Welcome to Creative Circle - a 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?
Alex Tooby is the veritable Instagram queen (in my experience, at any rate). She's the faceless wonder behind the Men and Coffee Instagram account, and she's taken to a personal account to share all her Instagram pearls of wisdom, and it's one of the genuinely unique and valuable accounts I've come across.
I didn't know about the Men and Coffee page, but I did see Alex's Instagram Tips floating around a few months ago when I began my "Insta education" and I think what I like most is how she's taken something very simple (the combination of men and coffee) and made it into roaring success in a very short span of time because the secret sauce is always simplicity and consistency. Taking what you know people will love, in its purest form, and rolling with it. Her ingenious take on two things most people like - coffee and men - and bringing that together is a perfect example of how a unique niche can set you apart and is always the secret to success. Keep it simple, always.
Her account for Instagram tips (what I call her 'personal' account) is bursting at the seams with actionable advice on how to be smarter and profitable with Instagram (you know I'm all about working smarter), and I appreciate that she doesn't waste her audience's time with run-of-the-mill advice.
If you're serious about Instagram or want to be more strategic about your Instagram audience, this is mandatory viewing.
Get on it, you won't regret it.
