How to improve your Instagram marketing strategies

Gone are the days when businesses rely on printed ads or television commercials to advertise their products or services. Nowadays, social media plays a big role in marketing strategy of corporations worldwide. One of the biggest social media platforms is Instagram, with over 100 million users of the app.

This allows business owners to reach audiences they would never be able to do with traditional marketing. Now, you can even gain customers from halfway around the world. If you are new to Instagram marketing, here are some tips on how you can make the most out of this platform.

  1. Make your profile a business profile - One of the first things you need to do is make sure that your account is a business account. If you already have an existing account, you can easily switch it to a business one. What makes a business account better? For one, you can have ads without the need for Facebook advertising. You will also get to use Insights, Instagram's analytics tool which can show you your top posts, and the demographics of your audience.
  2. Regularly post content - Because there are so many businesses using Instagram to advertise, you need to make sure that your followers constantly see content from you. Always put teasers of your coming products. Add images and videos. You do not need to bombard your followers with many posts. Once a day is enough. Also, make sure to use Stories and even go Live once in a while.
  3. Do steps to increase your following - The thing with Instagram is, even if you have a business profile or curate amazing and eye-pleasing content if you only have a few hundred followers then it will be a waste. You want to have more people following you. One way to do that is getting automatic instagram likes. The more people like your posts, the more other users will see that your brand can be trusted.
  4. Partner with a social media influencer - One of the surest ways to get a wider reach is to partner with a brand influencer. Nowadays, these brand influencers have become our modern-day celebrities. Many users trust their recommendations and often check their posts to see what they wear, where they go and what they eat. Do your research to see who can best promote your brand. Just remember that those brand influencers with more followers may charge a lot more. To be safe, you can look for people with about 15,000 to 50,000 followers. They still have influence but they will not charge you that much compared to those who have hundreds of thousands of followers.
  5. Run giveaways - Another way to market your product is to have promotional giveaways! Do it in such a way that it will encourage more people to follow your account. This way, you will increase your following. Also, don't forget to add hashtags to all your posts. You can choose an already existing hashtag or create one that can be associated with your brand.

Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) is an autoimmune disease that impacts approximately 1 in 10 women. Any woman who has PCOS can attest to the fact that no two cases are the same — there are so many aspects of hormonal health that can impact a woman's reproductive health! For many, PCOS is a trial and error condition, with many doctors' appointments depending on the stage of life the woman is in.

This week I sat down with Dr. Anjanette Tan to get the expert opinion on all my PCOS questions. Dr. Tan is a board-certified endocrinology who's worked in private practices since 2004. She currently works at the Diabetes and Thyroid Center of Fort Worth, one of the largest all-endocrine practices in the area, where she is the managing partner and head of clinical research.

- Since I can remember, I've always been a light sleeper, with the quietest sounds waking me up, and I regularly wake up with the sun.

- While talking to a gynecologist friend of mine, she mentioned the importance of using an eye mask for quality sleep, which regulates hormonal levels.

- I was serendipitously sent the Crane & Canopy Silk Sleep Mask almost right after that conversation and was honestly reluctant to try it after testing other sleep masks that felt uncomfortable and irritated my skin.

- This sleep mask was extremely comfortable, and for the first time in nearly a decade, I slept in far past when I usually do on the weekends and woke up feeling more refreshed than I can remember — I've worn it nearly every night since then.

The older I get, it seems that sleep becomes an increasingly important topic of conversation amongst my friends and me. Yes, of course we complain about how tired we always are, but the pattern seemed to be a lack of sleep on the weekdays followed by late nights and sleeping in on the weekends without any solution.

I'll never forget the day that someone told me these words: "Madison, I think you're a good friend to everyone but yourself." I stood there completely in awe of that statement. Before that day, I never really thought about being a friend to myself, and at the time, I didn't really know what it meant. Now, I realize that you can't fully be there for other people unless you're there for yourself, too. You can't show up for others until you're willing to show up for yourself.

Here are five things everyone should learn in order to be a better friend to themselves. These steps are hard, but they're so worth it.
