What was your inspiration for a ‘Basic Girls Guide’?
Basically (ha ha) I want to show all you guys and gals out there that you don’t have to be a Kardashian or a bikini model to make it on the gram. Unfortunately for me, I am neither, but I have still managed to build an incredible community of punters that (I hope) allows me to positively affect and influence others. And the great news is Queens, you can have it to.
I came up with the concept about three years ago when I was on holiday in Bali. Our @wethe_wildones account had just started to grow a following and I was so intrigued by Instagram and the social media/influencer industry in general. I started doing some research and actually incorporating the information that I had learnt into my own Instagram accounts, and this really helped them grow. I guess I came up with the idea before we had a following and now a BGG has grown and we’ve grown with it. The proof really is in the pudding Queens!
What will a ‘Basic Girls Guide’ do for me?
A ‘Basic Girls Guide’ is an online video course aimed at helping all the basic gals out there grow an online Instagram community full of like-minded people. Over the past few years I have combined my research with practical knowledge I’ve picked up from my experience in the social media industry as well as tips and tricks from some of the biggest influencers in Australia. Instagram has quite literally changed my life. Through a ‘Basic Girls Guide’ I want punters to be able to utilise their skills and talents, no matter their niche, and use this to build a community of people who are inspired and influenced by your opinion. Whether it be baking cakes, styling outfits, or fitness and workout inspiration, a ‘Basic Girls Guide’ is about creating an environment on Instagram where the people that follow you are actually there to listen to what you have to say. At the end of the course you should be left with an abundance of tips and tricks and a clearer vision of what you want your Instagram to be about. But at the end of the day it is up to you to put the work in; do the challenges, post in the Facebook group and engage with your community BBy!
Can I buy a ‘Basic Girls Guide’ at any time?
Unfortunately we will be capping numbers, just so that we can manage the mentoring and tutoring aspect of the course so make sure that you get in quickly. But don’t worry BBy; if you miss out on the first round we will definitely be coming back for round two.
Can I share this account with a friend?
Unfortunately only one person can use the course at any time.
What is included in the course?
This course takes place over 14 episodes with over 3 hours of content from some of Australia’s biggest influencers, including Tammy Hembrow, Lily Brown, Em Davies and many more. These videos cover EVERYTHING you need to know, from developing your brand, creating content, editing your feed, Instagram stories, captions, times to post, engagement and finally, having an influence. Literally ALL you need is your iPhone and some hard work. As well as all of this you will gain access to an exclusive Facebook group where all of us basic gals can share our journeys together. You will be posting your completed challenges, and any other questions or things you want to share with your fellow basic gals. Mama LJ will be on there providing feedback, answering your questions and helping you along the way.
Will this course make me rich and insta-famous?
Look Queen, I’m not going to lie sometimes we all wish we could be Kylie Jenner. But as nice as it would be to have 167 million followers and a squillion dollars, that is not what this course is about. A BGG is about being able to build an engaged and loyal audience, big or small, who follow and engage with your Instagram on the basis of what YOU as an individual bring to the table. Monetisation of your Instagram can be a side effect of growing this Instagram community, and we will discuss how to do this in the course; however this is by no means the main goal.
Is this course just videos with information, or is there more to it?
Oh BBy, there is so much more. As well as watching the videos you will be encouraged to take part in the challenge at the end of each video and post the results to the Facebook group. What makes the course so epic is how interactive it is; I really want to create a BGG community where we can support each other, provide feedback and interact with other basic gals. And of course I’ll be with you every step. Oh, and there are the Lightroom Presets included to really up your insta game.
Will this be a subscription or a one time payment?
One time payment of $169.95
What presets do I get for free with the course?
You get ten incredible Lightroom editing presets free with the course; four from @teganandnedpresets, three from @emdaviespresets and three from @brandedpresets. The presets are for mobile so you can edit like a fkn pro straight from your phone: MOOD. These presets are essential for not only making your pictures look cool AF but also helping create an aesthetically pleasing feed. We will talk more about this as well as teach you how to use the Lightroom app and presets in a Basic Girls Guide
