America Deserved to See the Ghislaine Maxwell Trial Televised

"Of course we got the Ghislaine Maxwell's situation, and this is perhaps the most bullshit ever. This could be the trial of the century second only to O. J. Simpson. Naturally, the Jeffrey Epstein trial would have been all that and a bag of nuts, but we didn't get that because, well, either he was killed or he killed himself, but he's gone. So then you get his second in command, his gal Friday, his right hand man, Ghislaine Maxwell, I mean, I make jokes about this, but these are two people who are involved in sex trafficking, pedophilia. You know, we can't, we can't act like, oh, well, they just like to get laid and this is an awful thing these two are involved in. I can't believe we, as Americans, are not able to see this trial. I can't believe there's nobody streaming this trial. Hulu? Amazon, Netflix? Nope, Disney+, perhaps? After all, it is about kids. Can anybody? I know they can't. I'm just saying, I know the judge says, no, we're not getting any no cameras in the courtroom. So all you're going to get are people who come out of the court at night and talk to quote unquote journalists who are folks standing in the street with a microphone or an iPhone and go live. You've got to search these people out. The one correspondent, the one journalist you need to hear from regularly throughout this trial would be Vicki ward. She's somebody that has written extensively about Ghislaine Maxwell. She knows everything about her. I don't know if she's in the courtroom, I would assume she is, but we're not gonna get to see anything. And it's a shame, I think yesterday are two days ago, the first day of the trial, some people spilled out of the courtroom and talked freedom fires is that there's an Instagram page, freedom, fires, they've got this woman on the street, really interesting black woman named Joe. She's good, she likes to get information out about what she's hearing. I don't think she'll be back in there after she kind of spilled her guts as to what this looks like. So they're probably gonna deny her access, which is really a shame. We were supposed to know about this. This can't be held in a dark room with no light is shined upon it. It ain't right, man.

Melinda Gates, Amal Clooney and Michelle Obama Have Joined Forces

"Also a writer, they talked to none of you are going to remember this, but you should. You should look her up. Selma diamond. You know, back in the day, there were ten sitcoms. And each sitcom had ten writers on the show. That's a hundred writers. Only one was female, and that was Selma diamond. Could you imagine the story she had to tell? She became a prolific comedy writer, worked on a lot of shows and these shows normally only had men, tough fall, broad, New York City, Jewish chip, she didn't give a fuck. I just wish the women today could sit down and watch a couple of hours of Selma diamond talking about what it took to make it in the world. But nowadays you can watch Amal Clooney and Melinda Gates and Michelle Obama talking about their problems. I put up an I put up an Instagram with these three rules, their picture saying, please remind me not to watch this. They've all announced a collaboration between their foundations to advance gender equality and get this to end child marriage, I didn't even know we had a huge problem with child marriage. Is that a new thing? Is this the next thing? Is that going to be a new ribbon? What's that gonna be colored? Magenta? Child marriage, what is this all about? You can introduce all these new things to me. I know these three women don't care about the price of gasoline, how much groceries cost and living paycheck to paycheck has never ever happened in their lives. So they got bigger issues to tackle. I mean, Melinda was married to Bill Gates, one of the wealthiest men ever in the world. Also a man who knew of Jeffrey Epstein's predilection for underage girls and still made him a best friend. Also a man who has his hand in vaccinations and is treated like some kind of king when he goes to the G four summit or other smarty art functions. Why is Bill Gates treated like he's an elected official? It's a fucking computer nerd. With money. So listen, ladies, pay attention to what these women have to say. Especially Melinda Gates. Here's what she said. About, what is the issue? Of our lifetime. She said, my mom always told me, set your agenda or someone else will. A bullshit, your mother didn't use that expression. No one talked about agendas in the fucking 50s and 60s. It's a lie. She never said that. Set your agenda. That wasn't an expression. It just wasn't. It's like saying nowadays, oh, you gotta go to the link and cut and paste the link and we understand that today. one would have understood that in the 60s. No one heard set your own agenda. She's full of shit. And she said, and the agenda of our lifetime is making sure women can take their full power in society. Women have these unpaid burdens. Take our children, of our elderly parents, but what I want to say to women is you need to take care of yourselves first. Once you do that, then you can fully take care of others. But if we name the unpaid labor that we do, society can help us. And if good policies are put in place, it makes our jobs easier. Everybody has agency. Hate that expression. Everybody has agency, but being able to use our full agency to be fully in our female power isn't always possible. But if you start and empower someone else and they're going to empower everybody around them and you'll see what happens. I don't know where to start. I don't know where to start. I love our female power. Imagine if I began a speech by talking about our male power, I'd be booed off the stage and pelted with old bread and eggs. Such a double standard of bullshit and then what she's saying is something I haven't ever seen with the women who raised me, maybe you did, did you? I don't think you did. I didn't, did you? My sister rosalie takes care of all of us or two sons, her husband, her fucking brother who's on his ass and not knowing what the fuck's what two grandkids or 6 dogs and anybody else who wants help or attention. I've never heard her say, um, I can't do anything until I take care of myself first. But rather, the companies coming over in 15 minutes, what can I do? Didn't you hear me? I'm taking care of myself. I'll be down when I'm down. Don't imagine my mother when I was ten years old or so. Mom, you didn't pack a cold lunch. And I got no money for a hot lunch. What do I do? My father takes me, she's like, your mother is taking care of a

When Will Ryan Gosling Marry Eva Mendes?

