Tips & Tricks: Instagram Stories

Instagram Stories, introduced in August of 2016 to rival Snapchat’s concept of live photos and videos which disappear after 24 hours, has caught on over the past 5 years as over 500 users post Instagram Stories each day.

Importance of Creativity in Social Media

The average American is exposed to 4,000 to 10,000 ads per day, so making your advertising stand out is crucial to getting your message out there and growing your business.
