Some of you may remember my chat from a few years back with Sharon Fain, and her partner KC, of the Academy of Handmade, which is still in our top ten of most downloaded episodes. Sharon and I have become pretty good friends over the past few years, and we’ve watched our businesses grow quite a bit.
One area that Sharon has really grown a lot is with her Instagram account, over 10,000 followers in a little more than a year. This had a huge impact on me recently because I realized I was not putting enough effort into this medium, and it was time to make a change. By implementing Sharon’s strategies, I was able to increase my own account by 30% in a month. I know that I could have probably gotten further if I had spent more time on it, but I do have a podcast to run.
I know a lot of you have been wanting to know more about how to navigate Instagram successfully, and that inspired me to invite Sharon on to talk about the subject. She spares no time getting right into the nitty gritty of how she made it happen for herself, and I’m sure many of you will walk away with renewed vigor to attack this visual medium. I can’t wait to hear your own success stories in the near future.
As a bonus, Sharon is offering a discount on her Instagram review service for all the listeners. If you feel like you need an IG overhaul, and you want Sharon to give you some tips on how to improve your account, head on over to other business, Right Brain PR and use the code FRESH15.
