Hey guys it’s your friend Courtney and over the next few minutes I’m going to share an incredible story with you.

If you’ve been hanging around these parts for a while, you probably know my story.

Working with makers to build their businesses at my craft markets, developing marketing strategies for creatives while I worked my 9 am – 5 pm, ending up at Etsy and then starting Maker Academy with my partner in life and crime, Elliot and building it up to a point where we said Buh-bye to our full time jobs.

But can I tell you something really personal?...

What you may not know is that my journey to make it at Etsy almost ruined me.

I would spend hours and hours working on something and feel totally crushed when no one was buying.

In fact, at one point, I was forced to move into a tiny spare bedroom in my mum’s house.

I even missed my high school reunion. I was too embarrassed to go, thinking everyone would see me as a loser that never amounted to anything.

But then, through a chance encounter, bumping into a when talking with an Etsy seller friend and spilling my guts over a cup of coffee, I accidentally developed this Instagram project which led me to you.

This project was so amazingly effective and simple that I begun to see the results immediately.

What I’m talking about is a systematic, easy to follow, step by step system that produced

200k followers in under a year!

It’s the exact system used by Etsy sellers and makers like you to build big Instagram followings who actually buy your stuff.

It’s a step by step system to dominate Instagram and use it to drive massive sales on your Etsy store.

From yours truly…

Me, Courtney one of the most followed and sought after Etsy Instagram experts in the world.


My system has been used by Etsy sellers and makers from all walks of life to build profitable businesses from Instagram.

  • The administrative assistant
    who used it to quit her full time job and make a living off her craft.
  • The candle maker
    who used to see average sales at craft fairs and is now exploding with sales coming in regularly
  • Stay at home mums
    have used it to bring their families much needed additional income.
  • Students
    have used it to live the life they always dreamed of.

And countless women and men makers from all over the world have used this system to kiss their cubicle good bye and finally live life on their terms.

“I’m killing it using Instagram. If you want to build an engaged following that actually buys from you, follow what Courtney and Elliot tell you step by step. It’s like having a treasure map!”

- Diana S., Portland, Oregon


As the co-founder of Maker Academy and creator of InstaBuzz, the go to resource for Etsy sellers and makers like you who want to drive massive sales to their store in record time, I’ve seen it all!

When I started my own journey with Etsy, brought tons of hard earned experience helping makers in my craft fairs grow their businesses.

See, when they made me a job offer, everyone in the room (including me) thought that my craft fair experience would easily translate into the online world.

We quickly found that this was not true at all!...

But there was a silver lining. Rather than just helping 100 makers a month, at Etsy I was able to impact thousands. This gave me unprecedented access to see, firsthand, what worked to grow online sales quickly. I also got to see what failed, and helped my makers get back on track quickly.

I spent many painful months studying trends and trying to figure out how to get visitors to their stores systematically and consistently.

We tried Facebook ads, Posting to Facebook Groups, SEO, and virtually every internet marketing trick in the book. We tried them all and the results were so so at best and even disastrous at times.

Our last ditch effort was Instagram...


The first maker that took the leap and decided to give Instagram a go was super brave.

She Started With a Brand New Account, Zero Followers, and No Budget

(Seriously not a single dollar)

Using only an out of date iPhone, we quickly discovered a very formulaic system that could be reproduced time after time. We developed strategies and techniques to light an Instagram account on fire!

We saw her follower count growing by double and sometimes even triple digits every day.

The best part?

Her new followers were real people that liked her stuff and actually bought items from her store.

On average, we would see that each new follower would mean between $1 and $4 worth of sales every month.

So adding just 1000 new Instagram followers, meant as much as $4000 in NEW sales that month.

After several weeks of seeing these stellar results coming in predictably, we were pinching ourselves. It seemed like a dream.

It was so easy and on top of that, a heck of a lot of fun!

I mean we were engaging with real people, not analytics. We got to speak directly to the source instead of wasting hours pouring over analytics and seriously complicated “marketing stuff.”

These followers became a crazily engaged community who loved her work!

Our followers quickly signed up to our email list, bought our products and as her Instagram account exploded...so did her Etsy store!

The best part?

We didn’t spend a single dime to build her following! It was a 100% free way to get people to visit her store.


Here’s what this has to do with YOU…

See, I had been keeping our little Instagram experiment quiet. I didn’t want to tell anyone about it, just in case we fell flat on our faces again.

After a couple of months though, I couldn’t handle it anymore and I wanted to shout it from the top of the building.

I mean, we had discovered how to build a massive online store using Instagram followers that were 100% free.

I quietly let a few more handmade sellers and makers in on the secret strategies we had developed, and before long, this was working for dozens and later hundreds of makers.

Without fail, they were all building up their Etsy stores and their incomes up to the level they wanted, in record time!

Whether they were making an extra $500, $2,000 a month, $5,000 a month, $10,000 a month or more, our strategies were simple enough, repeatable, and most importantly scalable enough to get them there.

