When it comes to Instagram, there are 3 keys to success:

1. Post to your feed 3-4 times per week.

2. Hop on stories daily.

3. Engage at least 30 minutes a day.


Engagement time is CRUCIAL because, to put it simply, if you aren’t actively engaging on Instagram, your content isn’t getting seen.

But when you engage daily, people engage back! And the more someone interacts with your stories and posts, the more likely it is that they will will keep seeing your content.

So if you want to connect with more people and want more eyes on your account, you’ve got to get in there y’all!!


Ready to crush daily engagement and watch your growth skyrocket?

All it takes is 30 minutes a day and here’s how to break it down:

Spend 10 mins engaging on your feed

Start scrolling and show your audience some love! Be sure to leave meaningful comments (more than 4 words) and start conversations.

Spend 10 minutes engaging with stories

Watch then and message it up. BONUS TIP: Work your way backwards! Chances are you are missing a lot of people’s stories because they are at the very end, so start with the last story and go backwards to check in with folks you have been MIA from.

Spend 10 minutes engaging with hashtags

Choose 2-3 niche hashtags that are relevant to you and your business. Click “Recent” so you are looking at the latest posts and choose a few posts that resonate with you and engage.


Done and done! In just 30 minutes you have connected with new people AND shown your audience love (and they will most likely give it right back) ❤️

And I promise, once you get into a rhythm and see how effective it is, you will love engagement time.

I spend the first part of my day engaging with IG and genuinely look forward to it because of the amazing people I have connected with. So make it a habit by getting a cup of coffee, turning on some good tunes, and get your scroll on!
