    10 Instagram Commandments for More Sales in 2022

    I was going to call this "How to beat the Instagram algorithm in 2022?", because I knew it would go viral. 
    Give the people what they want, as they say.
    But, here's what I REALLY believe to be true. 
    If you want to beat the algorithm in 2022, you're doing it wrong. 
    Seriously. Eff the algorithm. 
    As business owners and course creators, here's what to do in 2022 on Instagram to sell more stuff. 
    Because, that's what we're really on Instagram for... right?! 
    Let's not forget that. 
    So, here's my 2022 strategy for ditching the algorithm and creating an Instagram strategy that generates sales.

    2021 Year in Review | Five Business and Life Reflections on the Year That Was

    2021 Year in Review | Five Business and Life Reflections on the Year That Was

    I'm not sure 2021 has been the year everyone hoped it would be.
    In the wake of the C-Word in 2020, many of us were hoping for a calmer 2021, perhaps a sense of things "getting back to normal". Oh, how NOT normal 2021 has turned out to be. 
    On a personal note, 2021 has been a year of work. 
    The set up and scale of my group coaching program Launchpad has been a full time job since its foundation round in December 2021. It hasn't been an 'easy' year, but I'm not sure that the process of creating something great - something you're truly, deeply proud of - ever is. 
    In some ways, it reminds me of the year prior to the launch of my first flagship social media course, Hashtags Aren't the Answer. Switching business models. Learning to do something from scratch. Doing the up front work to create something leveraged.
    There's set up involved in that, and just like in 2018 it consumed much of my attention this year. 
    And, just like in 2019, at the end tail end of it I've fallen pregnant! 
    That seems to have been my business journey to date. 
    A big hallmark business year.. followed by a big hallmark 'motherhood' year. 
    Business. Then baby. Business. Then baby. 
    The magical thing is that the way that I have SET my business is up accommodates beautifully the baby part. I couldn't imagine a service based business with a full client load with a little one. Is Launchpad a service business? Yes, but it's leveraged, systemised and streamlined to the hilt. That, I made sure of in 2021. 
    And that's okay. 
    As this year - one that felt long and short all at once - draws to a close, I want to reflect on some of the things I have learnt this year. Some of these are related to courses and online business, some moreso life lessons.
    Let's go!

    Deciding Who is Legit, and Who Just Wants To Be Famous on Instagram

    Deciding Who is Legit, and Who Just Wants To Be Famous on Instagram

    WARNING: Instagram is a fab tool, but there are also plenty of tools on Instagram using it to try to be fab (I was pretty proud of this lame quote 🤣)

    In today's podcast episode, we are discussing the decision making parameters I use when deciding which coaches, suppliers and service providers to engage in my business.

    Overall? Be careful; not everyone is who and what they seem.

    Do your research, and don't always judge a coach or supplier by their Insta-worthy cover.


    PS Enrolment for Launchpad's Jan 2022 start is open until Tuesday. If you're ready to create, launch and scale your digital course in 2022, pick me. Pick US! We care. THAT I can promise you. Head to https://www.steviesayssocial.com/launchpad and we will send you a recording of the live private training we hosted on Thursday with the full framework and an honest Q+A with ALL of the details.

    How Stephanie Made $12k in Her Very First Online Course Launch With a Tiny Email List

    Creating a digital course for travel agents in the middle of a pandemic which left the entire industry on its knees is NOT exactly the 'ideal' circumstances in which to start a business, and yet it is exactly what Steph successfully did in 2021 (and with a tiny audience and email list to boot!)

    The challenges Steph faced attempting to create a digital course in tough industry circumstances and how she shifted her mindset to navigate them skilfully;The "up front" work involved in being a course creator (hint: it's not all laptops and pina coladas by the pool!); How Steph knew that her course idea was a winner; How Steph achieved a stellar conversion rate in her first launch that smashed through standard benchmarks even with a tiny list and small audience;And more!------