And it worked no matter what their product line consisted of.

Meaning it worked to sell soy candles, illustrations, paper art, accessories and more. Nearly any product you can think of would sell like crazy when we applied the proprietary system you’re learning about here today.

You might already be using Instagram to get traffic to your store but I guarantee that you’re not using it like this.

I’m talking about using Instagram to:

  • Drive 100% free traffic to your store
  • Build an email list of people that you can sell to over and over again
  • Grow a huge international community of people who love your work and spread the word about what you do
  • Generate consistent sales and income from a business you love

Like most Etsy sellers and makers,

You've probably spent a ton of time, money, and energy trying to build your customer base

with online strategies like: Google Adwords, Facebook Ads, SEO, Blogging, Facebook Fan Pages, or word of mouth

There’s nothing wrong with this. It’s tons better than just sitting back and hoping that someone will find your store by chance.

If you are independently wealthy and have tons of cash to throw at the wind and see which one of those works, then by all means, go for it! You will likely be able to make a profit from them…someday.

But if you’re like most makers and living in the real world with bills and commitments, you’ll find that using Instagram the InstaBuzz way will grow your following and more importantly, grow your sales faster than anything else out there. Bar none.

Wondering why Instagram is the key?

Well, the results speak for themselves…

And as an Etsy seller and maker, it’s important that you don’t waste any time trying to chase a goose that will never lay a golden egg.

You have to focus only on what works and get rid of the rest.

It’s called a growth lever and having too many of these in your business could spell disaster. It means that you are trying too many things, instead of focusing on a few things that work really well.

Here’s why Instagram is hands down the best growth lever for you to focus on:

  • Instagram followers are 57X more engaged than Facebook followers and 120X more engaged than Twitter followers!
  • 60% of Instagram users log on every single day. This means they see your posts much more often than on any other platform.
  • They are online shoppers: Over 33% of Instagram users have used their mobile phone to buy stuff online. So, this makes them almost 2X more likely to make a purchase from you than Facebook followers or anyone else.

There is something you need to be aware of though, there are over 600 Million active users on Instagram. This means that there are plenty of customers there for you. But the longer you wait to get started the smaller your piece of the pie will be.

“This course was a revelation to be. I was able to look into things which I have been doing for nearly two years since I started IG for ThePaperblooms; things that are somewhat lacking especially on the quality of posts.

I remembered the time when I have noticed that I'm getting no more than 15 likes in every post. Then I changed the way I shoot it. Eventually, things changed. But this week's lesson took me to another level, and I can see the result immediately with my last six IG posts soon after the lessons.

You guys are amazing”.

- Gerry Rosales, ThePaperBlooms (Boot Camp Participant)

"I learned SO MUCH about using Instagram as part of my overall content marketing strategy. There were so many little takeaways that I truly believe will help me capitalize on the community building aspects of Instagram and generate web-traffic & sales

My biggest takeaway was that I wasn't using the true power of Instagram; since taking the course I am being more strategic in my content, using the amazing link tool suggested, and focusing more on community-building.

I loved the focus on community-building. I previously purchased other Instagram courses that focus on gaining followers. Those strategies were helpful but took all the fun out of Instagram. InstaBuzz reminded why I love Instagram so much: the social aspects!

If you're looking for quick, easy, and sleazy, this is not the course for you. If you're truly interested in creating a community around your brand that will lead to a loyal, engaged following, then InstaBuzz is the course for you!"

- Carlie Dayle, Cajun in Cali


Sitting in my office,seeing results like these roll in, I literally couldn’t help it any longer.

I knew that I couldn’t help as many makers as I wanted to, while being chained to a desk. So I broke free and never looked back at the 9-5.

And that is when InstaBuzz 2.0 was born…

Stop hoping that someone will find your Etsy store and start getting visitors there on purpose already and turn them into buyers with InstaBuzz 2.0!

Don’t spend another minute trying stuff that might work, and start putting a proven system to work for you.

Remember it’s the same system that we’ve used to grow our own tribe at Maker Academy to over 23,000 and counting and it’s the same system that’s been used to get over 500,000 followers in under 6 months for makers and Etsy sellers like you.

By now you are probably wondering just how much InstaBuzz 2.0 will cost you.

If you look around at what the so called Instagram gurus are charging for online video lessons that don’t come close to providing as much as you will get with InstaBuzz, you could easily find yourself paying $2000+ for general information that will only leave you with more questions than answers.

Trust me, I’ve been there!

If you were to hire a reputable firm to build your following for you, you would find that most of them will charge you a flat monthly rate of at least $1000 just to manage the account and as much as $5 per new follower they get you.

So to get your first (or next) 1000 Instagram followers you would easily pay them at least $6000, and the quality of followers you would get wouldn’t even come close to the quality that you will get when you use the proprietary InstaBuzz 2.0 system.

Remember, it was designed specifically for Etsy sellers and makers like you.

