Brooke Vulinovich is an Instagram specialist, international keynote speaker, and the founder of Social Club Membership and Academy. She is one of those people who has a contagious smile and uplifting personality that has helped her shine in the digital marketing world.

Brooke helps businesses leverage the power of social media (mainly Instagram) to increase their brand awareness and their bottom line. Surprisingly, Brooke launched her business way before she was ready and before she had any type of business plan. She just showed up, worked hard, and pivoted to exactly where she wants to be.

In this episode of the ‘Before You’re Ready’ series, Brooke shares her inspirational story of how she built her business without having a game plan and she shares some of her best tips to help you grow on Instagram.

We chatted about:

  • Why (and how) Brooke niched down to coaching others to grow on Instagram
  • The problem with saying ‘yes’ to every client
  • How Brooke broke down her services
  • Why it’s so important to network with people and build relationships
  • How to know you have found a great business idea
  • How to distinguish ‘good nerves’ and ‘bad nerves’ and fighting through those feelings
  • Why you can’t prepare for absolutely everything when starting a business
  • Top tips to help you grow on Instagram and the importance of personal branding
  • The importance of authenticity on social media
  • Why you shouldn’t let your fear of judgment get in your way
  • How to know it’s the right time to start an Instagram account for your business

‘A Girl in Progress’ is available as a podcast on our website and as a video interview series on our YouTube channel–so make sure to subscribe to both to keep up with new episodes!
