Instagram for Business (Intermediate Tips + Tricks)

January 21 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Lost in the middle of instagram? Know some stuff but not all? Come meet + learn from other local entrepreneurs on how to have the coolest feed on the block (or how they do it). This panel features Salem Style, eatdrinknorthshore, Creative Collective MA, and Creative North Shore, all known locally for their amazing curated accounts.

If you’re reading this, you’re comfortable-ish with Instagram and are looking to expand on your expertise to scale your business. This class is INTERMEDIATE Instagram for Business — not Instagram 101 🙂 .

Event contribution is $25. Discounted tickets are available for official members of Creative Collective MA or The Next Gen Network for $15. A few scholarships are available, please message us if you’d like to attend but things are tied up financially.

Please already have an Instagram account, and bring your charged cell phone/lap top to play around.

We plan to address the following topics as well as your questions:
-Stories: animations, how to “swipe up to learn more,” sound, video, go live, IGTV, etc.
-Getting verified
-Increasing and engaging your following on social media
-How to get more likes, comments, and responses.
-How to best utilize hashtags, locations, tagging, GIFs, and more
-Much More!

– 5:30-6:30: Light networking over tea and snacks. No alcohol will be served at this event. Commuting from Boston? No worries – the panel doesn’t begin until 6:30 to give commuters time to get back to the North Shore.
– 6:30: Panel begins. Presenters will go over their respective approaches–what’s worked for them, what hasn’t, and more.
– 7:15: Q+A and Handle Exchange. We’ll always leave room for your questions at the end! We’ll also be doing a handle exchange where each student has the opportunity to share their page and allow fellow students to follow.
