Old Town, Arlington, WA.

Instagram Class in Old Town, Arlington, WA.

October 1, 2019


I drove up to Arlington this Tuesday morning to teach an Instagram marketing class to local real estate brokers. It was a lovely drive up from Renton. Just north of Everett on Interstate 5 I'm passing by Smith Island.

We started our class at Moe's Coffee Bar on Olympic Avenue. It's a beautiful October 1st.

We chatted about content creation, hashtags, stories, Google's Snapseed photo editor and a few tips about taking photos with smartphones then hit the streets to explore the shops in downtown Arlington.

We stopped out front of Arlington Velo Sport Bicycle Shop on Olympic Avenue. There are so many wonderful locally owned small businesses here in town.

We didn't have time to stop here, but I just loved this inviting scene at Playa Bonita Mexican Restaurant!

I'm talking to the group about the three axioms of hyper-local marketing... location, lifestyle, and community as we're walking down the street to Arlington Hardware taking lots of photos.

We crossed the street to gather in Legion Memorial Park to chat about marketing strategies, edit our content and posting to Instagram. 

In the parking lot I just had to stop and chat a few minutes with this guy and his beautiful 1955 Ford Thunderbird.

It was my kind of day and a great group of local real estate pros that made for a really fun class. We were so fortunate to have such a perfect early autumn day to play outside in lovely downtown Arlington.

Shout out to Moe's for hosting our get together! Great treats, super friendly crew and a fine cup of coffee! Thank You!!
