About This Class


I set up my Instagram account in September 2014 starting with a fuzzy picture of a pear sketch, and just a handful of followers. Now just over 3 years later, I have 100,000 followers, and in this class I want to share some of the tips I used to achieve this. I really enjoy sharing my art on this platform, as it almost serves as a daily time capsule of where my art is at, and is a good reflection of me and my personality. 

There's a theory that goes if you perform a certain task every day for 30 days, new pathways are formed in your brain, so it becomes a habit. This can be applied advantageously to many areas of your life. I also feel this is a great approach for gaining great follows on Instagram.

This class for those who are already using or wish to use Instagram as part of their art, illustration or design business. I believe if you made consistent effort for at least 2 weeks, using the tips I'll be outlining in the class you'll seen tangible results in that time: more followers !!

The class will cover :

* an effective profile, including profile pics, identifiable user names and links

* making art everyday ( if possible) to build up anticipation 

* good quality phots or images

* effective captions for your post

* timing and using insights

* comments and the all important engagement

I hope you'll join me in this first class of 2018

Also a massive thank you to the artists who kindly let me feature their work - without their helpful support I would not have been able to create this class
