Welcome to the 20th issue of SeniorInspire the newsletter!

This week was a busy one with the release of the next issue of SeniorInspire the magazine, the first to ever feature the winners of our annual 100 to follow contest.

Who would have thought when we ran our very first 30 Photographers to Watch in 2017 contest that it would blossom into this! Not me, that's for sure!

Thanks to everyone who already purchased their copy of the magazine and especially to those of you who sent me messages to let me know how much you enjoyed it. A LOT goes into the magazine's creation , but you all make it 100% worthwhile!

Enjoy the issue...

Reel ideas you can use today

Back in Issue 18 we included a link to a tutorial that will get you up and running with Instagram Reels in no time.

Apparently Reels are where it's at right now because everywhere I look I see people talking about how the Instagram algorithm is showing some serious love to accounts using Reels.


So, if you still haven't created your first Reel (guilty as charged!), here are some ideas I found on the internet to get you started...

  • Introduce yourself
  • Turn a photo carousel into a reel
  • Meet the team
  • Reply to top comments from your latest post
  • Share your workspace or studio
  • IG versus reality reel
  • Share a quick tip
  • Answer FAQs
  • Share a sneak peek
  • Display your products
  • Explain the inverse square law (lol, just checking to see if you're paying attention)

And Finally

Going to leave you today with this quote I literally just saw as I was hitting publish. It comes from actress/comedian, Tina Fey...

“You can’t be that kid standing at the top of the waterslide, overthinking it. You have to go down the chute.”
