Welcome to Creative Circle - a new weekly series on DigitalMill where I'll be shining the spotlight on one creative entrepreneur I've recently discovered or am currently inspired by, along with 3 creative entrepreneurs you need to follow on Instagram.
Chances they'll all be kicking ass and taking names?
I'm so excited to open the first ever edition of 'Creative Circle' with the lovely Stephanie Gilbert of Small Talk Social, a visual marketing strategist and all-round Instagram wonder.
I recently decided to open an Instagram account, and before I go about sharing it publicly, I wanted to be deliberate about my strategy and the visuals I share. A cheeky Pinterest search, and I quickly came across Stephanie and her Instagram knowledge bombs.
She has a treasure trove of highly valuable content (including a terrific Youtube channel) to build an intentional and relevant Instagram account, and what I love best is that she breaks down concepts so they're easy to digest and all her posts are incredibly actionable, which means you can get to work immediately. Adult homework satisfaction? YES.
Check out four of my favourite articles on Small Talk Social:
1. How To Create A Perfect Post On Instagram | The Anatomy Of Engaging Visual Content
2. How To Write Captions For Instagram | 5 Ways To Create The Perfect Copy
3. A Look Inside | Small Talk's Social Media Management Toolbox (because who doesn't love a cheeky "What's in my Bag, business edition?)
4. Twenty Essential Instagram Apps, Tools + Resources (a resource list, need I say more?)
BONUS: A fantastic interview with another favourite blogger, Jordanna Rowan of House of Muses (spoiler alert: she may or may not be featured in this series soon!).
