Oh no! still two more to go! That’s just one laborious lament too many, to be quite honest with you. If you have not got the heart for the work that needs to go into making your Instagram platform a splendiferous one that many visitors will fondly wish to return to, then you may as well leave this page. But this post does not give up that easily. Perhaps it has been a little too hard for you before. Perhaps you’ve felt that you just don’t have the talent to be a standout on Instagram. And perhaps Instagram is just no good for you.
Wrong, and wrong again. Hardly the fault of one the world’s most popular social media platforms that you’ve been failing so miserably. There’s one good reason why everyone, well, not quite that yet, why more and more people are turning to Instagram every year to promote themselves, no matter what their personal or professional motivations are. The platform is just so easy to use. And yet, here you are. You’ve been struggling to put one finger in front of the other. Readers, well, those who are in this condition at this time, quit your moping and starting practicing.
Yes, there you go. In front of the mirror. Start practicing your smiles. Not a Cheshire cat smile. That’s false and it’s too misleading. But a poker face does come in handy. It has to be used because maybe there will be days when you just don’t feel like smiling. But you have to. It’s right in the heat of the moment on your shop floor and you’ve just got to show the folks you’d like to see in your store what you’ve got to offer them today. No, it’s understandable. It’s not so easy to smile when your business feels like it’s down and out.
It doesn’t feel right when you’re being threatened with yet another foreclosure letter from the bank. But try your best. Work on that poker face of yours. There’s a reason why it’s called a poker face. You’ve at least heard of the card game. Part of the game is to not give any indication to your opponents around what you’re hiding behind your deck hand. That’s your poker face and no-one needs to know what you’re really thinking. Time is running out on this blog post and the boss is waiting for its delivery.
So, just why has it been so hard for you to motivate yourself to be more productive and proactive with your Instagram platform? Could it be that no matter how hard you’ve been trying; no-one seems to be taking any notice? Could be. That’s the harsh reality of being placed in a highly competitive space. But there’s one sure way to get you noticed. Just do this after you’ve left this note. Go and buy your likes for Instagram photos. There you go. Okay, boss, coming!
