Cash in on your Passions with Instagram.
(No tech skills, camera skills, or rich husbands required)
If you’ve tried Instagram and it’s not working for you, chances are good that your account is a real snoozer.
You either have bad photos, sales-y captions or no discernable purpose for posting beyond telling us that you got an extra nap in this week!
If this sounds like you, no wonder you’re not getting followers and landing awesome clients! On Instagram, you have to show that you’re awesome, not yawn-some.
Instagram is not just for the kiddos. It’s also for you, if you like money.
The most important thing to know about Instagram is it’s where people go to shop.
Facebook is for friends and family. Pinterest is for projects. And Twitter is for… tweeting.
Instagram is like a magical land where brands talk and people listen.
It’s also where you go to meet the types of clients you really want from the comfort of just about anywhere - without having to bother with fixing your messy bun or digging in your lingerie drawer to find your favorite bra.
So how can Instagram make you more successful?
Simply put, Instagram opens doors.
Imagine hosting a champagne brunch for all the big-name clients you met on Instagram…
… Or getting featured in Conde Nast Traveler or the New York Times because the editor discovered you when you followed her and left an astute comment on her picture
… Or receiving an invitation to speak at Elevate Women’s Network because you followed their camera guy on Instagram
… Or meeting Calvin Harris at a private Art Basel soiree because you were invited by a brand you regularly engage with on Instagram
All of this is possible - and has happened to our clients - by being on Instagram.
A champagne-worthy Instagram account is within your reach
- even on a shoe-string budget - with Social Brand School.
Selling your lipstick, weight loss coaching, or MLM is not about what you know. It’s about who you know – on Instagram.
All of these people are meet-able on the Gram, you just have to start posting great content.
Would you go to a networking event in your pajamas?
Before a networking event, you put on a great outfit, practice your elevator speech, and slip some business cards in your clutch.
Before you can connect with people on Instagram, you create great content.
Content – your pictures and captions – do the talking for you. They tell people what you do and why you’re so darn good at it. Your content should draw in your ideal customer and help them KLT-you.
The Most Profitable Sandwich in the World: The KLT
Being beautiful will only get you so far. You can't just post pretty pictures. On Instagram, your content should focus on showing people exactly how you get them results and why it's so great to work with you or buy your products. You want people to KNOW, LIKE, and TRUST you. Great content does that for you automatically.
Once you have great content, you're ready to connect.
Would you go to a networking event and just stand in the corner eating ranch-covered carrot sticks?
No. You would have conversations. On Instagram, once you’re posting great content, it’s time to reach out. Follow people. Like their photos and respond to their captions. With a few simple techniques, you can use follows, likes and comments to build a network of people who KLT-you.
If you’ve got real chops, great content and an effective method for connecting with your dream clients regularly, you’ll be successful on Instagram. We can show you exactly how.

If the thought of taking a selfie every day makes you want to take an Uber off the nearest cliff - but you’ve been told a million times how much you need to get on Instagram, then we’re so glad you found us!
We didn’t grow up in the era of selfie sticks either. The thought of looking like a tourist with our phone on the end of a ten-foot pole makes us cringe. Might as well throw on a Mickey Mouse hat, some white Reeboks, and a fanny pack while you’re at it!
We’re the type of women who’d prefer something vintage from Filene’s Basement to over-priced couture, so we know a good deal when we see one.
And right now? Instagram is a VERY good deal. Here’s why.
Think of your best customer or client. Now, imagine being able to tell all of her friends about your business in a single day without paying a penny. On Instagram, you’re supposed to do that - unlike on Facebook - where people will just assume you’re a serial killer if you friend a stranger.
So if you’ve ever thought to yourself, “Do people REALLY do business on Instagram? Isn’t it just all pretty pictures? Or kids’ stuff?” The answer is, “It used to be.”
Now, it’s the place people go to shop – right from their Instagram feed.
We started on Instagram, just like you - with no followers.
By the time we had 2,000 followers, we were making a teacher’s salary.
A few months ago, we earned enough to buy a house in a single week – just by posting on Instagram.
We’ve also helped our clients do some pretty surprising things with Instagram:
We helped an event planner land Christian Dior as her client.
We showed a dietitian how to get 300 clients on the platform. (She also became the official dietitian for the Miami Marlins and Del Monte Fresh Produce! Bonus points!)
We taught Laura Belgray, founder of Talking Shrimp and co-creator of The Copy Cure - her writing program with Marie Forleo, the ins and outs of Instagram. Back then, she hated the platform. Now, she says it’s “one of the greatest joys in my business.” She even told Money magazine that she now gets paid $6,000 a day to write quotes on Instagram.
We helped one of the most influential women in the art world take her consulting practice “social” so she could get international clients who had never heard of her before, instead of relying solely on referrals.
We helped an artist use Instagram to land a magazine placement she had been trying to get for ten years.
We could talk your ear off for hours, but we can already see your wheels turning…
Wondering how that all went down?
- We make imagery the most important thing. Most experts will tell you they can get you a ton of followers, and they’re right. But if you want to keep those followers, you’ll need great photos. We create the best Instagram photography on the scene.
- We focus on building your network, not just your followers. Many influential people have Instagram – you just have to know where to find them. Editors, PR people, personal assistants to all your favorite celebrities… You can connect with them all. You just need to look like a pro before you reach out.
- We know how to tell your story so that people want you. If you run the type of business that makes people say, “I NEED to work with HER.” then you run the type of business we can help grow on Instagram.
Ready to take a ride on that gravy train?
Let's do this!
