When creating the Marketing Solved Instagram account, Instagram expert, Tar’Lese Rideaux and I sat down and really talked about the way we wanted the account to be presented.

6) Tenley Molzahn – This bachelorette babe uses frames to make her account stand out. Using apps like “Afterlight” allow you to add white frames to your images which can create spacing around each picture.



7) xoAmandaFrances – Here’s another brilliant way to use frames. Adding the circle frame to her images REALLY helps her account stand out on Instagram. Very few people are sharing circle shaped images so this is eye catching and unique. A GREAT marketing strategy to use on Instagram.
