Instagram for Beginners – Sydney Course

There are over 1 billion monthly users on Instagram, making it one of the largest social media platforms around. Instagram is a great platform to help people connect with each other and with businesses. It is a wonderful visual platform that replies more on images than words to convey meaning.

This Instagram for Beginners Workshop is perfect for people who want to understand the basics of how Instagram works and how to use it to connect to other individuals and businesses. In one platform, you can follow your family’s travel adventures, see your grandchildren grow up, see the latest trends and create community online with businesses.

You will learn how to set up an account, how to take a photo, how to edit your photo and upload it, and how to use hashtags.
