Is your business active on Instagram? Are you leveraging it to build your personal brand? While it was once one of many possible social media platforms to market your product or service, you now need to allocate a large percentage of your social media effort toward it. Instagram is no longer an option — it’s a necessity.
Let’s not pretend that we’re not guilty of automatically whipping out our phones to document our breakfast/ brunch/ lunch/ coffee/snack/ dinner/ drinks/ dessert– whew!– as soon as a dish—or a drink—is set on the table. Thanks to Instagram though, there’s mounting pressure to have beautiful photos on our feeds, that it’s almost no longer acceptable to just aimlessly snap and post, without giving it a thought. (Let’s leave that to Stories.)
