Discover the Secret Method to Converting Instagram Users into Paying Customers in Just One Week...

Quickly growing your following, getting quality engagement and making consistent sales of your products and services with Instagram is easy - that is, if you follow my easy-to-implement strategies...

(Keep on scrollin' to learn more!)

You’ve been on Instagram awhile, you’re fed up, frustrated and about to break it off with the ‘Gram for good.

Let me guess:

  • You’re struggling to grow an engaged following (or any following for that matter!)
  • Your organic engagement is less than inspiring and you can't figure out what you're doing wrong
  • You have trouble posting consistently and feel overwhelmed by the idea of coming up with on-going content
  • When you do post, writing captions feels like an epic challenge (wtf are you supposed to say anyway?!)
  • It feels like Instagram is constantly changing and you don't know how to keep up
  • You’re completely confused and frustrated by the so-called algorithm
  • No matter what you do, you can't seem to convert any followers into sales

You’re spending hours on the app every day, doing “all the things.” Yet you STILL can’t grab the attention you crave so you can make the income you know you deserve!
What gives??

What if instead you had...

  • A proven strategy to build a following of raving fans in just a few minutes a day?
  • An easy method to come up with content and a posting schedule you can stick to?
  • Simple tactics and techniques to convert your following into a steady stream of paying customers?
  • A step-by-step roadmap to using Instagram to market your business and explode your sales?  

I made over $250,000 with Instagram last year, and I can show you how to do it, too.

My name is Alex Tooby, and I’m not some lucky Instagram 'influencer'. I’m a Instagram marketing expert (& online business strategist!), and I know all the tried-and-true strategies to help you build and sustain a successful, profitable business with Instagram.

Besides making $250k+ last year, Instagram has also allowed me to:

  • Quit my 9-to-5 in 2015 once and for all
  • Generate over $1,000,000 in revenue via the app 
  • Purchase two properties before the age of 31
  • Be featured in major publications such as Time, Business Insider & Cosmopolitan Magazine (May 2017 issue, baby!) 
  • Generate a consistent and steady flow of new, potential customers into my business every month
  • Scale businesses in both digital and e-commerce niches to 6 figures a year using Instagram
  • Help 1,000's of business owners and entrepreneurs 10x their sales, followers & email subscribers

Wanna know a secret? It. Was. EASY!

I didn't buy followers, use bots, or hire a 'growth service' to do it for me. I used my own strategy that puts my content in front of the right people, at the right time, which entices them to follow, visit my website and purchase my products.

1,000 TO 7,000 FOLLOWERS!

"You have helped me grow SO MUCH!! Every time I put your helpful tips to use, I grow more and more each day. When I took your first class I had less than 1k followers. Now I'm at 7k and growing quickly! You really have built something amazing!"




“Out of all the Instagram so called “experts” and people who ask a lot of money for their tips, I think YOU are really the best! I’m so glad I found you!




"Alex's course really helped me create an IG strategy that gets results. I've gained 5 new clients right after I started following her advice! The content in the courses are comprehensive, the strategies simple, and it's kept up to date. You learn about what's working now, not 5 years ago!"



It sounds simple, because it is.

And now, I’m handing over my step-by-step strategy to you, so you can use Instagram to build your business and grow your income, too!

For you to buy all of the elements of this program individually would cost you $2,347...

Hi, I'm Alex.Your Instagram strategist, marketing mentor & new biz bestie.

I've been where you are. I've been the hustler, building 'my dream' while working a 9-5. I've doubted my ability to succeed, feared the unknown of starting my own online business and failed countless times.

And yet I did it. After years of being unhappy in my job I eventually took the leap, left my 9-5, moved across the country and started working on the life I knew I was worthy of having. And I've never, ever looked back.

Instagram played a huge role in my success, but ultimately it came down to perfecting my product, putting in the work, following a proven strategy and whole-heartedly believing that I can, and deserve, to succeed. Now, I want to be the friend that helps you create the life and business of your dreams too!

It is possible to build a successful, thriving business with Instagram.

You deserve it. You are worthy. You can do this!







"I reached 20k! Thank you so much Alex Tooby for your awesome course. Since starting I've doubled my website site traffic and daily email sign-ups, I've connected with a much larger audience, got new clients, and luxury skincare companies have reached out to work together after finding me on IG. I can't wait to see what else is to come!"

- Natasha @theclearskinessentials


"Alex gives such clear and concise suggestions, tools and strategies to use for growth and impact! I’m so happy I signed up for this course, and I’m even more excited that she’s always updating it with new information for me to keep learning!"

But with The Instagram Ivy League and Alex’s continued help and support everything becomes a lot more manageable! You’re given all the tools to fix and elevate each little aspect of Instagram over time instead of just one blanket statement. I’ve been using Alex’s tips for years and I will continue to use them for the entirety of my online career!"




 "The Instagram Ivy League is a must whether you're a beginner or a seasoned IG user. I started following Alex because I was looking for a step by step to make sure I know everything I need to optimize my IG account and attract the right followers, and that is exactly what she provides! There is so much to know about Instagram - this is your place to learn it."

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I know Alex is the right Instagram coach for me?

What sets me apart from other "Instagram Gurus" is that my advice is practical, actionable and grounded in timeless marketing methods. I don’t TELL you what to do; I actually SHOW you, step-by-step (you literally get to look at my phone and follow along!) I educate you on WHY we're taking certain actions and keep you focused on what really matters - profitability over popularity.

