5 Marketing Ideas to Try Right Now

Reading Time: 3 minutes


Spring is the perfect time of year to be testing and iterating. We all want to work smarter, right? In this episode, I’m sharing 5 marketing ideas that I am either in the process of testing or using consistently in my own business.

Get ready to hear about a fantastic tool you can use in Instagram to create powerful “conversation starters”, why we all need to jump on mobile-first marketing strategies with SMS outreach, and the incredible ways you can use Chat GPT to brainstorm blog post prompts and SEO-optimized headlines to use in your marketing.

Today’s episode also marks the one year anniversary of the Missions to Movements podcast! And I have a pretty big, audacious goal to reach 100 reviews by the end of March. If you can take 30 seconds to write a sentence or two about the show and what it’s meant to you, it would mean the absolute world to me in celebration of this super special milestone. Leave a review here!

Sneak Peek:

In This Episode:

  • How to prompt conversations and automated workflows in DMs using Manychat
  • The importance of having a mobile-first marketing strategy – especially since US residents check their smartphones on average 352 times a day (!)
  • How to search for user-generated social media content with hashtags AND know your unique, best time to post
  • The most crucial months to be building brand awareness, staying top of mind, cultivating a new audience, and generating new email leads

Notable Quotes from Dana

“Having a mobile first strategy is so important. SMS open rates can be as high as 98%. They produce engagement rates 6 to 8 times higher than email marketing, and consumers are more likely to open text messages before any other form of mobile communication.”

“If you are an organization that gets a lot of DMs on Instagram, responses to your stories or comments, and you wish you had all the time in the world or the staff to respond and really guide someone thoughtfully to the next call to action that you have, this is where the brilliance of Manychat comes into play.”
