Boo boo, do you have questions about Instagram?

  • Does my grid need to be pretty?
  • How can I get people into my store by posting on social?
  • Is it possible to get on the algorithm’s good side?

Look, I understand that running a business is hard. Add in the ever-evolving social media aspect, and things can get a little frustrating!

I recently attended the Thriving Stylist Tribe live event, hosted by Britt Seva, where stylists asked me some of their burning questions on the hot topic of Instagram, and I wanted to pass my answers along to you.

*Basically, the flash fire question party was in full effect, and I want you to join in on the fun!*

>>You have questions. I have answers.<<

If the following answers helped you in any way, but you’re still looking for more, send me your questions in a DM on Instagram and I’d be happy to include them in a future Q&A post!

How do I reach two audiences with one Instagram account?

Determine how much income you’d like to bring in from each sector and apply that percentage to the amount of times you post for each intended audience.

For example, if you are a hair stylist and want half of your income to come from education and half to come from clients physically sitting in your chair, then split up your weekly posts 50/50.  

This will show that you’re an authority in BOTH fields and will drive more customers.

How important is it to have a pretty Instagram feed?

If you had asked me this question in 2016, you would’ve heard me say that Instagram was meant to look like a pretty magazine with curated photos so people knew who you were instantly.

Now, however, I believe that people want to see real moments. And I believe that showing up and showing yourself is much more important than a flawless grid.

>>Prioritize authenticity over perfection and people will notice.<< 

How much of my personal content do I share?

There is no right or wrong answer here. Rather, it all depends on what you’re willing to share.

Something I’ve noticed from my own experience is that personal content drives engagement far more than business content. So, my advice is to share who you are and what you do in whatever way you’re most comfortable with.

How do I stand out on Instagram when everyone is posting the same thing?

Don’t overthink it, boo boo!

>>There is absolutely ZERO original content anymore.<<

That’s why you have to be yourself and put your own spin on things.

If you want to set yourself apart from the crowd, remember the three M’s:

  • Message: You and I might say the exact same thing, but it’ll resonate differently with others based on our unique perspectives.
  • Messenger: Based on that unique perspective, there are people that need to hear it from you and people that need to hear it from me.
  • Medium: You might be really good at writing captions, while I excel at making videos. Either one is great!

*In other words, in order to stand out, you gotta do you!*

>>It is my goal to make the impossibilities possible for YOU.<< 

One way I do this is by providing group coaching within the membership community of Social Curator. I take answers just like the ones above and provide simple answers AND done-for-you solutions.

*In other words, I’ll provide the loving kick in the pants that your business needs!* 

If you’d like a personal cheerleader, a fierce community of fellow business owners, and MUCH MORE, join the waitlist to be the first to find out when the doors to Social Curator will open for enrollment next!

I wouldn’t say we were business nerds but my husband just sent me a Slack message asking me to call him.

If you need me, just follow the trail of empty La Croix cans around my house.
