Attract clients through the power of Instagram

Tell me if this sounds familiar…

 

You pop open Instagram over your morning cup of coffee and start scrolling. Everyone else makes it look so easy, but you can’t for the life of you figure out what to post or how to make your feed look cohesive. All those pre-recorded courses you bought and freebies you downloaded were full of pointers and “rules”, but none of them seem to actually work for you.

 

I get it. I’ve been there. And I’m on a mission to help you stand out online and grow your business through strategic brand design and Instagram mentorship. I create a strong visual brand identity that matches the quality of the work you put out into the world, and teach you how to translate it onto Instagram. 

 

So if you’re ready for an original, effective approach that’s 100% strategy and 0% fluff, you’re in the right place.

How can I help you?

Instagram Mentorship

So you started an Instagram account for your business…now what?

 

When it comes to Instagram, it’s easy to feel stuck, overwhelmed, and frustrated—especially when you’re first starting out. Trust me, you’re not alone. And that’s exactly why I created the Nine to Five Brand Instagram Mentorship: Your A-to-Z roadmap to demystify and harness the power of Instagram for your business. This high-touch, highly-individualized 4 week program is a deep dive into the what, why, and how of Instagram for business. It will arm you with a no-fluff, step-by-step system for showing up authentically on Instagram and implement strategies that tangibly move the needle in your business.

Here's what you get:

  • One 60 minute session with me per week for 4 weeks via Zoom
  • Access to a library of customized resources such as recorded replays of all sessions, video tutorials via Kajabi, an in-depth walkthrough of Instagram Insights, full Canva and Stories tutorials, and so much more.
  • 1-1 personalized attention (no group mentorship ever, promise!)

Here's what we'll cover:

  • Session 1: Review

We’ll review your questionnaire, re-write your Instagram bio, and talk about Instagram stories and highlights.

 

  • Session 2: Content

Let’s talk content creation and how to streamline your process. We’ll talk about your current analytics, how to conduct market research, and how to set up 5 corresponding content pillars to pull from. You’ll also receive a custom Trello template that helps you take the research we’ve done and break it down into easy, implementable steps in every phase of creation.

 

  • Session 3: Action

Let’s chat about the structure of a compelling caption with effective CTAs, how to conduct hashtag research with a spreadsheet tracker, and how to drive conversions.

 

  • Session 4: Engagement

Tips for creating an engaged audience and community, growth strategies, where to find client accounts, how to DM, and more.

Kara @kara_janejones

Working with Nine Five Brand was amazing! It was exactly what I needed to help move my business and own brand forward. I always felt stuck because I wasn’t sure how to bring balance between my business and personal content on my page while also keeping the branding looking cohesive. Five Nine Brand helped me learn how to curate my captions, use the right hashtags, and bring a color scheme and aesthetic to my page. I appreciate that I was taught how to do all these things so I could keep making the perfect content for my page!

"When I met Carrissa, I was instantly hooked by her thoughtful designs, strategic implementation and expert direction as we built a brand identity and strategy together. Carrissa brings so much to the table and helps you transition from the corporate mindset to the entrepreneurial mindset. There is no other brand coach that I will trust with my vision and my brand voice. Carrissa is generous with her time, she is generous with her advice and she is truly the expert brand coach in the female entrepreneur space. Regardless of where you are in your business journey, Carrissa is the only person you need for a brand strategy!"

Caitie @femmephasize

I’m so grateful that I found Nine Five Brand! I started my business about a year ago, but honestly haven’t been able to grow it much because I honestly had no idea what to do! That’s where Carrissa comes in- she’s not only helped me completely rebrand, but also taught me how to find clients, engage with them, and build a clear-cut strategy on how to grow my IG following & convert them into paying clients. I don’t know what I would have done if I hadn’t found Carrissa- she saved my business & now I feel I have all the tools to take it to the top! Thank you so much Nine Five Brand!

I have attended lots of workshops and sessions on social media, of various quality. My 1:1 coaching with Carrissa knocked them all out of the park. It was absolutely brilliant. Carrissa is incredibly knowledgeable, and very quickly adapted the training to suit my needs. She was able to quickly read when I got something, and instinctively know when I needed more support and a greater depth. Carrissa not only explained the theory of social media, but looked at how to do it and gave lots of clear examples of how to achieve growth and engagement. I loved that Carrissa did not get side tracked with lots of bitty details about social media but instead very much kept the focus on the big picture, how to promote my brand, engage with the right people and find clients. I learnt more with Carrissa in 1 hour than I had learnt in hours of other tutorials. My coaching session is easily one of the best investments I have made in my business and I cannot thank Carrissa enough for her brilliant session. Highly recommended!
