Marketing a business on Instagram is fun, but since also requires a hefty amount of focus and dedication, we formed Indie Pods to support our members as they grow their brands using Instagram.
Our Indie Pod members are incredibly dedicated entrepreneurs who have strategically selected Instagram as a means of connecting with their target audiences. Whether it's a behind the scenes video, an IGTV Show, a snazzy product photo in the feed, or a quick Instagram story, they are intently focused on showcasing how their products can help Instagram users live a better life.
Here's what Mindy Cheng of Fyve Beauty said about her Fall Indie Pod experience, and why she signed up for our Holiday edition.
“I love being a part of Indie Pods not just for Instagram growth, but for the support from fellow Makers. It's tough when you're wearing 10 different hats, and it can feel overwhelming at times. Finding any sort of support group with like-minded humans is always be uplifting and helpful. As for Instagram growth, when you have more comments and likes, you feel supported and empowered. We've been able to target and reach a wider using Instagram to grow our newsletter list as well. If you're getting more email sign-ups, then you're on the right track!”
Our Indie Pods form on a quarterly basis. We just wrapped up the Summer Pod, and our Holiday Pod is now up and running. Who are they? I'm glad you asked! Check them out, follow, and go shopping!
