In the digital age, many clients expect a presence on social media channels. This workshop introduces the Instagram platform, which is particularly relevant for photographers. Which functions should I know? How can I use different formats such as carousels, stories or reels effectively and what do I need to know about the algorithm? How do hashtags and clever captions increase visibility? Last but not least, the question of how to build a sustainable reach in a target group that is really interested in what I offer. Participants will receive impulses for developing their own strategies as well as tips on how to produce creative content on a regular yet time-saving basis.
