We’ve noticed something about making money as a travel influencer in the year and a bit since we started this blog, and that’s that most of the people making a living off of it seem to be doing so by …
… selling courses on how to make a living off it. Which made us just a trifle suspicious of how good the advice you’d get in those courses would actually be. Or to be more exact, just how much of it would be any more than you could figure out for yourself just by looking at what the successful people are doing, as we do in our weekly #travel #blog series!
So, when the opportunity presented itself to take this Udemy course in exchange for a review, we jumped right on that:

As on our Instagram account (follow us!) we’ve just hit the maximum follower count, so the cheap and easy #follow4follow tricks don’t work any more and we figured this course would be handy to give us some guidance on whether it would be worth any more effort.
Well, here’s our TL;DR:
- Yes, there’s definitely opportunities here
- But they’re not very easy opportunities, generally Instagram should be a minor part of an overall marketing strategy
- And if you’re bound and determined, yes this course is worth it!
The first third or so of the course goes over basic organizational and branding skills, which are a bit elementary for us, but then we’ve been running our software development business for multiple decades now so we’ve kinda got that part down; those who aren’t of a naturally entreprenurial bent will no doubt find it useful.
Then, we get into the meat of exactly how to build a valuable to somebody Instagram account and demonstrate that value in such a fashion as to get paid for it, or at least get FREE STUFF! And, well, that takes a lot of work and an engaged audience across all your social media, not just Instagram. There’s a number of useful tips to be picked up here, but the main takeaway is that building that engaged audience takes a lot of time and effort.
And finally, the part that tipped us over to a 5-star review and our strong recommendation you take this course are the actional items they provide: 1500+ email brand contacts and sample approach emails and brand decks they’ve used to score FREE HOTELS! as their 55 Secrets brand…
p dir=”ltr”>… but it’s still not easy, to say the least, even with the various tips on targeting properties likely to be open to your proposals. There’s some excellent tips to help here, but it’s still going to be a lot of work.
So if that doesn’t put you off, and you’re willing to put that lot of work in, why yes this course is almost certainly going to give you enough guidance to be well worth the price we believe; follow our affiliate link and sign up today!
