Instagram is THE place to be for product sellers in 2021 (and beyond). From the new shopping tab, to in-app buying for customers, Instagram is making it easier than ever before for small businesses to connect with their customers and sell more without being “salesy.”
But it’s not as easy as just posting your product photos every now and then – Instagram is powerful tool for businesses, but it requires intention, consistency, and a focus on connecting with your followers (not just selling to them).
Treating your Instagram like a catalogue is a one-way ticket to Cricketsville – meaning no engagement, and no sales. But it’s SO hard to figure out what to post!
All that is about to change, my maker friend.

“I highly recommend Makers Rock IG. I’d been using Instagram for a while and this class was a real revelation – the first thing I learned was how much I didn’t know! I now have a much better understanding of how to use hashtags, and also the point of stories. I’ve recently had a complete revamp of my approach and I’m already starting to see the benefits.”

Hey, I’m Amy
I’m a professional product photographer who knows her stuff – but what’s even more important is that I know how to teach efficient, effective photography practices in the most simplified, step-by-step way. No muss, no fuss, and no over-your-head technical jargon. Just straight-forward information that you need to know.
All of my courses and tools are developed with non-photographers in mind, so they’re simple and to the point. I don’t need to show off how much I know with big words or fancy setups – my goal is to have my students taking gorgeous photos for their businesses as quickly and easily as possible.
“I really enjoyed – and learned a LOT from – the Makers Rock IG training. It gave me a much better understanding of how to effectively use hashtags and stories as well as creating a professional and effective profile. I’m still working on putting everything I learned into practice because there was so much there, but I am able to be much more deliberate now with everything I do in IG. I definitely recommend this training!”
