Perfect selfies and envy-inducing contouring skills – Look investigates the school of social media…
Perfect your pose and brush up on your selfie skills – there are make-up lessons, modelling classes… Welcome to the school of social media. It’s 6pm and you’re scrolling through Instagram on your commute home. How do these bloggers post so many impressive snaps? It’s easy to shun Insta fame as being reserved for those who have a naturally creative flare for the perfect flat lay. ‘I’m just not that patient a person,’ you might tell yourself. But unfortunately, you won’t have an excuse for much longer. Learning how to be a social media influencer is now a thing – and you can actually go to school to do it. At the Yiwu Industrial and Commercial College in China, students can take a course in everything from how to take the perfect selfie to contouring like a pro and upping their multimedia game.
Not gonna lie, we can see why it’s so appealing. After all, social media influencers are some of the biggest earners. According to the Influencer Marketing Agency, influencers can earn between £100 and £100,000 per post, depending on followers. According to reports, Kim Kardashian is rumoured to earn approximately £385,000 per post. Despite Yiwu being across the globe, the trend isn’t reserved for China. Here in the UK, nobullblogschool.com, theblogcademy.com and secretbloggers business.com offer similar courses on how to become a top blogger – and while the number of schools offering these kinds of courses is small, it’s a growing trend. So do you need to up your Instagram game, or are you already adept at growing your following? You’re about to find out…
