I have built my career empowering entrepreneurs and marketing professionals to utilize the power of Instagram to get tangible business results.

My entrepreneurial journey

starts 30 years ago…

Since my first business hit 7 figures in sales at the age of 22...I have spent my career following trends which have been driven by my passion for entrepreneurship. I've opened more businesses than I can count on one hand to allow me to prioritize what matters most - my family.

And while my resume includes everything from children’s art classes to selling $5,000 worth of products a minute on QVC, it wasn’t until I became the Instagram expert that I found the true freedom, flexibility, and purpose that I didn’t even know I was after.

Before I started teaching online, I had a retail shop, SueB.Do. While a success at face value - the schedule was nothing short of a constant marathon. I spent hours a week merchandising the store, taking inventory and ordering stock. In my ‘free time’ I would work 14 hours days driving to local towns at sunrise and setting up ‘pop-up’ tents at local craft fairs. I was doing 'pop-ups' for my store LONG before it was something trendy for brands big cities...I'm looking at you All Birds!  

I THOUGHT I had freedom because I was working for myself. And I THOUGHT I had flexibility because I set the schedule. But in reality, I was probably working far too many hours for the income I was bringing in...and a slave to a minivan full of beach tunics and bracelets that needed to be sold before the New England leaves changed in the fall. 

That was 7 years ago,

but it feels like yesterday.

TODAY I'M KNOWN AS...

I’m a leader in the Instagram marketing field, having developed the most comprehensive online Instagram course, Ready Set Gram.

As a highly sought after business coach, I’ve traveled the world speaking, inspiring, and sharing my knowledge and extensive experience in social media marketing, including producing popular courses on CreativeLive, at universities, and professional conferences like Social Media Marketing World 2014-2019 and other prominent stages.

I use my knack for sales and marketing to teach Instagram and online business strategies that have helped gain my students' thousands of followers and generate revenue that supports families across the globe.

I’m known for believing in you before you believe in yourself, no bullshit feedback that helps you make your dreams happen, a solid brilliant team of women who help me reach more people and make a difference, and for a tight-knit online community of rockstar entrepreneurs that champion each other every day. My community may be the thing I am most proud to have created.

I’m pretty sure I can picture where you are right now

(because I’ve been there before)...

You are apprehensive to try and make time to put yourself first when your day to day schedule already feels like it’s filled to the brim.

You’re nervous about the technology required for an online business and terms like Algorithm, SEO or GIF sound like a foreign language.

You are looking for a creative outlet to be your authentic self and be accepted (even honored) for your quirky personality.

Most of your work days probably feel like you're running on a hamster wheel...

Hours emailing or cold calling without generating the revenue you deserve.

Missing family dinners or half listening to your spouse about their day because the “emergency” with a client pulled you away.

Constantly writing and re-writing your social media posts or email newsletters -  sometimes giving up and not publishing at all because you don’t truly believe anyone online actually cares what you have to say.

I want to help get your life back.

To help you feel present and proud, and consistently end your week on a high note. (hopefully with a cucumber mojito in hand or a foot massage on the calendar for Saturday, right?)

Instead of grinding day in and day out

don’t you wish you could...

Stop wasting time, second-guessing yourself and your plans. Instead, wake up each morning knowing your value, feeling confident and clear on what tasks you need to do, and calls you need to make to get where you want to be in your business.

Connect with a community of that just gets you. A community who understand your business model when no one else does, and who empowers you to commit and accomplish your goals.

Communicate with the right audience and generating a consistent flow of leads daily, so you make sales in the carpool line or cooking dinner.

Well, it may be hard to believe, but that’s what Instagram and online marketing has given me.

500 million Instagram users log into the platform every single day.

60% of Instagram users seek out and discover new products on Instagram.

75% of users take action, like visiting a website or adding a product to a shopping cart.

I am almost 100% certain that your community is on Instagram, just waiting for you to post and engage with them.

I like to say that "Instagram is a village" with related BUT varying neighborhoods aka all of the different areas you can participate in when you are in the Instagram app.  Whether you are an Instagram beginner or someone who frequents all 4 neighborhoods - there is always something new to learn to up-level your strategy.

Pick a neighborhood below to get step by step instruction to grow your followers and get conversions - no matter where you are currently focused on developing your Instagram account.

A little Bit More About Me

I have a degree in nutrition, which I've never used. But I am a big believer in being healthy. In fact, when I'm not Instagramming you can find me rollerblading along the water on Cape Cod with my cute cockapoo.

I won best water-skier at summer camp, which is the same place I meet my husband, Roger, when I was just 13 years old. (Extra fun fact: we were wearing the same shirt.)

I am addicted to blowouts, colorful nails, and bright colored clothing.

"Sue B. helped me to think critically about my business account -
who my audience is, who I am really targeting as customers, and how I want our profile to look and feel in order to help sell our products. I've learned that without having to leave the app, consumers can purchase in less clicks, and we have found a significant increase of sales by using this feature."
