Are you dreaming to Launch a Fashion Business on Instagram?
Are you starting your Styling Service on IG?
Do you feel Instagram is your thing?
Chanel has 28 Million Followers, Gucci has 25.7 Million Followers but small brands or fashion businesses can reach thousands of people through Instagram and grow a community of people around their business!
I’ve honestly never cared about the quantity of followers you need
to have to start or to grow a Fashion Business, BUT I’ve always cared
about the QUALITY of followers you should have on Instagram
and on all social media, if you want to turn them into REAL Customers!
Instagram is the best social media for Fashion Businesses, because it’s a visual platform and people can interact immediately with you,
know about your Fashion Business but also
know more about your personal life through Instagram Stories or
the new IGTV.

You have 2 options or you advertise (the quickest way with Instagram Ads or Influencer marketing) or you can build an organic fashion community through finding the right hashtags or sharing your IG profile on other Social Media. Everyone knows how important Insta influencers are at the minute so I think it’s a great way to attract followers.
