I feel that many of you feel overwhelmed when you think about email marketing. How can you actually use your email list? I totally get it and I want to help. It's another platform that seems less important than other things you have going on. If you can barely stay on top of your social media and blog content, then how the hell are you going to stay on top of a newsletter too? What do you even write about? Why is it important? 

If you had any of these thoughts, then I will do my best to explain.

Valid fear, my friends. 

Instagram has been cracking down on apps that use their platform in any way other than how it was meant to be used. Recently, an app called Instagress which is a bot software that comments on posts using your Instagram account was literally shut down. Instagress's official announcement said they were asked by Instagram but we have a feeling they were told by Instagram, through lawyers. Yikes! So it's natural to feel a bit weary when using an app in your Instagram strategy that might give you an edge on other users.
