1. SHARE YOUR MORNING ROUTINE
How do you choose to start your day? Share it with people. Yes, this is something they actually like to know. Is it preparing your coffee? Is it taking your morning supplements? Is it sitting outside writing in your gratitude journal? Show your people how you get your day started.
2. WHAT DO YOU LOVE?
Share what you love. Do you love to ride your Peloton? Do you take a walk every day? Do you love to organize or clean? Do you love to craft? Do you like to zoom with your friends?
3. YOUR SERVICE
This is where you want to share your passion in your job. How do you help people? How do you roll out the red carpet? How do you make your customers feel special?
4. DAILY HAPPENINGS
Regardless of what you are doing throughout the day, share it. People are watching. Yes they want to see you shampoo your puppy. They want to see you get groceries from Insta-cart. They want to see you create a graphic. Use stories as a way to document your day no matter what it is. Show up!
It doesn’t always have to be something you sell, in fact it should’t be. Influence us. What products have you found that you love? Do you have a skin care product you love? What protein to you take? What tools do you use for your business? Share what you love, why you love it and tell me where can I get it?
6. HELPFUL TIPS
If you have a great or easy way of doing something, share it! Give me all your tips. There is tons of things I have no clue how to do and you do. Share them with me. I want to see how you create your happy mail? Tell me how you organize your office? Share with me how you fall asleep fast or organize your documents? I might be on Instagram but I don’t know all the things. All of you do.
7. POST CONTENT
This is one of the best ways to send traffic to you. Did you upload a You Tube video? Share it. Did you do a blog post? Share it! Did you do a podcast? Let me know sister, I wanna listen. Share a piece of what you talked about and get people curious.
We are nosey by nature. Yes we want to know what you know or what’s happening. That is why we lurk around Instagram. Is something happening? Do you have an event or vacation coming up? Fill us in.
9. ALL ABOUT THE LOCALS
Highlight where you go and local favorites. I constantly share with my followers my favorite places, hotels I love, blow out salons and restaurants. You want local business. In turn they will highlight you. This is an awesome way to promote connections.
I mean this is easy. Find a quote, talk about it. Recreate it. Post it. There are a million ways for you to share sayings and quotes. You will find lots of these on my Instagram account. Check it out.
11. PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT
This is where people get a little intimidated. Its hard to share things you are going thru but fact is when we go thru something, we grow. I thought long and hard about my journey and issues with breast implant illness and whether or not I should share it. But fact is what you learn on your journey is always something that can benefit someone. Some of you maybe private and that is OK. Just keep the details basic and tell your audience to feel free to DM you for the more in depth questions. When you share things that can benefit your audience, you can build authenticity and trust.
12. CURRENT EVENTS
Now my advice on this way is to stay away from topics that can just cause back lash but definitely touch on things to show how you are taking part or what you are doing.
13. NATIONAL DAY OF CELEBRATION
We live in world where we celebrate EVERYTHING and personal I love it! Whether it is national donuts day, nation pets day, or even self care day, there is a day you can share some fun and a smile. Find reasons to make people smile!
Now this takes balance. You don’t want to get on Instagram and be the whoa is me girl. People don’t want to follow someone who always has something wrong or victim mentality but you definitely can touch on things that you are struggling with. Everyone is going thru something. Make is something you can learn from and help others learn too.
15. WHERE ARE YOU ONLINE?
Where else can people find and connect with you? Do you have everything else set up? Here is a list to help you get started there too.
Do you have a new product or service happening soon? Maybe a new website, a new you tube video? Build up the excitement for what is happening next. I love to do a countdown when I am traveling or when we are launching something new. People love to get excited and countdown with you. Get people engaged in what is going on with you.
17. BEHIND THE SCENES
Show the process of what you do through out the day. People truly love it. Whether you are doing happy mail, mailing a package, doing coaching calls, working out, changing wax or redecorating a room, its always fun to see how you do your thing during the day.
18. PRODUCT SHOWCASE
Instagram is perfect for those products you love. Show off why you love what you do. Style things just so to give people ideas or event try flat lays. Really take a minute to decide what you are going to do when you show products. It will be worth it and people will keep coming back to check out your ideas.
