1 - Poor quality images of your personal life: pics of your kids, nature walks, gigs, friends' weddings, breakfast, etc. UNLESS your brand has been professionally build around your persona and the images are aesthetically pleasing.
2 - Photo grids. Making a collage of 4 or 9 images in one post is a huge no-no that was ok in 2009. It's a waste of content, it doesn't sell products, and it does.not.look.good.
3 - Unedited images of jewellery with fingerprint marks, dust, or white tack still attached.
4 - Edited images... that have been touched up with Instagram filters, with the Vignette being the worst thing anyone can ever apply to a photo.
5 - Images of expensive jewellery being held by unkept hands. Taking images of jewellery in your own hands makes pro manicure a business expense & a tax write-off. Go wild!
6 - Bad quality images.
7 - Graphic posts NOT made on Canva, unless you're a graphic designer. It's a tool of every business owner's dreams!
