My Honest Review Of The LadyBossBlogger Course

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

Hello Loves!

Let’s face it, waking up in the morning is a daily struggle, and getting ready adds more to the morning grind. When I get ready in the morning, slipping into my outfit and putting on a face of makeup comes easily for me, however, figuring out what to do with my hair continues to be a daily battle. I’m not the best with hair and usually I just leave it as it is or I put it in a bun if my hair is bothering me. Until 2 weeks ago, when Insert Name Here (INH) reached out and asked if I wanted to try out some of their hair products, which has been the best decision I have ever made for my hair. They were kind enough to send over their Brit Ponytail Extension, Lily Ponytail Extension, and Sammy Bun (all in the color Black Brown). Before I jump into each hair product, I just want to say that their customer service is impeccable and I love that they really listen to their consumers and influencers when conflicts arises and work to ensure their products are the best quality on the market.

This is my natural hair without any extensions. My hair is very thick and has a great amount of volume (thank you Mom)!

Let’s first kick it off with the Brit Ponytail Extension! I miss my long hair, so this ponytail extension answered my long hair prayers. I love that this ponytail extension wasn’t too thick so it gave me that slick hair look. It was easy to clip onto my original ponytail and there is a piece of hair extension where it can be wrapped around the hair tie section for a more appealing finished look.

THE SAMMY BUN! I absolutely LOVE this hair bun! I am the worst with buns in general so this gave me that poofy hair bun that I have been longing to perfect. It is literally so easy to clip on and there is a draw string that helps tighten the bun to your hair to ensure the bun stays in place. Ladies, this bun isn’t going anywhere with the 4 insert combs and draw string in place. This is probably my favorite one out of the three!

Lily, Lily Lily! She is such a flirt! I love the natural curls that comes with this ponytail extension. It is exactly the same length as my natural hair, which added the perfect amount of volume. I felt so beautiful in this ponytail extension, I literally did not want to take it off. Just like the Brit Ponytail Extension, it is not heavy and it clips on the same way. Such a cute everyday ponytail!

Overall review: I love how real each product feels and looks on me. My family and friends couldn’t even tell that I was wearing extensions. The products are made from the best Japanese synthetic fiber that looks and feels just like real hair. It is heat resistant up to 400 degrees, so you can curl it for an extra bouncy look. Also the extensions are not heavy at all, they are very light weight and I didn’t feel like I was wearing any extensions. Lastly, I love how easy it is to clip on the ponytail extensions and bun! I am not a hair-gal, but with these I can manage to have cute hair without stressing about hair tools and haircare products for that perfect look.
