hey there! I'm Siân

Instagram expert, social media consultant and research geek.  It’s nice to virtually meet you.

I’m passionate about helping female entrepreneurs grow their Instagram accounts in an authentic, heart-led way.
 

I’m a British expat living in the beautiful Austrian city of Vienna (officially the best place to live in the world, fact fans) and my adventures as an expat are exactly what got me started out on my own Instagram journey.

‘With Sian’s guidance I doubled my followers in a short amount of time’

My Instagram story starts…with the creation of Teach Investigate Play way back in 2017 – at least that feels like a long time ago by today’s standards – am I right?

I was living in Australia at the time and had just had my second child.

I didn’t really get it at first. Did I need to take selfies? Gym snaps? Or flay-lays of my lunch? That wasn’t really me.

I wanted to share my parenting adventures, partly. I wanted to try and find a like-minded community who really ‘got’ who I was. I wanted to stop feeling so lonely and isolated.

Could a true community really be possible in a world of vanity metrics and instant ego gratification? The answer is, YES, ABSOLUTELY!

If you're thinking, yep this is great Sian but can't anyone grow an Instagram account?

Well yes, they can but there’s a right way and a wrong way.  I’m a certified research geek, confident that my skills and experience can help you to grow your own amazing community.

  • I worked in media research for years, helping big brands like Boots, M&S, The Royal Mail and Land Rover understand their customers.
  • I use my expertise as a qualified teacher to break down essential information in a step-by-step way.
  • I built @teach.investigate.play from the ground up without resorting to the 'dark arts' of Instagram (read: paid followers, engagement pods and follow loops).
  • I've invested thousands learning from the best in the industry.

The beauty of having an online business is the fact I can help clients worldwide. From America to Australia, I have helped small business owners make the best out of their Instagram accounts. I want this for you too.

I train female entrepreneurs how to grow an authentic Instagram community without having to go through the hassle and anxiety of figuring out everything on their own

There are many mistakes that can easily be made when venturing into Instagram land.

The women I coach get to take the short-cut and learn how to do it right from the very beginning.

Owning a business is hard. There are so many balls to juggle. Social media is a whole new minefield that can take up valuable time and energy.

It’s easy to lose focus and get sucked in by vanity metrics and the likes gratification.  I help my clients side-step all of this madness and use Instagram the right way.

I truly believe that having an intentional, heart-led approach to Instagram is the key to success.

You need to be on social media. That’s just how it is now. 80% of people will research a brand on Instagram first before they even consider buying.* You need a presence and it needs to be good.
