Question from Doni B.
I’m interested in this class but I’m not an IG beginner. I have 8k followers on IG now and it’s part of my business. I’m looking for guidance on how to take it to the next level so wondering if this class will be too basic for me?
Answer from Liz F. Verified Student
Yes, too basic-I would NOT recommend this class for you.
Answer from Brenda L. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hi Doni! The Instagram and social media seminar is focused mainly on the photographic area of social media such as a photo app, filters, visuals, composition and beyond. As far as the rest, such as tags and the basics of social media, indeed that would be redundant if you already know it. I will send you an email with similar classes that might work for you. Thanks!

I got a ton out of the class. The teacher was friendly and gave a lot of great info. I am not too familiar with Instagram so I got a lot of new info. I got the feeling that the teacher adapts to the level of each class. I really enjoyed it.

The teacher was very good, but I was expecting more tips on photography because of the title of the class. I did learn some good things about Instagram in the last half hour, but the first part of the class was geared more to people who don't have Instagram yet. Would suggest renaming the class.
