This has been happening for the last two years but somehow managed to pass me by. This month I am taking part.
Here is a little history from the website.#MarchMeetTheMaker is a 31 day Instagram Challenge, set by Joanne Hawker (and solely Joanne!) that runs throughout March every year. But it's more than just a challenge, it's a creative community that comes together to show people what they can do. It's about building each other up, making new connections, telling your small business story, growing your confidence (and Instagram following) and most importantly, it's about putting yourself out there.
The challenge was created in 2016 by Joanne herself. At the time, she was in a bit of a creative rut with Instagram and couldn't find a way to pull herself out of it. Feeling determined, she went in search of challenge aimed at small creative businesses but couldn't find one. Feeling inspired, she went ahead and created a 31 day challenge which aims to show the different aspects of her business and asked her creative, small business friends to take part. And that's how #MarchMeetTheMaker was born. Little did she know that it would take off and gain 25,000 posts in 2016, a further 80,000 posts in 2017 and 165,000 posts in 2018!
It takes place on Instagram and the idea is to post a photo or video on a set topic each day.
Here are the list of topics.
So far I've managed to keep up but we are only 1 week in.
