Run Your Instagram® like a CEO 

Instagram Marketing for Business Growth
Build an engaged community and paying clients without having 10K followers, dancing on Reels or constant posting – because none of those things have anything to do with growing revenue.



Raise your hand if...

You feel pressured to dance and point on Reels even though you hate it but you think this is "how things are" on Instagram now.

You're obsessively creating content because you've heard that "the more you post, the more you grow".


You're tired of the same basic advice - "post at the right time", "use hashtags", "add value"... (seriously, tell me something I don't know.)

When you finally post, it gets 14 likes, 80 views and you lose 20 followers. #thepainisreal

You work harder on your Instagram everyday but are still NOT making sales. Seems like everyone else has some "secret formula" except for you. 


The "gurus" have been lying to you

The solution isn’t creating more and more posts. Let's face it, "more" bad content isn't going to help anyone.

The solution is tied to 3 strategies: Marketing, Content & Sales. It's about running your Instagram like the robust revenue machine that it's designed to be.

Results don't just come from little tips and tricks. They come from having a tried and tested plan of action.

If you're an entrepreneur taking more than an hour a day on Instagram, this message is for you...

More sales & less stress? Yes please.

Officially celebrating $50K milestone!

ALEXANDRA, @b.the.impact

What if creating an effective Instagram strategy was easy?

What I teach goes beyond the latest "hacks" - it's a system that has worked for my entire career and thousands of students with the changes in audience behavior we have in social media today.


Have a powerful Instagram and scale your business so you can reach more people who LOVE what you have to offer.


Spend less time scrolling or posting every day, because now you have a system so you can get back to what you rather be doing (hello free time, I've missed you!)


Finally start monetizing your account and convert your following (even less than 10K) into loyal, paying clients who keep coming back.

Your A-to-Z system for dream client connection that drives profit.


Imagine this...

You completely sell out your products or services by generating brand love, remarkable content and excitement for your offer. 


You know exactly what to say and how to show up on Reels, feed and Stories.


You wake up in the morning eager to serve your audience because you're inspired and energized with your business.


You're growing an engaged community and making sales even on days when you're not posting.


You wake up to an inbox full of DMs with excited prospects inspired looking to buy from you.

“Carole is an amazing Instagram trainer. She trained our team at NBCUniversal and we increased our traffic by 1,300% and our engagement rate by 270%!!.”

Signing up for this course was a no-brainer. I’d been following Carole on Instagram and she shares so much value and expertise, I could tell that she knows her stuff. Her years of marketing experience show in the course material, which was easy-to-follow and to-the-point. I very much appreciate that as a busy business owner!

This could be you...

Instagram marketing course

My business just skyrocketed! If I can do it, you all can too!

"$27K in new business with less than 6,500 followers. WHAT?! I have grown my engagement x10 and I'm making sales through my stories while creating an amazing community using EVERY strategy in the course. IT JUST WORKS! Thank you for helping me transform my Instagram game and making my business truly profitable as a result."

GABRIELA JOA, Hype Venture


Level Up Your Instagram Game

"This is the Master's degree in Marketing everyone should have been taught but didn't. This course will help your business even beyond Instagram"



"This is the 6th course I've taken with Carole and again, she did not disappoint. I have been making consistent revenue and still get to spend time with my family" 



"As a social media manager, I thought I knew everything there is to know about Instagram. Well, I was wrong! This took my page and my RESULTS to new heights!"



"Most people think posting is marketing but this course teaches you how to have a business strategy so Instagram can work for you and not the other way around!"



"This course is an absolute gem! But my favorite part was the Sales Module. No one teaches this and let me tell you, your sales will never be the same after you learn how to do this properly"



"I have trusted Carole for as long as I've been following her and if you think her free content is good, you are in for a ride! She doesn't hold back in the strategy that you need to be IG successful!"




You have questions, we have answers



Yes! The content is designed at a intermediate to advanced level. Many times even experienced marketers are not executing the best strategies or they have gaps in their knowledge and skills.



There are thousands of self-proclaimed experts out there offering online trainings. The one thing they all have in common is that they just give you a piece of the puzzle. Some of the richest "gurus" out there will break up keys to IG success into 10 different "fast action" pieces or memberships to be purchased separately. This just strings customers along, using psychology to get them hooked without actually leaving them better off.


This is NOT how we decided to run our business. We want to give people EVERYTHING they genuinely needed to have an impact online and achieve profitability by following a method that works. 



Lifetime access.



It includes lifetime access to ALL 5 modules, access to the Exclusive Members-Only Group Live coaching sessions, all BONUS LESSONS plus all the templates to further help with your Instagram® success.



We suggest a commitment of 2-3 hours weekly for 3 weeks and to avoid jumping ahead as the method is structured for the best results. The course is completed at your own pace so you'll get what you put in.


This course will help both services and product based business although it will be most beneficial for service based entrepreneurs.


This course is not for you if you want to become famous, you want to grow overnight or you're looking for fast results without putting in the work.
