@alesnesetril Love the design of this. Congrats on shipping it!

What's the most common mistake (beginning) creatives make with regards to self-promotion on Instagram?
@marckohlbrugge Hey-o, thanks!

I think it can go as simple as people not being patient enough in the beginning. I saw a lot of people starting out really well (great content, posting on regular basis etc.), but they gave up after a few weeks. Their expectations were really high, but they didn't want to do the "work" in long term.

Then the second (connected to the first one a bit) could be too much overthinking to make everything beautiful since day one instead of trying out tools, experimenting with styles or messing around with the platform itself.
@alesnesetril Some great tips. Thanks Ales. I'm often guilty of the second one. Wanting to come up with the perfect plan before starting. I agree though it tends to be more productive to just get going and fine-tune things along the way.
@marckohlbrugge Haha, to be honest, I'm sometimes guilty as well. The ebook is also a reminder for myself sometimes..
