In the final episode of 2020, I’m excited to get back to my roots and talk about Instagram dogs with Courtney Lynne, aka the Dog Mom Boss. Courtney talks about how she got started growing her Instagram account when she got her first dog Hammy a couple of years ago and grew the account into something where she shares her passion, makes some money and now, teaches other pet influencers.
When Reels came out, Courtney hosted an amazing 10 day challenge. In this conversation, we compare notes on how to host an engaging challenge and why participating in viral video trends gives us a fun opportunity to be creative and connect with our community. We also talk about new features on Instagram like Guides and how they can extend the lifespan of our content. Plus… Courtney has a brand new podcast of her own where she’s going to be talking about how to make a living as a dog mom boss (among other things!)
