DEC 12 | How to Use Instagram to Build Your Business

Instagram has 1B active monthly users (2X that of LinkedIn)... in fact, 500M people visit Instagram daily. The largest user base is 25-34 and 30% of people making $75K or more in the US are Instagram users.

We are quickly losing the ability to use the excuse that "our clients aren't on Instagram."

Luckily, there are professionals in our industry who are already finding success on the platform and can help us set a strategy that works.

Our colleague Wendi Weiner, who has exceeded the 10K-follower mark that enables brands to have more marketing functionality, has agreed to do just that in this webinar!
