Yes, I did it. I made one of those Instagram e-courses.I know everybody is talking about the VERO app and yes I signed up to – you can follow me at Lea H, but I am not ready to dismiss Instagram yet. So in this post we gonna focus on that right?!? Well, a few month back I took part in one of those Instagram e-courses and I am gonna lay it all out for you: How I found it, did it help and if I learned anything new.
It is a lot of money, £ 90 to be precise and I did a lot of thinking but I had some money set aside. And just so you don’t have to go into the unknown, I am gonna help you decide if you should take the risk or not. So let’s get right into it.
If I was gonna invest in an e-course than it was gonna be in one from Sara Tasker (meandorla.co.uk). I only heard good things and as she is the queen of Insta – it was just a no-brainer. She has a few Instagram e-courses and I went with Gloom & Glow as it was a new launch at the beginning of the winter season. You can read everything about the course here.
I loved how it all sounded and I was genuinely looking forward to getting all into it. The set up of the course was really easy to get around and I loved how you could tick off each challenge and chapter.
I can only talk about my experience with the particular e-course I took. But I like to think that some things might be similar to others. So let’s start with the good things.
Well that’s the burning question, isn’t it? Now I liked how I discovered some new ways of taking pictures and capturing a moment. However, I found out that it isn’t for me. Just like what I got out of the money I invested in – I think it wasn’t quite that worth it. I mean the course itself is brilliant but with how I felt within the whole group etc. it has just a bitter aftertaste. Up until then I always found the blogging community was such a supportive bunch (it still is!) but for me, the Instagram community wasn’t.
So should you take one of those Instagram e-courses? I couldn’t tell you. Each has to decide for themselves. You have now read how the whole online course worked for me and I know I won’t take one again, well an Instagram e-course anyways. It does have it good and bads and it may as well work for others but not for me. And just so you know, I didn’t gain a lot of followers on Insta due to this course. I never went in it to gain tonnes of followers but I hoped it would help my Insta.
Let me know in the comments down below if you ever have done an Instagram e-course or if you wanna do one. Maybe you were on the same course as I?
Until next time,