So you can see, when you put it into perspective, I could easily charge $3000 for access to InstaBuzz 2.0 and it would be a great deal.

But don’t worry. You won’t pay anywhere close to that when you join today on this special page.

Actually, for roughly the cost of dinner and a movie you can have access to the entire InstaBuzz system today!

You see, from one entrepreneur to another I can’t stand the thought of someone not being able to build the business they deserve.

So even though this program would be a steal at even half of what the gurus charge at $1000, and even though everyone who has ever taken one of our premium trainings thinks I should be charging at least $1000 for InstaBuzz 2.0…

For a very limited time and only if you are one of the next few people that take me up on this offer, you will get access to the entire InstaBuzz 2.0 system for only $297.

So press the big button below to get started.

Now I know what’s probably running through your head.

“Courtney, if this is as good as you say it is and it’s guaranteed to work for me, then why is it only $297?”.

Simple. At $297 it ensures that InstaBuzz 2.0 is well within reach of every maker who wants in, no matter what stage of business you’re in.

In fact, I’ll even allow you to pay it over time!.

For a limited time, you can get InstaBuzz 2.0 for only $149 today and $149 in 30 days from now. That’s enough time for you to hop into the member’s area and put things into practice and start seeing results, before you even make the full investment in InstaBuzz 2.0.

Remember though, this special offer is only available for the next few people that take me up on it because, as I’m sure you know, the more people that are in the program, the more server space the website requires, and the more support staff we need in order to make sure you get all of the personal attention you deserve to ensure your success.

So the cost to get InstaBuzz 2.0 will inevitably have to go up soon.

Look at it this way: you’ve probably spent much more than this on making inventory that didn’t sell like you thought it would and I’m sure that you’ve spent a ton of time reading blogs and trying to find something that works to get real buyers to your Etsy store anyway.

Why not cut all that out, and go with a proven system that is guaranteed to work for you?

I know how scary it can be to make the leap and invest in a program like this.

But remember, InstaBuzz 2.0 is the only system designed specifically for Etsy sellers and handmade store owners to drive real traffic and real buyers to your store using Instagram.

It’s the only system with a track record of over 23k followers in under 6 months and the only system designed by a real world, in the trenches, former Etsy corporate insider in charge of store owner success.

I’m so confident that InstaBuzz 2.0 will work for you that I’m giving you my 60 day get clients guarantee. If within 60 days you are not getting the results you want and your Instagram following is not growing like it should, my team and I will work with you directly to get you on track. If you still are not getting results, then we’ll happily refund every penny. No hard feelings, no hassles.

I’m taking on all of the risk, so that you have nothing to lose and only the success you deserve to gain.

When you complete your order and log in to the member’s area you will have instant access to the entire InstaBuzz 2.0 system immediately so you can work at your own pace.

You can dive right in and start putting the system to work for you in just minutes from now!

Frequently Asked Questions

Will Instagram work for my products?
This is a question that we get all the time. I can tell you that I’ve seen this system work for even some of the most obscure products you could imagine. I’ve even seen it work to sell multiple 6 figures worth of ceramic dog bowls. No matter what your product is it’s been sold using this system, with much success. If you ever have any doubts about how to adapt it for your particular products, our support staff is here to help you every step of the way.
I’ve heard that I have to post a lot to be successful on Instagram. Will I have to spend a ton of time doing this?
The one thing none of us can make more of is time, so I’ve designed this system to be as time friendly as possible. Don’t worry, I know you don’t have hours and hours to spend on social media so I would never ask you to do that. You can work InstaBuzz 2.0 in only minutes a day, and I’ll even show you how to automate your workflow so that you can set it and forget it. Some of our most successful students even started out doing this while still working a “day job” and worked the InstaBuzz 2.0 system on coffee breaks or while commuting to and from work.
Do I need to spend a lot of money on advertising?
No, No, NOOOOOO! You actually won’t spend a single penny on advertising. InstaBuzz is centered around how to build your following organically, using methods that are 100% free. You will never be asked to buy a single ad on Instagram or elsewhere.
I’m brand new to Instagram (or I don’t have many followers) won’t everyone just follow the big influencers instead of me?
This seems logical, but it’s actually not the case at all. Influencers are great because they’re like the pioneers of your niche. They have figured out what works to build a following, and using the proprietary InstaBuzz 2.0 strategies, you can make their followers, your followers.
I’ve heard about Instagram for a while now and I’ve seen some huge accounts, am I too late?
Instagram is the hottest platform and that’s not going to change anytime soon. Without getting into all of the techy details, Instagram offers some unique features that simply can’t be found on Snapchat, Pinterest, Facebook, or anywhere else. Also, it’s still very new and its brightest days are ahead. By starting now, as in today, you will be like the first gold prospectors making it to California during the goldrush. The goldmine is there for the taking so stake your claim. The longer you wait, the more likely you are to be the late comer to the party, fighting for the few nuggets left. Remember once you stake your claim and build your following on Instagram, it’s yours forever.
