Social Media Basics - Instagram & Pinterest

Social Media Basics: Instagram & Pinterest

We all know that it is vital to be using strong visuals in our social media, and these two platforms thrive on quality imagery. They are also both storming ahead in popularity so don’t miss out on utilising them as part of your digital strategy. Traditionally seen as places to view lovely images, many businesses don’t understand how to use them strategically.

Instagram is increasing in popularity with businesses with the introduction of business profiles, analytics and Instagram stories. We will show you how to use Instagram as a business and how to reach a wider audience. Get tips on what hashtags to be using and how to engage with other accounts.

Pinterest is more of a search engine than a social platform, but many people don’t understand how this can help them. We will show you how to use Pinterest for your business and how to increase your reputation and popularity. Learn about ‘rich’ pins and making the most of your business account.
