Hi lovelies! Happy new month! Autumn is here and it's time to get a bit more serious. I often get asked how I grew my Instagram or how I managed to create such a following on Pinterest. Well, hard work and dedication to start with but I also had a little help.
When I started out on Instagram it was just for fun. I wanted to share my passion for bohemian fashion with you, my love for travel and I had no big plans whatsoever! I had no clue about hashtags, the right times to post or even that I could get paid to do what I loved! It wasn't until I saw other bloggers attracting brands, creating beautiful grids and really making their Instagram into a brand.
When I started out on Instagram
5 Years ago there was not much information about Social Media, about how to attract the right audience or how to pitch brands. So I learned and failed and I learned a little bit more. But not without the 3 next influencers who have really taught me how to grow my Social Media, my blog and how to turn it into a brand. So without further ado the 3 most awesome boss babes who will teach you all the nitty-gritty on Social Media.
The 3 Must-Follow Influencers to grow your social media
Julie or Juls is a beautiful publicist who turned blogger, podcaster and social media guru. She really is one of the bigger Influencer marketing educators I first started to follow. If you are struggling to bring your brand to a higher level, want to reach out to brands and pitch them in the right way, or basically everything you need to know how to grow your brand and stay connected with your audience… Jules is there for you. I love to listen to her podcast while I'm traveling and her course Pitch it Perfect has really been an eyeopener for me. If you are really serious about bringing your online business to the next level her course The Influencers Academy is also something I can highly recommend (opens only once a year) One to follow >> Julie Solomon
Another one of my latest teachers and a big source of inspiration; the amazing Jenna. This boss babe, who recently became a mum, has turned her wedding photography business into a 6-figure online marketing expert brand. There is not a day that goes by that I don't have a look at her Pinterest guides, her free stuff is amazing, or her blog. If you want to know how to grow your email list, how to attract the right audience for your brand, or how to simply start from scratch she is the one to follow. Check out her podcasts here.
And last but not least, blogger babe and Instagram goddess Quigley. This LA bases content creator with her amazing love for fashion is one of most real girls you will find on the ‘Gram. She talks about her insecurities and wins, her crazy husband and her life on Instagram. I just adore her! Quigley recently released her first social media course THE SOULCIALMEDIA. Especially if your brand focuses on Instagram you have to check out her free guide on how to grow your Instagram engagement or the tips on writing the best captions! I'm so happy I discovered her >> OfficiallyQuigley.
Are you stuck on social media, has your growth reached a plateau, or are you simply tired and overworked with the whole Instagram game? These 3 amazing boss babes will lift you up. Believe me, I've been there, and whenever I need some new inspiration, guidelines on how to grow my blog, or how to tackle that Instagram algorithm these are the girls I turn to.
And finally some last advice from me and something the 3 influencers will absolutely teach you too: Start to build your email list now! I realized way too late in the game the importance of an email list, but if you really want to connect to your followers, give away some free stuff or share your latest blog you will need an email list for the best results. I just started to work with FloDesk and I'm super excited about them. They have designed the templates for Jenna Kutcher too and they are super easy to use. Please don't make the same mistake I did so start that list now!
