30 Day Instagram Challenge

We are excited to announce the next 30-day challenge for the 60 Second Marketing Podcast, our Instagram Challenge! For the month of April, we are encouraging you to go “all in” on your Instagram account.

Why Instagram?

Because Sandro and I believe this is a platform that consumer-based businesses need to be using.  (Disclaimer: always create detailed client profiles to best understand your target market!)

Instagram has surpassed Twitter with monthly active users and it’s a very user-friendly app.  Plus, it continues to cater to the needs of businesses – sure, there is more to be done but Instagram is making progress!

You’ll see below that we’ve outlined something for you to do every day in the month of April.  I always hear things like, “I won’t know what to post!”

Thankfully, we’ve made it really simple with this challenge.  You’ll get a few days off from posting, but we still want you to be actively working on your Instagram account by following new people. And remember, you should be following new accounts throughout the month as well!

Don’t forget to use our hashtag #60smchallenge and tag our new Instagram account @60SecMarketing.

Personally, I love doing challenges like this because it pushes me to make time for things that I’ve been procrastinating.
