I took the classes with Author Influence largely because I was curious and ignorant. I didn't understand how an author, one who deals in words, could appeal to a social media platform that is largely visual. Author Influence triggered a complete paradigm shift for how I view the role of social media as an author, the importance of branding, and the feasibility of creating a successful account.
When I started the course I didn't have an Instagram account at all. When I finished, only a couple weeks later, I had over 100 followers. I gain more daily.
I loved that I was able to take the course at my own speed, and implement my new knowledge to my account. I found immediate success.
The lessons on photography, particularly the advice about choosing to a color scheme, filter, and the rule of thirds, have really made a difference for me. Bex was fantastic as an instructor as she was both animated, knowledgable, and approachable. Communication with her and others taking the course was both enjoyable and instructional.
I recommend it to any authors wanting to make the jump into the Instagram world who are unsure of where to start, or where to take their existing accounts.
