When it comes to Instagram, there are endless opportunities to reach your ideal audience and create organic and loyal connections (with as little as a few hundred followers). It all starts with a clear strategy.

In this session, Nat and Ang will breakdown three strategies to help your brand & business stand out on Instagram.

About our Speakers

Nat Caron – Brand Photographer

Nat started her career in Photography June of 1999, and has been running her photography business and studio since September 2002. After 10 years of solely working in the wedding and portrait industry, she began to work more and more with commercial clients…in hopes of getting her weekends, and truthfully, her life back.

After her 3rd son was born in December of 2015 she knew Weddings and portraits would have to take a back seat to her new passion of commercial and business clients. It was a tough decision, because Nat loves Love! And those wedding couples became very special to her. But she truly loved seeing businesses grow. A business growing meant also watching those individuals grow in their life. It TRULY changed peoples lives as she saw them embrace pride and joy. They learned that they had control of their time and life. And lastly, their wealth grew. Which meant watching them give back to their community. It was beautiful to watch this cycle. And knowing she could help more people by helping them with Social Media Workshops, teaching photography, and how to grow their audience and clientele, she also knew being a part of an online community and podcast meant spreading that education even farther.

Angela Swann-Doyon – Social & Photography Stylist

Ang’s start in business began like many others… First, a twenty-five cent lemonade stand and eventually upgrading to handmade bracelets for a dollar. At one point, there were homemade cakes for sale, but ‘Angie Baby Cakes’ never quite took off (and it made one big mess in her kitchen). But one thing was clear, Ang had a keen business sense, a creative marketing talent and passion for people. With over 13 years of combined marketing, social media and event & wedding planning experience, she realized that she could merge her marketing talents with her creative eye for style and design a business that helps others with their visual marketing strategy.

Many of her earliest childhood photos show her rocking a microphone, so it was only fitting that she now be co-host of the five-star rated podcast, Instagram for Business with The Social Focus.

In her spare time, she loves to travel, sip good wine, watch old Oscar acceptance speeches and spend time with her beautiful son and husband.
