The quickstart guide to taking your Instagram...

Whether you would love to make a few dollars from your Instagram content as a side hustle, or you dream of becoming a full-time Kickass Content Creator, travelling the world and working with amazing brands, you need to know where to get things started.

This 3 part mini-course will give you a basic understanding, and actionable tips, that will definitely have you closer to achieving those goals.

Get it right from the start

You have to understand that this is a business you are trying to create, and with any business you must start with strong foundations. Have you ever seen an apartment block where they build the Penthouse before the basement? Or someone listing on the stock exchange before they even had a name or product?

In this course you will find activities to guide you through finding a niche and understanding personal brands, the foundations, if you like. We then move onto some tips on building an engaged community and growing your following, before bringing it all home with my advice on what you need to have in place before you make the giant leap into pitching for those dream collabs.
