Here are probably the most common carousel mistakes you can make starting off 🙄

We’ve probably checked off all of them, so we’re here to make sure you don’t ❌

Starting off it’s inevitable to make mistakes, most of the mistakes that you’re going to make, you’re going to learn to overcome through experience.

This carousel is going to give you an idea of the ones you are most likely going to make so you attempt to avoid them as much as possible.

Now for those of you experienced carousel makers, you’re probably not making any of these now, but do you guys remember a time when you have? 🤭

You might be making these mistakes, you might be not. 
But we've all had an encounter with at least one of these.

Letter fonts & sizes  I made the realization here a bit later on when I started scrolling through our feed and realized how much bigger and bulkier the text was, it was like I wasn't really giving the text any room to breathe. So now I downscale my text every time, even if I think it might be a little small. In this case your better off keeping it small. :)

Bland content  you've seen it, wcl 've done it don't o it. 
If you don't have any content to put out, don't make filler carousels, your followers will see that you don't prioritize quality, so they won't prioritize you. You won't grow your page and you'll lose potential leads. Here's my advice to you. Don't post for the day. Reconnect and re-access your thoughts, ideas and info, then get back to posting.
