VRS019 – Sue B Zimmerman the Instagram Gal

My guest today in episode 19 is Sue Zimmerman – a social media powerhouse, entrepreneur extraordinaire, and thoroughly nice person!  Since starting her first business at age 13, Sue’s passion and drive for helping others to achieve success has had her founding eighteen separate businesses which made me ask which hour of the week she managed to sleep.  Her answer to that question says a lot about her energy and motivation!

Sue is widely known as the Instagram Gal, and in this episode she shares why she believes that Instagram is a solid addition to a social media marketing strategy for vacation rental owners.  From basic tips on creating a profile to suggestions on getting known in a niche, Sue’s wealth of knowledge of this platform should motivate you to give it a try.  And, if you think Instagram is just for your kids and grandkids, you may change your mind after hearing it’s a huge part of Sue’s marketing strategy for her online and offline businesses.
