Uptown Studios started a new monthly meeting this past week, discussing instagram for business. On the third Tuesday of every month from 8 a.m. to 9 a.m. at the Society for the Blind, we will be hosting a free training – covering a wide variety of topics. Did you miss Uptown Studios’ first Tuesday Tips session this week? No worries, we will recap each session with a blog post the following Friday.

First off, thank you to everyone who attended and a big shout out to our friends at Society for the Blind, for letting us use their great meeting room – it’s great to have such dedicated and ready-to-learn community members here in Sacramento!

So what did we discuss? INSTAGRAM! … and then some, of course, but mostly Instagram and how to use this platform for business.

So here were our main tips:

  • Instagram is NOT just for businesses with a product to share. Instagram is a great way to show brand personality and give your audience sneak-peeks and behind-the-scene looks at your organization.

  • Use hashtags! Hashtags are a great way to expand your audience on instagram. Do some research and see what hashtags are being used, by who, for what. Find some industry related hashtags and use them on your photos. Watch your likes and followers grow!

  • Monitor results. Statigr.am is a great way to monitor your Instagram stats. Find out who your top instagrammers are, what your most used hashtags are in comparison to the most used on Instagram, learn what filters get the best results for you and more.

And most importantly, of course, have fun, get social, and post cute animal photos!

Join the conversation and see what others are saying using the hashtag #UptownTips.
