Imagine getting INBOUND invitations to speak on the biggest stages and shows in your industry. Natasha Samuel, Instagram video strategist and host of the Shine Online Podcast, has personally experienced this over ten times now, so of course I had to bring her on the show to walk us through how she makes it happen. In our conversation, Natasha reveals how she used Instagram to create her own virtual stage - even we she had a small audience - that attracted the attention of industry leaders and resulted in her business getting spotlighted by  the most recognized platforms in the online marketing space, including Instagram’s very own Creators account, Social Media Marketing World, Create & Cultivate, Later Con, The Goal Digger Podcast and more! She landed these game-changing opportunities without sending a single pitch, and today’s case study will help you borrow her same connection + content strategies to maximize your own visibility.
