Using Instagram for your Online Business

Well that's a good start!



Since I started my online business, well being a dropshipper is a real deal too, (though it sounds like you are basically running others business but who cares? I got some profit as well and the golden experience from it before having my own line of products,) I started to get serious with my instagram account, and I have few of it actually. My real life page and the business page.  

If you are an instagram user, you will get the idea why people start selling using instagram. It is basically a place where people look for cool pictures, and everyone loves pictures, added with some empowering captions and hashtags that are helpful to search for certain categories that you are interested in. it is a great place to introduce your product. And I did exactly that, selling my products through instagram, and became an instagram addict. 

But it is actually so hard to get true followers except for those who follows you back after you followed her/him and I certainly won't spend my hard to earn money to buy my followers (daaa). I feel like people did not really cross my feed because I barely gets any like for the pictures I post. And I did more research. I found a whole bunch of good tips and of course this is the hot topic I always discuss with my husband. He has lots of ideas and way out for me, and I experiment it on my instagram, not shockingly some of it did work!

Lets crack this out.

So, when you come across a feed at you Instagram home, what makes you want to see the profile more?

I asked myself that exact question. And since I am a mother of two, food lover and fashion lover, things that would attract me are kids, food, cooking tutorials, parenting tips, and people who wears nice clothes and shot nice pictures with cool backgrounds.


  • Organized Instagram profile.           I will be more attracted to a certain profile if it is so well organized, and I wont think twice to follow that account. For example those with short and sweet captions and less hashtags. Those with clean filters, and pastel like layout. I will tend to spend more at this kind of profile. And I did try it out on my business account.
  • Beneficial content.           I posted something beneficial for my followers for instant, I posted daily quotes and health tips. That attracted a lot of profile visit too and contributes to some likes. And still, it is a fact, thus no footprints or respond from the audience. 
Wow oh wow. People seems to love it too! 

So worth all content planning and the changes I make to that page. My follower started to grow, and the happiest of all is that, a lot of people visit my page! But the problem is, I did not get any footprints. And I realize, this is because I posted facts, not something that I want my followers to engage with.  


I crack my head and observe the instaFamous accounts. I noticed some of them really make engagement with the audience for example, they write captions that will lead the audience to drop some comments.

Its either questions or asking for tips or making some cliche, half crazy and controversial statement (which I don't dare to do haha) so that they will get as many respond from them. Wow. That is hard, and I am on my way to it. 

Why am I so serious about this instagram thing?

Because people don't do facebook anymore. I still have my facebook account but that is mainly because I read my BH there or sometimes Harian Metro and some viral stuffs. I barely opened my facebook everyday, unlike instagram, I opened it like every hour! Its an addiction, I know right! 

And you think I, a 29 years old, full time working half time doing business mother of 2 is still addicted to this thing despite always complaining of not enough time to do my OTHER  things but spare precious time for instagram, would it not be the best place to reach for potential buyers? I ask myself the same question too, thus the addiction :D 

Assalamualaikum, loves!

Jadi Dropship? Tak Rindu Jadi Doktor Ke?

Alhamdulillah bila dapat soalan macam ni, acik tak rasa sendu ataupun menyesal atau segala yang berkaitan dengan perasaan negatif tersebut, malah dengan bangganya acik akan cakap, RINDU! 

rindu nak buat C-Section, rindu adrenaline rush lari lari sampai semput/ jatuh tergolek, rindu nak dengar suara babies crying out loud lepas dah lepas keluar dari perut ibu, rindu staffs yang baik baik tu,  Tapi walaupun rindu tak semestinya acik mahukan itu semua dalam hidup ni dah. That was just one pit stop, serve as memory and considered as best experience in life.

Alhamdulillah I am liking my new routine, which I live by heart now. Banyak benda acik boleh belajar, banyak benda acik boleh bagi tumpuan, terlalu banyak benda acik mampu resume lepas kerja.

I am born to be a doctor, and I will be one, but that does not mean I can only be a doctor. I am also something elses I want to be. And by choosing this path, Alhamdulillah I can be all that I want to be, tamak kan? hihi. But You ONly LIve Once (YO…

Al Fatihah MH17

Few months ago we were praying for MH370 and personally I am still praying that we will get some solid, valid and logical news about MH370. And now, my tear and condolences goes to the family of MH17 passengers and cabin crews. Allahurabbi. What is it with Malaysia nowadays? I am honestly freaking out. Sigh. 
MH370 tragedy really hit me. Though I have no one to shed my tears for, I have no relatives (nauzubillah) no friends or no acquaintance at all on that plane, but my heart breaks every time I read the news about it. Allahu Allah. And when I went to KLIA few times during that disaster, I broke down when I saw few family members who were still there waiting for any news and hoping for their love one to come back. It was heartbreaking. 
Recent catastrophe of  MH17 is really shocking. There were video footage of the scene and I could see dead bodies everywhere. They say no one survive the disaster but lets hope, lets just hope and pray that that is not true. Lets pray that a mother c…
