Octopus Connection on Instagram


I started an IG account about 1 1/2 years ago for my art and other creative work.  I call it Octopus Connection since I do so many different things and try to bring it all together in one place. (painting, digital art, sculpting, teaching, fashion illustration & design, pattern design etc.)   It has been really slow to grow so I’ve been looking to crack the code.  These tips were so helpful and I really enjoyed this class!   Lolo you are a joy to watch whether you are sharing IG tips or doing sports!!



My visual strategy is to morph my feed into different color ways each month since I love color and studying Pantone color trends.  So far it's working well.  Especially taking it into IG Stories and IGTV.  I am also trying a freebie offer in my Profile and extra engagement with my followers, and I'm going to try my first art supply Giveaway soon so we'll see how that works.  It's fun to see what is working and what needs to be tweaked.  IG seems to be about adaptation.  



I think the biggest thing I took away from this class is that I gained new confidence to just go for it!  The process seems so much more approachable now.  For example, I’ll be reaching out to brands that I’d love to work with going forward instead of just wishing…  Also, I will be trying out some new apps like the When to Post.  Genius!!!  Also want to check out the Whistle Cam.  Very cool idea.

Lolo, thanks again for reaching out to help us all with IG on Skillshare!!!
