yes! you can!

You can create stunning designs that attract the very people you want to work with – effortlessly.

YES. You can be insanely proud of your marketing, shouting from the rooftops proudly, instead of hanging your head in shame every time you have to direct a potential client to your Instagram profile.

If you feel like your marketing efforts are falling flat, you’re looking for a solution that doesn’t involve spending $$$ on outsourcing to a designer, and you’re ready to learn some (simple) skills that will take your brand to the next level, then YOU, my friend, are in the right place!

YOU DON'T NEED TO SETTLE FOR LESS 

sound familiar?

BEFORE WE GET INTO ALL THE JUICY DETAILS,

You’re a Realtor who doesn’t know where to start when it comes to showing up on Instagram. You don’t know what to post or how to make it look good or “on brand” – heck, you don’t even know what your brand is!

You feel like social media is a STRUGGLE. You find it hard to stay committed and consistent, and you secretly wish someone would just hand you a blueprint that would take the overwhelm out of Instagram once and for all!

You're tired of going back and forth with a designer. You're a Canva lover (you know your way around a template!) and are pretty confident you can rock some designs yourself. But your creations seem to fall flat and look "amateurish" and you struggle to create content out of fear that it just won't look

YOU’LL KNOW YOU’RE EXACTLY WHERE YOU NEED TO BE IF:

Ditch the
Designer

A 3-step blueprint to mastering your Instagram aesthetic and delivering captivating content consistently.

01

define

MODULE ONE

This module is all about defining your brand. If you've ever felt oh so overwhelmed (to put it mildly) by words like “branding,” “curated,” and “grid aesthetic,”then get ready to be baby-stepped through my simplified branding process.

You'll get complete clarity around your brand and define things like your brand colours, fonts, and unique Instagram style to make sure you're showing up in a way that is authentically you every single time.

You’ll determine your ideal audience (hint – it’s not ALL buyers and sellers!) and learn how to speak to your followers on the ‘gram.

COURSE BREAKDOWN:

MODULE TWO

If you feel like Canva is an awesome tool whose power you have yet to harness fully, this will be your favourite part of the course!

In this module, we'll head into Canva (the best and most user-friendly online design platform) to take the overwhelm out of design and put the fun back into creating visually striking content for Instagram.

You’ll learn some key design basics, then I’ll show you how to create templates for posts, stories, and videos that will flawlessly represent you, your brand, and your business!

deliver

MODULE THREE

If you're not a planner by nature or feel like you have no idea how to stay consistent with your Instagram game-plan, you'll love my tools and systems that lay out everything you need to create posts with ease.

By the end of this module you’ll have a posting plan, know how to write more captivating captions, understand how to maximize engagement on the ‘gram, and get a sneak peek into my exact posting framework!
