Are you feeling overwhelmed by the app that consumes most of your day? I see you. Lots of mindless scrolling. So much time wasted overthinking your captions. Been there. Maybe you are wondering how you can stand out in a sea of others that seem like they have it all together. Girl, I feel you. I have been in that same boat. My approach to Instagram is a little different than other biz owners, and I want to to tell you all about it!
This is a step by step guide on how I grew my business from 400 followers to 40,000 in a year. And how I turned those followers into loyal customers. Taking the seriousness out of Instagram, this guide will break things down in an easy and understandable way!
What Students are Saying:
"A big thank you for creating this course, Sarah! I was ready to turn my hobby into a business - and this course contained all of the info I needed to do that. I have tripled my Instagram followers, and feel like I'm connecting with my target audience. This was such a great investment!"
- Sarah, @shes.scripty
"I poured myself a fresh cup of coffee and flew through it during nap time! The material was a quick and easy read which was most practical for my busy schedule... I've signed up for online courses in the past but this is the first one I've finished in full. In the past I've waited around to receive professional photos before posting anything but your advice on editing gave me more confidence in posting my Iphone snapshots which in turn led to more frequent posts! Your honest image captions and advice on creating honest posts of my own took a bit of stress off the dreadful task of hitting 'share' after typing and retyping the perfect caption. Thanks for creating this course! And keep up the fun lighthearted posts!"

"It’s no secret that Instagram is a super useful business marketing tool and can ultimately help us grow a loyal customer following, but how the heck do we crack the seemingly uncrackable Insta code to success? Well, there is no cut and dry answer. Sorry friends. But, wait! Don’t get discouraged, because while there may not be a foolproof answer, there ARE steps we can take to rock out our Insta feeds, grow a loyal customer following, cultivate an awesome tribe of likeminded creatives, AND have fun while doing it. Umm, and these steps are? Well friends, I’m glad you asked.
Sarah, from Chalkfulloflove, has just released her first e-course: How to Grow you Business + Following on Instagram, and me oh my—it is some good stuff. This e-course takes the headache out of Instagram and reminds us that, while it is a super useful marketing tool, using it doesn’t have to be a total drag! In true CFL fashion, this step-by-step Insta code cracker is witty, lighthearted and just plain fun. And did I mention pretty?
After completing the course, you’ll be walking away with some killer Instagram knowhow. I’m talking tips and tricks on how to shoot some pretty pictures and how to edit them with some of Sarah’s favorite editing apps, or right in Instagram. You’ll also become a rockstar in Instagram strategy—what types of photos to post, how to hashtag like a total (girl)boss, and how to implement certain tricks to organically grow followers (just to name a few).
Cherry on top of this e-course cake? It was the perfect amount! I was able to work through it with dinner simmering on the stove and glass of wine in hand.
Thanks Sarah for making Instagram a little less scary, and a lot more fun!"

"I seriously loved this course! There's so much that goes into maintaining an Instagram, it can seem overwhelming! I loved that everything was broken down chunk by chunk and outlined real ways to apply it to any business, and embrace your own personality, style and brand!"
- Becca, @beccaneblock
"I took Sarah's Instagram course, because I'm a new business and wanted to use Instagram as a way to market myself. I learned so much from Sarah from when to post to how to edit photos. Her materials are simply to follow and very thorough. I took a lot of good information from this course that has enabled me to expand my follower base. I highly recommend this if you are a small business or someone that just enjoys Instagram."
All students will gain access to a invite-only Facebook Group where I will answer and discuss any questions you have over the course! This will give you a chance to join the close knit CFL community! I will be checking in on everyone's progress and watching how you have implemented what you have learned in your own account! The group is a safe place for us to giggle about how silly this app can be and share tips + tricks that are helping us grow our customer base!
Sarah created Chalkfulloflove in the beginning of 2014 and since then has grown a following of over 88k Instagram followers organically that are loyal + engaged customers.
Why this course? There are so many other Instagram courses...
When I started learning Instagram for business there wasn't anything out there. I was unemployed and decided to start my modest Etsy shop in the beginning of 2014. After a few months of just organic Etsy traffic I decided it was time to start marketing. I already loved Instagram and knew it was a great way to grow a business fo free! So, head down and thumbs on the keyboard, I started a business account. I had no help and figured it all out by myself. Is it perfect? No. Am I embarrassed of the photos from 2014? Yes. But you know what happened? It helped me grow my business in one year by 600%.
I understand investing in your business is scary! I have been there. Using the tools and strategy that I have put into this course has grown my business like I never thought possible. Instagram is such a great marketing tool and if you aren't using it for Marketing your business you are missing out on so many great opportunities to share your product or offerings with your target customer! I have done all of the heavy lifting - this is your time to sit back and soak in everything I have learned over the past 4 years of growing my business with Instagram!
