More than half of marketers who have been using social media report that it has improved their sales (Social Media Examiner, 2015)
If you are an interior designer, architect or general contractor, Instagram is the platform you should be on!
DID you know 70.7% of businesses are using Instagram in 2017? This means your competitors may be on Instagram and getting leads that COULD be YOURS
DID you know that when posting with the right hashtags, people will FIND you and if they like what they see, they’ll start following you?
DID you know 30% of your posts on Instagram are seen by your followers? That may sound low, but it is still WAY better than Facebook where the reach for a business page is only 3%
Let’s face it, people LOVE pretty pictures. People LOVE connecting with other people.
People will get an inside look at your personality and vibe, before they even meet you for a consultation.
By using Instagram, you can not only showcase your work, but ALSO people will get to know YOU better. The more people get to KNOW, LIKE and TRUST you, the more willing they will want to WORK with you
“Social Media has quickly become the source for reinforcing a companies brand and reputation. Having Gigi on my team to take ownership of my social media has been amazing in that she not only takes complete responsibility for the platforms but she adds tremendous value with the number of years of experience she brings to the table. In addition to that she is flexible, willing and very adaptable to what is happening on Social Media. She’s made a great impact on my social media sites and I’m excited for what the future of my companies’ social media will bring with her at the helm of it. ”
