Your social media is an integral part of your brand. Aside from being the most used social media channel, it's a great way for people to be introduced to you, your style, your business, your services. Posting at least three times a week in the feed and daily if possible in Stories is ideal to grow your numbers. Adding in Reels at least weekly will also increase engagement.
Stories are great for showing day to day progress, behind the scenes of your team, portfolio features, your affiliate shop links, and personal stories that are related to design. Using a planning app such as Planoly, it is very easy to curate a month of content with a curated feed that you can easily add captions and hashtags to before posting.
