Time to channel your true influencer self.
As you probably know, Love Island is back which often serves as one way to break through as an influencer. Most of you will have seen that through Molly Mae.
But, we can’t all have our Love Island applications accepted (mine’s still pending, honest!), so there’s now another way for all those desperate to break through on the ‘gram.
Yes, Dublin College is offering a course that’ll teach you all you need to know about the art of the influence. Their year-long level-5 social media influencing course is there to be signed up for, thanks to Colaiste Dhulaigh in Coolock.
Students of the holy grail course will go through a variety of lessons in areas such as Digital Video Production, Computer Illustrated Graphics, Blog & Website Creation, Digital Marketing, Media Analysis, Design Skills and Communications.
The description of the course is as follows:
“A Social Media Influencer is a user of social media who has established credibility in a specific industry. They have access to a large audience and can persuade others by virtue of their authenticity.
“On this course, you will learn the fundamentals of influencer marketing through Instagram and YouTube platforms. The course will focus on content creation, attracting followers, building a base, sponsorship, creating short videos and developing a YouTube channel.
“On completion of this course a student can progress to Journalism HND, Visual Communications HND, Marketing or develop an online Influencer/YouTube profile.”
If you or someone you know would smash being an influencer out of the park, check out the college’s website. The course is €600, plus an extra government charge of €200.
