The ultimate Instagram® Marketing Course for Business designed to help you attract hyper-targeted followers, create remarkable content, increase your engagement & turn followers into paying customers. 

You're in good company

Raise your hand if...

You have an Instagram® account, but somehow it has stopped being fun and results aren't that great. You're not generating the revenue you see other people achieving. Why does it have to be so hard? 

You're struggling with less than 10,000 followers and every time you log into Instagram®, you feel sooo teeny tiny compared to everyone. UGH!

You're posting like your life depends on it - but when you post, it only gets 3 likes... and one of them is from mom. It feels like pulling teeth!! #thepainisreal

You work hard on your content, but keep seeing less and less engagement and no sales. Seems like everyone else has some secret formula except for you. You feel like an outsider looking in wondering "what am I doing wrong?"

You've been on Instagram® for a while, you're frustrated and about to break up with it... For real this time.

Helloooo, this IG thing takes so much time. Oh and did I mention it takes physical energy, discipline and self-confidence? Yes, you will have times when you want to quit. Comparison-itis galore! HAPPENS TO ALL OF US. But please don’t quit. If you're at a point in your business where you need strategies that go beyond hashtags and memes, then you're in the right place.

Getting paid while using IG? What?

Here's the thing... I know that your business has incredible potential. So what if you could get your hands on the #1 system used by top brands?

Once on The Gram Mastery™ you'll quickly learn to:

  • Grow your Instagram® account with quality followers.

  • Get more engagement from your community (Likes, Shares, & Saves).

  • Know what content to post on each placement and how often with a proven roadmap.

  • Run Instagram ads the way agencies do (no more wasting $$$ on "boosting").

  • To turn your followers into high paying & returning customers.

The Gram Mastery™ is not an Instagram® course, it's THE Instagram® course.

So, how is this course different?

I know what you're thinking... Can't I just Google my way through learning Instagram®? Can't I just do whatever other IG Coaches tell me to? I've already taken like a billion free webinars on this stuff! What's new here?

Here's where it's going to get really exciting: our Instagram® blueprint is based on our proprietary TGM Instagram® Method used by top brands and has generated over $25mm in revenue in the past 5 years.

We've been asked thousands of times to release the exact Social Media strategy we've used on brands to generate sales. It's what happens backstage that makes businesses shoot to superstardom.

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 Stories, Reels, Lives and all new Instagram® placements.

Instagram marketing course

Unlike other programs, our methods go beyond simple strategies and mentoring techniques. We know that gimmicks don’t create long-term results – a business-first approach is the key to your success. Even a great strategy won’t succeed without the right way to implement it.

is this course for?

Regardless of what you do, I'm sure of one thing: you want results without having to spend hours on the 'gram EVERY.SINGLE.DAY. Whether you're...

An entrepreneur, brand, coach, or traditional marketer, who has an Instagram® account and doesn't want yet another basic IG course because helloooo, you have a business to run and need to start seeing real REVENUE. 


A service provider who's tired of trading dollars for hours and is ready to build a business that impacts lives and adds to your bottom line.


A corporate employee who dreams of ditching the cubicle and the 9-5, while delivering quality work for clients or running your own online biz from wherever you want (Bahamas? Paris? We teach, you decide!) 

By the end of this program you will have:

TGM goes way beyond Instagram® posting to not only grow your IG but your business as a whole.

Proven Instagram® strategy framework

Receive meaningful engagement from your content and get opportunities flooding into your DM's daily.

Increase in engagement & DM's

See an increase in targeted, new followers who are actually a good fit for your offer.

Growth of targeted quality followers

A "business-first" approach that teaches you how to monetize your current following while growing leads.

More leads & conversions = PROFIT

The ONLY Instagram® course for business that teaches you an Organic + Paid Instagram® strategy to scale your business to 5, 6 & 7 figures.

New world,

New you.

What if you woke up to DM’s saying "You are speaking to me! How can I get your product?" 

What if you knew exactly what to post & became a MAGNET to your customer?

So here's what people get wrong... It's not JUST about content, it's not JUST about the algorithm, it's not JUST about being authentic, and it's certainly not JUST about followers count.


It's about a comprehensive and advanced strategy that regular training courses don't cover. Here I'm giving you the keys so you can scale your business & look like a pro without paying for one.

Help me help YOU (this is personal)

Back in 2015, I started The Digital Buzz to bring joy back to doing Social Media Marketing. I was over fast, cheap tips and tricks that just didn’t work. I wasn’t into the lengthy, expensive courses either. 

Over the last 5 years, we've taught thousands of students with one goal in mind: Online results for everyone.

I realized most people don’t have the results they would like or deserve. The reason? Online marketing is hard. It’s that simple. Running a business is tricky, Instagram® is fussy, and the right tools are hard to find. 

We believe no matter who you are, where you live or what you do, you deserve online revenue that allows you to live your best life.

So here's what I would like to ask for you. Make 2021 the year of YES. The year of investing in yourself. 

I can't wait to meet you and cheer you on to your inevitable success!

YOU belong here

Convert your Instagram followers into paying customers using a proven strategy without having to post every day.
