There is nothing new about this topic. We have danced around it often on social media, but it wasn't until recently that we have noticed an influx of small business owners asking more and more about buying likes/followers on the Instagram platform. In this episode, we cover the reasons why you should build organic and holistic social proof and stir clear of buying your way into the hearts of your potential buyers, customers, and clients.

"When trust is low, in a company or a relationship, it places a hidden "tax" on every transaction: every communication, every interaction, every strategy, and every decision is taxed, bringing speed down and sending costs up. I experience that significant distrust doubles the cost of doing business and triples the time it takes to get things done." - Stephen Covey. I believe that companies already providing the basic level of customer service will be able to survive through a recession. Still, those companies that go above and beyond will excel during these often hard economic times. Everything from your customer service, to your sales funnel, to your service offerings needs to be audited to ensure you are providing the best service to your customers.

Running a small business during the often slow summertime can be difficult. Still, instead of getting discouraged, I encourage you to consider what you can do to prepare for the holiday season. Summer is an excellent time to tie up loose ends you may have, like those projects you haven't finished, those blogs you haven't updated (or written), or that collaboration you have been putting off. Use this time wisely. Make the long days of Summer count in your favor.

The recent changes to Instagram have the small business community in an uproar. Many have had conversations about leaving the platform for good, while others have done what I believe is the best solution: Making peace with the platform. You see, I think that Instagram is experiencing an identity crisis. The platform has gone from a Creator First Channel to Distribution First Channel and right back again. Now Instagram is trying to find its way back to being creator-oriented without leaving everyone behind. My advice to you, give the platform time to finish making some adjustments, but always maintain your marketing diversified.

As small business owners, we spend so much time discussing the importance of business automation, processes, and systems. It's one of the things we talk about most and often spend time warning novice small business owners (and entrepreneurs) as they embark on their journey. For a podcast host, however, automation isn't that simple and even less so when we are sick. That is why it's important to understand that some things simply can't be automated and in business, we must accept these things even with the consequence they can bring to our content marketing efforts.

During a Senate hearing on Wednesday, December 8, 2021, Adam Mosseri mentioned that Instagram would be bringing back the chronological feed in the form of two different versions.

Let's dive into what this means for you and your Instagram marketing strategy for 2022.
