Look (UK) - - CONTENTS -

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…
