2: How to use DMs to hack the Instagram algorithm. DM-ing your followers on Instagram & relationship selling

show notes Jun 12, 2019

You've probably had them before: DMs from people who pitch their e-book in the first sentence.

Stop it! It doesn't work.

If you want to sell on Instagram, you better not push your services in everyone's face. There are better ways to build your brand and get people interested in your product.

Once you have that relationship with your tribe, you can do your market research and create a product as an answer to what your audience wants (and needs).

DMing people is a great way to get to know your audience in a non sleezy and salesy way. 

Feel awkward messaging your ideal customer? In this podcast I'm giving you 5 reasons to connect with your audience and what to say.
