3 Steps To Create Your Brand Personality On Instagram

It's the way business is trending  Gone are the days of just trying to "build a list", just running a Facebook ad, or hanging out on Facebook all day (really when did that ever work). :o With the rise of the number of people building businesses online - from teenagers to millennials to even grandmothers - it's becoming harder to be visible, to stand out, and to have a presence on any social media app.
