2 years ago when I had 623 followers, I was wondering the same question:
How do people get paid on Instagram???
Since then I've worked with:
- 1000+ other large and small businesses
There is so much opportunity it's mind blowing! 🤯
But if you don't learn HOW TO grasp onto those opportunities, they will pass you by.
Did you know?
Your entire life can be "sponsored".
I can't remember the last time I purchased my own makeup, skincare, haircare, clothing, office supplies, kitchen supplies, tickets to events... the list goes on.
Imagine if you can cut out all those expenses in your life and GET PAID FOR THEM instead.
My only expenses now are bills + food.
Recently my new home studio equipment was all #sponsored (ring light + backdrop stand + LED flood lights).
Get FIRST HAND KNOWLEDGE of the industry from an actual full-time influencer.
I do what I teach and I teach what I do.
And the best part is...
I don't leave anything out in my courses!
(...which is evident from the success my students have achieved).
I was getting denied by every brand I reached out to before taking the course. Most of the time I would not even receive a response from the brand! Since I have completed the class, I have been contacted by over 20 brands, with some being paid offers.

It's not about how many followers you have.
- You may have 2 followers and be making $0 on social media.
- You may have 200,000 followers and STILL be making $0.
- You may have 2,000 followers and be making $2,000 per month.
Followers do not equal dollars.
THE RIGHT STRATEGIES = $.
My engagement has skyrocketed, I’ve learned how to produce video content, I’m pitching to brands I’d love to work with, and I’m not spending anywhere near as much time as I used to on Instagram either. I can’t recommend this course highly enough. It changed everything for me!

People spend thousands on courses that don’t even a quarter of the knowledge and resources shared throughout this course. There were nearly 50 lessons, 12 of them being additional bonus information that we can use outside of just influencing! The resources are limitless, this course is a MUST HAVE!

I remember the first time I got a delightful phone call from a student.
She said she LOVED my courses (and that she had purchased all of them) because THEY GAVE HER RESULTS.
And everyone likes results.
Ever since I completed the class, my engagement has honestly skyrocketed. This course has really taught me to take a step back and notice what my audience is genuinely engaging with. This course is great if you have no clue where to get started.

I get asked a lot if I sell courses on how to get more followers on Instagram.
And my answer is this:
No, because having followers doesn't make you money, but working with brands does.
When you start working with brands, not only do you get paid to post, but they actually grow your account for you because they share your content with their audience!
This is how you GET PAID FOR GROWING YOUR INSTAGRAM FOLLOWING.
Now, it's one thing to make a couple hundred on an influencer campaign here and there...
It's a whole other thing to actually MAKE A LIVING ONLINE.
I'm not here to just teach you how to get those one-off campaigns, of course you'll learn how to do that too because that is how you start.
But I'm here to teach you how to build a SUCCESSFUL ONLINE BUSINESS so your "influencer status" isn't dependent upon your following per se.
When you have a...
1. Business plan
2. Marketing strategy
3. True follower growth techniques
4. Entrepreneurial mindset
This is what separates influencers that make good money versus ones that scrape by.
Another aspect that is really important is how to do your taxes as an influencer and all that other "legal stuff" which is also covered in the course.
Personally, the most helpful tips for me were: Pitching to brands, defining my audience, learning the importance of and how to build my presence on other platforms besides Instagram (such as my website, email list and other social media platforms), and the legal stuff (LBB breaks it down and explains it in an easy-to-understand way).

Why are brands so willing to throw money at influencers?
Because people are paying less attention to what's on TV, magazines, newspapers and more attention to what's on personal blogs, social media and YouTube.
My favorite part of the course was the section about pitching brands. I also took some tips away from the media kit section and now have something that I can actually share with brands! Finally, I didn't realize that my Instagram bio needed a makeover and have been able to improve it according to Elaine's suggestions.

MINI LESSON #1:
Big brands pay to tap into your AUDIENCE, which is why it's crucial to learn how to craft the most enticing and engaged audience to get paid well.
Your audience consists of the people who follow you on social media as well as your email subscribers. The more in line your audience is with the brand you want to work with - the more opportunities you'll get.
Even if brands don't normally work with influencers, such as the example below, if you have a solid audience, they will change their minds just to work with you specifically!
MINI LESSON #2:
There are 3 main types of influencers out there...
1. Ones that ENTERTAIN
2. Ones that EDUCATE
3. Ones that DO BOTH
How you create an audience for each differ, but the strategies and techniques are the same, which is what you'll be learning in this course.
MINI LESSON #3:
Being an influencer is all about building trust.
When people trust your OPINION and base their DECISIONS on it... you're officially an influencer.
I use Teachable to host my online courses and have recommended them to everyone who asks!

Sign up for class let's do this!!!
Try this course out for 30 days, if you do the work I have outlined for you and have learned nothing, return it and get your money back.
But if you buy it, like it, do the work I have outlined for you and learn from it... it can change your life.
Think 3 years from now, where do you want to be?
I started blogging 3 years ago when everyone thought the blogging craze had already passed.
THEY WERE WRONG.
Then 2 years ago I started my influencer journey when it seemed like things were moving too quick to jump on board...
ONCE AGAIN WRONG.
All you have to do is DECIDE what you want to do, COMMIT to it, get a MENTOR to direct you, and you will SUCCEED.
What is your biggest asset in life?
It's the one thing you can't "make more of" or "get better at".
How can you use your biggest (yet limited) asset to build another asset?
Don't waste your precious time!!!
Learn from those who have gone before you... who actually want to help you (this is key).
Ready? Let's begin!
Join other happy students who have already started their influencer journey!
Something I didn't expect was how much my confidence grew. Another thing that I loved about this course is I feel much more secure in my job as an influencer. Lady Boss Blogger really opened up my eyes to how much influencers are really doing for companies and made me proud to be an influencer and content creator.
