Let talk today about choosing great images for your Social Media to help you stop your follower’s thumb from scrolling past your posts! This can be used for Instagram, Facebook and Twitter, which ever is your preferred social network.

I’m talking about Instagram here, as it’s a platform NOT to be ignored.

As Instagram is owned by Facebook, it’s pretty much guaranteed it’s longevity as a platform to invest your time in, and after reading some amazing stats on a blog from Entrepreneur Inc, I had to share these tips with you today.

Instagram is now an essential part of your LONG TERM Strategy.

Instagram is a great place to promote your personal brand, your business, your behind the scenes stories.

Here’s a snapshot of mine, so far!

As well as seeing you, your business and behind-the-scenes pictures, it’s important to post images of what your ideal clients and followers are interested in.

So, you need to apply proven, client-attracting Marketing techniques to help you identify great images to post on Instagram.

Think of your ideal client and step into their shoes for a moment.

What would they love to see in their feed? You need to stop them scrolling, to see and read your posts.

What are your ideal clients attracted to in their business, career, lifestyle?

WHAT and WHERE inspires them, that’s still related to your business?

What do they ASPIRE to have, to be, to own, in their lives?

What QUOTES would they love to see that you feel would motivate them, inspire them, and make a positive change to their mindset?

What success stories can you tell them? You can make a ‘Testimonial’ image using WordSwag and post it for us to see.

Take some time today to see how you can incorporate new ideas for images, to help you attract more of your ideal clients on their journey to work with you.

Tell your story. Inspire your clients. Have fun!
