1. Treat yourself. It’s important to invest in your business. Even if you’re on a budget, a little can go a long way. I suggest going online and ordering a tripod for your phone or camera, a backdrop for a more professional background, some lights, and maybe a few lenses for a unique camera angle. Depending on your business, not all of these will be necessary. But a few extra bells and whistles never hurts! 2. Stay true to you. We all know the saying, “just be yourself”. It may be corny, but it’s true! Audiences can see right through a try-hard influencer, and the last thing you want is to make the same mistake. It may be tempting to follow trends just for clout, but when you stay true to your brand, the right people will follow. 3. Consistency is key. Set time aside to make a content calendar for each month. By posting consistently during peak hours, you’ll be much more likely to get through to your audience. Keeping your followers engaged with exciting new updates is key for building hype around your brand. 4. If you’ve got it, flaunt it. Don’t be shy! Audiences love to see the behind-the-scenes of how a business runs. Every now and then, consider sharing a Reel of what your typical workday looks like, or how a new product is made. 5. Get with the trends. Take advantage of trending sounds and hashtags on Reels to maximize your audience reach. By doing so, you’ll be able to advertise to viewers who might not have known about your business before. Who knows, maybe your business is something even they didn’t know they needed!
