We asked Emily Lyons – owner and CEO of Femme Fatale Media – a few quick questions about how they’re using Instagram as part of their marketing.
Why did you start using Instagram?
It was a great way to instantly begin connecting directly with potential clients. It helped to quickly get our name out there and show what we offered.
What are some of the greatest successes you have had?
We haven’t experienced anything negative through Instagram, just many positives! We have several Instagram pages and our two most notable ones (instagram.com/femme_fatale_media and www.instagram.com/femmefatalelashes) have followers in the double digits and achieved these quickly. We’ve found clients, staff and many great connections through Instagram. It’s also helped us build a good reputation within our industries.
What do you love about using Instagram from a small business point of view?
It’s free marketing and PR, for any small business this is a must! It allows us to reach new potential clients for all our different subsidiaries simultaneously. It also helps us to become more personal with our customers and grow a good community.
What are your best tips for other small businesses using Instagram? Why should they use it?
When starting it’s important to be social with others interested in your business’s area. For example if you have a bakery search people hash tagging goods you sell. You can also use Instagram bots to help you build your following quicker and select targeted hashtags applicable to your business. Remember to be consistent with posting, reply to comments, and hashtag hashtag hashtag!
