Just a year and a half ago when our little family was unemployed and at rock bottom, I went to Home Depot and bought a few supplies to create a new product that spread like crazy.
I had no idea it would be the beginning of a six figure empire, a business that could actually sustain our family, and a life where I feel creatively fulfilled every day.
80% of Instagram users follow a business on Instagram? 60% of users find new products on Instagram?
And that at least 30% of Instagram users have purchased a product they first discovered on Instagram?
And you know who’s getting those sales?
Good storytellers. And not just any kind of storytellers…good writers.
Because people have caught onto how important it is to have great images. So even when you do have great images nowadays, it’s hard to stand out.
But writing captions that create a community…it’s the secret that most people haven’t caught onto…yet.
The truth is this: Only a tiny percent of people are using captions to their fullest potential. It’s kinda too late to stand out based solely on your images on Instagram. But…writing well on Instagram is seriously in its infancy.
And this is a learnable skill and strategy. I’ve tested captions obsessively over the last two years, and I take you through every step of the way.

I know! Investing in your business is no small thing. And maybe you’ve been burned before.
But my growth in 2017 started with a scary investment. We were at rock bottom. We were jobless. I felt like I was crazy. But I had a vision. And I knew what I wanted. And I bet on myself. My best advice? Bet on yourself too.

I used to have only 1-2 comments per post, and now I’m up to 10-20. I’ve also gained about 50 new followers in just one week! I swear, Emma’s a miracle maker!

Emma’s new Captions that Gather course was the perfect bite-size course for me to change the way I write my Instagram captions to be more authentic, true, and engaging.

Emma carefully points out all the nuances of a great Insta caption–crafting the hook, the hero’s journey, the story structure, the narrator, and cutting out the clutter–without all the fluff! She gets straight to the point and really hones in on good story telling.
I had multiple “ah-ha” moments that have helped me get back to my roots and write intentionally. If you’re feeling stuck with Instagram and want a little pick-me-up, confidence booster that will get you well on your way to caption greatness, Emma’s course is just that!
I cannot recommend it enough!

Before I started this course I was really struggling with getting good authentic engagement on instagram.
It seemed like no matter what I tried, my instagram captions felt boring and too forced.
I decided to take CTG because I had seen amazing results with Emma's Instagram and if I could get that kind of result, it would be totally worth it. And it definitely was!
Before I was getting one or two comments per post, now I'm getting around 10-15 people commenting.
And not just commenting things like "pretty" or "I love this!"
I'm getting deep authentic comments that are building REAL relationships, which is number one to me! Thanks Emma!

