There are four elements to the membership:
- Monthly Live masterclass
- Monthly training video
- Monthly Downloadable Documents
- A Private Facebook Group
The live masterclasses will be by expert coaches and consultants who are specialists in different areas of online businesses & within the hair & beauty industry.
The monthly masterclasses will take place, either directly in the private Facebook Group or via Zoom (or another similar video conferencing platform) for approximately 1 hour. Unless there are unforeseen circumstances, the video calls will take place at specific dates and times which will be provided to you prior the masterclass.
During each monthly live session, the guest speaker will talk and most likely provide a presentation to the members. Usually lasting between 30-45 minutes approximately, then we will have approximately 15 minutes at the end for any questions. Please note this is a guideline, for example if there are a lot of questions, this may take up more time.
The information and guidance shared will be based on the guest speakers knowledge and experience. Lives will be recorded and added into the membership section – masterclasses for members to watch when needed.
Monthly training video
Each month there will be a training video added to the membership site by Sarah Hartley sharing social media and marketing advice, topics will depend on the monthly theme. Videos will be approxamitely 30 minutes. After watching the training and questions can be asked directly to Sarah via email@example.com or within the Facebook group, which could help others to get the answers they need. Sarah Hartley has over 10 years’ experience within the beauty industry and is certified with the Charted Institute of Marketing in Digital marketing level 4.
In addition to the group masterclasses and training videos there will be materials provided for self-study. Approximately 2 new resources will be added each month and can vary depending on the monthly theme. They could be documents such as , checklists, frameworks, photos, trackers and resources. For best results you should work through the workbooks and audio or video material in your own time. Failure to complete the self-study materials may limit your ability to learn from the tips and guidance shared in the live/training sessions.
