Net Positive with Blake Emal

Author: Blake Emal

Subscribed: 11Played: 243


Net Positive follows the inner thoughts and trajectory of work-in-progress, 20-something Blake Emal.

On this show, you'll get a mix of documentation and interviews. Look, I have big dreams just like the next gal or guy.

The only difference? I'm not going to pretend that I'm a millionaire with all the answers (because I'm not and I don't).

I want to document the EXPERIENCE of growing in my career and skillset, rather than acting like something I'm not.

This podcast goes out to all the solopreneurs, entrepreneurs, and wantrepreneurs that keep it 100.

No fluff, just cool stuff. Support this podcast:

Over the past 2 months, I have used my personal Instagram as a guinea pig to find out what works and doesn't on the app in terms of gaining a bigger following. Here is what I've found so far: 1. What not to do: - Follow/Unfollow - Buy followers - Misuse hashtags - Post random content - set up automatic DMs - set up automatic comments and likes - post at random times 2. What to do: - Post at the right times according to cold-hard data - Follow only people in your niche - Using the right hashtags (100K-500K posts) - Spend at least 30 minutes a day commenting on those relevant hashtags - Post consistent content (both in style and in substance) - Use DM groups to connect with up to 15 people in your niche at a time, come to an agreement to like each other's content when it goes live) - Use Stories properly (hashtags, polls, mentions, locations) -Create IGTV videos NOW --- Support this podcast:
