57 | How to Use Stories to Increase Your Reach with Hilary Prall

Today I had the pleasure of chatting with Hilary Prall. Hilary is an interior designer and blogger who loves to thrift and upcycle. Hilary worked retail for years but eventually needed a change. She turned to design and blogging and when that took off, she just kept going! Hilary keeps her content authentic and personable and is full of creative ideas. I loved hearing the ways Hilary is reaching new followers, selling some of her designs, and utilizing her social media accounts. Make sure you listen in for some great tips on making the most of Instagram stories, giving value to your followers, and a first-hand account of Pinterest lives.

In this episode, we cover:

  • How Hilary started blogging and ended up where she is today
  • Keeping your Instagram stories relatable and authentic
  • Why you shouldn’t take it personally when people unfollow you
  • Ways to monetize your love for thrifting
  • How to host a decor swap
