How to get your first 1,000 Instagram followers: free workshop with Later

A few weeks ago, I flew to my hometown of Vancouver, BC and worked with the Later.com crew to create *brand new* (and free!) Instagram training for you. 

If you're not familiar with Later, it's one of the O.G. scheduling apps for Instagram. 

Today, there are over a MILLION Later users who use the tool to plan their feed and save a ton of time.

If you're using Instagram to grow your business, you'll know that starting a new Instagram account in 2018 is a LOT harder than it used to be!

I've seen the change... I've been growing accounts for business for the past 5 years.

How about we talk about the real stuff that it takes to generate those numbers?

That's exactly why I started sharing income reports this year. Because I feel strongly about giving you the full picture, not just the pretty, surface level numbers.

About 4 years ago, I was working as a social media manager for a tech incubator in Toronto.

While it wasn't the worst job I've ever had, it didn't meet all of my goals.

...Goals to be location independent and to travel more than 2 weeks of the year.

I wanted to travel the world, have more control over my working hours and achieve my dream of running my own business.

(I also knew I was kinda bossy... and wanted to channel that energy towards my own biz versus my co-workers. πŸ˜›)

But I was stuck.

I had no idea how to make any of this happen – even after reading The 4-Hour Workweek.

That was until one day... I received a casual Facebook message that changed my life (more on that below).

Elise in February:

"Hmm... after two business conferences this month, how can I make March more interesting?

I know – ANOTHER business conference and 9 days in Mexico!"

In last month's report, I emphasized the importance of strategic planning.

So this month, I really focused on being heads-down in my work before all the travels started up again.

In the week leading up to my Mexico trip, I focused on my ONE THING:

"Instagram is the most important platform to grow your business in 2018." - Russell Brunson, co-founder of ClickFunnels.

When Russell uttered these words at this year's Funnel Hacking Live in Orlando, I shot my phone up into the air above the seated crowd and started recording the rest of his 15-minute presentation (as my arm quivered and shook).

At the same time, I was internally freaking out.

It was a full circle moment that renewed my passion for helping freelancers and entrepreneurs grow their business through Instagram.

So why is Instagram the most important social network?
