We’ve addressed the importance of social media marketing but it’s worth taking a step back to evaluate which platform and strategy can be most beneficial to boosting your business. Last year was the year of Instagram, and we predict that Instagram will continue to be a strong performer in revenue-increasing marketing in the year ahead. Instagram is unique in that it offers the opportunity to highlight the unique and fascinating life behind the scenes of a freelancer. When people connect with your images, they’re likely to also become patrons of your business.
