What exactly is close friends?
Close friends is a group on Instagram that will receive exclusive content through stories. I will do weekly Q+As only for close friends, share exclusive content, dive deeper into the steps of my projects as well as my thought process behind design decisions and problem solving and so much more!
Is this like subscriptions?
Similar concept, but this is free!
This does not cost money like subscriptions. Because it’s a free feature in Instagram, there are limitations. We can’t do exclusive lives and the content isn’t saved in a separate tab. However, you’ll know when new close friends content has been posted because my story bubble will turn green.
Notice how the bubble pops to the front and is green? That will help it stand out so it doesn’t get missed!
You’ll also be able to tell within the stories themselves, if something is a close friends post. You’ll see a green star like this one:
What kind of content should I expect?
Here are the types of things I post to close friends:
- More in-depth explanations and tutorials during projects
- Exclusive Q+As each week
- Early releases of info: project plans, updates, reveals, etc!
- Peep my brain: in-depth explanations behind my thought processes (design decisions, problem solving, etc)
- Hands on interactions: help me choose next projects, what type of content you’d like to see, and more!
Is this content posted daily?
As a busy mom of two kiddos and a business owner that’s a mainly one-woman show, I don’t do anything daily (except maybe coffee, and lots of it!)
I post to stories (for everyone) 4 days a week: Wednesday-Saturday
Close friends content will be shared throughout those days as well and how much and how little will depend on the project that’s happening at the moment. I would never bombard you with anything – I promise!!
Can I be removed if I decide I don’t like it?
Absolutely! You can simply send me a message on Instagram kindly asking to be removed and I will remove you! No feelings hurt, I totally understand that circumstances change and that’s 100% OK! If you choose to continue following along, you’ll go back to only seeing my regular stories.
