Instagram | How To Grow and Build A Loyal Audience

Instagram used to be my favorite social media platform but the algorithm and other recent updates lately have made using it incredibly frustrating. Earlier in the year, I thought I was the only one feeling like engagement had gone down but a few friends had mentioned they saw a stunt in engagement as well. Fast forward to end of Spring, engagement became worse and growth almost nonexistent. At first I thought, what in the world did I do? I was posting consistently and I thought the quality of my photos were pretty darn good for someone who had 0 experience with photography.

Fortunately (and unfortunately) lack in growth and engagement was an issue for nearly 90% of the people I followed as well as others I’ve seen in different niches. It sucks but rather than moping around (okay I still do this LOL) I began to do TONS of research. After months and months of reading articles and talking to dozens of Instagrammers, I think I can offer a few tips on how grow and build a loyal audience.

TIPS TO GROW AND BUILD A LOYAL AUDIENCE

Similar to what I did in my post about Do’s and Don’ts of Brand Pitches, I asked several fellow influencers to give me their opinion on this topic.

Small Shop Spotlight | Lady Burgundy

Welcome to the first installment of Small Shop Spotlight, today we’ll be getting to know the creator of Lady Burgundy! As some of you may know, I am very passionate about small shops and supporting them. It’s so inspiring to see individuals follow their dreams and start their own business. Over the past couple of years, I’ve been fortunate enough to get to know and work with a number of indie brands and to bring this blog series to life makes me so happy!

Today is National Lipstick Day and I couldn’t have thought of a better brand to start off with than Lady Burgundy! Plus, they recently released some brand new liquid lipsticks, so I’ll be sharing some swatches of those as well!

A Beginner’s Guide To Makeup | Types Of Beauty Products

Hi loves! Grab a snack or some bubbly because this is going to be a long one.

I am so excited to be writing this post because, if you asked me a few years ago, it’s something I never thought I would have the experience and knowledge to write. I wasn’t always a makeup enthusiast, in fact I started wearing makeup when I was about 19 or 20..and that wasn’t even a full face – just basic foundation, a little eyeliner, and some gloss. Ever since then, I began to do more and more research and spent countless hours watching beauty gurus on youtube and reading dozens of beauty blogs. A little over 5 years later, here I am ready to give beauty beginners some information I wish I had when I first started.

As I dove deeper into the beauty realm, many of my friends and family members would ask me questions about makeup – what foundation to use, what’s a highlighter, what’s the difference between matte and sheer, what do these products even do, etc. The fact that I was able to answer all their questions confidently made me realize it wouldn’t hurt to give my thoughts here on my blog.

This will be the first of a three-part series! As I mentioned above, this post will contain information on makeup products and what they are/do. The next series will do with the best places to shop for makeup, and the last part will do with specific product recommendations!
