My fiancé was always talking about it and I wanted nothing to do with the damn thing.
I’m really not a fan of social media as it is, but finally listenting a testing a bit…
I really think she’s onto something.
Now just a few weeks after getting started with it I’m an addict.
I’m not afraid to admit it, Instagram is BAD ASS!
A year ago I was talking smack about hashtags.
(Still seems dumb to me but man they work.)
My fiance showed me how to get in front of the right audience for my custom car and motorcycle business.
Then seemingly out of the blue, one of the best custom automotive fabricators in the world reached out to me.
Then just a few days ago Jay Leno’s right hand man and “car guy” contacted me via Instagram and wanted to talk to me about my shop.
Not about marketing. He’d never heard of me. He wanted to talk about my shop.
Guess this stuff is legit?
It’s stupid simple to get this level of engagement. I did ZERO marketing. I just showed cool pictures from my shop.
It really is “Marketing For Dummies.”
P.S. Since Instagram is such a visual medium, I’m applying what I’ve learned to everything automotive.
Not many people know this, but I’ve owned a few car lots and custom car shops in my life.
If you know the ropes, the car business can make you a LOT of money really fast.
My buddy did a cool course on how he makes millions buying and selling high end used cars.
It’s the PERFECT business for Instagram too because the visual part does all the marketing for you.
Again, marketing for dummies. Just put the two together and you have something very cool and really simple.
Oh, and follow me on Instagram at @quantumcustoms too!
(I mainly only post cool shit from around my shop.)
