New Feed Options on Instagram
Breaking News episode! Instagram has announced that, in 2022, we will be getting the choice between seeing three different versions of our home feed. Those are the posts that you see from other accounts on your Instagram app. All, well and good, but what are these new feeds and, more importantly, what do they mean for us as influencers and marketers needing to build our follower base? How does this change our outreach? I share what we know and my analysis as to how we deal with the changes.
Growth on Instagram
In this episode we are going to talk about tools for growth on Instagram. Instagram is a very diverse and complicated platform and it really takes some time to learn all the tools and features. Honestly, looking at all the available social media platforms, I truly believe that Instagram has the best blend of tools for developing a community. Instagram has been accused of copying features from TikTok, but they are adding those to an already robust platform that allows the three pillars of creating a thriving fan base. Outreach to bring in interested followers, development of your community of followers, and one on one relationship building. Today I will focus on the features and tools that help us present ourselves to potential new followers to grow the account.

I just tell you what I have been thinking about. And, this is a seismic shift going on beneath our feet. Instagram is following the trends and pushing short form video heavily. And this is a shift in culture that we need to change with or else we will be further and further behind.
