If you're a TPT seller and you're using Instagram for your business, the TPT sale is a perfect time to talk about your products and encourage your audience to go and shop in your store! But how do you talk about the sale without feeling too "salesy" or without bothering your followers?
Here are some ideas of what you can do before, during, and after the sale to promote the sale on your Instagram.
I wanted to dive in deep and talk about the differences between the different account types you can choose for your Instagram account.
I am not going to be sharing any photos from my classroom on Instagram this year. In the past, I have occasionally shared a #feetupfriday post, or maybe a shot of my anchor charts or my messy desk, but this year I'm doing things differently. Over the last year or so, I have felt less and less comfortable posting images of my classroom on the internet and slowly I have backed off from sharing classroom photos. There are a few reasons why I made this decision.
It's easy to feel lost in the sea of teacher Instagram accounts. Often you might feel like your reach is so small that what you're posting and saying isn't reaching anyone's ears. Here's the deal, though. No matter how big or small your audience is, you're impacting the people who see your content. If you're using Instagram, you have an influence.
Have you seen a trend lately of teacherprenuers using Instagram to grow their audience? Maybe you've heard of some big names in the teacher-instagram land and you've got heart eyes wondering how they were able to find so much success. You may have even started your own teacher instagram, but you're feeling a little lost and you're wondering if you'll ever have more than 20 people like your photos. Maybe you're dreaming of the day when teachers will talk about your account or share your resources during lunch.
When I first started my teacher instagram, I felt a lot of these feelings. It seemed like there was some big secret to success that no one was willing to share. I felt alone and desperate and I wanted to give up, but I'm so glad that I didn't.
