Commonly Asked Questions
I have only just started an Instagram account for my business, is this workshop suitable?
If you already have an account set up on Instagram and understand the basics of the platform, then we can help you to sort out the rest.
I don’t know anything about Instagram and don’t have an account set up but will be starting a new business soon and would like to learn how to use this social media platform, can I attend?
If you have no prior knowledge of Instagram and do not yet have an active account, then we suggest you start with the Introduction to Instagram workshop first where we help you to get everything set up.
My industry is not homewares or interiors focused, will you still be able to help me with hashtags?
Yes. We will teach you how to find the right hashtags for your industry – whatever that may be.
Will you teach me how to style and take photos for instagram?
We will touch on the principals behind beautiful imagery but in this course we do not teach photography or styling. If you are interested in this, you may wish to consider our 'Styling and Photography for Social Media' workshop.
