About this event

Getting the most out of Instagram

Instagram is one of the most used media platforms by craft businesses as it provides direct contact with customers as well as connecting you to retailers, press and curators. In this talk we will go through the features available on the platform – your bio info, main posts, stories, highlight, guides, reels, IGTV as well as tagging and hashtags, the need for strong imagery, film, and copy (the written text accompanying your posts), good scheduling platforms and how you can tell the story of your brand in an engaging and authentic way.
