In this episode of the podcast, I’m joined by Laura Jane Barnes, a creative business strategist with a passion for Instagram.

Laura shares her journey from a fine art portraiture artist to corporate and eventually to her current role where she helps businesses grow sustainably on Instagram. We chat about her viral song, ‘It costs that much ‘cos it takes me f@@king hours!’ and creating engaging content.

Laura shared her tips for revitalizing your love for creating content, the importance of foundational marketing skills, and how to stand out in a saturated market. We also explore her experiment with a secret business to prove that it’s possible to grow from scratch without leveraging an existing audience.

This chat is packed with inspiration and practical advice for all you small business owner’s looking to fall back in love with Instagram!
