How many times have we used the “Oh no, I can’t do X, I have to work!” Excuse to get out of doing something we don’t want to do?
I know I have!
But for real, it can be so hard to stop working when you work from home, especially when you are trying to run your own business! There are so many things that need your full attention, so many photos to edit, videos to take, and graphics to make! And so many leads to follow up on and assets to monitor.
A lot of the time, that means that the lines between work and time off from work get blurry. We start working well into the hours of the night that we normally wouldn’t if we had a “regular” 9 to 5 job, and we start spending more time working than we do enjoying our free time. This means our mental health, families, and relationships begin to take a backseat to our jobs…
Look, I understand the hustle! I know how important it is for you to crush it with your business. I know you have to...
You’re out here killin’ it.
You’re getting those likes, those new followers left and right, and you’re seeing more DM’s than ever, and then all the sudden—
You hit a peak. It stops, with maybe a few here and there. So many people hit peaks at their goal numbers as they grow, but just because you’re hitting a snag doesn’t mean there’s no way to get beyond it!!
First, how you’re feeling is valid, and I have been there too. The best thing you need to do is focus on the fact that it’s temporary and isn’t an actual reflection on the success of your business. In fact, with how often Instagram is CONSTANTLY changing its rules and regulations, it’s very likely that you’ll hit a wall at some point. It may even be because Instagram started rewarding a certain type of feature more than another!
So to help you GROW and overcome those blocks, I’ve created the most fail-proof Instagram growth formula:
Going viral is obviously the easiest way of getting your face and your brand out there. Getting it SEEN and showing your dream clients just how much you can help them.
But you’re not going viral. So what’s the DEAL?! What’s wrong? Why not?
Let me share my top three reasons you’re not going viral- and I’ll tell you EXACTLY how to fix this!
Maybe you think you have an idea of who they are. But that’s the issue right there- and IDEA of who they are. You need to 100% be sure of who you’re marketing to. Niche down.
If you’re casting your net too wide, you’re speaking into a void. You already know how DEEP social media runs, with THOUSANDS of posts getting lost in the sea of IG. Too broad of a net, and the perfect client is more likely to miss it. When you’re speaking to everyone, you’re speaking to no one!
Putting your offers out there is such a vulnerable experience. Your offers and products come from YOU. It’s personal, and it’s dear to you! And YOU know how AWESOME your offers are— but how do you correctly convey ALL of that goodness through your posts? Your videos? Your words?
You already KNOW there are people out there who need and can get so much value from what you have to offer. But…
No one is buying. And you’re not only feeling bummed out, those negative thoughts are creeping in, but also, you’re feeling awkward and nervous AF!
So what do you do? How do you GET THOSE SALES and feel MORE CONFIDENT in what you’re offering?
Let’s put an END to your low sales. Here are five reasons why you’re maybe not making the money from IG you should be seeing and how to fix them.
People buy from people who know their stuff. People buy what they believe is trustworthy, honest, and...
I know it can be extremely overwhelming when it comes to creating lnstagram content that STOPS-THE-SCROLL and helps you grow your account. It can seem impossible to increase your engagement and your account can seem stagnant. It feels like the “rules” are always changing & what does good one day, might not do great the next.
Do you feel me!?
Well, here are 8 rules that will never change! If you follow these 8 steps, you’re on your way to growing your following with ideal people!
Posting on Instagram can be a little overwhelming. It can be scary to post and put yourself and your business out there. I have caught myself asking:
But those things held me back from success and held me back from making more money in my business! What did I do? I showed up more confidently! When I had a post that was full of confidence, my engagement skyrocketed- so can yours.
Tip #1: Start Small
There are so many ways to begin this journey of confidence and none of them have to be scary!! Don't feel like you need to start with the HUGE pressure of Reels, Lives, and carousels! Start with a static picture & a caption teaching something or start with a boomerang of yourself on your stories w/ text over it! These are both easy ways to start building your confidence so you can work your way up to the big stuff.
If you’ve spent any time on IG lately, you know that reels are taking over! Reels are starting to be Instagram’s main focus. If you’re someone who is just posting static posts, it’s time to make a change! Let’s work together to create a reel that will not only drive your engagement, but also be FUN.
5 Secrets to increase views on your reels
When we create reels, we need to keep in mind that there are 3 big things we need to accomplish. We need to 1. capture attention, 2. stop the scroll, & 3. make it something that people will either rewatch or send to others to watch! By achieving all 3 of these things, we are not only boosting our IG engagement, but also gaining those ideal clients that connect with our work! So how do we do all three of those things?
Start with a strong hook
When you create a reel, make sure that you start with a strong opening statement that is both spoken and WRITTEN on your video in the first 3 seconds! This will...
Have you ever heard someone say:
The above questions and thoughts are all things I was asked when I started to tell people about my dreams of becoming a biz owner. I received a question like one of those in Every. Single. Conversation.! People in my own family questioned my decisions. My friends were actually concerned! My boyfriend thought I was crazy. People messaged me on IG warning me that I just should stop!
All of this doubt and all of these questions started to build and build until I was questioning myself. I had all of the fear of judgement popping up in my head daily! It was scary! I was thinking about building a...
The ONE THING that frustrates me more than anything else is when people say, “I can’t make sales on Insta. I don’t have enough followers”. Babe, you’ve got it all wrong! Listen closely because this is a myth! I came up with the 3 most successful ways to make all of that cash WITHOUT having 10k followers OR the “Swipe Up” feature.
Now, BEFORE you try these strategies - BE SURE to understand that building trust & standing out as the authority is necessary BEFORE you can make sales consistently! Many of my clients only have 1K-7K followers! And guess what? They make 6 figures a year - how?
They all follow my Signature Soulful Selling Method! This means they have:
I know we ALL have had those moments where we are absolutely scared. It could be that feeling of fear that creeps up on you when you’re trying something new, making a big life change, or taking a leap of faith. That feeling can make you STOP.
But what if you did it anyways?
I remember my big, scary moment. I was ing my pants....! I was shaking. Tears were flooding down my face. My palms were sweaty. My mind was chaotic.
This was the moment I found myself doing the absolute scariest thing I had ever done; I was walking into my bosses office to hand him my resignation letter.
This step in my life was something that I couldn’t prepare myself for. No matter how much I tried to stay calm, breathe, relax, I knew that I was stepping into fear and uncertainty. (And it was scary af!)
But why did I do it anyways? Well, in the words of Helen Keller, “Life is either a daring adventure or nothing at all!”
That quote pushed me forward everyday. I repeated it under my...
