find new customers with threads x email

The Instagram Threads app is still as new as a dachshund puppy (or, perhaps, a more relevant newbie – Twitter’s rebranding to X). Upon having a quick Google, you can find out what Instagram Threads is, how to start using Instagram Threads, and other basic topics. There’s little content beyond that. This excites us – a brand-spanking new social media channel. How about it? In this quick guide, we are going to reveal ideas on how to build your profile on the Instagram Threads app by using our preferred platform. Yep… email!

What can email do for Instagram Threads?

Email is an old tool, but it’s incredibly effective at driving traffic from one platform to another. My social media peeps – you’ll be painfully aware that posts are only seen by select chunks of your audience – depending on the algorithm at the time. Email can act as a supporting platform during algorithm changes or when the algorithm is not serving your page exposure well. Plus, it’s fun to introduce a tool in tandem. We don’t want to miss the chance to bring additional demographics across.

email is more reliable. But why?

1.Raise brand awareness

2.Reach new audiences

3.Grow the follower base

4.Notify followers about activity they’ve missed

5.Increase social engagement

  1. Run a giveaway campaign solely on Threads and invite your email contacts to enter

  4. Run an Instagram Live and plug it into a one-off email blast
  5. Set up a special UTM from your emails to Threads containing a product discount

set up a social lead magnet

Instagram can lend a hand to email, too! Create a lead magnet by adding a download in your Insta or Instagram Threads bio. If you’re a cream cheese brand, this might be a mini recipe book, or if you sell collapsible BPA-free water bottles, it could be a money-off voucher. This is a great way of building your marketable database while providing real value to both your prospects and existing customers.
