I was in your shoes 2 years ago. I thought I was using my social media to promote my business, but I didn’t have any kind of strategy in place. On Instagram I posted a variety of personal and business posts, in no particular order. When the winds changed, so did the vibe of my account.

Last year, everything changed.

I discovered how to create an effective Instagram account that builds strong relationships and actually promotes my business.

I began learning these techniques from other experts in the field. Some of their ideas were really great, but I also felt like something was missing. I didn’t feel like their strategies gave me or my account a greater sense of purpose. I wanted to feel that my efforts on Instagram were building relationships with other people around the world. That I was making a difference in their lives while improving my bottom line.

That’s when I started developing my own Instagram with Intention strategy. Just a few months ago I was celebrating 10,000 amazingly wonderful followers. That took me one year to grow. Since implementing my own strategy, in the past 6 months I have doubled that number to 20,000 followers.

The best part of this recent growth is that I now receive direct messages and comments every week from followers who tell me I’ve inspired them. That’s what makes me feel like my work online is worth it!

Think about how your time on Instagram makes you feel. How do your efforts make your followers feel?

Now, imagine what it would feel like if all that time you spend tapping away on Instagram made you feel fulfilled and excited. <- Click to tweet!