"These two are very famous. Famously private, they've never revealed whether they're married or not. I don't get this kind of horse shit. What's the big deal? But the other day, Ava Mendes, who's now 48, went to Instagram, and I've been on Instagram. All she does is post pictures of clothes she wore for a certain event. She doesn't answer anybody's not that I wrote her. There's no way the writer back. She just posts pictures of clothes she wears. It's really like, are you in prison? What's going on? So she showed off a tattoo that might offer a clue about their relationship. It's in her inner wrist and it spells out de Gosling. DE Gosling. So in the Hispanic culture, married women often add their husbands last name to their own using deep, DE, which means of, you know, so Mendez might go by Eva Mendes de Gosling after marrying him. Who knows? We don't know. It's not the first time she's flashed this particular tattoo. She did it two years ago. Dylan September again. But it's very prominent in his most recent post. These two have been together since 2011. They met on the movie the place beyond the pines, good movie, really good movie.

I mean, these people, these young people do not belong to the Islamic Republic of Iran. They belong, they are connected to all of us. They belong to the culture in the west to what we're doing to Instagram to Facebook. They don't want to live this other alternative life. So it's not reformable anymore. They want to struggle.

"Please, oh please. Raise a generation of effective efficient children. should not be wasting time on television. I mean, I'm talking about the older kids. Maybe not talk about the babies. You know, you need them to develop their brain with images and words and stuff like that. But your older kids quit letting them play them video games all day. Your kids shouldn't be on TikTok, TikTok and Instagram, or SnapChat. Can let me tell you something parents, they doing freaky stuff on that SnapChat. They talking dirty, and they think it disappears. It don't disappear. Every SnapChat that snapped is saved, and actually anything on your phone is saved if police want to do it forensic investigation into your phone. Nothing gets deleted. It just gets overrated on the script. And they could go back and look at the script that was overwritten. And they could do a forensic investigation into your phone to get all the evidence. So none of that stuff disappears you need to tell your kids that. You know, I caught my son on one of these websites. Why? Because, you know, daddy's daddy will make sure he ain't on there. I can't argue about the other person. Call them on the SnapChat, count them on the twit on TikTok. And I went through because you ain't got no prophecy in my house. It's a dictatorship.

"Later up in a hospital and they found out what was wrong with her because one day she left a supermarket driving like she always did and she crashed into a pole and they took it to the hospital. She blacked out in the car and they found out that she was sick with cancer. And they discovered, you know, breast cancer, then it spread to her brain, which is kind of common and cancerous a sneaky motherfucker we all know that. It's everywhere in my family. I'm sure it's everywhere in your family, too. My parents, my sister, my aunts, my brother in law, but for some reason, I don't think that's going to be what takes me. I don't know. I always foresaw some kind of stroke or heart attack as the thing that takes me. I'm just putting this out there, you know, in the public arena. can go, oh no, AJ said, you're going to die of a stroke or a heart attack. That's why I took myself to the hospital last week. But now with the COVID vaccinations and the boosters, who the hell knows? What's going to take any of us? Who knows? I mean, all we read about is people dying young and playing football even home and he died a cheerleader was spinning dead. I mean, it's constant. It's constant. Somebody wrote on deadline about Leslie Jordan the world is a much darker place today without the love and light of Leslie Jordan. Not only was he a mega talent and a joy to work with, but he provided an emotional sanctuary to the nation and one of the most difficult times. Apparently, and I didn't look at these things until yesterday. He was doing things on Instagram. He was doing these Instagram lives that helped people during the pandemic. I don't know. I didn't really watch it. I'll talk more about it tomorrow, I guess, but yeah, people are all torn apart because Leslie Jordan is dead. Again, I don't want to make I'm not trying to make it less than it is. It's a horrible thing that a man died. But this part of me that thinks, oh Christ, forgive me for saying this. This part of me that thinks if he was straight, the outpouring of emotion wouldn't be the same. Because all I'm reading are people who are obviously in tune with, you know, loving the fact that a gay man died and he was so emotional and so this and that, but I think if Leslie Jordan merged straight man who was a character actor like he was, I don't think the outpouring of a Mueller would be nearly the same. But because he was clear, we all got act like it was the worst fucking thing in the world yesterday. I just can't get there. I can't get there. I'm sorry. I can't get there. Anyhow, that's it.

