Should I have a separate Instagram account for client work or should I mix personal and client work in one account?
A case study of low Instagram engagement – I studied the last three months of instagram posts from @NicoleKristinPhoto to uncover what’s causing her engagement to drop…
Why is my instagram engagement sinking? Does the algorithm hate me? Here’s what I learned when I took engagement data from top photographers and put it to the test.
I admit it…I have a strange obsession with hashtags. So much so that when I scroll through my grams, leisurely so, I’ll pause for a moment to take in someone’s hashtags. Usually, something will catch my eye and interest me – a new hub? A theme tag I’ve not seen before? For the non-HubHackers, I[…]
The Instagram Loop: A Brief History In approximately late 2016 to early 2017, the Instagram Loop made its appearance as a way to run giveaways on Instagram.

It’s widely encouraged and taught by the Insta-gurus and you can even pay for apps to hack into Instagram’s API (application programming interface. I googled it.) With these apps, you’ll usually pay a monthly[…]
I joined my first engagement group probably in Spring of 2016. I was a member for many months until I started HubHack, where I now run 10 engagement groups for members.
