The Simplest Way to Authentically Attract Dream Clients and Build a Business You LOVE with Instagram…

Ready to attract the kind of clients who pre-book their appointments, happily pay you what you deserve, and who want the services you love doing?

 ...without feeling overwhelmed or turning Instagram into a 2nd job?

Do you feel like your business is at a stand still? But you’re either too overwhelmed or uninspired to know where to start?

You know you want to fill your days with dream clients who value you and your time and pay those premium prices...but instead you’re...

NOT BOOKED

You know other stylists are getting clients from Instagram...but you have no idea how to grow YOUR following and turn followers into actual paying clients

You’ve tried using Instagram to promote your work, but nothing seems to be working for you and it’s super frustrating

You’re struggling to fill the gaps in your days and so you’re taking on clients and services that you don’t love and in return you’re dreading going to the salon some days

NOT MAKING ENOUGH MONEY

You’re stressed out, burnt out, and not making enough money. You want to raise your prices and make more...but you’re afraid your clients will leave.

You want to feel excited to do hair, but you’re not exactly thrilled with the clients you’re serving or the services you’re doing… and because of that, you don’t know how to promote your work because you don’t even enjoy what you’re doing

FEELING STUCK AND OVERWHELMED

Life at the salon is already stressful with all the extra sanitizing practices and booking regulations to follow...Instagram feels like another full-time job on top of what you’re already doing!

You’re overwhelmed with all there is to do with Instagram; from when to post, to how to take pictures, how to write engaging captions, how to attract real followers and turn them into actual clients, etc.

You are so overwhelmed with where to start that you feel uninspired to even start to begin with.

You can walk into the salon each day, feeling excited to do hair because you know you’ve got a calendar full of clients you absolutely LOVE working with (and they happily pay you premium prices for your work)

You can be booked out for months in advance and have a waitlist of dream clients who can’t wait to book an appointment with you

You have clients walking in, handing you their iPhone with YOUR Instagram page pulled up, showing you your own work as their inspiration pic

You can confidently raise your prices because you’re already booked out 2-3 months in advance. Clients want YOU and YOUR work and are willing to pay for it.

You can say no to clients that don’t fill your cup or value your time or work and you can turn down services that you don’t like doing.

You can decide you want Saturdays off...or only work 3 days a week...and still make just as much (if not more) money than when you were working 5 days a week

And what if all of this was possible just by using a simple, proven strategy for building a business you love from Instagram?

ENROLL IN RISE SOCIAL ACADEMY

How would it change your life if you could be making more money doing what you love?

Would you take a Saturday off every month?  

Or decide you’re not working Saturdays at the salon AT ALL?  

Imagine what it would be like to make the same amount of money and work 3 days instead of 5…  

Or even to make MORE money...even though you’re working less.  

I know, I know...it doesn’t seem possible.  

I didn’t believe it either until it happened to me.

I struggled as a hairstylist. I was either bored in the salon, with no clients to work with...or I was working my butt off for clients who didn’t appreciate the value of what I did.

I was only making $152.50 a week…

I was sacrificing so much for so little…And I knew I couldn’t keep doing that.

So I started studying how other hairstylists were growing their businesses on Instagram…

I started testing. Failing. Making embarrassing mistakes. And failing again.

Until I finally figured it out.

I’ll never forget the first client I got from Instagram.

She brought in pics from MY page as inspiration!

I was shocked! But I knew I was onto something…

So I kept going.

I started making more money. Clients started coming to me. My Instagram following started to grow. 

And in just a couple years, I had increased my income to the point where I was making over $1,000 a day in the salon.

That’s when I knew that I couldn’t keep this to myself...Instagram changed my life.

And now...it’s your turn. 

This is exactly why I created RISE Social Academy...

to take you from stressed out, uninspired, not booked, and not loving your job....to booked out for months in advance doing hair you love all while spending less than 30 mins a day on your Instagram.

I’ve done all the work for you...made all the mistakes so you don’t have to...and failed so you can learn from me.

That could truly be your life...because built into RISE Social Academy are the exact steps you need to get there.

Jennifer Kerr @girlgonebronde

“I purchased RISE Social Academy because I felt like there was something I was missing about Instagram that I couldn't figure out!

Most of my new clients this past month have all been through Instagram!  

It's so exciting to hear them say, "I found you with "this" hashtag and all your work looked amazing".  

I'm shocked by how many people use Instagram to find their hairstylists! I feel so confident using Instagram after this program as well as a business person!”

