Free your thumbs: we do your social media, you do less phone time and more fancy-free time
Supersavvy social media marketing for small businesses in a proper posting pickle. Give your brain a break, use ours instead.
To you, it’s a fancy rectangle full of apps you can’t stop opening. To us, it’s an opportunity to get your business seen, heard and loved
The only thing stopping your business from reaching a possible 4.7 billion people on social media is how you use that rectangle you carry around in your hand all day long.
We’re here to help you take your small business social media marketing from a box-ticking exercise (you kind of hate) to a focused, fun, business-growing activity (you kind of love).
We want every post you share, every Story you tell, and every Reel you record to feel thumb-throbbingly good for you and all the Story-swiping, double-tap liking, comment-leaving, Reel-repeating, VN-sending folks who follow you.
How about that?

The internet never forgets (so make your Instagram marketing worth remembering): get InstaBrains
Hate Facebook groups? Calendar rammed with (unattended) business workshops you signed up for with the best of intentions? Rather sell pictures of your feet online than sign up for another 6-month long coaching container?

Inside our self-paced, 12-step kit, you’ll learn everything you’ll ever need to know about running a successful Instagram account for your business.
Drop screen time
When you know how to use Instagram properly, you’ll spend less time on it.
(Don’t tell Meta we said that.) Why spend your life on your phone when all the expert Instagram marketing we’ve crammed into InstaBrains proves you don’t have to live online to succeed!

Spend less dosh
Social media marketing is 1 of the most in-demand skills you can invest in.
Never hire a social media manager again (unless you fancy it). InstaBrains kits you out so you can run and build your Instagram account with the kind of cash-efficiency that would make HMRC jealous.
