The next-level guide to instagram strategy and success

“full of little gems of information that seem so obvious, but I would never have thought of. My following has gone from about 30 to over 6.5k”– Helen.

Do you ever look at popular Instagram accounts and wonder how they do it? What are they doing that you aren’t? How are they making this work?

You've read all the ‘IG advice’ blog posts, maybe sat through a webinar or two. Perhaps you even signed up to an e-course and then applied some of the strategies. And nothing much happened. What gives? What’s the secret here?

Honestly? You’re only being given half of the picture.

The truth is that there isn’t just one magic trick – which is why I’ve put together a whole brilliant box of them. Advice and ideas you won’t find anywhere else, because these are my own, tried-and-tested techniques.

This course is my baby; an all-inclusive handbook for Instagram success, full of all the tricks and strategies I share with my mentoring clients, and everything I’ve learned in growing my 140k following.



  • 6 fact-packed, in-depth modules, comprising of over 35 individual lessons
  • Real and actionable strategies to start working on right away
  • PDF ‘cheat sheets‘ recapping key points and strategies
  • Weekly homework assignments to keep you moving forwards
  • An audio download of each lesson, so you can learn on the go
  • Downloads and printables to help you plan and implement your goals
  • Access to active community via the members-only Facebook group, to discuss issues, ideas and inspiration. Get answers to your questions from me and the rest of your class
  • Introduction into community-only comment pods to grow your Instagram engagement
  • Support, coaching and Q&As with me for the duration of the course


EVERYTHING you’d expect from a premium rate Instagram course, plus…

  • How to find your target audience, and get them to discover you too
  • The difference between comments, likes, and clicks – and which is most important for you
  • How to check and analyse your statistics, and draw useful conclusions
  • How to encourage click-through to your site or shop
  • The science behind the algorithm, and how to use it to your advantage
  • How to use Instagram Stories to grow your account
  • How to take much better photos, right now
  • How to create a gallery that is irresistibly followable
  • How to set up a workflow to do all of this in as little as 20 minutes a day
  • and SO much more!

It’s perfectly possible to build a successful instagram account, right now, from whatever you’ve got. It takes three things: hard work, great pictures, and the right strategies.
This course is going to teach you all three, for the same price as 90 minutes of mentoring with me.

“Working with Sara was such a relief after putting so much effort into my Instagram feed for so long, and never understanding why I wasn’t getting anywhere.”

Frequently Asked Questions

When does the course start and finish?
The course starts Tuesday 8th November and runs for seven weeks, allowing a week's break for Christmas. You'll also get extended access at the end to catch up on any content you didn't finish.
How long do I have access to the course?
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.
I’m brand new to using Instagram. Can I still take this course?
Absolutely. If you like to plan ahead and do things with clarity, then taking this course first is a great way to arm yourself in advance. You’ll be required to complete certain tasks on Instagram as you go along, so you’ll need an account set up and ready to begin at the start of the course.
I’ve been using Instagram for a while already. Will I still learn from this course?
YES, definitely! I’ve worked with a wide range of clients from beginners to Instagram pros, and I’ve found we are all always learning. This course will include lots of insight and ideas I’ve developed after three years of professional instagramming, and there will be plenty you’ve never considered or heard about before.
Do I need any special equipment?
To get the most out of the course you’ll need: – a camera – anything from a DSLR down to a smart phone camera is fine! – an android smartphone, or an iPhone – A printer or PDF editor to allow you to complete worksheets – Time to read each weekly lesson, interact with the community and complete the action tasks and homework.
I’ve already had mentoring with you. Do I need this course too?
If everything is going well for you on Instagram, then definitely not! You might find this helpful as a refresher, reminder and update to your knowledge. Previous customers can get up to 50% off – email me for details!
Can’t I just buy likes or followers instead?
This is a total waste of your time and money – likes & follows from spam accounts does nothing to boost your popularity, and over time creates a poor engagement rate and sets your account in bad stead. Instagram periodically delete these false users, and you’re likely to find your purchased followers disappearing overnight.
