As we head into 2017, Award winning Financial Planner and Personal Finance Coach Dominique Broadway blesses the guest chair to teach money management tips for entrepreneurs. Dominique is the Founder of Finances De•mys•ti•fied & The Social Money Tour. Shortly after launching Finances De•mys•ti•fied, she was named one of the top Financial Advisors in the United States for Millennials at the age of 28. What I love about Dominique is that she has transformed the reputation of personal finances into a social experience by making it engaging, easy to understand and even trendy.

Her demystified financial advice, has been highlighted on Yahoo!, Black Enterprise, Marketwatch.com, Ebony, USA Today and much more.

On this episode, Dominique shares:

I’m checking in with an update on all things social media marketing: Specifically, Instagram. I have heard many of you ask: How can I organically grow my audience on Instagram? I see this question come up in most of the groups I am in and with most entrepreneurs. Now in Episode 7, I broke down How to Grow Explode Your Social Media Audience with Five Steps and Zero Dollars.

There, I went step by step through my methodology and the steps I used to grow my Instagram over 1000% in a year. Today, I am here with updates, updates. As you know, you miss a day you miss A LOT when it comes to social media. Case in point: The last time we spoke, there was no Instagram stories and certainly no Instagram LIVE.

  • What’s working and what’s not on Instagram How to find your target audience on Instagram - *NEW INSIGHTS*
  • Why you CAN start a business on Instagram
  • What you can accomplish with even 30 minutes a day on Instagram
