Be Creative with your Instagram and Twitter direct messages.
Most of the marketers out there on Twitter and Instagram are probably making use of direct messages, and nearly all use these tools to make the new follower aware of who they are, what they do and what they have on offer. Now isn´t social media all about making connections?
Put yourself in the place of your new follower receiving hundreds of message like “click the link in the bio/Thanks for following message,me for an opportunity/I can show you how to make money” or anything similar. How would you feel?
