Have you ever met anyone who doesn’t like FREE stuff? Neither have I. That’s why giveaways are such a fantastic way to grab your audience’s attention and leverage their desire to WIN.

With the potential to go viral, you can grow your brand awareness and create some extra buzz by hosting an Instagram giveaway that will attract prospective clients.

More importantly, it will allow you to expand your inner circle by involving other vendors you love!

“Your network is your net worth.”

Jai’s been running solo and co-hosted giveaways since 2012 but in this Make Your Break podcast episode, he invited Annelise from Annelise Page Photography to share her perspective.
