Instagram to Provide Tips and Advice for Influencers-
The plan is to have this new @Creators Account share tips, tricks and tutorials from platform experts, as well as official Instagram updates and data insights. The goal is to keep pushing platform growth & maintain connection with prominent creators.

“This is especially true for IGTV, which is still yet to gain significant traction – in order for IGTV to become a YouTube-like rival, it needs those top creators to keep posting, while it also needs the next generation of video stars to want to build their on-platform presence and audience.” – Andrew Hutchinson, writing for Social Media Today

Would a newsletter like Slice, tailored to the content of your B2B or B2C customers, be of value to you? You can’t depend on newsfeeds anymore. It is no secret they have become declining organic sources of engagement. Just as friends update each other on what’s happening in their lives, small biz can build engaging relationships with customer bases by keeping them in the loop with email newsletters.
