, leather baby shoes. It can’t be that hard right? So, I opened an Instagram business account few days ago and randomly chosen few hashtags... Awesome, not that hard….
A couple of hours passed and my girlfriend tells me my Instagram doesn’t look right – something wrong with the hashtags… hmmm,,, apparently you need to know how to use it - really?
I just randomly have chosen few hashtags such us baby shoes/ toddler shoes/ leather shoes/handmade…. This is how much I know about Instagram… so much to learn.
Well, I’m a bit smarter now – I know when you use the correct hashtag you'll be able to tap the hashtag to see a page that shows all photos and videos people have uploaded with that hashtag. it sounds complicated but once you start using it makes sense...
That evening I spent few hours to watch you tube tutorials on Instagram… Looks like I've learnt few things:
