Before thinking about what Instagram account to follow or not, I assume you or your business is already on Instagram. Seriously you should be on the platform as it is where most of the action happens.
Not only do you get to know the trends in your industry and how best to adapt to them, you will also get the opportunity to interact with some of the people your business serves. This means you get cheap feedback real fast.
But this is by the way. In this article, I am looking at revealing some of the best Instagram accounts entrepreneurs should follow. Ready? In no particular order, let’s row.
Grant Cardone (@grantcardone)
Grant Cardone is a very popular name in the personal development space today. He is best known for his 10X strategy as is heavily portrayed in his book with the same name. But beyond the success of his books, Grant is a real estate investor with an impressive portfolio to his name.
On his Instagram account, Grant shares inspiration on a daily basis. You will find his motivational quotes very interesting too, and as expected, you get to enjoy some random business tips.
Gary Vaynerchuk (@garyvee)
It does not matter what platform you stumble upon Gary’s content, chances are that you will be impressed in less than 60 seconds of consuming any of his rich content. Beyond his exploits as an author and speaker, Gary is a fulltime serial entrepreneur. He owns VaynerX and VaynerMedia both of which are making waves in the digital world.
When you follow Gary, you will get a daily dose of inspiration and insight to some of life’s biggest intricacies. But the thing about Gary’s version of daily nuggets is that he is very realistic about them. He tells the truth as it is – raw.
Harvard Business Review (@harvard_business_review)
Enough of the daily inspiration. Harvard Business review is a prestigious publication of the reputed institution which covers practically all topics related to entrepreneurship, business, leadership, innovation, strategy and work place relationships.
Typically, the publication creates thought provoking content which are often linked to full articles for the intellectual satisfaction of the curious mind. Learn from professionals who have taken the time to read, analyse and provide the cream of the crop for you.
Richard Branson (@richardbranson)
He is one of the few billionaires of the world who have an engaging Instagram presence. Sir Richard does on Instagram what he does on LinkedIn, which is to deliver rich business and life advice to his loyal fan base.
With about 50 years of experience in the business of being in business, there aren’t many billionaire mentors who will guide you better than the jolly owner of the Virgin brand – one of the world’s most valuable brands.
Startup Creative (@startupcreative)
Since Kaylene Langford founded this quarterly magazine, a myriad of business owners and freelancers have been featured in the most realistic way possible. Kaylene strives to not just showcase successful startup founders, but to reveal the intricacies of how they rose to the top.
While this certainly isn’t the biggest entrepreneur-centric account on Instagram, it manages to stand out in an interesting way. While most bigger accounts offer general business advice, Startup Creative speaks directly to you as an entrepreneur who’s just starting a project.
What do you do next? Don’t you think it is best to cut down on all the celebrity following and focus a little more on the people and brands that will make life as an entrepreneur a lot less stressful. And if you’re just starting out on Instagram or any social media platform, we can help you grow your audience and maximize each platform in a short period of time.
