Having returned from a wonderful time away in the Isles of Scilly, now I’m back at my desk, completely refreshed. And I’m so looking forward to re-opening registration for my Instagram for Florists online course next Monday! During this week, I’ll be featuring a series of interviews with past students and you’ll be able to see and read about their amazing transformations. First up is Essex based flower grower and floral stylist Emma Spowage. Before we delve into her interview, let’s take a look at her wonderful Instagram transformation!
Since Emma started the course, she has gained over 2,000 followers, a 35% increase! The overall look of her Grid is so much more cohesive and I absolutely love her new on-brand Highlight Cover Images. She’s also uploaded a lovely new Profile Photo of herself, showing her followers the ‘face behind the flowers’. Plus she’s tweaked her Bio.
INTERVIEW WITH EMMA
What prompted you to sign up for the course?
I decided to sign up for the course because I felt I wanted to achieve a more consistently pleasing aesthetic to my profile with the intention of appealing to my ideal client.
What did you enjoy most about the course?
I enjoyed the course very much. As a very busy full time flower grower and floral stylist I found it particularly suitable for me as I could log in and follow the work at my own pace. And there were no time pressures to complete modules.
It’s now over 5 months since you first started the course, what has been the resulting impact on your Instagram account and your business?
I’ve certainly noticed a very positive result in my Instagram following and interaction with my account, which has led to more enquiries despite this being such a difficult year due to Covid-19.
What do you feel you’ve gained most from taking the course?
I feel I now understand the importance of having a recognisable brand represented by a cohesive looking grid. And how the images I post individually and collectively reflect my style of work. This subsequently impacts on my target audience.
Would you recommend the course to florists and others working in the floristry industry?
I would definitely recommend the course to others working in the floral industry, particularly to new, up and coming florists as Rona is so supportive and encouraging.
I’m so thrilled at Emma’s transformation! If you’d like to discover more about her business, simply head over to the Passionflowers by Emma Spowage website. And of course, please do visit Emma’s Instagram account.
