LadyBossBlogger: The Course I Wish I Had 5 Years Ago

I created Granola & Grace blog in 2013 and began my Instagram account soon after.  Both of these ventures started off with no direction. I like to wing it. Of course, there's nothing wrong with spontaneity if my plan was to blog as a hobby. However, my hope was to create content that brought value to cyberspace, which would then in turn open opportunities to develop relationships with my favorite brands. In short, I wanted to create a side gig and not a hobby.

After more struggle than success, I began to question my unorganized approach. I purchased a couple of books, started listening to other successful influencers, and took a free crash course. Though there have been significant improvements in the last two years, something is still missing. The free gigs and the tips from influencer pages had brought me as far as I could go.

Applying what I had learned, I focus on quality content.  Aside from that, wasn't I already doing all that I could do? So when LadyBossBlogger reached out, I was doubtful. Again, I've read the books, listened to some podcasts, etc.

Can I just say that I wish the LadyBossBlogger course had come across my path 5 years ago? After nodding along through the first couple of courses I stopped. New information.

"I hadn't heard that!" 

There was more method to this madness than I realized. For instance, defining my niche is a struggle for me. I knew I needed one, but narrowing that down felt more difficult than perhaps it should be. So when the course laid out 12 current, money-making niches, shared "sub-niches" (Amazing!), gave organized products that lined up with those niches, as well as blog title examples to go along with them I nearly leaped out of my chair!

This is what I need right now and I look forward to completing the entire course! There's so much more to learn. For example, Do you know how many times I've tweaked my Instagram profile? Well, LadyBossBlogger added more tips for tweaking.

Here are a few lectures in the How To Make Money as An Influencer Course:
  • "21 Ways to Build a Brand that Brands Would Want to Work With"
  • "10 Questions to Help Define Your Target Audience" (Another Struggle for ME!)
  • "Schedule Your Content Like A Boss" - They provide a downloadable worksheet with an entire year of content ideas! 
  • "Craft the Perfect Brand Collaboration Pitch"
  • "Email Marketing 101"
  • "How To Choose & Set Up A Business Entity"
  • & More!
