Authentic Online Marketing School

She was lost on the platform...

Three years ago, Jamie Bailey struggled to get her content seen on Instagram. While running a successful in-person practice with her husband, she was at a loss to make Instagram work for them.

When we first got on Instagram, it was me Googling everything. And there are so many opinions! But Google steals my time, and paying for coaching gave me my peace back! I knew our content was solid and that we could help people, but I didn’t know how to use the platform to draw followers.”

After meeting with Jamie, I quickly realized she doubted the power of sharing her real authentic life on the platform. “My life is boring, though, I literally just go to physical therapy and walk my dog!” She moaned.

But after putting the strategy to work, she started to notice a difference. Followers began flooding her inbox with “Me too” comments, conversations ensued, and she began building rapport and establishing relationships.

And today? Jamie and Chris of @expedition_marriage now have over 20K followers, hundreds of shares, skyrocketing engagement, and ALSO contracted a book deal – ALL ON INSTAGRAM.

“Ruthie taught us to show up on Instagram as who we are and to offer value. And our followers are here for what we have because she helped us show them what it is we’re really offering.”

What students are saying...

Amber Cullum, Podcaster

“Ruthie’s CAFE method taught me how to introduce a problem my reader might have and pose a solution through storytelling in a way that’s true to who I am but also speaks to the reader. I’m more confident in what I’m relating to the reader, in my own authentic voice.”

Jane DeLong, Author & Speaker

“Not only have I learned how to post content attracting my target followers, but I now have an email opt-in, welcome sequence, and a newsletter than feels authentic to me!”

This could be you.

Imagine the amount of time saved and profit created if you not only had consistent content on social, but powerhouse emails going out to your people regularly.

It's not a "far-out" vibe

it’s what happens when you finish Authentic Online Marketing School.

Identify your target audience

Before AOM School, I had a vague idea of how to communicate with my audience, struggling with clarity, focus, and over-thinking. AOM School provided me both tools and motivation for connecting well with my peeps. This was a great confidence booster and I’m so grateful for this community! ~Jennifer Sakata, Blogger & Speaker

Before AOMS, I didn't know who my audience was or how to reach them. During the training, I not only learned how to use Reels and stories, but I identified my audience, refined my message, grew followers, and increased engagement!
~Suzette Katapodes, Blogger & Caregiver Advocate

Having a solid content marketing plan is a game changer, one that attracts followers, generates email signups, and transitions into clients.

I get it! Other people make it look easy. But for you, it’s been a drag. You thought the hard part was going to be figuring out the tech, but as it turns out, that was only just the beginning. And now you feel like you must be missing something.

And you’re not alone...most marketers struggle with this.

And that's why YOU get to make sure you get it right...the FIRST time!

Bummed about slow Instagram and email growth?

Let’s face it–there’s nothing more frustrating than crafting a post, only to feel like you’re wasting time and never actually growing your audience. And there’s nothing more disheartening than gaining several new followers–only to see them unfollow later! Plus, you know you should be emailing consistently. Maybe you’ve even invested in a course.

And yet, it’s not quite working.

The problem? Graphics, content, and all forms of IG video often make achieving Instagram followers more trouble than it’s worth. click-worthy headlines. Writing content. Choosing an email provider. Checking open rates! It all feels like a bummer.

Start reaching your ideal audience.

It's time to to tell your content strategy woes to keep on truckin'.

I used to be completely lost on Instagram. I didn’t know how to attract followers or get engagement.

Frankly, I quit the platform THREE TIMES before succeeding. I felt like a dorky Jan in a sea of Marshas.

Instagram isn’t like any other social media platform. It has a format all its own.

And sometimes? It even shuts down (like that random day for 6 hours).

What’s more, I realized the magic is in combining email marketing with Instagram to not only cover the bases (like blackouts), but to solidify a marketing plan that delivers regular clients.

In fact, I do it all with a small following and a small list! (And make money.)

So…what if you could make both Instagram AND email marketing work for your business?
