Let me start out by saying, I LOVE Instagram. Before I ever started using it for TpT, I was using it for my personal life. Brynn Allison, our Literary Maven, already mentioned that you need to decide if you want to combine your personal and business accounts or keep them separate. I decided I wanted to start over again to create a public account for my business. There are some things that I want to post for just my friends and some that I like to share with everyone. When I'm sharing with the whole world on my @caitscoolschool account, I remember that I only want to share things that if any principal or parent or colleague were to see it, they would find it to be acceptable.
So, what do I post? What kinds of things can you post?
Here's a snapshot of how I mix it up:
Takeaways from this example:
- 4 out of 9 are business-related and connecting to other TpT-ers.
- Two are related to hashtags, which will easily connect to more people.
- Two connect to other forms of social media (blog & Facebook).