Hullema Reddick @hstylze

I sold nearly $15,000 worth of retail products throughout the pandemic while my salon was completely shut down because I’d been using the framework to promote myself and my salon on Instagram using the RISE Social Academy system.

It has been such a great investment!”

Ashlee Cole @ashleec615 

“I felt lost when it came to Instagram. I follow tons of hairstylists and they had very professional looking pages and as much as I tried I was missing something.

RSA filled in the holes for me! After the first month, I gained over 150 new followers and I book a new color client every week!

I am way more confident in myself and my business after taking RISE Social Academy! I feel it's helped motivate me to be better in many different areas of my business. I know I'm on my way to achieving my ultimate goal!”

Elise Carter @eliseccarter

“As a busy mom of two, trying to continue to grow my business, Rise Social Academy was exactly what I needed!

I didn’t have time to research and master Instagram on my own... and then I found RISE Social Academy! Everything I needed to learn was instantly at my fingertips. No researching, no failed attempts on my own, and no wasted time.

As a result, I have transformed my Instagram, grown my following and clientele and most importantly, I haven’t taken time away from my baby boys. Thank you Jamie!”

What is RISE Social Academy?

RISE Social Academy is the only proven step-by-step online program that teaches hairstylists exactly how to share what they do on Instagram so that they can attract more of the right kind of clients and build a business they truly love without sacrificing their sanity!

Inside the program, I am going to walk you through step by step everything you need to know about how to get more high-paying clients with Instagram. I am teaching the strategies that have taken me years of trial and error to figure out and I don't hold anything back. I’ve made every mistake in the book so you don’t have to. I share everything that works (and doesn't) work with you.

I’m basically like your new social media strategist and you’re handing all the research and hard stuff over to me! It’s my job to know what’s working with Instagram and I always keep my students the most up to date! If something is working in my business or with my page, my students are always the first to know!

And the best part is, I don't leave you hanging! With the program, you get support and accountability through our private members-only Facebook group where my team answers your questions!

How to Build Your Instagram Foundation for Success

MODULE 01:

FOUNDATION


Having a strong foundation is what leads to success on Instagram and without it, you most likely won't see the growth you're looking for in your business.

First, we are going to define WHY you are using Instagram in the first place and start by setting a plan of action and goals so that you start moving (and only growing) in the right direction.

Then we are going to dissect exactly who you are talking to so that when your dream client or customer lands on your page or sees your content, they first fall in love with you, click the follow button, and HAVE to work with you.

Lastly, we're going to design your unique brand and what you uniquely specialize in so that you stand out from every other stylist or salon out there.

Lessons Inside:

  • 1.1 Why are You Using Instagram?

BONUS #1: MINI TRAINING: How to create content when you have nothing to post ($197 value)

Have you ever found yourself saying, “What do I post today?

It can feel overwhelming trying to post on Instagram when you don’t have ANY photos you love and the clients you currently have, aren’t the type of hair you want to do.   

I’m going to share three techniques I use to gain TONS of content that allows me to gather months (even years) worth of content in just a few hours!

BONUS #2: MINI TRAINING: How to set and raise your prices to make more while working less ($197 value)

Harley went from scared she would lose clients... to getting 10 new inquiries a week from Instagram!

"Joining RISE Social Academy was honestly one of the best investments I have ever made in my business.  

In 2017, I left my commission salon to become a suite owner. I was so scared that I would lose clients, not be able to find new ones, and ultimately, not be successful.  

But I was determined to make it work and I knew if I put in hard work and effort into my Instagram that I would see results. And guess what, I did!  

In fact, my very first day in my new suite I made over $1,000! I was blown away because all the clients I had that day came from Instagram! I had NEVER made money like that in my commission salon and even better, now I had clients in my chair that I actually wanted.  

Fast forward to today, I have built a full clientele solely from Instagram - I don't do any other advertising because I don't need to.  

I get about 10 inquiries per week from my Instagram page and have anywhere from 3-5 new clients that found me on Instagram come see me every week.  

Rise Social Academy not only getting my dream clients in my chair, but they are wanting services I love to do! The best part is, they are bringing in my Instagram photos as inspiration for their own hair.  

I have been able to raise my prices twice in the past 18 months and now, I only work 4 days a week. I am making more money, working less, and getting to travel more than ever.  

The opportunities in this industry are endless and with a tool like Instagram plus advice and strategies from Rise Social Academy, my business is thriving!"  

- Harley Chapman @harleydoeshair_ 4,761 followers and counting  

These hairstylists are just like you... and are now working with Dream Clients who love their work

Michelle went from feeling intimidated by social media...to attracting a loyal clientele who loved her work:

“I had resisted social media for long enough because I found it incredibly intimidating. I mean how could I possibly put out the types of images I was seeing other stylists do when I had no strategy in place?  

