𝐃𝐨𝐧’𝐭 𝐥𝐞𝐭 𝐲𝐨𝐮𝐫 𝐜𝐥𝐢𝐞𝐧𝐭𝐬 𝐟𝐨𝐫𝐠𝐞𝐭 𝐚𝐛𝐨𝐮𝐭 𝐲𝐨𝐮! Struggling for new content to post while you’re not actively working on clients? I feel you. Here are some ways I have managed to stay on top of my Instagram game:
1. 𝐔𝐬𝐞 𝐭𝐡𝐨𝐬𝐞 𝐩𝐡𝐨𝐭𝐨𝐬 𝐭𝐡𝐚𝐭 𝐰𝐞𝐫𝐞𝐧’𝐭 𝐠𝐨𝐨𝐝 𝐞𝐧𝐨𝐮𝐠𝐡
If you are a perfectionist like me, you probably have a camera roll full of photos that you deemed unworthy of posting. Well, desperate times call for desperate measures. By playing around on multiple editing apps (we’ve got time to spare), I was able to throw some creative edits on top of photos that I didn’t like in the past. Get creative with cropping, using the mirror tool, and colorful overlays to draw attention away from parts of the photo that you didn’t like.
2. 𝐓𝐡𝐞 𝐩𝐡𝐨𝐭𝐨𝐬 𝐝𝐨𝐧’𝐭 𝐇𝐀𝐕𝐄 𝐭𝐨 𝐛𝐞 𝐨𝐟 𝐫𝐞𝐚𝐥 𝐡𝐮𝐦𝐚𝐧𝐬!
Get creative with taking photos of your fan practice. Put one of your training certificates in a frame and photograph it. Photograph the products on your retail shelf. Some companies have marketing photos for retail products that you can use on social media (hello, @borboletabeauty ).
Scroll back to some of the first photos you posted on Instagram - you’ve gained a lot of followers since then, haven’t you? And most likely, these new followers haven’t scrolled back through years worth of photos to see everything. Screenshot the old photo, throw some new filters or editing on it to match your current feed aesthetic, and repost! Most people probably haven’t seen it, and if you’re worried about repeats on your page just archive the original post
