21st July - Post Prompt
TODAY IS ALL ABOUT BEING VULNERABLE AND SPARKING ENGAGEMENT WITH YOUR AUDIENCE WHILE RELEASING YOUR NEED FOR ENGAGEMENT
I want you to share that you are going to be showing up more frequently on Instagram Stories with content specifically for your ideal client, and that you really want to hear from them more often. Encourage them to start conversations with you and to use that “send message” bar. Just be vulnerable with them, let them know you don’t bite, but that the journey of sharing content online is so much better when there’s people participating in conversation. Don’t be afraid to describe the type of person you’re trying to connect with so that they can know immediately whether they are who you’re talking to or not.
Importantly: at some point in this story, encourage your audience to reply to this Story just saying “hello”. It is a simple, easy call-to-action.
TIPS & HINTS:
Do not judge your success based on how many people reply. Judge your success on whether you showed up and did today’s prompt, or not.
Today’s prompt is not only there to exercise vulnerability in asking for what you want, and to hopefully boost engagement. It’s also there to strengthen your ability to ask for a comment, get little to no response, and be unaffected by it.
YOU CAN DO THIS!
Here’s a template you can feel free to follow:
Hey friends, today I’ve been ____*share what you’ve been doing so far*____ but I wanted to come on here to share a moment of vulnerability with you.
I really want to start using Instagram Stories as a place to make real connections with ____*insert a description of your ideal client here*___
If that’s you, I really want this Instagram page to be a resource for you that you truly appreciate.
But the more I show up here, and the more I create content for you, the more I crave to actually hear from you!
So this is me today just giving you a little encouragement to use the “send message” bar below whenever you feel like it!
Never feel afraid to reach out to me because I do genuinely want to hear from you!
I don’t bite, and this is gonna be so much more fun for all of us if we have some conversations and get to know each other.
So … here’s my request: if you’re still watching, just say “hello” or “hey” in the message bar below!
That’s it – just say hi! I’d love to hear from you!
That’s all from me today, just wanted to let ya’ll know what’s been on my mind: I just want to be more in touch with you so like I said, never be afraid to use that message bar. In fact, use it now and say hello!
Remember this template is to give you an idea of what to post. You do not have to follow it exactly, nor do you have to follow it at all. This is simply a guide for you to use in today’s Story.
