Does Any of This Sound Familiar?

You’ve been stuck at the 400 follower mark for months. You’re posting daily, but your follower count often goes up for a few days, then goes back down again -- no matter what you do.

You see other people growing from 1,000 to 50,000 in a matter of months, and you just don’t get it. Comparing yourself to your competitors makes Instagram feel like one big inadequacy machine.

You have no idea what you’re doing with your feed, or have no clue what to post. You want to post awesome content but you never leave the house, sit around in yoga pants, and don’t have anything interesting to post about.

You still get excited every time your post gets over 100 likes. You’ve considered asking your mom, husband, brother, and BFF for “pity” likes in order to get you into the sweet and glorious land of triple digits.

You regularly post your photos (and everyone who sees it loves your work), but even your own wife doesn’t see your posts on Instagram. What’s the deal? Hashtags? The Algorithm? You have no clue.

You see crazy successful business owners like @anotherseattleartist posting when they have new products in their shop and selling out immediately. Meanwhile, you’re stuck trying to figure out how to get to the point where you’re actually making a profit.

What if I showed you a way to...

Build an effective Instagram strategy that grows your audience by hundreds per day, while taking up as little of your time as possible.

Create and curate content that grabs the attention of your audience and drives engagement through the roof.

Get REAL quantifiable results for all that hard work by turning those followers into raving fans and paying customers?

Hey there!

My name is Brie – a Canadian gal from Toronto, with a green thumb and an obsessive love of cats.

And when I’m not lost amidst the greenery that is my balcony garden, coming up with ridiculous pet names for my cat while speaking to him in a horrendously high pitched voice, or reading as many pages of a book as I can before I inevitably fall asleep after 20 minutes…

...I’m running GoRattleTheStars.com, a social media marketing blog that has helped thousands of entrepreneurs, bloggers, and influencers successfully grow their businesses by harnessing the power of Instagram.

I've also grown my two businesses from 0 to over 110,000+ Instagram followers combined in less than a year, just to prove that I could do this business thing after failing horribly to launch my art career.

With Instagram Launchpad, my goal is to help you grow your audience, gain the recognition you deserve, and increase your profits online – all by becoming a social media BOSS.

I don’t believe in using “growth hacks” or super sleazy shortcut methods that involve putting in the least amount of work possible for questionable results.

I am all about foundational tried-and-true methods that will help you direct real followers to your Instagram account, so you can wow them with your talent, form meaningful relationships, and build the life you’ve always wanted.
