You may not know this, but my first official freelance service back in 2018 was Instagram marketing. To the tune of “Free! In exchange for your feedback + a review if you’d be so inclined”. Don’t worry, I began charging a whole whopping $30/hr sometime after that.

One of the greatest benefits of Instagram continues to be it’s multi-generational user attraction. Creators are continually working to ensure it’s fate a different one than say, Facebook. As a result, cue the seemingly-never ending changes that make you question if you’ll swear off the app forever.
