Stop Posting To Instagram And Hire Someone To Do It For You

Instagram has proven to be the fastest growing platform for our sellers using Soldsie, but there’s no way to automate posting to the platform. This means you have to physically create and post to Instagram via the native app on mobile which can be very time consuming. Recently we did a study on the correlation between increased posting and revenue growth from Instagram which means your business should be posting consistently 3 to 9 times a day on the platform.

We recognize you may not have the time or resources to post or hire someone to do it for you. So to make it easier for you, we’ve gone ahead and done the research for you. Introducing your new virtual employee from CloudPeeps! We put out a job posting and received over 30 applications and these are the 5 best peeps we found. To hire them, you simply have to click on their profiles below or email hello@cloudpeeps.com for help. Also, receive a one time $50 credit towards your first hire if you use code: Soldsie-communityfun via email to their billing department. All of the prices quoted are for 3 posts a day.
