For people like you, being an influencer is a dream gig.
Name another position where you can get paid tens of thousands of dollars, receive free products & services and travel on someone else's dime – all with only a few hours per week. It's alright, we'll wait...
Can't think of one? That's because there isn't.
One of the common mistakes people make in thinking about how to become an influencer is that you need hundreds of thousands, or millions of followers to attract brands or some special, unique talent. Wrong.
The soon-to-be $10 billion industry is flocking towards nano and micro-influencers – commonly identified as those with between 100 - 100,000 followers... normal, everyday people. That's right, as little as a few hundred followers and a mobile phone in hand. You could sneeze and open your eyes and have an audience of that size – it's that easy.
But simply having enough followers doesn't guarantee your 12-month clothing brand sponsorship contract, or an all-expense paid trip to Bali to shoot content. That'd be too easy.
There's a not-so-clear line between someone who just happens to have followers, and one who is monetizing their account and making more than what their 9-5 pays them.
In this course, you will learn the how-tos, tips, tricks & tools to grow a loyal, trusting following online. We'll teach the secrets of what separates influencers with 50,000 followers earning $0, and those who have 2,500 followers who are under long-term contracts and getting paid thousands to create content they love & share it with the people who admire and respect them.
We're so confident that our course will teach you everything you need to know, that we'll find you a paid collaboration upon completion of the course. Guaranteed.
If we fail to find you a paid collaboration, you get DOUBLE your money back.
Who is this course for?
- Anyone who's willing to reallocate two of the 13 hours and 33 minutes we already spend browsing social media each week, in order to achieve any or all of the benefits of becoming a paid influencer. We take you from the basics, to the advanced techniques used by the world's top social media influencers.
- Already established influencers looking to improve their content quality, increase their engagement rate and follower counts, and attract more premium brands.
- For those who consider themselves more of the private type. We'll also teach you how to create a commercial, or "shout-out" account that you can quickly build & manage to achieve similar goals & objectives, without needing to share your personal life on social media.
Do I have to sell my soul to the influencer devil to be become an influencer?
No. Contrary to popular belief, you don't need to hold up a package of Fit Tea or wear FashionNova to become an influencer on social media.
Within the course, we actually teach you the opposite – you'll find out what brands and product categories to avoid and how to attract brands you have an interest in and can feel good about standing behind as an Instagram influencer and content creator.
Have a passion for mental health? How about a collaboration with Pura Vida Bracelets, who manufacture bracelets in third-world countries – providing jobs and donating proceeds to hundreds of charities & causes? Or how about Ten Tree clothing? Their brand is built on the promise of planting 10 trees for every unit sold.
For every trashy Instagram brand, there's a solid brand with a drive to improve the lives of their customers and the people they impact.
We'll show you where to find them.
What will brands be assessing me for and how will this course help attract them?
The three most important aspects of a paid influencer that a brand looks for when assessing what the sponsorship rate will be (and if they're even going to approach you) is follower count, engagement rate & content quality.

We'll show you how your current Instagram engagement rate stacks up and how you can instantly increase it for the next time you post.

I'm really not confident or experienced in this industry – I'm too intimidated.

After teaching you how to price your services, you'll be given negotiation lessons that you can instantly integrate into your arsenal to increase your rates.
