Like “bootcamps”? Instagram making you crazy?
Here’s a great program by Robin Smith that will sort it all out for you!
Facebook’s Instagram. It’s been years since Facebook acquired Instagram in April 2012 for approximately US$1 billion in cash and stock.
The Instagram app is still growing every day. If you thought that joining Instagram seemed just to complicated, I have some great news! I have been trying to get going on Instagram for some time now.
I use my phone, an Android smart phone. I haven’t been able to find a really good course that would teach me all about the many steps needed on Instagram. That is, until I found a great 6-day Free Bootcamp series created by my friend Robin Smith. It is delivered to you by email and she gives step by step instructions with great informative videos. “6 Steps to Instagram Success with Robin Smith “
