About Ace The Gram
The Co-Founders of Ace The Gram are Vivien (Viv) Conway, and Natasha (Tash) Meys
Viv & Tash met at University in 2015. Viv was using Instagram to market her sportswear brand, Vivid Sportswear, and Tash was using Instagram to build a food styling and recipe creation portfolio for her job hunt at the end of her degree.
It was within the best interests of Viv & Tash that they found out how to grow their Instagram accounts, and so they spent many months trawling the internet for tips & ideas, and trialling and testing strategies.
Fast forward to 2016, both girls were still working full time jobs but were both managing Instagram accounts on the side for the likes of Comvita, Fit Mixes, Rhythm and Vines, and UNO. Magazine to name a few.
In 2017 and with growing testimonials and client requests, Tash & Viv were able to leave their full time jobs at a gym in LA and within the NZ Deer Industry respectively, to pursue Ace The Gram full time.
Since going ‘all in’, Ace The Gram has moved away from account management and towards selling online courses, consulting, and content creation.
Tash and Viv have a combined Instagram reach of more than 100K+, and have worked with Instagram accounts ranging from 70 followers to 1.8M followers.
The duo also run the 13k+ member Facebook Group, Instagram Growth and Engagement, where they share free knowledge about Instagram, including the latest updates & actionable advice.
Tash and Viv are overwhelmingly passionate about helping Businesses, Freelancers, Marketers, and Aspiring Influencers to succeed on Instagram.
Even though Instagram’s membership has grown to 800 million users, Tash & Viv still see massive opportunity for those wanting to leverage Instagram as a marketing channel, and consider the platform to be ‘underutilised’.
Their thought leadership on Instagram had lead to features in both local publications and Huffington Post, and live interviews in forums such as Traffic and Copy & Girl On A Mission.
