Share Save-Worthy Home Tips
A tip that we like to implement into our own Instagram marketing is to focus on creating content that your audience will want to bookmark for later.
Share hacks, insights, resources and tips that people will want to refer back to.
This month, we have several save-worthy home tips like…

Create a text-based Reel
A text-based Reel are the easiest type of Reel to create!
Grab a trending audio (look for that upward arrow in the botton left the Reel as you scroll to see what audios are trending now)… then, create an animated video in Canva that’s no more than 5 seconds long.
