Create your profile:

Over deliver on Value:

Social Media expert Gary Vaynerchuck describes this process with a boxing analogy, he calls it “jab, jab, jab, right hook” meaning that out of your content 80% of it should be value based content, meaning just cool things that people will appreciate without any intention of getting a sale behind them and once you’ve established a rapport and trust with your followers you hit them with the “right hook” which is your pitch, asking for the sale. You should do more giving than you do asking with you content and if you do that you will be very successful on Instagram and on any social media platform.
