EP 89: What the Backstreet Boys Taught me about Marketing and Knowing Your Audience

Updated: 5 days ago

In this episode of The Ashley Avis Podcast, I share a cute story about attending a concert with my six-year-old daughter, featuring AJ McLean from Backstreet Boys and Joey Fatone from NSYNC.

You see, not only was this experience Ah-Mazing! I also had a surprising epiphany that I want to share with you all today. In this episode, you will learn valuable insights on social media strategies, particularly the importance of focusing on your current followers rather than constantly chasing new ones. 

Here's the Scoop: AJ and Joey could have played new songs to promote their upcoming albums, but what did they do? They played songs that resonated with the audience right in front of them, and man, they did a great job of truly understanding us! Which makes me want to ask: Are you doing the same with your online audience? 

What lessons can you learn on your Instagram account from this?

  • Don’t be obsessed with growth and new followers
