Instagram in an Instant - Bridgwater & Taunton College

Course Overview

Instagram is one of the best social media platforms for visual engagement, especially if you run a creative business.

Sharing photos and videos is an effective form of digital marketing, but you may be new to Instagram or want to take your account to the next level.

We will look at different creative Instagram accounts to see who uses it well, and to help you get inspired! We will get a plan of action together so that you can leave the session ready to schedule at least a week’s worth of posts.

We will be keeping this workshop small so there will be plenty of opportunity for some one on one advice and support. There will also be plenty of opportunities to network with your fellow creative friends.

  • Personal or Business account?

An apprenticeship has been the best option for me since I benefit from working in the industry as well as gaining a qualification. College days give me time to work on my assignments and explore features in the software I haven’t covered at work. During the rest of the week, I develop client relationships which help build my confidence and improve my ability to express ideas.
