I don’t know anyone who doesn’t think it would be great to attract more Instagram followers. More email list subscribers. More sales.
More of anything! Because it makes our efforts feel worthwhile. It seems validating.
But we’re often stopped in our tracks when we begin to realize what we need to do in order to increase our numbers.
We think we have to post more, research hashtags, invest in advertising, create a lead magnet, learn to write better copy, or forget about a restful night’s sleep.
Yeah, you probably do have to do some of those things in order to attract more followers and subscribers, but you might also benefit from being open to doing things a little differently to increase those numbers.
In this episode of the Art Biz Podcast I talk with Trudy Rice about how she has grown her Instagram and email list by cross-promoting other brands.
Trudy uses a platform called Ampjar, but the underlying lesson is to find like-minded people and share each other’s art, products, and services. Trudy refers to these as “shout outs” and loves this system because of the good karma it creates.
