Instagram Small Business Mentorship Programme


Millions of small businesses are thriving on Instagram. Did you know that 90% of people on Instagram follow a business, 84% want to discover new products on it, and 130 million people 'tap' to reveal a shopping tag each month?

Small Business Britain has partnered with Instagram to offer you the chance to benefit from their first UK mentorship scheme – giving your business the opportunity to learn about content creation, marketing and social commerce from the best creators, successful founders and Instagram experts, all in the run up to the holiday shopping season.

The five successful small businesses will benefit from:

  • A content workshop afternoon with one of the UK’s top Instagram creators, covering creative tips and tricks, and developing a three-month Instagram content plan.
  • An hour-long virtual coaching session with a business mentor.
  • Three monthly hour-long sessions with an Instagram product expert, to discuss how to best use Instagram for Business.
  • £1,000 worth of Instagram ad credits - to support your growth ambitions.

All entry details are below. Those who apply but are not picked for this mentorship programme in partnership with Small Business Britain will still receive a specially curated digital toolkit of best practice guides for social commerce for Instagram.

Deadline for entry submissions is 19th September and winners will be contacted after 27th September. The mentorship scheme will run between October and December 2021.
