Fabulous audio courses that demystify influencer marketing step-by-step

so you can build, grow and be freaking awesome! 

You cannot take over the world alone!

I tried. It didn’t work.

But it can be hard to know where to start!
So I created the complete guides for:

Hey! I’m Alison,

And I went from one girl alone with her computer to a community of over 100,000 strong with the business of my dreams. And one of the main ways I did that was through awesome collaborations. 

I’ve personally worked with hundreds of businesses both small and big, brands, and humans—as an influencer, event producer and brand strategist—and have learned there is a lot of confusion when it comes to influencer marketing! There are people doing an AWESOME job and reaping the benefits, and people who are straight up missing out. You cannot afford to miss out!

Enough about me, let’s talk about you…


  • That you have an awesome, important message, content or product to share (RIGHT?!)

  • That people would just LOVE to be exposed to what it is you’re trying to create

  • That to build something exceptional you need to collaborate with exceptional people

  • That working with others will make you more money, open more doors, and help you find more success 


  • How to go about reaching out or asking to collaborate

  • If you have ENOUGH…enough money, enough of a social media following, enough clout!

  • What to pay, what to ask to get paid, what the “standard is” or if you’ve made this all up!

  • If it’s worth it (hint, it TOTALLY is)

You’re not alone—reach out and take my hand.

And that’s  why I’ve created two insanely awesome audio courses called:

Packed with insight, actionable ideas + tried and true strategies for collabs. 🙂 🙂



Why is everyone so confused?

Social media marketing is the freaking wild west! I’ve been in this game for over 10 years (both as an influencer and a business) and it can STILL feel like no one knows what they’re doing! Everything changes so quickly!

What I get asked about the most—in lots of different terms—is how do I collaborate/work with people so I can grow?! Brands and companies aren’t sure how to approach influencers, and influencers are hesitant to reach out to brands!

And no wonder! There are no set-in-stone industry standards (that’s the gospel truth) and everyone operates differently! That’s why I set out to define best practices, rules for success and mind-blowing MUSTS from both personal experience and industry leaders.

Because we’re moving at whirlwind pace I DO NOT believe in selling growth hacks, shortcuts, or information that will be obsolete in 2 months. The principles and ideas in these courses are rooted in timeless relationship and collaboration TRUTHS (which is why they’re effective) but updated and applied to current social media marketing strategies.

Translation: this info is timeless & current.

What’s in these super entertaining and enlightening courses???
  • 13 exclusive audio sessions —that you can to listen to ON THE GO—so you can learn, laugh and get amazing ideas without having to stare at a screen one extra minute!

  • Interviews with 9 industry professionals (both companies and influencers) featuring personal stories, REAL numbers, and REAL examples and REAL how-to marketing practices.

  • Influencer marketing ideas, strategies and practices from industry leaders! (They SPILL their secrets) These courses speak mostly (but not exclusively) about Instagram—when it comes to pricing—but the principles and ideas really do apply across to all platforms!

  • A 20+ page digital Textbook outlining all of the concepts covered in the interviews plus anything else you need to know

  • A 25+ page Interview Notes section—because these were designed to be listened to while you get your life and work done we took notes for you, as well as created easy-to-use worksheets, flow charts, and graphs

How ‘bout some bonuses:
  • Ask an Attorney: Do I need a contract?

  • A sample contract to get you started

  • Do I have to say #sponsored: FTC Updated policies

  • Sample pitch emails that you can copy and paste!

  • Access to the Private Alison’s Brand School Boss Babes Facebook Group—filled with weekly prompts, quarterly LIVE Q&A’s access to Branding Coaches and exclusive discounts!

We HIGHLY encourage you (and all of our past students do too!) to buy both courses! Which is why we have the bundle priced at a steal + a bonus course added! You benefit a ton from hearing both perspectives!

Both courses sound like they would work for me?

Which do I buy?!


I’m glad you asked, while there is some crossover in content–80% of the material in each course is DIFFERENT, and each side (influencer or business) can really learn from both courses. 

PLUS when you buy the bundle you get the $100 add-on course for free! YES!!! When you buy the bundle you save $199! That’s $99 in savings on the courses, plus the $100 The course that stories sold! exclusive add-on course!


When you buy the bundle you save $199! That’s $99 in savings on the courses plus the $100 in savings on “The Course That Stories: How I launched a 6-figure course using influencer marketing” exclusive add-on course.


What if I already bought the courses last time?

Don’t worry! If you already purchased the audio courses, they will be automatically updated to your Gumroad account and you can listen for free. If you’d like to buy The course that stories sold: How I launched a 6-figure course using influencer marketing! You can! (I know you’ll love it!) You should have received an email to the account you used to buy the courses with the exclusive offer, but if you missed it shoot us an email at!

What if I don’t like it?

Honestly, I’m offended. I learned SO MUCH from these courses and I made them! But I’m so confident these courses will make your life better—and that they will help you find more success in reaching out and collaborating with people—that I’m offering a 100% 15-day money back guarantee. All you have to do is show me your work, that you tried what we suggested, and we’ll refund ya’ if it doesn’t work out.

Please note, I’m not promising to double your profits, social media numbers, or yeses. I’m simply giving you confidence, tools, and ideas for reaching out for successful collaborations so you can grow and dominate. Good product and good ideas are on you!

How long do I have to finish the course?!

FOR-EV-ER! These courses are audio courses with digital textbooks, notebooks and templates. You get to keep the files for ever and ever! I’m PRETTY sure you’ll want to listen to the interviews more than once, because they will keep generating new ideas for you each time you listen!

How do I listen to the audio part of the course?

When you purchase the course or courses you will be emailed links to all the files—both the MP3 files for the audio, and the PDF and word files for the textbooks and templates. Then you can simply download the files and listen on your phone. Another option for listening on the go is downloading the Gumroad app. 

Who are these so-called “industry leaders and influencers” interviewed in the course?
Again, I’m so glad you asked, these are such good questions!

Yes, they’re all women. Who run the social media world? THAT’S WHAT I THOUGHT—but these courses are not just for women, they are for BOSS BABES. Men can be boss babes too.

Each interviewee shares personal information and stories about collaborations, pricing, their path to success, their trial and error, as well as detailed marketing strategies and plans for growth and general domination.

I always say you should INVEST IN PEOPLE WHO INVEST IN YOU, and I believe you should start by INVESTING IN YOURSELF.

If you have a goal to grow your audience, build your relationships, become an even better boss babe then you are today, give yourself permission to focus on building your empire by working with the brands and influencers you love. You can do it. The time is right now.

“When we strive to become better than we are, everything around us becomes better too.”
―Paulo Coelho

I just want to help you reach out to people with more success so they can see your awesomeness. Much love XO Alison
