The app we hate to love.
The app that we spend the most time on.
The app we obsess over and can't seem to ignore... You know... girl I'm talking about the ol' gram.
Instagram has quickly become our generations new 'hang-out' and while we are hyper-focused on using it for business, is it actually WORKING to grow our brands? Is the time spent giving us the return we THINK? The lost hours coming up with micro-blogs for the feed, to the dozens of stories we perfect... and filter... and post... what's it actually DOING for us?
I'm going to be the first, and probably the ONLY person you follow that is going against the grain by saying, NOT MUCH. Not today anyway... While IG used to be the place to grow a solid, engaged, organic following we've learned the hard way (once again) that when YOU don't own something, it can be taken away. BAM. Just like that.
From 6% engagement and thousands of new followers every month to -1% engagement, shadow boxed posts, hashtags that are hidden, followers that don't see my posts, and TONS of time wasted - here's my unpopular theory...
Get ready, this one is juicy. But, imma bet my bottom dollar it's worth the listen.
Oh, and HAPPY NEW YEAR BABE. Let's get it.
Scaling your brand doesn't ✖️ have to be this frustrating.
Me? I did it all backwards...
I focused on social media, captions, hashtags, video, course creation and spent $1,000s on ads....
For results that were meh. S L O W.
I finally got out of my own way and realized that PODCASTING was the answer to all of my growth problems!
AUDIO IS EXPLODING.
PODCASTING IS THE PREFERRED AUDIO PLATFORM FOR LISTENERS.
THIS IS YOUR CHANCE TO GET IN BEFORE THE MASSES.
People were craving audio, it was growing by over 30% every year, and it was a way for me to SERVE my audience and create more trust and authenticity.
SO... I LAUNCHED ONE.
And hot dang... within 6 months revenue was up by 98% and the community had grown by tens of THOUSANDS. By 11 months we had passed 50K downloads and it keeps compounding...

I launched my podcast in 2018 after searching for a way to scale my coaching business and grow my following in a faster, more authentic way. I decided on podcasting because I have kids (aka. video isn't my jam), and because audio is growing insanely fast and I saw an emerging trend. Last, because committing to a podcast was my way of showing up consistently and dedicating myself to my mission.
What has podcasting done for my business? Well, my podcast grew my revenue by over 98%! My community has grown by thousands and it has allowed me to touch more people than I ever could have imagined.
