Replying to stories is the fastest way to build relationships with an Instagram Influencer. Not only does the influencer see you taking real interest in their message/journey, replying to stories allows you to instantly access their inbox, as opposed to falling into the ‘requests’ folder. If you don’t get a reply the first time – don’t worry! Keep paying attention and responding. If you’re looking to work said influencers on a collaborative level in future, this process builds trust and increases your chances of being able to reach out to influencers you may not otherwise be able to get in contact with.
