“Let me help you grow your Instagram page,” says ‘social media expert’ with 194 followers

GROWTH HACKER: A self-described ‘social media expert’ is offering to help those looking to boost their Instagram profiles, despite boasting a personal following of only 194.

Joel Salanti reportedly slid into a local woman’s DM’s, attempting to sell his services.

The woman, Michelle Dooley, already has more than 30,000 followers.

“Maybe I should be helping him!?” she told DBT.

“I had a look at his profile and he posts about generic rubbish like ‘growth hacking’ and ‘thought leadership’ whatever the fuck that all means.”

DBT had a look at Joel Salanti’s profile to see he had little or no traction on any of his 4858 posts.

We got in touch to see what suggestions he has for DBT to build its following.

He replied instantly saying perhaps we could consider using comedy to engage our audience, so we hired him immediately.
