Hey friend, welcome back to another bonus episode, and as I’m sitting here in my PJs with my coffee, I want to share with you a great tip on Instagram Notes.

What are Instagram Notes?

So in the last few weeks, I have received a couple dms or messages on the new feature, Instagram notes. So if you don’t know what this is, it’s when you go to the Instagram dms or your messages, you are going to see face bubbles at the top, just like you do for Instagram stories. And these face bubbles will have a little message.

And when you click on that message, it opens a private DM with that message. And normally it’s a quick little message. I don’t remember how many characters you get, but you don’t get that many, I want to say like 60 characters. But you’re going to see a bunch of these messages. or a quick little notes from people.

A lot of them are generic. People are just saying hi or How’s your day or Happy Wednesday, which I don’t see the point of that. So I had the question of what do I do with the Instagram notes? So I produced two ideas or two hot tips for you. To utilize the note feature to get communication rolling in your dm.

Instagram Notes Tip 1

So there’s two different things that you can do. What you can do is you can ask a question related to your audiences, like main struggle or frustration, but make sure that that question. Points back to a freebie that you can offer that person to get that person on your email list. So, for example, I just created a brand new freebie.

It is 20 content ideas for social media. Hint, hint, you can snag that in the show notes. I’m going to put that in there for you. But I, I’ve done this a few times where in my IG notes I asked the question. Would you like 20 free content ideas for social media? I mean, what a great opportunity for someone to click on that and go, yes, I do.

So if they respond, yes, now I have a one-on-one DM going with that individual. So what am I going to do? I’m going to follow up in the dms with that person and say, I just created this brand new freebie. Here’s the link. I hope you enjoy it. Let me know what content ideas you’re going to start with. Like start a conversation around the question and then just let it be.

Let the conversation naturally flow after that. So that’s the first tip. Ask a question that if they say yes or give you an answer and it can point back to a freebie, and that freebie can help that person. That’s one.

Tip 2

Another tip is to take a quick poll in your IG notes so you can ask, you know, what are you struggling with more, and then this or that.

So for example, I can say, what are you struggling with more? Producing content ideas or writing the content, right? Based on their answers, I can see who responds to that. And then I can let them know, you know, thank you for answering this. This is so interesting. I am going to create content based on your answer.

The follow up

Now, the trick to this is you need to follow through. So if you take a poll and you find that maybe 70 or 80 or percent of your audience is answering one way, create content built around that and then make sure you follow up with your audience. Create a post around there, follow up with them in the dms and.

You know, a few days ago you answered my poll. Just want to let you know I created a post to answer your question. Here’s a link to the post if you’re interested. Like what an easy way to not only get to know your audience, but now you get to create content around it. And then you also get to use IG notes to point your audience in the direction of.

Freebies, like, how awesome is that? So those are my two tips on how to use IG notes. Let me know if you’re going to start doing this, and I wouldn’t use IG notes like every day. You don’t want that bubble popping up in people’s dms constantly with all these constant questions. , I would maybe utilize it once or twice a week.

I think that’s plenty just to test it out, see if your audience answers, and they might not always answer, because those IG notes are only up for 24 hours. Just like your Instagram stories. So that is the two tips. Go ahead and grab the twenty social media content ideas in the show notes.
