How this digital marketer got $27,000 in new business through Instagram — with less than 1,000 followers

How this digital marketer got $27,000 in new business through Instagram — with less than 1,000 followers

Welcome back to another special case study feature here on the Elise Darma Blog!

This week, we’re chatting to: Brandy Kinnear. Brandy is a digital marketing strategist and growth consultant for natural health doctors.

Brandy watched my free InstaGrowth boss masterclass in March 2018… and it didn’t take her long to hit the ground running and meet some pretty impressive milestones!

By October, Brandy had closed three high-ticket clients — including one that brought $7,000 into her business! 😲

But wait, there’s more.

In January, Brandy had more good news for me. Her total revenue from Instagram: about $20,000. 😲😲😲

Twenty. Thousand. Dollars.

A few short weeks later, Brandy landed another $7,000 client, and she’s now at over $27K+ in revenue generated from Instagram.

Obviously, I was curious about how Brandy took her Instagram from 🤷‍♀️ to ahhhh! in less than a year.

I decided to pick her brain on what Instagram strategies and best practices she found success with, and how her fellow digital marketers can follow suit.

Here’s what Brandy told me 👇

How this entrepreneur sold $50K+ worth of event tickets — with just 2,000 Instagram followers

This case study is all about Sara Christensen of Kickass Masterminds — one of the industry’s top mastermind groups. Like me, Sara has seen how powerful and profitable Instagram can be for biz.

After doing an Instagram strategy session with me in January 2018, Sara made Kickass Mastermind’s Instagram account one of her main focuses. She consistently put my strategies into action and grew her following to about 2,000 followers.

Two thousand doesn’t sound that impressive, right? Except that she focused on quality over quantity. It paid off.

The quality of her followers mattered more to Sara because Kickass Masterminds is a business that’s all about people. In the world of masterminds, Kickass is the best in the biz.

Near the end of 2018, Kickass Masterminds SOLD OUT its exclusive three-day Mastermind Live event. This event was capped at 40-ish people and tickets were an investment of up to $2,000.

But Sara sold it out in a matter of weeks — all by leveraging the power of Instagram. 😲

How did she do it? Almost a year to the day of our first Instagram strategy session call, we chatted again so she could fill me in on her awesome success.

Here’s how Sara invested in Instagram for business and leveraged the platform to make *real* results happen 👇
