Lesson One

Creating Content Themes 

Content theming is one really easy way to always know what the hell you’re going to talk about each day or week. For some it helps to fully write out everything in a day for the entire month. For others giving a broad stroke idea to yourself is really helpful.

In addition to building out content themes we’re going to discuss how to do this.

There are five key components of an Instagram strategy:

  • How to create content themes – Knowing your niche
  •  Knowing which content themes are right for your brand
  •  Quote blocks

    Lesson Four

    Why You Need A Website

    So we have the strategy, we have everything we need when it comes to the way we develop our content and how we’re going to share it, as well as all of the hashtags that will help us target the right customers. Now one thing you may not already have is a website. If you do happen to have a website already created you might want to skip over this video.

    For many creators on Instagram Etsy stores are a really great cheap option, especially if you’re not a website designer or developer. However, if you’re looking to get serious about Instagram and turning it into a full-fledged business you need a website outside of an Etsy store.

    In this video, we’re going to go over just the top of a website why you need it and how to choose between a website, just Instagram, or whatever another kind of content you’re going to be creating.

    Key concepts discussed in this video: 

    • Why a website
    • Website VS Etsy
    • How to know when you should upgrade
    • Choosing between blogging and podcasting
