What would you do if Instagram disappeared tomorrow, boo?
You’d probably miss the #dogsofinstagram posts *I know I would*, but how would your business fare if social media ceased to exist?
>>I don’t foresee Instagram going away anytime soon, but implementing ways to market your business other than on social media will set you up for success.<<
*Wait a minute…the co-founder of Social Curator is talking about NOT using social media for business?!*
YES! Well, sort of…let me explain.
A study done by John Valenty found that:
>>1 email list subscriber = between $0.25-$1.00 per MONTH in income generation<<
That may not sound like a lot, but imagine having an email list of 500 people. Over the course of the year, that’s a potential income of $1,500 to $6,000! *#mathnerd*
So what can you do to build an email list on Instagram?
Create a freebie!
Just as it sounds, a freebie is a resource that you give away for free, in exchange for someone’s email address. Freebies provide value for your ideal client that also positions you as an authority in your industry.
A freebie could be anything from a video series, to an ebook, to a checklist. The options are endless!
Once you’ve created your freebie, you can implement it on Instagram!
>>Social media (specifically an Instagram bio) is a great vessel to bring people to your email list.<<
I believe every Instagram bio should have a freebie so followers have a way to connect with you on Instagram AND via email!
There’s no doubt about it: social media is changing. But email is here to stay!
By building and growing an email list, you can ensure that your subscribers will continue receiving content from you no matter what.
When it comes to determining what freebie you should create, consider the following:
- What are you trying to sell?
- What are you good at teaching?
- What types of resources are your ideal clients looking for?
