"As I'm traveling and staying at hotels for free, I am doing a mutual exchange where I am promoting these hotels on our pages... they give us free nights and sometimes flights...I always tell people to think about your strengths and can offer in exchange for free nights." - Zach Benson

Zach is from Assistagram and is an Instagram "luxury connoisseur."

Zach travels for FREE everywhere he goes; he has received over 580 nights for free at five star luxury hotels along with some plane tickets! He is currently in Bali, staying at a 5-star hotel for free. 

We do the marketing for the marketers! We are really good at making things go viral.

Some Topics We Discussed:

  • Zach's backstory - how he build a six-figure business teaching dance;
  • What is Assistagram and how do we "do it?"
  • How does Zach travel for free and how can the "average Joe" replicate this?
  • How can you offer your services for "free"? - Place a value on your abilities and strengths;
  • Client acquisition;
  • How to approach the exchange of services - phone, email and communication;
  • "Lightbulb moments";
  • Mastering "cold outreach";
  • Zach's journey to his current role;
  • How Zach's experience on So You Think You Can Dance helped push him to where he is now.
