About Me

Hello! I'm Anjuli,

An Instagram Expert and Coach.

Are you eager to expand your Instagram presence, cultivate meaningful connections, and turn your followers into devoted customers? I’m here to help you achieve those goals without the fake hype or unnecessary stress. Let’s work together to increase your Instagram following by 10x, authentically and effectively.

Helping you achieve your Instagram goals is my ultimate joy.​

But let me take you back to where it all began. In 2019, I was running a digital marketing agency and had created a Facebook Group to build a community of entrepreneurs, solopreneurs, small business owners, creators, and freelancers. It was a safe space where we shared our challenges and learned from each other. ​

As the main moderator, I initiated discussions around several topics, and every time I brought up the topic of Instagram and growing a following, I got the most engagement and questions. That’s when I knew I had to dive deeper into the world of Instagram.​

I was a newbie to Instagram.

For a long time, I created useful content and posted consistently, but hardly anyone noticed it, engaged with, or liked it.

I got desperate and tried all the ‘hacks’ out there, watched countless YouTube Videos, wasted many hours on information from online gurus.

I tried ‘follow / unfollow’ method. I joined Instagram growth ‘pods’ etc.  Heck I even got banned twice by Instagram because my activities were deemed ‘suspicious’ by Instagram algorithms that track all ‘spammy’ and ‘bot’ activities.

I would post every day like my life depended on it and then would keep checking my phone to see how many likes or comments I got.

  • I got nothing in return and ended up building a ghost following of folks who didn’t care about me and who didn’t mean a thing to me.

I started to feel ‘deflated’ and began to lose interest in Instagram.

Until recently.

When I started to observe the system that those I idolized as successful Instagrammers were following. After months of pouring into studying them, I finally cracked the code to their success and came up with my own 6 Cs to Success Framework to help you achieve the same level of success on Instagram. 

Within a few months of learning, experimenting, and applying the 6 Cs framework, I saw a remarkable difference in my own account growth and above all my ‘mental well-being’.

Now I was doing Instagram without

  • constantly checking how many people have liked or followed me.
  • getting overwhelmed about ‘what content to post’ or feeling anxious about creating daily posts.

I felt inspired to share my best with the world.

My only competition- my last content post. I wanted to do better each time I created a post and make it better than my last post.

There is a certain joy in raising the bar for yourself each time.

There is a joy when you make actual connections with real people out there on Instagram who are doing such wonderful and amazing work.

It feels great to be on the other side of the table – of being an active creator and not a passive consumer of other’s content.

I flipped my C2C ratio… yes Consume to Create ratio. and now I was creating more and consuming less.

I decided to share my knowledge and skills with my tribe.

I invited people from my Facebook Group to join me for weekly sessions where I taught them how to use Instagram effectively. Five people agreed to test me out, and for 13 consecutive Sundays, we went on a collective learning journey.​

​As we applied our learnings to the practical world of Instagram, we saw results not just for me, but also for my initial students. That’s how I ended up creating my first online course on Instagram Influence Mastery. So far, more than 800 people have benefited from my foundation course.

I was encouraged to help more people, so I decided to launch my course on Udemy.


I was encouraged to help more and more people through my effort. I decided to launch my course on Udemy which is the biggest marketplace for e-learning. Today, more than 110+ students have enrolled in the course on Udemy from 27 countries speaking 7 global languages! I am super pumped to have touched the lives of so many people across the world from my bedroom!

I would love to invite you into my world and share with you all that I know to help you achieve your goals with Instagram!

How I started on the Digital Marketing Track

I started my journey into the digital world in 2015, after a tough period in my life. I lost my job as a consultant at a fashion industry training center in Singapore and broke my metatarsal, leaving me confined to a cast, crutches, and a wheelchair for eight months.​

​I couldn’t understand why I was asked to leave, especially since I had shown immense commitment and drive, going to work with crutches, cast, and wheelchair. I was left seeking a resolution, and it was deeply painful. I needed validation and approval that it was not my fault, and I needed to prove my worth to the world.

​Instead of dwelling on negative emotions, I decided to focus on a positive goal: redesigning my old training and consulting practice website. I started looking for web developers to help me with the task, but I found that although they were good tech people, I didn’t get great inputs on brand presence, design, look and feel, copy, etc. I wanted a whole solution that would cover strategic elements, not just technical input.​

​My husband recommended me to Debashish Purul, who stood out among all the web designers and developers I spoke to. He didn’t try to sell me anything. Instead, he spent time understanding my needs and expectations and then coached me. He said, “You probably cannot afford me at this point, but if you are willing to put in the effort, you can learn to build your own website. I will guide you on how to. And yes, you don’t need to know how to code.“​

​That set me on a journey to learn all about building websites and got me deeply interested in all things digital. I started volunteering for Girls in Tech and contributed an article on “How I Built my First WordPress Website Without Any Coding” as my contribution to the community. My own website is my own creation from end to end, a self-testimonial! Not only that, I did several projects for SMEs to help them leverage the power of digital marketing to get leads and acquire customers. ​