I made a quarter of a million dollars on Instagram last year using the exact methods I’m going to teach you in the Instagram Ivy League so you can be confident this program is tried, true and it WORKS ;)

I'm already pretty comfortable with Instagram. Will I learn anything new in the Instagram Ivy League?

This program goes beyond elementary tactics like how to post or select hashtags. You’ll learn how to use Instagram as an effective marketing tool to funnel a constant flow of potential customers directly into your email list and convert them with an urgency-based flash sale. By the end of this course, you’ll feel confident in your skills as an internet marketer, not just an “instagrammer.”

What makes the Instagram Ivy League better than other IG courses?

The Instagram Ivy League is the only course you need to expand the reach of your business and generate more income. Everything you need to grow an engaged following, create amazing content, and make money with your Instagram account (plus all the things in between) is inside the Instagram Ivy League. I designed this course to be an all-in-one deep dive into building your business with Instagram so you wouldn’t need to supplement it with any other course or coaching program. By the end, you will feel extremely confident in your newfound abilities to market your business on Instagram, and you’ll know without a doubt that you didn’t waste your money on yet another online course.

Do I get support, a community or 1-on-1 access to Alex?

Yes! Your membership includes on-going support in and out of the program in the form of accountability check in's and email follow ups ensuring you're on track and not missing any important steps. 

You'll additionally receive access to a VIP Facebook Community where you can learn and grow from the help of current and past students.

*Note: the VIP Facebook Community is a bonus and not part of the program curriculum. Alex and the team are committed to monitoring the group but it is NOT a 1:1 coaching resource or 'support' group.

Will The Instagram Ivy League work for my business?

Do you sell a digital or physical product, or an online service? Then yes! The tips, tactics and strategies in this course are designed to be applied to online businesses looking to reach a global audience. The elite education you’ll get in The Instagram Ivy League will equip you with the tools needed to see results, regardless of what you sell.

How long will it take to complete The Instagram Ivy League?

The Instagram Ivy League has around 8.5 hours of video content. That said, I discourage you from watching it all at once. Each lesson contains actionable steps you can implement immediately. If you watch the tutorial, then take action -- which I highly recommend you do -- it could take a few weeks to absorb and apply all of the content.

Do I need to buy anything other than this course?

You will need a website in order to host your flash-sale in Phase 4! Other than that, no. While I may recommend a few things throughout the course, such as a content template or a premium version of a free tool, you don’t need to buy another thing to get tangible, positive results.

When does this program begin and end?

You can start The Instagram Ivy League as soon as you complete your purchase! From there you will have 12 months to access and absorb the entire program. I have provided a proposed competition calendar that if followed will take you through the program within 16 weeks. Having said that, this program is fully self-paced, so you don’t need to complete anything by a certain date. If you can start right away, amazing! If not, the content will be there when you're ready.

How come I only get 12 months of access?

The #1 reason? To keep you accountable! We've found that by limiting access to the program, students put more effort into completing everything start to finish. A dedicated student can watch and implement all the lessons (including hosting a flash-sale) in 4 months or less. This leaves 8 extra months to re-visit the entire program, specific lessons, implement the flash-sale framework multiple times and explore the bonuses. It additionally accounts for emergencies or unexpected calendar interruptions that may arise.

How does the payment plan work?

If you choose the payment plan, you will be charged $299 today, $299 in 30 days and $299 in 60 days.When your first payment processes, you will receive immediate access to Phase 1 & 2. After your second payment processes, you'll receive access to Phase 3 and and after your third and final payment you'll receive access to Phase 4 and the bonuses.

Do you have a refund policy?

Of course! You have 30 days to request a refund. If the program does not work for you I will happily give you a full refund. Please read the full policy here:

"Alex really helped me hone in and reach the right people. I really love that you don't have to have a million followers or a huge market to be able to benefit from her advice.

"The Instagram Ivy League was a great way for me to jump into a new platform and hit the ground running. Alex made it accessible and easy and I gained insight into what works and what doesn't. Can't thank her enough!"

This program is  for you if:

  • You sell a physical or digital product
  • You sell an online service that people can ‘add to cart’ and purchase without any involvement from you (ie sales call or manual processing)
  • You are willing to let go of the idea that more followers = more success
  • You are ready to be led by Alex and potentially try new ideas and strategies you haven’t tried before

This program is not  for you if:

  • You are just concerned about popularity
  • You have nothing to sell
  • You are not ready or willing to put in the work
  • You feel like you ‘know it all’, or have ’tried it all’ already


"The Instagram Ivy League is well structured, and provides detailed practical steps on how to use Instagram. It is obvious that Alex is willing to help you master Instagram and get the best results. Since taking the course, I have started making sales via Instagram! I highly recommend it!"




"I've really enjoyed the Ivy League and being part of the Facebook group. I had limited experience with Instagram, especially Stories and Reels, so learning lots of handy tips and techniques was useful. There was also help with photography which is so important for Instagram! I found the sessions on hashtags particularly helpful and I immediately saw results from following Alex's advice."




"The IG Ivy League helped me to better understand how to improve my account visibility. I had my account for ages and never got a customer until I found Alex. I absolutely love the program!"
