Happy New Year! 2015 was such an amazing year and I'm really looking forward to what 2016 will bring! My sister and I wanted to start out the new year with a bang, so why not launch our first book right? :)
I sometimes am not able to keep up with my blog but I'm usually pretty active on instagram. My sister is also the same and we agree that instagram is our favorite social media app. And you probably know that we own t+j Designs and our business is everything to us. We are always working on our business and finding new ways to grow it. We really decided to grow our instagram this year based upon what we were seeing in the social media world and how it was translating to our business based on brand awareness, more visitors to our site, more customers and more sales. As with all our business decisions, we had put together a strategy before we launched into growing our instagram accounts and found that in a short time, we had stellar results! Before we knew it, each of our accounts (my sister's account, my personal account and our business account) had increased by 20,000 followers in less than 6 months! Before, when we weren't concentrating on it as much it took us nearly a year just to get 5,000 followers so to see this kind of growth made us very excited. In the recent months, we've gotten questions from lots of people asking us about the growth of our business, the growth of our instagram accounts and just general "how did you do it" type of questions. SO... we put our heads together and decided to write an ebook!
I do have to give credit to my good friend Tasha, who is not only an amazing coach to small business owners but who has written several very good, very informative ebooks for the small business owner. Because of her, I'd always been interested in writing an ebook but had no idea what to write about. We took a trip to Vegas together this summer and after a conversation about my instagram growth and what it has done for my business, she urged me to write an ebook about it. Her motivation really pushed me to really think about pulling my thoughts down and so on the plane ride home, the first draft was done! I sent it off to my sister and after a series of drafts and changes, we are so happy to finally be able to launch it.
