Why did I create this course?
When I first launched Emma’s Edition in 2014 during my senior year of college, I had no idea what I was doing. I was posting maybe once a month on my blog. But to be honest, my focus was on graduating and starting my career in corporate America. I didn’t start taking my blog seriously until 2016. I made a decision that I would learn everything I could about building your blog and Instagram.
After building Emma’s Edition the last 5 years and a master’s of digital media degree, I’ve figured out a solid content strategy and plan for my blog and Instagram. I realized that everything I learned in my undergrad in business, my master’s program, and the last 5 years of trial and error taught me how to build an engaged audience with a clear content plan and strategy.
Even as algorithm’s have changed and the influencer industry has matured, my audience and my business has steadily grown:
2016: 8% engagement rate, ~2,000+ followers
2017: 6% engagement rate, ~13,000+ followers
2018: (established a clear content plan & strategy during grad school)
4% engagement rate, ~22,000+ followers, $10,000 brand deals
2019: 4% engagement rate, ended the year with ~29,000+ followers, $40,000 brand deals
2020: 5% engagement rate, ~39,000+ followers, $120,000 brand deals
2021 Goals: 5% engagement rate, ~50,000+ followers, revenue target: $200,000
Even as a microinfluencer (under 100K), I’ve realized that creating and executing a robust social media content plan and strategy consistently has allowed me to build an authentic, engaged audience. I know what works, I know what doesn’t work for my audience.
My intention for you after taking this course is for you to understand who your target audience is and have the confidence to lay out and execute on your content plan and strategy. My intention is that you’re able to improve your content plan and build your community as a creator.

Course testimonial from @nikkagabrielle
“Even as a creator that’s been making content for a few years now, I’ve still learned so much with Emma’s course, Build an Engaged Audience with Your Content Plan & Strategy. Emma really dives deep on how to narrow down your branding and how to create content that serves your audience.
One of the most essential parts of the course was how to give myself a content audit. I think many creators continue with their regular posting schedule without taking the time to analyze how they’re actually doing. Emma does a great job on explaining what to look for and how to use the data you find to help continue improving your content!
This course helped me prepare the exact strategy to implement to stay consistent and engaged with my audience and branding and grow as a creator!”
