Instagram has continued to grow this year at a record rate, recently clocking up over 800M active users from around the world! The nature of social media means it changes constantly but there’s only one thing for certain — Instagram is not going anywhere!
There’s been an extraordinary amount of time and money invested into Instagram by many of us, and for good reason, it’s set to remain a social media staple for years.
Sure Instagram is great, but how to make best use of it to get people to buy from you?
Do you struggles with getting potential clients and quality leads to your website? We hear you, sister.
It can be difficult to attract the right audience to your website. You know, the people that will be dying to invest in your services or purchase your products.
It’s your websites job to attract dreamy customers but if you’re having a little trouble figuring out exactly how to entice those ideal people to your website, this is the blog post for you.
We’ve been in business for over 6 years, so we know a thing or two about attracting ideal people to your website. We didn’t always do it right, but we hope you can learn from our experiences and mistakes.
We’ve been sharing a lot of content over the past two weeks on how you can drive more traffic to your website.

One thing all of these posts have in common?
How important it is to have beautiful, well-designed social media graphics to promote your blog posts.
And we want to show you how you can make amazing social media graphics without having a design background and wasting hundreds of dollars.
Do you ever wonder how certain blog posts go viral?
A blog post going viral can happen for a number of reasons:
- It’s surprising or shocking content
- It makes you feel rebellious
- It makes readers want to support what you’re writing about
- It uniquely problem solves
But one critical piece is the graphics that accompany the blog post.
Do you spend a lot of time crafting the perfect blog post but then get barely any traffic to your website?
Girl, I hear you on that one. We had those same struggles too.
We’d write blog posts all the live long day, spending hours crafting a piece of content that would get seen by maybe two or three people (and those people may have been our relatives 😂)
Let me set the scene for you: It was back in 2013, about a year after we had started our business and while we were doing okay, we weren’t getting the traffic that we so desperately wanted.
It was hard, because all we wanted was to get our best content in front of the right audience. We knew that people needed this information but we somehow couldn’t reach those people.
