17: Why You Can't Have A Carbon Copy Brand Experience
We all love a good Canva template...but what happens when dozens of small businesses start to use these templates in the same way? You enter the sea of sameness - and this is NOT how you stand out from your competition.  How many times have you popped onto Instagram and started to scroll through your feed just to feel like you’ve already seen half of what’s appearing? That’s because people are using the same design templates across all different industries. With little to no customization, these templates have polluted the online space. There’s nothing to differentiate Sally Jo’s Beauty Bar from Samantha’s Brow Boutique anymore and that’s where the problem lies.  We’re so inundated with these templates that subconsciously when we see these appear in our newsfeed, we feel as if we’ve already seen the post and don’t want to devote any more mental energy to look at it - even though it’s completely different content for an entirely different company. --- This Episode Was Made Possible By: The Free Content Creation Planning KitOur content creation planning kit is every small business owner's blueprint to getting started with content marketing.  Register for this free resource by visiting https://www.marissapane.com/content-creation-kit The Content Catalyst Membership This membership is the most strategic DIY approach to social media marketing you'll experience. You'll receive guidance and direction from a certified social media strategist each month as well receive a full month's worth of content ready for you to customize and implement.

12: 2022 Instagram Marketing Trend Predictions
While we don't know for sure what 2022 will bring to the ever-changing social media landscape, I have a few marketing predictions to get your Instagram strategy started.   Incoming 2022 Instagram Marketing Trends:  People are looking for simple, easy-to-digest content. Keep your content educational or relatable. The algorithm is going to showcase *relevant* content from others based on the accounts you're already following. So stick to your niche and don't post all willy nilly. Now is the time to stick to your strategy! Instagram wants to keep you on the app - go figure - so if you're a product-based business, integrate your products into their shop features for the most exposure. Keep it real - people follow you for YOU. Integrate your personality into your content and don't be afraid to share your thoughts on trending topics (even if you disagree with the norm).   Resources Mentions: Content Creation Planning Kit Content Catalyst Membership Clickup (Use Code MARISSAPANE for 15% off your first year of either the Unlimited or Business Plan)

If you're not already familiar with my proprietary system for converting Instagram followers into clients. Let me introduce you to The WAND Method™.  The WAND Method is a four-step framework that you can implement today, to start using Instagram as a client converting machine. The only catch is... before you can start using the WAND method you need to have your ideal customer completely mapped out. The first step of the WAND method is to WOW your audience at first glance. But in order to do that... you need to Identify Your Ideal Customer. Without properly identifying exactly who your business is serving, the content you create will be misguided. All content you publish should be directly talking to your ideal customer or ICA. If you’re unsure of who your Ideal Customer truly is, get ready because we're about to break down everything you need to know about defining who your ICA is. More of a DIY, workbook type of gal?