Jamie’s teaching format is so thorough and easy to follow. Learning ways to make my work look more professional has actually made social media fun rather than daunting.  

I’ve increased my following, but more importantly, my clientele. I joined Rise Social Academy when I came back to work after a year long leave and have gained a lot of my clientele back as well as new clients all thanks to the program.

Rise Social Academy is an essential educational tool for any stylist who wants to succeed.” 

- Michelle Pasterski @michelledoesgoodhair  

Jaime got 7 new clients in one month from Instagram all while doubling her following and engagement!

Emily moved to a new town and is consistently booked out 4-5 weeks out!

Myam gained 250 new followers and was able to start only accepting services she wants to specialize in!

Chandler was able to get booked out months in advanced with clients he loves!

30 DAY MONEY BACK GUARANTEE

Our Risk-Free Refund Policy

Nothing is worse than investing in your business to find out it wasn't that great of an investment after all.

Trust me, I've been there before and it's not fun which is why I want to make sure that you feel like this is the BEST investment you've ever made in your business!

Here's how our 30-Day Money Back Guarantee works:

If you can show us you did the work (up to module 3) and are unhappy with the program for any reason, let us know within 30 days of purchase and we’ll give you a full refund!

We've had thousands of students go through RISE Social Academy in the past 6 years and we're proud to say that we have under a 1% refund rate (the average in the online course industry is 15%).

I feel confident that this will be one of the best investments you'll make in your business, but I want to make sure YOU feel that too and if for some reason it's not, just let us know within 30 days and you'll get all of your money back!

I want to make sure that you're investing in the right education for your business which is why we've made it risk free for you with this refund policy.

My goal is to help you grow your business and I want to cheer you on along the way!  

I know it can feel overwhelming with all there is to do on Instagram to be "successful"... I get it, I've been there too.  

But after growing my own business and helping thousands of stylists grow theirs, I know the thing that separates "successful" stylists against the ones that are not is having a strategy in place and sticking with it.  

Without a strategy, you're just aimlessly using Instagram wondering why it's not working for you the way you see it working for everyone else.  

I went from making $152.50 a week (including tips) to making easily over $1000 a day working in the salon.  

I went from begging people to be my clients to people waiting months to get on my schedule.  

I went from a couple hundred followers to an amazing tribe of over 190k hairstylists who I get to impact + inspire through my page everyday.  

Whether you're trying to grow your clientele, you want to go into education and get noticed by brands, or you just want to be able to create your dream schedule filled with dream clients... this is the next step for you.  

I want to be a part of your journey cheering you along each and every step!

Kaila Went from Feeling Lost, Incapable, and Unworthy of Success...to Making More Than She Ever Has in Her 10 Years Doing Hair

“About a year ago I was ready to walk away from my career as a hairstylist. I thought I was lost, incapable and unworthy of success.

Today I am making more than I’ve ever made in my 10 years being in the industry and the best part is - I know that I’m not maxed out, I can literally make as much as I want to, provided I put in the work.

I went from paying for part time rent, but only being booked half of that, to renting 100% on my own, downtown in my city and being booked 1.5-2 months with DREAM CLIENTS.

I’m absolutely mind blown.

I took a leap of faith & I signed up for this program.

I started to believe in myself.

I didn’t let my limiting beliefs stop me.

Thank you Jamie & Mark for the work you both do to make this program & support group what it is and especially thank you to everyone in RISE Social Academy!"

“Since joining RISE Social Academy, my annual income has increased thanks to more clients, raising my prices and selling more retail products.”

"In the salon where I work (as a commission stylist and color director), the idea of marketing was word of mouth and yelp reviews. It worked ok, but when I saw Instagram take off, I knew it was time to step up my game.  

The results have been tremendous.  

We get so many inquiries from Instagram that we’ve added an Instagram button to our booking system, just to track it!  

Instagram has helped me build a dream clientele within months.  

I was even nominated by a company to be the guest artist on stage. I didn’t apply – THEY found me on Instagram. This wouldn’t have happened without RISE Social Academy.  

And there’s more…  

In our salon, you have to hit certain benchmarks in order to get a level jump.  

Since joining RISE Social Academy, I’ve gone up a level 3 times – increasing my annual income with over $30,000.00 – thanks to more clients, raising my prices, and having more opportunities for retail sales.  

With those numbers, you can clearly see that RISE Social Academy is priceless.  

I tell any stylist they have to do RISE Social Academy, no matter what.  

