Insiders Tips on Using Instagram for Your Jewelry Biz

Interview with Robin & Sue B Do!

Tracy and I have been fascinated by the new social media darling Instagram and wanted to learn more about it so we contacted Sue B. Zimmerman, the Instagram Gal! Sue knows Instagram like no other and I was psyched to sit down (virtually) with her and chat about why Instagram is so fab.

With all of the different social media options out there, why should a jewelry designer be on Instagram?

We hope this interview helped shed some light on Instagram and we want to hear from YOU!

    I LOVE Instagram and definitely use it to promote my biz. For me though, like Twitter, my posts are a mix of my daily life, peeks behind the scenes in the studio and photos of newly completely custom projects. Although I have lots of follower and well hearted photos, truthfully, I haven’t gotten much traffic to my website from Instagram. I still love it for the easy filters and even use some of those pictures for my website too. I also share all of my photos to Twitter & Tumbler and only a few to Facebook as I don’t want to overwhelm my family and friends. Btw, I’m “@MerCuriosJewels” on Instagram if your interested. 🙂 xo, MJ

    I really liked the info Sue provided about her experience with Instagram, and considering at least 2 other people told me I should open an account on it I will do that soon.
    I already promote my jewelry on FB, Pinterest, and Google Plus therefore I was weary of opening yet another social media account, but now I am convinced. My son who is only 12 has been on Instagram for 6 months now and he loves it more than any other social media.
    Thank you guys so much for posting the video!

    Enjoyed this interview, thank you Robin and Sue! Just joined Instagram myself not too long ago and I find I like it because I have always enjoyed taking pictures, much more than writing. 🙂 Looking forward to learning more about Instagram for both fun and business.

    I love what she said about behind the scenes and letting customers get to know your through your brand. I use Instagram a lot, and it’s a great way to get feedback on designs as you go, even if you don’t have a ton a followers, if you hash-tag things that people are looking for, lots of people will see your posts.
    After this I really need to write a better Bio, I don’t even know if I have one on there at all.
    Thanks so much! This was great!
