#201 – Next Level Instagram and Influencer Marketing Strategies from Selene Dior
Everybody seems to be finding different ways to manage this pandemic. When it comes to e-commerce, it’s like a fault line running right through the community of entrepreneurs.
Those struggling to sell airplane pillows fall on one side. Others, successfully selling adult puzzles and webcams are on the other side. Some were able to pivot and make it across just in time.
Today on the Serious Sellers Podcast, Helium 10’s Director of Training and Chief Brand Evangelist, Bradley Sutton welcomes back one of your (and our) favorite guests. Selene Dior created a 7-figure apparel company famous for stylish swimwear. With pools and beaches closed due to COVID, it looked like her e-commerce future might be in doubt.
Either due to great instincts or a recently discovered psychic ability, just before the pandemic hit, she pivoted to include a large quantity of fitness apparel in her line. That’s enabled her to continue to grow her brand.
In this episode, she offers more tips on how to take advantage of the power of Instagram, as well as cutting-edge strategies on finding the right influencer (at the right level) to help you build your own brand.