So suddenly, out of nowhere, I'm watching scorchy, and they're sooning out sitting in my living room. At the old drunk and sexy and silly, you know, how it goes. And I'm like, well, what do you want to do? Do you want to look at some baby pictures of me? I was thinking of anything I could do. Hey, look, look at these. I was bringing out baby pictures. I was bringing out, I mean, guys, I did all I could to keep I'm sorry. I did all I could to keep her interested. And we're on the couch together. I'm finally alone with Sue and eno. It's now 1980. We're no longer freshmen. We're seniors, and everybody wants Sue. And she's in my house on my couch, and she's letting me hold her against my chest and kiss her head and kiss her ear, whatever the fuck. But I didn't go further than that. Apparently, her contact lenses were bothering her, so he took them out. We put them in some kind of liquid that she had and then that didn't work. It all ended badly. But the point is, she was right there, so when I think about these kids who were talking about cheating on exams and wearing headpieces, I'm like, you idiots don't even know what you're missing, man. You're missing your old Sue Nino. What are you doing? Put the fucking hats away. Go flirt with someone. I mean, am I the only one that has memories of that kind of stuff of people just, you know, blowing your mind and having. To be with them and then actually one day they're there with you? Oh my God, I'm not going to spoil it, but we saw a picture a few weeks ago of Sue and some girl who went to high school with and, you know, they don't look the way they used to look in 1979, but neither do I, so no harm no foul, speaking of which, I'm sorry, but listen, guys, as much as I love Johnny Depp. I'm honest enough to say the music he plays with Jeff Beck is God awful. And I've been gone up against a lot of people online who have taken to call in Johnny God dad and saying, oh, he looks so beautiful. No, Johnny Depp, Johnny dep now looks like a Johnny Depp in personator. He looks awful. I don't know. You know, I don't look like I used to look when I was a kid either. So I'm allowed to be critical here. But the drinking and the drugs and the bullshit has caught up with Johnny Depp. And it shows it's like that old adage. You die what the face you deserve. And Johnny has his now. Okay, that's it. He may have been a beautiful soul. He may still be a beautiful solid spirit. I don't doubt he is. But Scott with how beautiful or handsome he is now. He doesn't. He's not. So so many pictures and imposing with relatives and Kentucky or some shit. And while that was a really cool gesture, Johnny Depp doesn't look good anymore. None of us do. You know, you can still love him. As, you know, we've allowed Pacino or old Jack Nicholson or old Warren Beatty, but stop acting like Johnny Depp still belongs on the cover of Tiger beat. And stop what this new term, God dad. What is that? You Johnny Depp fans are starting to sound like Britney Spears nuts.

A Concerning Social Disconnect From Reality for Young People

"Of the things that I have seen happen in the previous years coming along is this idea and really a concerning idea that you have a more and more what I'll call a disconnect from reality when it comes to social interaction. And one of the worst things of social interaction that I have seen is the disconnect from people and young people in particular not being able to, you know, how they can result in feelings, how they can, you know, put stuff together, you know, how they can do, just normal conversations, things that we grew up learning when you were in school. And the latest app and there's apps all over the place. I mean, we've had Facebook craze, we had the Twitter phase yet, SnapChat, you've had Instagram, you had everything. Which again, it was amazing. You have disconnect from so called friends, but you don't know them. You don't have, you know, you don't have personal interaction. The latest app one called gas is out there. And the reason I'm bringing this up is not, I mean, if people want to use this fine, I get it. But this gas app is really popular now among high schools and you can actually put in your high school. And it's only it's built to be a positive uplifting thing. So like who is the smartest person you know? And who's the prettiest person, you know, the best looking? Anyway, it starts to be a superlative. So to build people up, 'cause we've seen, look, Instagram, Facebook, all these others are very toxic environments for teenagers. We get that. But it has been Twitter, has been forever because it gives the keyboard courage folks out there. The ones who would rather sit in front of the keyboard and type up things to send to people, sometimes anonymously to make themselves feel better is the things that are actually the destroying the interaction and frankly in turn destroying the institutions that we know from politics to religion to communities because people don't know how to actually deal with conflict.

"And then the poll could be like, oh my God, I need this or I don't like Instagram. Like whatever, it's just about really filtering out the people who are like, I want to hear more about this. I need this. Okay, so go back to where you were before then. So you were saying that like, okay, once you do this poll, this is part of where the secret sauce comes in. So go ahead and go down that road. So we want to look at who voted, I want more information. And then we have two options. So either we can add all of these people who voted yes as a close friend. So in order to do that, you have to be following them. And you just have to go to their profile, click on that following button, and then it comes up as close friends, or if you're promoting multiple office, and you want to know who actually was interested in which offer, you can create collections. So if you go to someone's post underneath on the bottom right, you see this little bookmark symbol. If you press on that and you keep it pressed, it brings up this pop up that says add to collection or create a new collection. So I might create something that says retreat 2022. And then whenever I'm promoting or I'm talking about my retreat, I'm saving people to that collection. When I'm talking about my Instagram post, I'm saving people to the Instagram collection. So just to be clear, this is fascinating. You're looking at all the people and it shows you everyone who clicked on it, right? You're going to their profile in the case of a collection and you're finding their last post. Any posts. Any post and you're adding it to a collection, which is kind of your way of creating a little database. Exactly. All the people that answered this.