You’ll see a huge difference in your business, like growing a dream clientele, becoming an educator and getting noticed by big hair companies and hair shows.  

Even if you don’t get to it right now, enroll just to have it in your back pocket – so you can move your business forward when you’re ready!"

How Kimberly went from feeling lost with Instagram…to getting 6-8 new inquiries a week and raising her prices TWICE!

"Before doing RISE Social Academy, I felt lost – I was lacking the resources, support and knowledge to take my business to the next level.  

My Instagram page saw moderate growth, but with zero clue about hashtags, branding and photography, I wasn’t able to monetize my efforts.  

Enter RISE Social Academy.  

Inside, Jamie taught us branding + photography skills and gave us the insider’s scoop on how to take over Instagram: when + what to post, overall layout and how to make our page look cohesive and gorgeous – and above all… how to add value to our business for our clients. The results?

It started off immediately: after I posted my first high quality picture, inquiries started flooding in. I started receiving 3-5 inquires per week & now&I receive about 6-8 per week (I just got 5 yesterday!).  

Now I’m in the position, my schedule is fully booked with... as Jamie would say, "my dream clients"!  

Because of high demand, I’ve raised my prices twice this year and it is looking like I will be having another price increase later this year. I’m currently bringing 25% more money home than last year – allowing me to put more money toward my retirement & savings, as well as take vacations with family.  

My work is being featured on @modernsalon, @behindthechair and @pulpriothair, just to name a few. I have made the best connections through Instagram, it’s really an amazing platform! 

I really consider what I do as art, and to have that admired by the world is such a good feeling.  

I will forever be thankful to Jamie for sharing her knowledge with us!"

FAQs

I wanted to make sure I answered some of your most asked questions:

“I don’t know if RISE Social Academy is right for my business right now. What should I look for?”  

Well let me ask you a question: Are you happy with where your business is at right now? What about your clientele? Do you wish you had more clients or wish you were getting more inquiries from the type of client you actually want? Do you wish you could stand out in our industry and have more people notice you? Do you wish you could make more connections with brands and get more opportunities?  

If the answer is yes to ANY of those questions, then I would say that RISE Social Academy is absolutely right for your business right now.  

Here’s the thing, if you’re waiting to get more clients to start sharing more on Instagram, or if you’re waiting to make money before investing, or if you’re waiting to reach a certain number of followers, then you’re looking at it wrong.  

You can’t wait for those things to happen. By learning how to market yourself and investing in your business is how those results are going to happen. Not the other way around. 

"Would RISE Social Academy work for me if I'm still a cosmetology student or just became a stylist?"

Absolutely! The best part about going through a program like RISE Social Academy in the beginning of your career is that you’re starting out on the right path and setting yourself up for success from the start!

I wish I would've had a program like this in the beginning of my career, it would have saved me a lot of trial and error and I would've been able to build my clientele a LOT faster!

We have had so many cosmetology students go through the program and they said it was the best decision they could have made at the beginning of their career because it set them up for success and helped them create a career they loved from the beginning.

Cosmetology students like Karen who were able to not only start building a clientele while in beauty school by doing freelance wedding work, but also got job offers from 3 of her dream salons right out of school all because of her Instagram!

"I'm a salon owner, will RISE Social Academy work for me or is it more geared to the individual stylist?"  

The program is designed to work for you no matter what your goals are! In the beginning of the program, we'll have you map out your goals based on your business and how YOU want to grow.  

So no matter if you're a salon owner, stylist, student, freelancer, educator or wanting to go into education, this program will help you determine those goals and give you a plan moving forward!  

We have TONS of salon owners in the program who have had amazing results like Linda Deason, owner of @westcoasthairdesign, who said:  

"I knew nothing about Instagram when I started this class, but now about 9 months later, I’m turning away so much business! My salon is full of dream clients, I’m even double shifting a station, and my newest stylist is booked 3 weeks out! If I can manage Instagram, you can teach anyone!"  

The strategies can be applied for individual stylists as well as salon pages. Plus with the Facebook group you can ask for additional help and advice from Jamie + everyone else in the group who are in your same position.

"I live in a small town, will this program work for me?"  

This is a question we get asked a lot and I totally understand why!  

We actually have MANY students who live in small towns or more rural areas who have had amazing success with the program!

The best part about the program is that it's totally customizable to where you live and the type of clients you are trying to attract! It helps you set yourself apart from other stylists/salons in your area and helps you become the “go-to” stylist.  

