Online influencer course Crushfame launches with lessons from Gabby Epstein

Crushfame, an online platform selling courses on how to become a successful influencer has launched with its first course from famous influencer Gabby Epstein, who has an Instagram following of 1.8m.

Launching its first course this week, Instagram-famous Epstein shared 51 video lessons covering how to make a successful Instagram account, photography tips and tricks, the best apps and photo filters to use, when to post, how to build a following, managing negativity and body image and getting perks and freebies.

The Australian startup sells each course for $96.55 which includes 51 video lessons, a 16-page playbook, a media kit Instagrammers can use to get paid, and access to the Crushfame academy for ongoing support.

The course is 2.5 hours with options available to specialise in becoming a fashion blogger, health and fitness influencer, travel influencer and vlogging expert.

Matt Sterne, co-founder of Crushfame, said in a statement: “We started by asking each other why no-one had yet created the “how to” of social media influencers in a rich and engaging format from actual influencers themselves and not from a corporate voice.”

“A common trait shared among the top influencers we’ve met is a very different mindset on what it takes to develop your own personal brand online and live life on your terms. We felt this needed to be explored,” his co-founder Jarrad Collings added.

Crushfame is available online and as an app for mobile and tablets.
