I would like to learn how to master Instagram and gain more exposure for my online business without having to sell or chase leads.
I feel like social media is taking over my life. It seems like I always have to think about my next post.
I feel that using Instagram for my online business is a waste of time. It yields no results.
My account isn't growing, I have no idea how to reach more people and create a greater impact.
Having a sales funnel for my online business sounds like a good idea, but I have no idea how to set one up.
I would like a simple step-by-step strategy to guide me as I build my influence to gain more exposure for my business.
I need some help with planning my daily tasks for my business to learn how to become more productive
I would like my followers to reach out to me for more info rather than always being the one chasing clients and customers.
I don't know how to create an irresistible offer.
My Instagram journey has been a long one! To name just a few of the mistakes that I made:
1- I spent too much time in my DMs.
I started using the platform three years ago for my network marketing business. I would spend hours sending DMs to enroll only a few customers. I felt discouraged and frustrated.
2- I relied too heavily on the follow-for-follow strategy.
I didn't know how to produce the right content and use the right hashtags to grow my account, so I relied heavily on the follow-for-follow strategy.
A few months later, I started taking a bunch of online courses to learn how to use Instagram "the right way." I learned about the importance of creating a sales funnel for my Instagram bio. I set one up but kept growing my account mostly by following other accounts because creating "quality content" still felt elusive.
3- I favored quantity over quality.
I would spend hours planning my posts each month. However, I didn't think about how to create shareable content. One piece of shareable content is better than 10 pieces of content that will never be shared.
4- I failed to understand what my audience really wanted.
I never looked at my Insights to learn more about my top-performing posts. I didn't know how to refine my content strategy based on what my audience wanted.
5- I focused on esthetics over content.
I thought Instagram was supposed to look pretty. After taking one of the many Instagram courses I purchased over the years, I spent hours coming up with beautiful quotes and planning my feed using Planoly to make sure my feed looked curated.
Needless to say, I grew frustrated by the amount of time I had to spend on Instagram. For about six months, I gave up.
6- I treated Instagram as an influencer, not as a business owner.
I focused on the number of followers and likes when business owners need to focus on website clicks and profile visits. For business owners, Instagram is about creating authentic connections with your audience and your customers. It's about growing your mailing list by helping your followers solve their problems.
Everything changed when I stopped focusing on numbers and started asking: "What can I learn from my followers?"
It doesn't matter how many followers you have, you can learn valuable information from them to grow your account and gain more customers for your online business.
Time to take the pressure off and start enjoying Instagram again!

How does lifetime access sound? After enrolling, you have unlimited access to this course for as long as you like - across any and all devices you own.
What if I don't have an Instagram account yet?
This course will help you set one up from scratch. However, generally speaking, it is meant for those who already have some understanding of how Instagram works.
Will I need expensive tools to implement what's in the course?
You can do everything I teach in the course for free. However, I do recommend you get a Canva subscription and pay for a decent email service provider.

Absolutely! Even though it isn't the focus of the course, I share my favorite Instagram growth strategies. Furthermore, I created an Instagram Growth Strategy downloadable worksheet to helps you experiment with the best strategies for your account.
Will this course help me get more visitors to my Website?
Yes and yes! This is the main goal we want to achieve.
How many followers do I need to start seeing results?
You don't need a large following to start getting website clicks. I would say you can expect to see results very early on, with less than 500 followers.
If not, maybe it's time to try something different. Where do you want to be in five years? Exactly where you are now, or would you like to be the owner of a mailing list including tens of thousands of subscribers? Would you like to have a huge Instagram account that provides your with leads on autopilot every single day? People sending you emails and reaching out to you to learn more?
Would you like to be able to finally earn the income that will allow you to have the freedom to do the things you love.
If you take action today, this could be your life five years from now.
