‘I Can Teach You To Become A Top Blogger’
Look Influencer @Sarahakwisombe runs her own influencer school, so we got the lowdown…
‘After being fired from my office job and managing to make my blog work full-time, I set up the No Bull Blog School to remove all the hype and BS around blogging and becoming an influencer. I teach everything you need to know to start and grow a successful blog. However, there’s so much more that goes into it – branding, social media, techie back-end stuff, how to monetise and grow your personal brand and business... the list goes on.
‘My signature Blueprint To Blogging course costs £75 and is a six-week intensive programme. It puts everything about starting a blog and becoming an influencer into easy terms, plus it’s all done online so people can watch in their own time, which is perfect if you already have a full-time job. Every week a new module is released and it’s all broken down into easy 0-minute chunks, so it’s never overwhelming. We also have a private Facebook group where you can chat with other students (and me), plus there’s worksheets and challenges every week.
‘The biggest mistake people make is to imitate what other people have done before, as well as comparing their brand-new blogs to bloggers who’ve been doing this for five years plus and saying: “Mine will never be this good.” This new course is just one example. Anyone who’s teaching others how to do something they love is OK by me, even if they are my competition!
‘Can anyone be taught to be an influencer? Yes. But it requires a lot of work to build a loyal following. What can’t be taught is charisma and work ethic. Personality is so key. Being an influencer isn’t just about taking pretty pictures anymore – you have to really have a personality that shines out, too. I think it’s down to being confident in being yourself and being authentic. People can sniff a phoney a million miles away. Also, work ethic I think is hard to teach – you either have the hunger and drive or you don’t.’
