Imagine: Your Instagram is performing exceptionally well. Your posts get the most engagement that they ever have, and the followers are flooding in. However, you’re noticing that a lot of bigger brands are choosing to partner with the creators on TikTok. You have a TikTok, but so much of your time and attention is spent on Instagram that you haven’t had time to build it up to where you want it to be. While there is time to fix this, there is value in learning how to juggle the platforms at the same time so that your brand is strong across multiple platforms. 

We’ll cover some quick tips on how to master each platform.
