Why you should turn on your auto-response on Instagram/Facebook

Ever get, “how much” or “can I book a fill?” in your DM’s? Us too. It’s a great problem to have but it can also be a little tiring having to respond to every single person especially the tire kickers without as little as a hello from the other person or the fact that you’ve put everything you possibly can on your Instagram profile for them to see. 

Don’t sweat it — instead make it easy on yourself and turn on your auto-response with these details:
