August is the Sunday of months.  Seriously.  We love it because it is still summer (or the weekend) but we know work or school is right around the corner.  It is the best and the worst and it also means we are half way through Instagram Tip Tuesday!

This weeks tip is "don't be a one hit wonder."  I learned these words from the fabulous Jenna Kutcher (I will post more about that rockstar soon).  She has coined something called the "Jenna Kutcher 5."  I guess technically that would make this her tip! 

The JK5 is just around to remind you not to post about the exact same thing everyday.  You want variety and excitement in your posts so your followers won't know what is coming next.  You want to keep your followers on their toes so they keep coming back for more!  I am still working on this.  I am having trouble narrowing down my "five" but I can give you an example of the 5 I use for own of my clients.

  1. Interiors
  2. Images of delicious meals
  3. Beaches
  4. Lifestyle Imagery
  5. Recipes from our Cookbook

We rotate through these five things (with the occasional interruption) so our grid is interesting, well-rounded, and will keep our followers coming back for more.  If we posted the same food image everyday, you all would know what to expect.  It would not be as exciting and we would blend in with every other food account.  Find what works for you and your feed that will make you stand out.

If you feel like you are having trouble finding your five and standing out, you can always hire me!
