Social Media for Business: Instagram 101

December 5 @ 10:30 am - 12:30 pm

Class Description (Instagram)

Instagram is a fun and quirky way to share your life with friends through a series of pictures. Snap a photo with your mobile phone, then choose a filter to transform the image into a memory to keep around forever. Instagram allows you to experience moments in your friends’ lives through pictures as they happen. Imagine a world more connected through photos.

Instagram is an online mobile photo-sharing, video-sharing, and social networking service that enables its users to take pictures and videos, and share them either publicly or privately on the app, as well as through a variety of other social networking platforms, which you’ll learn how to do in this hands-on training course.

Using Instagram for business has its advantages and you can get started by coming to this course. For those who use Instagram in their personal lives, adding Instagram to the business mix is becoming an easier and easier decision. Used correctly, Instagram can be a highly-targeted, visual marketing channel for your online business. As you explore Instagram for your business, think about how you can use authentic photos and videos to help your business tell a visually compelling story.

You should already have an Instagram account created before attending this course. You will NOT learn how to set up or sign in to Instagram in this class. If you need help with that, please contact Barbara before the day of class at 219-707-1882.

Admission / Cost

The first 6 classes (Beginner Series) are $40 per class (totaling $240) or get the bundle for $200 (one class free).
The second 7 classes (Intermediate Series) are $50 per class (totaling $350) or get the bundle for $300.
Additionally, you can buy the Entire Bundle of all 13 classes (both sessions) for a discounted rate of $490, which is a savings of $100! When you buy this option, you get the training videos as well, so even if you can’t make one of the courses, you will still have access to the training material.


You will NOT be creating or setting up accounts in-class for any platform. You should already have a working profile for each platform. This is not a series of how-to-create-a-social-media-account. If you need help with this task, please contact Barbara before the day of class at 219-707-1882.

2.) Login Credentials for your corresponding site.
3.) Business Cards – for networking! 🙂

As the digital age progresses, cubicles are getting smaller. Companies are cutting budgets and sending workers to work from the isolation of home. Freelancers are trying to work from distracting coffee shops. Entrepreneurs are having their growth stifled by unreasonably expensive office space. People are out there trying to get work done in places not built for getting work done. A coworking space is a place for all these people, including you, to get work done and collaborate with others. How do you fit in? A community is made of people. You’re a people. We keep community development at the forefront of all our operations; from designing physical layouts to facilitating scheduled events, our goal is to empower you to never have to work alone, even if you’re working by yourself. Mutually beneficial synergies from people will different skills, experiences, and convictions are manifested at the tables of a coworking space. Will your question inspire the entrepreneur next to you? Can the advice from someone else help you connect the dots? Exactly how you fit in is up to you; a coworking community is like a jigsaw puzzle with no border pieces.
greenCOW Coworking’s motto is “Work from somewhere you ‘want’ to be, not ‘have’ to be” and I’m confident that this is the place that you do want to be!
