Have fun making The Lieutenant Wallet and growing your Instagram audience with the Instagram tips & tricks e-guide for leather crafters, Deyan
THE E-GUIDE “SADDLE STITCHING INSTAGRAM – TIPS & TRICKS FOR LEATHER CRAFTERS”
“The guide comes as a response to the many crafters reaching out to me with various questions on how I grew my account to over 50K followers. It is based on my experience with the platform and what I consider to be some of the best practices for small leather crafting (or other one-man-show) businesses on Instagram. It aims to make Instagram less stressful and much more enjoyable and fruitful experience in your leather crafting journey and in your efforts to grow your Instagram audience. Happy crafting (and Instagramming), Deyan”
