Sick of guessing at Instagram?

After spending hours trying to get more followers and double taps for your acting career, are you tired of hearing crickets?

Yup, I totally get it.

It's frustrating. You feel like everyone has it figured out but you 'cause your follower numbers stay the same. And, Instagram's always changing!

Well, there's good news and bad news....


The Insta-Guessing game is a waste of time.

Instead of trying to figure out how Instagram can work for you, you should be working on your audition prep, training and doing what you really love - Acting.

After all, you're not a professional Instagram marketer.

You're an ACTOR.


I’ve completely figured Instagram out...

...and I’ve helped 1,000s of actors do the same.

Now, it's your turn!

Introducing InstaActor!

For actors who want to build an audience, make more connections and make an impact on Instagram

(without the Insta-headache)

"I always thought I was GREAT with social media until I met Heidi and she took my social media game to a whole new level. Within days she gave all my platforms a social media make over that allowed me to post with confidence. And then she did it AGAIN…with her Instagram stories training. Mind. Blown. As long as social media continues to change, I'll keep coming back to Heidi. She always has the latest and greatest -- and super easy tips for keeping it up with social media."

Hi...I’m Heidi Dean!

The social media strategist for actors and creator of InstaActor!

And I see you, my friend.

You run from your day job…to acting class.

When your #actorhustle is finally done, you plop down on the couch ready for some well-earned R&R until…

… realize “Oh 💩…I’ve gotta post something on Instagram”

You start scrolling through your photos, desperate for something that'll get more 💙 than your last post.

...58 minutes later, you’re finally putting the finishing touches on your caption, hitting publish, and adding hashtags (#OverIt).

But the double taps and comments don’t come pouring in like you hoped they would.

And 24 hours later…. it's INSTAGRAM groundhog day all.over.again.

Sound familiar?

Instagram was fun when you could post whatever you wanted (even wine nights out with the girls) but, now that it's part of your ‘actor marketing,’ it’s a big pain in the 🍑.

But, not anymore. I’ve created a simple system that helps you build your audience, make connections and make an impact on Instagram (even if you stink at taking photos)!

It's the same system that's helped Emmy Award-winners, Broadway stars, recording artists, directors, producers, filmmakers and actors just like you, go from feeling "crappy" to "happy" about Instagram.

If you're an actor who wants to finally conquer Instagram, InstaActor is your new best friend!

See you in class!


Here's What Folks Are Saying About Heidi's Courses....

Shannon Ames

When I started your course I was just around 2K followers on Instagram- I just hit 10,000. Plus I never run out of ideas to post anymore and I’m excited about it because they’re all the things I like so much! I haven’t had this much fun with social media…like ever. Just wanted to say THANK YOU!!

There is nobody better for social media training than Heidi Dean. Nobody. Plus, you will never meet a kinder human being on planet Earth.”

Joseph Narducci

Heidi transformed the way I view social media in my life. You took me from someone posting for myself alone to someone who was engaging his followers. I now know how to engage my audience in a way that invites interaction and also represents my best self. My followers practically doubled, and my confidence went through the roof. Your daily videos were so clear and the resources you gave out to us all are amazing. Your class has been one of the best investments in my acting career.”

Here's What Actors Are Saying About Heidi's Courses....

Ben Jacob

Heidi’s class energized my acting career! As a content creator, I am more confident, consistent, and aware of what steps and platforms to dominate for my sketches. Instagram and Youtube have become a part of my acting team and I have even gotten responses already 1 week after the class from casting directors for target shows!”

Ben Jacob

Heidi’s InstaActor Training was worth the investment and then some. I’ve paid for a couple of other IG trainings that weren’t nearly as personal or specific, and my number of followers tended to just sit stagnant. I’m so glad to be on the right track now. Heidi’s training is full of tips on how to be authentic and personal in growing your Instagram following in a way that will last. She also addresses technical questions on navigating Instagram itself, and is very generous with bonus suggestions for editing apps, taking great pictures and creative story ideas. The best part? She just genuinely cares about us performers. Thank you so much, Heidi!

Cara Scott, Actor and Voice Talent
Quincy Grace

I’m not going to lie, I thought I knew EVERYTHING about Instagram and how to get people to follow me, notice me, and  help my manager get my name and face out to the right people. Guess what, I don’t know everything, and Heidi does. This is the best thing my mom has ever done.”

Quincy Grace

Thanks to Heidi not only have I learned how to use social media to advance my acting career, but I have stopped being shy online and I’ve started to post things that I thought were impossible. I have acquired many more followers and I’m gaining strength in my acting career! The great thing about Heidi is that she's always a direct message away and she’ll never leave you hanging or guessing. She takes her classes seriously and establishes a connection with her students (unlike some people out there just out to get money from actors) Heidi actually cares about us! Thanks so much.

“Heidi Dean is an expert at Social Media Marketing for Actors. Her programs are powerful and teach actors how to make a strong professional impact. I highly recommend Heidi to actors around the world who want to be competitive in the industry.”

Wendy Alane Wright Talent Manager & Acting Career Coach

I took the InstaActor course in part because I had gotten so much good free training from Heidi that I thought it was only right to pay her back a bit by taking her InstaActor course. Great decision on my part because the cost of the course is well below the value.  The course material is well structured, professionally presented and goes far beyond anything available by any other social media guru. Plus it specifically addresses the needs of ACTORS! Awesome! My only regret about the InstaActor course is that I didn’t take it sooner.

InstaActor is the second training I’ve taken with Heidi and I cannot say enough about how the classes have changed the way I view social media. The videos are fun and informative, and Heidi is so personable you feel like you’re just sitting down to coffee with a friend. I constantly remember her words of wisdom as I craft social posts or work on my posting schedule. I send her name to everyone I know, and not only have her classes supported me, but Heidi is constantly cheering me on! InstaActor and the Social Rockstar Challenge are two of the best investments I’ve made as an actor.
