Brand Lab is 10 weeks total with a kick off moodboarding week, 8 weeks of topics and then a wrap up week at the end. It runs March 29th - May 11th.
This course is set out on a weekly schedule so you can digest each piece one at a time, but you will have lifetime access to the content so you can come back to any section, anytime you'd like.
With the video content, worksheets, live calls and implementation, plan on setting aside a few hours a week to really work on each section!
We know everyone has differing schedules, so we will be doing a quick survey on best days/times that work for our attendees and then choose the best times to do the calls. We will mix up day time and evening calls so we make sure people can hop on at least a few times!
The calls will also be recorded and posted into the modules for rewatching!
Good question, we've got you. This course is for small business owners and influencers that want to take the next step in their business, but they're not sure where to start.
If you're wanting to show up better online and reach your ideal customers so work is more fun, this is for YOU. These are tools that can be applied to any type of brand or influencer!
We're planning on launching Brand Lab again, we're just not sure when.
If you feel like right now isn't the right time, consider signing up and going at your own pace when you are ready. You'll have access to the live calls and the Facebook group as well, so you'll still be in the know on what we're sharing with students!
Your purchase doesn't expire! In fact, you're getting in at the ground level at the lowest price we'll offer this program at, and you'll have access to the site forever.
We will continue to add, tweak and update through the years, and you'll have access to all of those updates too. Rest assured, you'll be able to come back to these modules again and again.
