Many of these are small mistakes that can be fixed with a little time and resources, but they’re things that can flush your credibility down the drain fast.  The trick to overcoming these mistakes is to recognize them and their causes so you can avoid them in the first place.  This prevents bad habits from developing while forming the backbone of a successful Instagram marketing campaign.
