To my fellow enthusiasts... I have created an Instagram account with the forum namesake to help drive new traffic and commentary to the forum as the first step into 2017 and forward for us. This will be open to change and I am welcome to suggestions, but here's my initial thoughts on what to accomplish.

1. For every 20 or so new unique and solid posts from new members, I will start to post some pictures of my collection. I will also repost good pictures other members add on here.
2. For Sale Section. Users with 100+ posts, I will do my best to put on IG and link to their page to promote their sale.
3. Suggestions??


What I need from all of you... Add this account and as I add pictures please help to retweet or whatever its called on IG to drive new users. As of today we have 3587 unique members. I do not want to just add members, I'd like to add more relevant content and discussion. There are 11,320 topics for discussion. That is what I would like to add to with good content.

#GWF (that just made me mildly ill to type)

Initially I was skeptical and shrugged off all social media for my glove business, but I've come around and done a 180. Instagram, if done well, will be a big boost. While there will always be things to dread about the glove community on IG, it's has more than enough upside to make this a good idea.

I just became the 3rd follower of @gloveworksforum!

7th follower here. I would suggest having at least one post on the IG account so potential followers will know it is a real thing. Maybe a distant shot of your glove collection or one good pic of a rare or very collectible glove. Or even a quick peek of some of the info available on this forum, like the historical Rawlings/black horse post

I have never been on Instagram. Time to evolve.

I hashtagged #gloveworksforum on a couple of my glove pics. I need to update some pics as it's now broken in and the palm is a bit black because I used some Japanese glove wax that has microscopic grains of black sand in it. The grip that it adds is awesome and you don't need to use a lot to get a nice solid grip on places where the leather is too smooth and slick without adding weight to the glove.