"For me it felt really male the way they were showing up and it didn't really align for me. So I was kind of trying out different ways of how I could use these more salesy strategies but make them kind of my own and it took a while. But eventually I found out what worked for me. Awesome and we're going to get into that for sure here throughout the course of this interview. There are some people listening right now who, when they think of Instagram, they don't think of it as selling, right? They can relate to the story. You told about they developed this really big following and they've got an engaged community but for whatever reason, they're not actually buying or they're not using it. They're using it for more branding than they are for direct marketing. Why should businesses consider using Instagram for actual the actual sales process? Like, what do you want to say to those people? Yeah, and you know, I think Instagram is just such an amazing platform in the form that we have all these features like posts and captions and reels where we can share value and where we can build our expert status and then we have stories where we can let people in on the day to today life and kind of build this trust. And then we also have DMs and voice notes and even video calls so you can have these authentic connections with your ideal client. So we're creating all these content where nurturing our audience. So we have people in our audience who are ready to buy from us. So why wouldn't we start making office to them or invitations? And I think the problem is that people go about selling on Instagram the wrong way.

"But if you are a business, what you need to do is build relationships and 6, 700 people, that's a lot of people in a room that is a huge amount of people. If you're a musician, just starting out, you would dream and playing to an audience of that size. And that is a very, very small account in these days, particularly when you look at TikTok numbers, you know, people with millions and millions of followers on TikTok without really kind of sweating. They just having fun. That's what they're doing. They're having fun in their communicating with people, and it's blowing up. You know, when we dial it all the way back, I think the people that find this strategy useful. The strategy of respecting the individual and having deeper conversations, it's small businesses. It's service providers. It's people that say it might be a personal trainer. It would be a great example of somebody who can build up. Because you've only got so much time, they can build up a small following and really then it becomes the quality of yourself, the quality of your ideas, and the kind of how authentic you really are as a person. If you can nail those things and that's just really about being yourself, you know, because there's only one of you. If you can be yourself, then you can connect with those people. And these small businesses, I say like a personal trainer, Instagram, all this social media is a perfect place to do that to build a business like that. For sure, some people listening right now that have slightly bigger audience, but they want to do this. And they're saying to themselves, I can't possibly do this because it would be a full-time job for me because there's a lot of comments I get. What do you want to say to those people? I would imagine they could be super careful about who they choose to engage with. And I could also imagine that they could do for a few what they wish they could do for many, right? Do you have any thoughts on how to be strategic when you do have a lot of people that comment on your stuff, but you don't have time to respond to all of them. Any insights on that? Yeah, I think a perfect tool to use there is the Instagram Q&A or those similar to the Q&A. A bigger following means that you're going to get a lot of responses to something. So if you can sit down for half an hour, put out a question and say, ask me anything and I'll answer, you know, then you are not so much just commenting back to people with DMs, you are kind of answering lots and lots of people's questions. But also showing that there is a community around what you're doing. There's a I can't remember the Instagram account, but my partner is wild for it. It is a confessions account and what the people do is they make a confession and the person then posts it back onto their stories and says something funny about it. It's all anonymous. But that is the luxury that this big accounts have because they have lots and lots of people so they can flip the kind of direct DMs on its head and just start doing Q&A's and build a kind of a show around it. I mean, this person does it once a week and my partner's glued to her phone. She's just giggling at all of these answers to these people's confessions on this Instagram account. It's hilarious. There are some people listening right now that do not have very big followings at all. And they maybe need to figure out how to find the right people to follow. Do you have any thoughts on how to go out maybe and find people to follow you on the socials? Yeah, I think this is very subjective, but I think a great place.

"Like I say, I've grown up in music. I've grown up in a small community talking to small communities is very natural to me, but then also I work professionally in marketing. I've done that for my whole life, so I do have that mechanical side as well. That kind of side that has a yearning to just measure everything that's happening. So I think that stopping thinking of Instagram as a content library. This is how I look at it. It's a communication platform. Every single piece of content that you put out on the platform becomes an opportunity to communicate in various different forms, maybe you're inviting people to send you a DM or maybe you're inviting people to comment or maybe you're simply making a statement in the content itself that you want to resonate with your audience, or it could be that as a lot of creators. It's a business. Maybe you want them to go off of the site and check out a course or you want them to check out your products. If you're not measuring those things, then how do you know whether it worked or not? And this is kind of, I'd say my strategy is think of every single piece of content as an opportunity to communicate, but also make sure every single piece of content has a purpose. So for example, if I'm posting a piece of content and the purpose of that content is to bring awareness around a product, I need to think to myself, where am I sending them? Am I tracking that myself? Not am I relying on the other companies to tell me whether they're happy, but I'm tracking that myself. So for example, if I'm putting the link in bio, am I using a system like Bitly or something like that where I can actually see those numbers. And this way, you can kind of see how you're doing on both fronts. So if my content was to invite comments and I didn't get any comments, I know that I need to do better. I need to find a way to resonate with my audience. I don't need to get more comments by performing actions. It's about resonating with your audience. And also, did that content fulfill its purpose from a measurable point of view like did I get clicks on here or did I increase numbers in different areas? So I think it's the way that I look at social media is kind of community first platform first and then thinking about numbers and how you can measure it and whether you're actually hitting those goals. This is really good stuff. I want to dig in on some of this on the community first side of it. I like what you said, which is that every piece of content is an opportunity to communicate. I think that's like a tweetable quote right there. So what I would love to know is some of the examples of the kinds of content that we can create that might encourage communication because there's obviously ways to do it in a way that's spurs communication. You already mentioned earlier that you're tracking some of these kind of things and watching for what doesn't and what does create some sort of communication thread, if you will. So what are the types of content that you create if you will that encourages your followers to communicate with you? I think something that everybody kind of has heard of at this point is asking questions, asking questions to people that are important in your community, but asking them in the right places. A good example is my business as a cabin photographer. I can put out a piece of content and it's for one of two audiences and they're very, very different.