Emma's course, Captions that Gather, is a game changer!
I love how she breaks down each part of a potential caption and gives you quick, but tangible tips to quickly begin using! She opened my eyes in a lot of ways on how to truly capture the attention of my audience without over-sharing or adding in un-needed fluff!
Before taking her course I was feeling burnt out and not sure what to share anymore, but now I am viewing writing captions in a whole new way and actually enjoy sitting down and planning out my content!
This course was super easy and quick to take, which is a huge bonus, and allows you to put what you learned into action immediately! I can't recommend it enough!
Wedding Photographer, Educator | @abbywallerphotography
If you would’ve asked me five years ago what my career plans were, I would’ve told you my goal was to write novels while my babes napped. It’s why I got an MFA in creative writing.
In the end, I started a business. A few months in, I had no idea what I had gotten myself into.
Turned out that about 90% of business is about marketing. Who knew. I always thought the people studying marketing in college seemed kinda slimeball-y. And my business wasn’t making a cent. It was a dark place for us. We felt stupid, hopeless, and we wondered if this would work.
But I just knew I could do this. So we put everything into my business and I finally got the right mentors I needed, and everything changed.
The money came. The growth came. The new followers, the new clients, the new students, the new opportunities, the new sales...they all came. In just over a year of making my first sales, I crushed the 6-figure barrier.
And when I stopped for a second to look around at my community, I realized I was building something much bigger.
I surrounded myself with savvy creatives and artists, ready to have a good, real impact on the world.
I do this stuff from my apartment in New York City. We get to build our life filled with what’s most important to us: love, freedom, creativity, travel, culture, art, good books, good conversation, good food, groundedness. We don’t have it all figured out, but we’re constantly working toward living and giving as our very best selves.
Is that something I could help you do too?
Hey! I’m so glad you asked. Because that means you’re thinking about letting me coach you with your writing and business.
I’m Emma Natter and I was honestly never interested in having a business. That’s why it’s kind of ironic that I’m now a business coach…but it’s not ironic that storytelling is at the heart of everything I do.
Do you want what you say to resonate?
Then this course is going to pay off for you easily.
For a coach? The whole course, this course costs less than one session for you.
For a photographer? That’s a fraction of a session.
For shop owners? That’s a few orders.
All of these can easily pay off the cost of your enrollment.
What I find a gain and again is that the money I invest into my business education comes back again and again. And this course is just that: an investment.
Goodness I get it, my friend. Maybe you’ve been burned by courses before, or you feel like you’re just throwing your money at the wall to see if anything sticks.
And honestly, the last thing I want you to do is invest your money into something that doesn’t pay off for you.
But if there’s one thing I know about business growth, is that when I choose the right teachers, whose message I truly resonate with, and invest in them and their products, I’m never disappointed.
Would you like to build a more loyal community? Would you like to find your clients and customers hiding so sweetly in the comments under your beautiful captions?
Would you like your message to stand strong and resonate with the people who need to hear it?
I’m super busy. How much time do I have to set aside for this?
This is definitely a go-at-your-own-pace kind of course. Some people will binge the whole thing and start implementing immediately. If that’s you, more power to you! But if you just don’t have time to front-load your work, that’s no problem! Just listen a piece at a time when you sit down to write a caption. Try and implement one principle. You’ll start to feel and see a difference with every change you make.
Would it be a problem if I bought now and dove into the course later?
Absolutely not! This is a go-at-your-own-pace course. So whenever your schedule lets up a little, you can dive in. This course is designed to give you more freedom and more value in your Instagram and community. Not to make you feel even more restricted by your to-do list. Whenever you’re ready and have a minute to bring a breath of fresh air into your account, Captions that Gather will be ready for you.
If I don’t have a business or product yet, can this still help me?
For sure! Building a community is one of the best things you can invest in doing right now while you figure out the product stuff. It’ll be the perfect place for you to do market research and product testing. I can’t overstate how true that last sentence is. And it’s totally doable on Instagram.
Right now is super busy! Do I have to stay on a certain timeline?
Absolutely not! You can watch the videos a little bit at a time, or you can binge the whole thing in a little less than two hours. You have lifetime access, so you can absolutely go at your own pace and listen and re-listen to all of the content as many times as would be useful for you!
How long do I have access to the course? Does it expire?
You’ll have lifetime access to this course. So that means that no one can wrangle your membership away from you! You’ll have this content available for years to come.
I’m a product-based business. Will this work for me?
Absolutely! The way business is going right now, every business needs to create more of a relationship with their customers. Loyalties to faceless brands are down more than ever. And it’s absolutely your time to step in and create a community of loyal customers and community-members.
I’m a service-based business. Will this work for me?
For sure! You’re working person-to-person, and that means that trust is more important than ever. In order to differentiate yourself, you can absolutely see growth by writing captions that truly create trust and community.
I’ve bought other courses about Instagram before and I’m worried that this is just another one. How can I be sure that this is different?
Well, let’s talk about what this course isn’t. It’s not a course designed to keep you on a social platform for hours every day that is sucking the life out of you. I will never tell you to engage with people just for the sake of growth. This is all about quality over quantity. Speaking your truth. Serving your people. So that you can do the work you truly love and also have a life. And honestly? I’ve seen a lot of the Instagram courses out there. And the ones written by good writers, talk about what they’re doing but they don’t talk about HOW. How to write with style, finesse, and more. The nitty-gritty. That’s something I can bring my college-level teaching into for ya.
