I’ve been at this blogging thing for a few months, but I’ve been on my Instagram game for a little over a year. So far everything I’ve learned has been through Google search or good old trial and error. Overall, I’m pleased with the progress I’ve made, but it’s definitely been a slow process.
This week I started a course titled “How to Make Money as an Influencer,” (click this title for link) through Lady Boss Blogger. When I started it, I figured I’d learn the art of crafting a caption, or what hashtags to use. I wasn’t sure what else there was to learn after a full year posting on IG. But ladies: you don’t know what you don’t know. And I don’t know A LOT.
What I’ve learned so far…
After just a few short sessions, this class is blowing my mind. I am geeking out SO much – really, I’m even taking notes:
While I have learned a little something or two about crafting an enticing caption, I’ve also discovered what databases to use to connect with brands, made edits to my profile and email account, found resources that help plan and schedule posts, and even started using IGTV to diversify my content. Have I mentioned I’m less than halfway done?
What’s included in the course?
The course covers the good to know like content creation and strategy, but it also covers the NEED to know, like legal regulations and money – something we all hope to achieve through our audience engagement. It’s not just paragraphs of information, either. Elaine shares screenshots from her own IG account to give tangible examples. She also provides links to any third-party resource she recommends. Literally everything you need will be found IN the course!
This course was created by an influencer for influencers – and many of us new influencers are hustling hard on the side of a full-time job. This course, and others on her forum, can be completed at your own pace, so whether you have a full hour in your day or just a few minutes before bed, you will gain something every time you open up your computer. I know I have.
If this has piqued your interest, I recommend going for it! I’m not going to lie, I was skeptical at first… after all, how can there really be THAT much to learn about IG and blogging (which shows how naïve I was).