"There's maybe a little bit more space in the venue, but there's a band about to play, but instead of starting the singer of the band actually gets off the stage, he goes next door and tries to get a few more people to come in. And then, you know, he gets a few more people and they enter the venue. He gets back on the stage, and then he looks around and he's like, no, there's not still not quite enough here. I don't think. So he goes out again. And you can see the point I'm trying to make. He's actually just forgotten about the people that were there that have signed up that are there to enjoy this band. And I have another analogy. How about you're starting a live stream and you're waiting 5 minutes for more people to show up while everyone who's there is bored out of their mind, right? Or you're about to present, right? And there's not enough people in the room, so you just kind of wait at the expense of everyone else, right? This analogy is so good. Keep going. So how does that work and how with Instagram? Well, yeah, I mean, I think what it is is that people are, you know, it's great you can absolutely chase new followers. And the kind of point I made in that video was that if that band had just started playing and made sure everyone who was already there had a good time when everyone left the restaurants next door. They walked by and they'd look in through the door and they'd say, hey, that looks amazing. Let's get in there. Let's go and enjoy that. And I think that's almost a perfect analogy for the way that people can treat their Instagram accounts. It's a bit more nuanced, I think, than that example. I think an analogy is an extreme version of the nuanced behavior that goes on on Instagram, but I think that the biggest mistake that I see people make is just chasing more and more and more rather than just putting all of that effort into the people that you do see. And your live stream examples are really good one, you know, what an amazing thing.

"We change nothing. We see this even if you just look at chronological feed. If you look at what people share on Instagram, that shifting more and more to videos over time. If you look at what people like and consume and view on Instagram, that's also shifting more and more to video over time. Even when we stop changing anything. So we're going to have to lean into that shift. While continuing to support photos. And that's the argument that he's taking is basically like, I know what you want, actually, and the data implies that you want more video, which is just hard to believe. I hate video. I mean, I love video when it's on TikTok, but that's because the TikTok algorithm has called into my brain and knows too much and is serving exactly what I want. The meta world has never been good at serving video. I don't think. Yeah, and I think a big part of the backlash is that this move, the shift towards reels content is going to coincide with a redesign of the feed in the app that's going to give you a full screen feed. So if you've ever tapped on a reel and then you just swipe up to go to the next one and up to go to the next one and up to go to the next one and it takes over your whole screen. That is what Instagram is going to look like for everything in the near future, right? Yeah, I think so. That's the plan anyways. I know some people are getting served that already as sort of test subjects. I haven't actually gotten it yet though. Have you? No, I think they probably have a special list of press people. They're just like, do not send the beta tests to them. Absolutely. Absolutely. I don't know if that's true. Absolutely. And in the video also notes that it's a bad experience right now, and that they're going to tweak it in the future, which I think is good, like I appreciate the honesty. You know, that this is bad. We have to get it right. So we're just doing it for a small percentage of people now. The other thing that he said in the video, which I thought was interesting, is that a lot of photo sharing has moved into stories. Which I agree with, and I actually really like stories. I will sometimes just tap on stories and prop my phone up against my coffee and just watch stories while I eat my cereal in the morning. That's an adorable visual. And yeah, I mean, that's the thing. I like, I like stories a lot too. I think they're really fun. They sort of Instagram for a while is moving into this zone where you felt like all the stuff that you posted to the grid had to be very curated and stories were sort of a way around that a way that make it so fun and ephemeral. And again, that is just straight up a SnapChat clone. Like they get zero points for originality with stories, but it's good and it rules and we all like it. So I do think I do think that it's necessarily the

"The other algorithms on the other platforms aren't really a 100% built for that the same way Instagram is. And I think that it's important to see that strength and know that it's still a really great vehicle to get sales. Okay, so everyone presumably who's listening has a desire to make more sales or generate more leads with the work that they're doing on Instagram. And you see a lot of things. You have a lot of people that belong to your academy. You have lots of students and you probably are noticing mistakes that marketers seem to make over and over and over again. What are some of the big mistakes that you see happening today as we're recording this in 2022? There's three mistakes that I can think of the first one is focusing only on one feature. And so we already established Instagram is great. There's so many features out there, but one thing that I'm noticing a lot of my own customers, a lot of marketers in general, is they're really going all in on Instagram reels, which is fantastic. Not saying that Instagram reels is bad at all. I think that it's excellent and it's a great way to get exposure and it's a really cool feature that Instagram has introduced to us. However, we need to remember that there are other features that you can leverage as well that help you not just attract someone but nurturing convert them. So kind of like what I was saying earlier, there's live streams. There's stories. There's carousel posts. There's actual DMs FaceTime. You can actually do all those features in one. And if you're only putting all your eggs in one basket for a reels, you're really just creating a one dimensional social media strategy and you're not necessarily thinking about the full picture. For example, yes, right now with Instagram reels, some may argue that they get more reach on that using that feature, which is excellent. But if you are someone like me who's more of an educator, let's say, there's really only so much I can say in a 15 second clip, I might want to actually leverage a carousel.

