Cultivate your Instagram creativity with these 4 Winter Park marketing tips.
Creative blocks happen to the best of us. They come as a surprise and fill our brains with what seems like nothing. When a creative block occurs, it’s important to step back from your day to day activity and become inspired again.
Many people love Instagram because they like to see creative photos from people all over the world and for your business to thrive, you can break through the block and “just keep swimming.” Here are 4 marketing tips for your business to cultivate creativity on Instagram.
Break Your Routine
Stop what you are doing and get out of your home office, work office, or any day to day routine. It’s easy for us to get flooded with our Winter Park Marketing to do lists, and repetitive tasks, and before you know it, weeks have gone by, and you feel like all the creative ideas have gone away along with your time. Put your to-do list on pause and take the time to remember why you do what you do. Whether your business is product or service based, look at your Instagram and ask yourself if your feed is doing a good job of telling the audience what you do.
Grab a notebook, go to your favorite coffee shop, or to Park Ave, and write down all that your business does. A new location will allow your brain to think differently being that it’s not in the same building for several hours and Hannibal Square’s quaint feel is the perfect place to do this!
Writing down your services will visually help you think how you can better show what you do on Instagram. There might be things that your business does that you have not mentioned on social media that should be incorporated in your feed. Once you have written down your products or services, there are questions to ask yourself.
Ask Yourself the Right Questions
Questions will always get you to think differently. Ask yourself how can you attract more followers to your Instagram page. Instead of thinking that you are already posting good photos and don’t know why you aren’t getting many likes, look at what other companies are doing and ask yourself how you can do that, make it your own and do it better.
Are you using the right amount of hashtags? We say 11 hashtags is the golden number. Are you posting at least once or twice a day? Are my captions engaging? Are you keeping up with the trend and rising above it, or are you barely following the trend? Here are five noteworthy Instagram photo ideas we think might help your business and make sure to think of these Winter Park Marketing tips as you take a break to analyze your Instagram account.
Collaboration Is Key
Surrounding yourself with creative people will enhance your creative juices in your brain. Exchanging ideas with others, and helping each other make it come to life is truly rewarding so make a list of businesses that your company can help and offer your services to them. If their business can help you as well, make it a swapping service exchange, so you both will get something out of it. Collaborating with other Winter Park Marketing businesses on social media will show the world how you are helping others and will entice them to work with you.
Just Do it
To be creative is to let your ideas flow out onto paper even if they are in the works. Think of anything and everything that you can do to enhance your Instagram page and write it down on paper. This can either help you realize how awful that idea was, or make you break that idea down step by step to see how you can make it happen. Think of how your business can raise the bar on Instagram with their photos. Whether it is behind the scene photos, or utilizing Instagram stories, there’s always something you can do better just do it!
Taking a step back, asking the right questions, collaborating and just doing it are ways that any business can cultivate their creativity on Instagram. We hope these four Winter Park marketing tips will help your Instagram strategies, and help your business set itself apart.
