    Top Secrets to Instagram Growth

    Top Secrets to Instagram Growth

    Breaking news: YOU get to decide what "Instagram growth" means for your business. Why? Because *you* have to decide what your ultimate goal is for being on this app in the first place. No sense in getting all crazy about insights and metrics that have no bearing whatsoever on selling your offer (I'm looking at you follower count and Reel views!)

    So to make sure you're not getting *too* lost in the IG sauce these days, I have my friend and fellow podcaster, Allison Scholes on the show to help you reimagine what IG growth means for your business. Allison is an Instagram Coach, Top 100 Podcaster (and an all-around badass business owner) who helps mompreneurs build their IG presence through coaching, creative copy and content.

    PRESS PLAY on this episode to learn how to ditch the overwhelm and not get hung up by all of the new "features" of IG, how to focus on the big picture and the big game of IG to help grow your online community while showcasing your expertise and how the "3 C's" of IG growth will help you create irresistible content for your audience.

Love Elena’s take on bootstrapping

I love Elena’s perspective on bootstrapping. I’m currently doing this too and every episode is jam packed with value and actionable tips. Her solo episodes, where she talks about corporate sales tips and translates them to side gigs or her lessons learned, are my favorite!
