My Honest Review Of The LadyBossBlogger Course

One question that many influencers get asked over and over again is “how do you make money”? There are so many ways of making an income as an influencer: affiliate marketing, brand deals, creating your own products/services, etc. Today I am going to be sharing my honest review on LadyBossBlogger’s “How to Make Money as an Influencer” course. I will be sharing the pros and cons of the course and if it’s worth investing in. Thank you LadyBossBlogger + Elaine Rau for sponsoring this post. 

Let’s first start off with the course breakdown:

  • Introduction: How to Stand Out and Instagram Hacks
  • Branding: Business Plan and Defining Your Audience
  • Content: Evergreen Content, Scheduling, and Using Video
  • Pitching
  • Where to Find Brands to Work With
  • Money: How to Price Yourself, Passive Income, Track Earnings
  • Legal: Laws, Bank Accounts, Business Entity, and Taxes
  • Affiliation with Course

I have been a digital content creator/influencer for about 3.5 years now and everything that I learned from this course wasn’t new information. It was more of key reminders that I have a clear idea of what I want and how to get there. Here are a few key points that I learned from the course:

  • How to best reach your audience by understanding the 4 types of learners.
  • Don’t make brands think of creative ways to work with you—that is your job.
  • The best days to send collaboration emails to brands
    • Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday is the best time to send emails because on Monday they are catching up from the weekend, and on Friday they are finishing working for the week.
  • A partnership has to be two-sided. It needs to add value to both the blogger and the brand, which is why it is important to leave room for negotiation and change.
  • Your audience likes you because of your brand—brands like you because of your audience.
  • The best time to convert your LLC to an S Corp is once you hit $50K annually.

Even though I did learn a few new things here and there, I would not recommend this course for anyone who is where I’m at in my social media career: few years of knowledge knowing the ins and outs of Instagram and looking for more ways to grow your personal brand. This course was more of a reminder for an experienced influencer instead of new information. 

I did learn new information, but it wasn’t life-changing to make a dent in where I wanted to take my personal brand. If you are a newbie to making money on Instagram this course would be a good starting point, however, this wouldn’t be my #1 choice for investing in your social media career since I found the information too overwhelming and the content examples to be low-quality. As someone who prides in her high-quality work, the work represented in this course is not my cup of tea. 

Thank you for reading my honest review. 

Love, Gaonou
