How To Create A Month Worth Of Instagram Content In 7 Easy Steps

by Shelley Costello on 06/13/19

What better way is there to tell a story than with photos, videos, and captions? Let me share with you 7 easy steps to create a full month worth of engaging content for your Instagram and Instagram stories.

1. Take a look at the Specialty days of the month, National Days and other themed holidays tor observations throughout the month. Build a post, image or video around that day. Some months there are several days.
Here is a site I use to keep up with National recognized days for creating posts.

2. Make a monthly hashtag list. Use important and related hashtags to use through the month. You should use some trending hashtags, but also have your own signature hashtags. Test them and see how they perform.

3. Know which day you will publish a new blog post and convert it into a gorgeous image with a text post on Instagram. Post the blog post in its entirety with a capturing image. There is a strategic way to post long format posts.
A tip I use every so often is to put the entire text of a short blog on the image. It really gets attention.

4. Make a list of relevant people or influencers to mention in your posts. Make a post about this person and tag them with a great image or post they published. Recognized influential people and commend them on their accomplishments. I run a group and page of the Most Influential People and the page really stands out. All we do is recognize people.
Mentioning others is a great way to increase your reach to new people who may not be aware of your brand. Mention people and influencers who are related to your niche.

5. Post an informational “How To” or “Top Tips” related to your niche. share your knowledge and expertise. Establish yourself as the expert. The simple use of tips and tricks is a great way to increase awareness of your brand. You can take tips or information out of a blog you have already created.

6. Share stories and information about yourself.
Be authentic and a little personal. Share a business or personal milestone or success. Share something that is inspiring or a story about how you got started in your business.

7. Post engaging content such as humor and quotes.
Quotes get the most likes and or comments because they are quick and easy items for your followers to engage with.

Your content will be a mix of videos, engaging images, quotes, special days, holidays, national recognized or themed days, general Tips or How To posts relevant to your niche, polls and more.

Clean Out Your Closet And Make Money For The New Year! Become an Ebay Consignee in my Store

by Shelley Costello on 12/27/17

Do you want to make extra money during the New Year????? 
Get your items together and put them in my consignment Ebay store. I will pay you. I will do all of the selling, Ebay fees, manage store and do all selling. I do the work and you sit back and collect for your unwanted items. 

I am looking for basically anything unique, collectible, interesting, retro, small or large items. Anything Disney, character, signage or advertising items, vintage is great, but does not have to be. Clothes, accessories and jewelry are great items. You can have one item or multiple items.

I do not take fake or counterfeit merchandise when it comes to designer items. I will have it authenticated  before I list it.

After your items sell I notify you that we got your price or what price we get. If an item does not sell for a long time I will ask if you wish to reduce the price.

I do have a consignee agreement contract for your protection. I will stock and inventory your merchandise. I will appraise your items and let you know what they will sell for and give you an estimates list for your items.

I always work hard to sell your items for the highest price.

If you are local in Orlando I will come and review your items, help you inventory and stock and sell your items for you. 

If you are anywhere in the US I will handle it virtually and you can sell in my store. Let me know if you have questions. I am willing to buy outright. Let me know what you have. If you are out of the State of Florida let me know and we can discuss it.

If you are a business and would like to have an Ebay store of your own and not pay out consignee commissions we will professionally create, design and set up your Ebay store. We will inventory and list all of your merchandise. We will then manage the store for you for a flat monthly rate of $99. We will come to your business and photograph your merchandise for listings. Initial set up and inventory listing fee is $200.