I would imagine you must have had either you were a student or you had another job, and this is just the side hustle, right? There must have been some moment where you decided you were going to make a business out of this, right? Yeah, so I keep probably from when I actually started taking it seriously. When I found out there was a business behind it, because up until then I didn't really think much of it. And I feel like most people in 2014 didn't really think much of the social media as a business. So probably from when I found out he was running it as a business, like I knew it was possible. And so that was always the goal I guess was to turn it into a business. It took me like at the time I would have been 14 nearly 15, just starting this account. And so, yeah, like I was still in high school and had plenty more years in high school. Probably from that point on that I realized it was possible. And then win for it. It took probably 6 to 12 months before it started, making any income and wasn't until lots about 18, about four years later that it was a full-time income. So tell me about the clever preneur company that you started. When did you start that? What exactly are you doing? Who you working with? Tell us a little bit about that.

"To a few thousand yet. And I was sitting and it got to the point where, again, I had maybe the most followers I ever had on one of those accounts was probably around 5000. But every time I posted a product, it would sell. That's awesome. Yeah. We spent some good time talking about why advocates are so important. And I think intuitively everybody understands we all want this. So what's the strategy? What's your strategy specifically for creating these advocates or superfans on Instagram? Let's start with a high level overview of your strategy and then we'll dig into the tenants of it. Yeah, amazing. Okay, so my strategy is called the triple C funnel, right? So if you think about your traditional consumer purchase funnel, which a lot of people listening will be nodding along, but for anyone who doesn't know what I'm talking about, it's basically that funnel, you've got a picture in actual funnel in your mind. The funnel which basically shows the process of someone who is a brand new person to your brand moving through it all the way to the bottom of the funnel where they actually become a customer of your brand and they actually purchase from you. So it's moving them through awareness, frequent consideration and all of that. So my method is essentially my Instagram marketing twist on it, which I am calling the triple C funnel. And there's three core elements to it. So at the top, it's about capturing the attention of your ideal audience. The middle is about moving those people who you've just captured the attention of and actually conversing with them, nurturing that relationship, bringing them into you and your brand and your business. And then the bottom is the convert section. So this can mean different things to different people. But for the sake of this conversation, this is all about converting those people from just passers by to actually advocates of your channel. So they actually convert them to the point where they now not only follow you, but they love your content and they want to shout about it, all of their friends and family. Okay, so it's called the triple C, CCC, if you will, capture. And then converse and then convert. Now, let me ask you this question before we dig into each of these three things. Do you feel like this could work for any size, Instagram account? Yes, I do. And that's such a good question. And the reason why this can work for any size Instagram account is because using this funnel and almost picturing your content or grouping your content based on these three stages of the funnel will allow you to ensure that you are consistently capturing the attention of new people conversing with them and converting them, but it's moving on a bit of a rolling basis. So that will work regardless of how big or how small your channel is. And an example of this because I've taught this to quite a few of my different clients now is when I look at some of my clients tunnels when they first come to me, I can see, for example, they might come to me and say, do you know what I'm really struggling to get anyone to buy from me? And I will look at their content and I will see that almost all of their content is focused on the bottom end of that funnel. So all of their content is focused on conversion, right? So because they ignoring the capture section and the converse section, they're actually not bringing new people into their audience. They're not nurturing or conversing with them and therefore improving that relationship, which means there's no one there at the bottom of that funnel to actually convert into customers. So yeah, so the idea is that when you understand what all of your content is doing and how it's hitting those different stages of the funnel, you'll really get to a place where you'll have your Instagram consistently producing content which will move people through that funnel already. So it's like you don't even really need to think about it. You are consistently capturing the attention of your audience conversing with them and then converting them. So let's start with the top of the funnel, which is the capture first see if you will. What do we need to do when we're working on this first part? Yeah. So there's a few different elements. The first one I feel like everyone is going to absolutely hate me for saying. But it is the algorithm, the dreaded Instagram algorithm. This is important, unfortunately. The Instagram algorithm is important to understand when it comes to you trying to capture the attention of your ideal audience. And that is because the algorithm decides who will see your content where they're going to see your content and when they're going to see it, right? And there might be some people listening to this and really like avid Instagram users who might be thinking, well, hold on. There are some new feed options coming into play and maybe the algorithm won't be as important anymore. So if anyone who doesn't know what those new feed options are, Instagram are slowly rolling out the ability for you to change your home feed so that it's in chronological order. So it's basically going to mimic what it used to look like pre 2016. And they're also going to give you the opportunity to filter your home feed so that you can only see content from accounts that you have favorited. So accounts that you have specifically marked as one as your favorites, which is really exciting. These are brand new changes. So don't worry if you don't have them yet, they're only just being rolled out. But the thing to know is that even though these changes will come into play this year, you will not be able to save any of these view options as your default. So when you go on to Instagram, the content that you'll see will always be the content that will be organized by the algorithm. So the algorithm is still your key thing that you need to learn how to leverage in order to really get in front of more eyeballs and new people. Okay. So what I'm hearing you say is that these new changes are going to allow the fans, the consumers of Instagram, the people everyday people like us to decide to make a choice and then the Instagram algorithm, how do we prepare for something like this? I guess is the question. Yeah, really, really good question. So first of all, I have a couple of tips that you can actually take away and do today what's going to help you leverage the algorithm now and also when this change comes into play. So I'll share those tips with you now and then we can also just talk about how to prepare for it because it's such a major change. They've not made a change like this to their platform in a long time. So yeah, it's going to be a big one. But in terms of the tips, so one thing that you can do today, what's going to help you actually leverage Instagram's algorithm and get in front of more people is to focus on the popularity of your posts. So one of the signals that Instagram's algorithms look for and notice I said algorithms plural because it's actually multiple. Algorithms, but that's conversation for another day. But one of the signals that Instagram's algorithms look for is the popularity of your posts. If it thinks that your post is doing well, and it's being well received by your audience, it will push your post out to more people and that's what's gonna help you get in front of new eyeballs on the explore page and different features like that. So one way that you can help popularity of your posts, it's the most simple tactic that people always forget about it is to simply ask your audience to engage with your content. My mom always told me, if you don't ask, you do not get, you literally just need to ask your audience to engage with your posts. So replace that call to action that I'm assuming and hoping you normally have in your captions, replace that for one watcher says, share this post with someone else who would find this useful or tag someone who you think would love this or comment below your thoughts on what I've just said. Literally asks people to engage with your content and to spread the word and you'll notice that more people will actually do so. And that's going to help drive up the popularity of your post. Nice. When we're in the capture stage and we're trying to capture attention of our ideal audience, let's talk a little bit about content. What kinds of content should we be creating here? Because you kind of alluded earlier that most people are just focused on the convert content and they're not focused on the right kinds of content. So what kinds of content we.

