Using INSTAGRAM as a professional and creating content and engagement with a high number of followers is not coincidental. For me, neutral aesthetics are consistent throughout and images of my projects blend beautifully with moments from events and business life. My Instagram is meant to shows my interior design style and approach, but also authenticity and more about the who I am behind the brand. This content mix works for me and is perfect if you are looking to humanize your interiors and design brand. To see more: dvd Interior Design on Instagram

Join me as I talk to Instagram stars, Vanessa Deleon @vda_designs, Mike Elayan @ECSHomes, Lana Lebersfeld @capitollighting and Courtney McLeod @rightmeetsleftinteriordesign about how your Instagram can be an extension of your creative talent.

+Update: May15th: Our panel has concluded and I have a recap here just for you:

5 Reasons You’re Not Growing on IG and what to do.

  1. You won’t post unless it’s “perfect”.

      • What is most valuable to your followers. Photos of your cat 🐱 or your Tuesday night dinner 🍽 has no value to the consumer. A great split is 80% educational content, and 20% inspirational content for your feed if your goal is to monetize.

      • 3️⃣ You’re not using the available features of Instagram to the fullest - Lives, IGTV, Stories, or Hashtags. //

      • Just remember, the algorithm is not out to get you. Its there to make this experience work for everyone. It’s actually pretty smart 🤓.

      • The more time spent on the platform, the more the algorithm will push out your content. Accounts who are publishing IGTV videos, using Stories, doing Lives, and posting consistently with a few hashtags are getting the best results.

      • 4️⃣ You’re looking at the wrong metrics. //

      • Stop obsessing 😑 over your likes. These vanity metrics don’t make you any money and they don’t really matter (besides, Likes could be going away for good, so....). Instead focus on engagement! Comments, DM’s, new follows.

      • 5️⃣ You’re waiting for them to come to you.

      • If you’re not willing to be the conversation starter, the forward thinker, the one who goes out to find their people on IG... you very well may get left behind. As much as Instagram is just an app, it can also be a relationship building platform. When you use it as such, you’ll see results. I promise you.

      • Time to up-level that IG game.
