Podcast Episode 106: Instagram Insights with Becky Helms

This week on the Dear Handmade Life podcast I’m chatting about Instagram insights with illustrator Becky Helms of The Pink Samurai. Becky and I chat about dealing with social media overwhelm, creating content for Instagram, batching your work, growing your following organically, the importance of determining your Instagram goals and more.

Thank you to our sponsor for this episode:


Wouldn’t it be awesome if you could reach new ideal customers in an organic way via an introduction from another small business that they already love?

Ampjar is an organic way to market your product or service, focused on small business tapping into each other’s audiences. Ampjar matches you with similar brands in their community and then shares your ads and allows you to share other brands’ ads through your newsletter, instagram stories and website. You can create your own ads or let Ampjar create them for you based off of your existing content.

It’s like when a friend tells you about their favorite product at a party. Except instead of a friend’s, it’s a brand you know and love and instead of a party, it’s an ad on your Instagram stories, newsletter or website post-checkout page.

Ampjar believes truly authentic brands are stronger together. Apply today at ampjar.com, they’ve made their platform free through July 1, 2020. Visit them at ampjar.com