"But there's something fundamentally different about like a three second video and a 5 second video in a 15 second video and a one minute video and a one hour video like fundamentally different. Fundamentally different. I mean, I think one of the reasons SnapChat exists is because Instagram was so focused on posting great, beautiful manicured versions of yourself throughout time. And there was this enormous demand of like, hey, I really like this behavior. I love using Instagram, but man, I just wish I could share something going on in my day. Do I really have to put it on my profile? Do I really have to make it last forever? Do I really, and that opened up a door it created a market, right? And then what's fascinating is Instagram had an explore page for the longest time. It was image driven, right? But there's absolutely a behavior where you open up Instagram and you sit on the explore page all day. That is effectively TikTok, but obviously focused on videos. And it's not like you could just put the explore page in TikTok form and it works. It had to be video. It had to have music. These are the hard parts about product development that are very hard to predict, but they're all versions of the same thing with varying if you line them up in a bunch of dimensions. They're just like kind of on their different values of the same dimensions, which is like, I guess, easy to say in retrospect. But if I were an entrepreneur going after that area, I'd ask myself, where's the opening? What needs to exist because TikTok exists now? So I wonder how much things that don't yet exist and can exist is in the space of algorithms. In the space of recommender systems. So in the space of how the fetus generated.

So the moral of the story is you can ask all you want, but you just have to look at the data. And data doesn't lie. I mean, there's metrics. There's data can obscure the key insight if you're not careful. So time spent in the app that's one. There's so many metrics you can put at this, and they will give you totally different insights. Especially when you're trying to create something that doesn't obviously exist yet. So you know, measuring maybe why you left the app or measuring special moments of happiness that will make sure you return to the app, or moments of happiness that a long-lasting versus like dopamine short term. All of those things. But I think I suppose in the beginning, you can just get away with just asking the question. Which features are used a lot? Let's do more of that. And how hard was the decision and I mean, maybe you can tell me what Instagram looked in the beginning, but how hard was it to make pictures the first class citizen? That's a revolutionary idea. Like, whatever point Instagram became this feed of photos. That's quite brilliant. Plus also don't know when this happened, but they're all shaped the same. It's like I have to tell you why. That's the interesting part. Why is that? So a couple of things. One is data like you're right. You can over interpret data.

"But live has truly grown my own personal brand from something that was like, I don't know when I started with eve, it was about maybe two, 3000 followers to now that I'm up to 40 K of followers on Instagram based off what I do on live and the consistency that I am. So this is, first of all, an awesome story. And a lot of people listening, we're going to talk about live Instagram Live for the rest of this discussion. But there are some people listening right now that are all in on Instagram, but they're not using Instagram Live or they're barely using Instagram Live. Why don't you give them the case as to why this is so valuable? So Instagram and live is such a game changer. People in general, right? But specifically for marketers, this is the way that you connect and put a face to the brand. We could only say so much through a post, whether it's a video or flyer, a quote, there's only so much personality so much we get to know about the brand. When you go live, they are able to put a face to the brand. And they're able to see exactly what you're selling. They're able to understand what you're selling, what you're doing. Able to ask questions that they may not feel comfortable on a comment because they feel like you may not respond to them. Now they're feeling a little bit more comfortable and being able to be like, hey, so you said your event is this or the brand's event is this? What exactly is going to be part of it? And you could break it all the way down. And it brings some type of human vibe to your brand whereas some people just maybe hide behind the logo or just really concentrate on the content strategy as far as pulse. But live takes it to a whole new level and actually converts way easier than if you do the just posting here and there..

