- 1. SOCIAL MEDIA MARKETING INSTAGRAM & PINTEREST
- 2. INSTAGRAM Photos and #hashtags - no links. (Links can be placed in your bio only.) Your profile should contain the information on how to reach you, such as a URL and why people should reach out. Use a few #hashtags in post, then later you can comment on your own post with more #hashtags. Tag fans or friends in pictures or comments to generate more exposure. Instagram is less professional, more social. Posting photos like pets, funny photos, etc. can drive more engagement. Engage with people who comment on your photos. Use photo apps like Diptic, Word Swag, PicFX to improve the quality of you photos or to add information to them.
