Hey! I'm Juan

I'm here to help you turn your expertise into a profitable full-time business with the power of Instagram. Without the stress, the hassle, or the overwhelm!

Stop trying to figure out this "content creator thing" on your own...

I know what it feels to be trapped, to compare yourself to everyone, to feel lost, and stuck. To feel like you're not getting anywhere with Instagram and feel like a victim of the ever-changing Instagram algorithm. I know because I have been there too. Many times.


Building a successful personal brand and business as a content creator should not be this hard and overwhelming.  And contrary to what you might think, you don't need a huge following, viral content, or to post every day.

You need to understand how to use the power of Instagram Marketing & Content to build a community of raving fans and create an impact in their lives.

Now, let's start shifting your focus from reach to impact and make Instagram finally work for you. 

Start your journey 🚀  

From courses to memberships. Find exactly what you need to grow your personal brand on Instagram, master short-form video,  and finally start making money from your content!


Hey there! My name is Juan Galan!

I'm your coach, Insta friend,  and founder of IG Creator Academy! 

I started my journey in marketing 9 years ago working in the corporate world.

During the first four years, I juggled from job to job, while trying to get gigs on Instagram on the side.

In 2018 I got furloughed and I saw it as the perfect opportunity to start venturing into the entrepreneurial world.

I started to search for clients to run their social media accounts while doing photography on the side, but it wasn't until COVID, that I realized that my mission was not to help already established businesses but to help creators like YOU create their brands and grow businesses with Instagram.

Fast forward to today, I've grown a community of over 120k members across all channels and helped hundreds of students understand how to use Instagram to grow their brands and monetize through 1:1 coaching, courses, memberships, and challenges.

Now it's your turn! Let me help you grow your personal brand and start earning money from your passion!


Student Feedback


Laura Beltrán @laurabelru

Fashion Consultant

"In the past month and a half (since we had our second session), I have seen my followers almost duplicate and I have also increased interactions and visibility—both of which were my main goals starting these sessions. I have also launched my own membership program and have started to work with one consulting client, based on the conversations I had with Juan. I would definitely recommend it."


Gabi Metz

IG & Online Business Coach

"Juan thank you so much for guiding me on Instagram! Since I’ve made the changes my following and engagement have increased and I’m much more confident with my content. I was on the fence about coaching and now I’m sorry I didn’t do it sooner."


"His strategies are practical and so helpful, I have a clear idea now how to do SEO and optimize my profile, along with all small details that help to get a decent reach on my reels, recently I got 21+k views on my recent reel, and I just follow his tips and advice.
I do recommend taking his course if you want to take your Instagram to the next level and be a full-time influencer!!."
