Using Instagram To Its Full Potential

 I just stared to get active on Instagram last month.. Every Summer sales in the shop slow down, even ebay, facebook and etsy have been  sluggish this summer, so I decided to expand my horizons adding Instagram to my shop portfolio..  Logging onto Facebook one day a post from Jill Newman of JunknLove appeared on my timeline.  ” Are you using Instagram to it’s full potential to build your brand recognition and grow your following? ” Jill was offering a workshop and or  private Instagram tutoring the timing was perfect!  I had dabbled myself but didn’t quite understand the entire process.

Instagram is filled with some  awesome photos, but mine were lacking, I had no idea how everyone got those crisp clear shots.. Nothing I did worked.. Thanks to Jill, I learned about apps and enhancements, now I don’t feel like such a photographic failure.. I am still in process of learning but I think my pics have improved,  I continue experimenting..

Jill introduced me to apps that help me get the bright crisp look I was trying to achieve. And with some experimenting I have learned angling and prospective shots..

Thanks to Jill’s help my Instagram Shop went from 20 followers to almost 1300 in 3 weeks., In addition to new followers,  I have made three sales and brought  many new customers into my shop! Not too shabby..for a beginner..