In fact, one of our students, Jessica Wren @jessica_wren_, wrote us and shared this:  

Since starting RISE Social Academy, I have grown so much! Not only on Instagram but in my personal life and business! I mostly do the hair of my dream clients now (a lot of which found me on Instagram!)  

I live in a pretty small town. I thought it was going to be almost impossible to grow a clientele especially with the over saturation of salons in my area. But as I kept doing the program and consistently put out my content, I have gained over 400 followers in a year of starting RSA. That’s huge for me! I am also booking up 2-3 months in advance! Needless to say, if I can make it in a small town, so can you!!  

I am making triple per year compared to what I was making before I was a stylist. And... I’m working a little less!!  

I highly recommend you sign up for RSA if you get the chance. It could just change your career!”  

You can absolutely use Instagram as a way to grow your business and become the “go-to” stylist in your area! 

"How do I know this will work for me like the other students? These results seem too good to be true."  

Legally we can't say that the results are typical. Obviously those students put in the work and they saw results after implementing the strategies inside the program. But I do know that if you put in the work, implement the strategies, and don't give up, you will see results.  

It takes time, I'm not going to say it happens over night, it definitely didn't happen for me that way, but after staying with it and working at it, my business transformed.

Throughout the last 5 years of offering RISE Social Academy, we've gotten lots of feedback and testimonials, but it's way too much to share on this page, so we compiled some more stories from our members on this page.

Once you read through some of those stories, I have a feeling you might find one similar to yours.

Plus we also have the 30 day money back guarantee where if you show us you did the work up to Module 3 and aren't happy with your results or the program, we give you your money back! (In the past 5 years of offering the program, we have under a 1% refund rate and the average in the online course industry is 15%).

We also have thousands of students who have gotten amazing results from the program, so we feel confident offering that 30 day money back guarantee :)

“I’m so busy with my life and job, that I feel like I just don’t have the time right now. How much time is this going to take?”  

I notice that a lot of times, us hairstylists spend so much time working IN our business and not ON our business OR we get so caught up with the rest of our lives (kids, husband, hobbies, etc.) that we don’t pay a ton of attention to the business side.  

If you could set aside 15 mins a day or even an hour a week to put into learning about marketing and then actually marketing your business, I guarantee you would see massive results! I like this phrase: Knowledge without implementation is NOTHING. You have to put in the work to see results.  

The best thing about RISE Social Academy is that it would only take a small chunk of time each week to be learning and then implementing in your business. That’s why I threw in the extra bonus Get Started QUICK Guide + Calendar and created a whole video dedicated to showing you how to organize your Instagram schedule so that you're only spending 15-30 mins a day working on Instagram.  

The best part is, because it is all laid out for you with a plan, you wouldn’t be wasting time trying to figure out what to learn next and then figuring out how to best implement it. I did aaaaall that hard work for you. Plus you can learn according to your OWN schedule, no need to take a whole day off to go to an in-salon class + add in travel time. You can literally watch the videos at 3am if you wanted to. Whatever works best for YOU! 

“What is the difference between RISE Social Academy and your membership The Social Suite?”  

I have gotten asked this question quite a bit since I launched The Social Suite. In fact, I created an entire page to explain the difference of the two: 

“Can I learn this on YouTube, Google, or Pinterest?”  

You could probably search the internet for a DIY version of how to use Instagram to grow your business. But you will most likely end up spending waaay more time searching for the right kind of strategies that work for our industry, testing them out, figuring out what works best, then piecing them together to form your DIY version.

With RISE Social Academy, I’ve done all that work for you. I’ve figured out what works best for our industry and I’m going to walk you step by step through everything, so you don’t end up with a strategy filled with holes or gaps.

Remember time is money and if you’re spending all this time trying to piece everything together yourself, you will have spent way more in the long run and you may end up with a final product that isn’t as well rounded or effective.  

“What if I don’t like the program? Is there a guarantee?”  

The best thing about RISE Social Academy is that we have a 30 day 100% money back guarantee. If you’re not satisfied, I’m not satisfied! If you’re anything like me, you can’t stand spending money on your business and not seeing the results.

RISE Social Academy has a proven track-record for creating results like business growth, new client inquiries and attracting amazing opportunities, but you might find that (for some reason) it’s not for you. If you can show you did the work (up to module 3) and are unhappy with the program for any reason, let me know within 30 days of purchase and I’ll give you a full refund.  

I can truly stand behind RISE Social Academy because we have had thousands of students go through the course and they have had insane results, so I know it works!  

I hope that helped answer some of your questions, but if you have another one I didn’t cover, feel free to chat with us here or shoot us an email to support@jamiedana.com and we will make sure you get it answered!
