Rank #2: 181: Beat The Algorithm: How To Rock Your Instagram Stories
Goal Diggers, we all know social media is one of THE best ways to get word out there about your business… but sometimes it can get tricky. Today, I wanted to focus on one specific facet of social media that rarely gets taught but can make a GIANT impact on how you’re engaging with your audience: How to ROCK your instagram stories! If you are not utilizing IG stories yet, it’s FINALLY time to get on board. And if you are… it’s time to make sure you are using it to its full potential because it is one of the most unique, impactful ways to move your business forward, engage with your fans in an authentic way, and expand your connection with your followers. Live video is a newer feature in the social media world and with additions like IGTV happening, it’s clear Instagram is sending us a message that if we aren’t using video yet, we better figure out our strategy with it. Essentially, we have a few different options to record ourselves, publish it, and chat with your followers/potential clients. It can be intimidating absolutely, but it is so incredible because it allows you to connect with your audience in real time (and beyond!) and adds an irreplaceable level of humanness and uniqueness to your brand. You essentially get to draw in your potential clients and spread your message in authentic way for free! Let’s dig in and get specific on the strategy around IG stories and many ways to utilize this feature— from swipe ups, photos, graphics, text overlay, live video, featured stories and MORE! You can use it from your personal or you business page, but regardless, there are certain tips to making sure your message gets across and properly received!

Rank #8: 228: Become an Instagram Influencer with These Tips (Puno)
Fact or fiction: Having tons of followers is the only way to get more partnership possibilities, more business opportunities, and by extension, more money. That’s totally FICTION. In the social media world of buying followers and the dreaded follow-unfollow game, the quality of your engagement with your audience is way more valuable than getting that ‘K’ next to your follower count. Micro-influencers are crushing the game and building dedicated, engaged followings that brands are leaning into and wanting to target. Puno is a digital entrepreneur and web designer. She founded @ilovecreatives, a platform for creatives to connect and she co-created PeopleMap.co, an Instagram marketing tool where you can strategically find, grow, and track your community. She’s also a YouTuber and takes the most epic photos with her cat. If you’ve ever wondered if micro-influencer partnerships are the right choice to market your business, or if YOU are a micro-influencer and you want to attract more partnerships and opportunities, this episode is rich with the details you need.

Rank #17: 125: 5 Lessons I’ve Learned from Joanna Gaines
When I wrote down goals for this podcast before I had recorded a single episode, she was at the top of my list for hopes on who to interview. It’s no secret that Joanna Gaines is my spirit animal, after watching her for years, she’s become a woman of inspiration in my life. You might know her as the queen of shiplap, the wife of Chip, the mom of four littles, and the mastermind behind Magnolia. Beyond just being an HGTV goddess, I’ve watched and learned so much from Joanna Gaines and since my biggest goal when starting this whole show was to have her come on the podcast, I figured I’d record an episode about what she’s taught me over the years just from watching her navigate the growth their business has seen. We are covering all the Joanna Gaines basics: being so authentically yourself, navigating living a “public” life with grace, chasing your faith, becoming a branding guru, and .... (any guesses on that 5th one?!) Beyond the shiplap and perfectly styled kitchens, I’ve been watching a woman who is changing lives through her ability to create connections while still maintaining what’s most important to her and through listening to the calls she is getting as her empire continues to grow and expand. I think we should all tag Joanna on Instagram and get her attention, because I’d love to hear her own take on her journey and what it’s looked like as they’ve navigated each season in the public eye! What do you say, Goal Diggers? Cheers to THE lady, Joanna Gaines!
