Why visually appealing feed is important?
Everyone likes to see things that are beautiful to their eyes and mind. Each brand has it’s unique personality and style. You must have heard about the term - ‘brand persona’.
Your followers or to-be followers will attract to your account only if you are providing them value and if you have posts that are pleasing to their eyes, it’s a cherry on top 🙂 I have shared my Instagram feed where I used Canva to create these beautiful posts.
