Q & A

  • Please how can we gain visibility on Instagram also how can we drive traffic to our page? Use inbound channels to drive traffic. Example: YouTube, Facebook and other places you interact and sell by sharing your IG link. Also sponsored ads helps too.
  • Please do you teach how to create content? Yes I do
  • Most of the things you stated cannot be carried out for we dropshippers…honestly….my social pages lack all these and I begin to wonder what I am not doing…at times I will just be tired on it…and most times I don’t see jobs too…I render service jobs… All what I mentioned can be carried out by drop shippers except creating videos yourself. This you can ask your supplier to do.
  • I write contents and sometimes I don’t know what else to write is there anything one can do or how can one be generating contents steady on spices ?Content development is easier when you open your eyes and mind to ideas you can use. It is every where. You experience it daily. From product ideas, interaction in your niche to having a mix of jokes quotes etc. It is vast. Just try to learn how to go about it.
  • As someone who is into spices how will one go about creating content for her business, what can one do to have a voice in a saturated market? Create a competitive advantage as l explained in the voice note. Then create contents around that. Also ensure your entire branding is unique.