"instagram" Discussed on What A Day

"Is just from part one of the series okay so that is quite a tease for everything else. Hit us with the newest revelations. So part two focuses on instagram which facebook owns for the past three years. The company has been conducting studies into how instagram affects. Its millions of young users. According to the those studies say the app is harmful for a sizeable chunk of them especially teen girls a notable quote from the internal documents that stood out to me. We make body image issues worse for one in three teen girls. And here's a stat from a study of us and uk teens conducted by facebook more than forty percent of instagram users. Who reported feeling quote unquote unattractive said the feeling began on the ab and about a quarter of the teens who reported feeling quote unquote. Not good enough said. The feeling also started on the app. Yeah i mean. That is a significant amount of stats. We have for this all pointing in the wrong direction. Geez that's awful the thing to keep in mind though and the reason why this is all interesting because kubrick has publicly downplayed the health effects of social media and especially facebook and instagram. But his only internal research says that some of the issues we all know to be true with social media are specific to instagram. Like an explorer page for example who's algorithm only shows me absurdly fit half naked men while stuffing my face full of cold stone creamery and jumping to put my jeans as a result of all this reporting senators richard blumenthal and marsha blackburn of the commerce committee announced yesterday an investigation into facebook's awareness of the harm that instagram can cause. Yeah they are trying to break the guinness book of world records for how many investigations they're facing at once. Okay then there is actually a part three of the journals report. What did that piece focus on that. Facebook did try at one point to make itself a healthier platform for users but instead it became an angrier place internal company documents. Show that a major shift. In facebook's news feed algorithm in twenty. Eighteen basically backfired. The goal was to boost what they call meaningful social interactions between friends and family but it ended up being a system that rewarded outrage sensationalism which publishers and political parties worldwide exploited the facebook employees. Alerting your managers to these concerns early on in the process of change was only made in the spring of twenty twenty and only specifically regarding civic and health content when employees made an appeal to zuckerberg to extend such changes. He said he didn't want to pursue it if it reduced user engagement because obviously that's how they keep the lights on over there now. I'm sure there.

"Right. How are we in here. Let's just passionate. Our almost are eight. Okay let me breeze through instagram stories. This is my favorite I really loved it. I think we honeypot do a good job with our stories as well so you can post behind. You can post behind the scenes. We post tips to tourelles. We ask the audience questions. Allow them to ask you questions as well You can post polls this or that slides. So this is my favorite way to really engage with your audience Yeah i just think if you have fun with your stories that's when that's cuss or the public is really enjoying stories than most when when are kinda fun and interactive. You want to eat. You know you wanna keep You want to keep your content styles like very them for each one of these stories or whether it's boasts guides reels right there. Igt and all those as well that you can see on c. On our feet here. Yeah and put them into the instagram story. Highlights as well because by default they delete after twenty four hours. So it's helpful information. Just plug it in the talk. Your profile on users can go back whenever they want. I like i like stories to highlight user-generated content so if you have a specialized hashtag they're using and users tag you in photos you can share it that Tagged photo into your stories and kind of gives your users that fifteen minutes of fame type of thing that regularly sure photo you know and it's just a great way to kind of build up excitement for your brand to And i think it it goes without saying from a strategic perspective and again it's it's really kind of unfortunate to see but we do see it a lot Is businesses are using instagram as a broadcast medium and it is not a broadcast medium is a community right so all of those things about engagement and content styles. It's a two way street right And the best aaa. They actually do an awesome job. They have great community management and really positively affects their business Across the board. Okay right last but definitely probably most importantly dander anesthetic. Love the sound effects.

"That kept us really busy but it was super exciting. We're really happy with how it turned out and everything that kind of evolved from it So that's been really fun to see that and then of course you know instagram. Just you know keeps me employed because seems like every week. There's some new roll out. There's something happening in the world. That's wants to send me an email message and be like what is this But yeah obviously real. Is the big thing that rolled out this year with instagram. So i know we'll talk about that today. But that's keeping everyone on their toes and it's interesting to see you know what they took from the instagram side with. Took the tick tock side. You know when how they're trying to kind of meld the two in terms of keeping their audience on instagram. And maybe we start there. I do wanna come back and talk a little bit about the book and especially writing and concluded in finalizing a book during this granary virtual world that we're in but you're exactly right about instagram and real. Since there's so many things have have changed. What what do you see as is the biggest change in what specifically when you're talking to your guest and your audience's virtually now. What part of instagram are. They most kind of confused or complex about you in all these new changes we've seen and it's funny because i actually like for all the little things that changed. Instagram hasn't changed. And that's what i actually tried to get through to. People is the strategies that we've been talking about about how the algorithm works about. You know how to grow your account how do you hashtags how to create content. Most of those core strategies have not changed in years. The actual bulk of instagram as a platform hasn't changed stories of evolved reels. Have come out. There are these changes in nuances. But i think most people get so caught up in these changes that they think everything has changed now like the algorithms changed now..
