If you’re here for the DIY/Design, feel free to skip this post! But if you’ve wanted to “do what we do” or even thought about it for a minute, then this post is for you.

For 12 years I’ve been writing on this blog, opening up our doors to all of you readers, and we’ve been able to build a platform and expand Chris Loves Julia to something we could have never imagined. We have all of YOU to thank for that and we really wanted to educate others on how they can do the same, which is why we launched our Good Influence(r) course in 2019–to empower influencers from all over the world to find their niche, grow their following, and work with their dream brands. Enrollment opens every quarter, and we just had to let you know that our final enrollment for the year 2021 is now open and we don’t want you to miss it.

We’re constantly adding Q&A sessions with Chris and I, and lessons specific to finding your niche, engaging with your audience, getting verified, and so much more. In an effort to keep the discussion ongoing beyond just the course we started our Mastermind group on Facebook. The Mastermind Community is for those ready to turn their hobby into a career, or those who have been at it for a while and might find themselves at a standstill with their growth, their engagement, their sponsorships. This allows for not only Chris and I, but a community of Influencers to ask questions and get feedback and encouragement. We’re also there to celebrate all of your success and wins (and there’s already going to be plenty). Good Influence(r) was born out of our desire to create and cultivate a group of influencers who were interested in best practices for their audiences and partners. The past 3 years have shown us exactly the potential and magnitude of brands built with passion behind them. I cannot believe how fast this year has gone by, but the fourth quarter is almost here again–the quarter where we make nearly half of our yearly income. You read that right, and you can do the same thing. In alignment with this we have opened enrollment with time to get your prices raised, your media kit tightened, and line up your dream brands. Good Influence(r) enrollment is now open through the 31st of August. As a student you’ll have access to:

  • Our “Working With Brands” and “Growing Your Audience” courses
  • Additional workshops uploaded frequently into the library, including an iPhone photography lesson!
  • Comprehensive course modules covering your role as an Influencer, how to find your niche, building your platform, how to find out who your audience is and best engage with them, what to charge, creating a media kit, how to work with brands, how to write a contract, and much more.
  • 81 detailed charts revealing what other Influencers are charging for various types of content, broken down by audience size, platform and niche.
  • Instruction on building your social pages.
  • Multiple Audio interviews from real brands, an Influencer Marketing Agency, and a Full-Service Ad Agency sharing what they look for in Influencers, what turns them off from working with them again, and what keeps them coming back.
  • Guided worksheets to keep your progress moving.
  • Real life email examples (from our own inbox!) and form emails you can use to reference any and every scenario you’ll come across working and negotiating with brands.
  • Videos where we share real experiences we’ve had with partners, along with key takeaways
  • Full access membership in the Good Influence(r)™ Mastermind Group on Facebook.
  • Live Q&A’s with us (Chris & Julia) at the beginning and end of each semester where you can ask questions and receive specific feedback for your own brand and campaigns.

This course is for anyone who:
  • Anyone who wants to become an Influencer – no matter what niche.
  • Anyone dedicated to organically growing their following.
  • Anyone wanting to earn a living by monetizing their online content.
  • Anyone who would like to work with their dream brands.
  • Anyone who wants a platform to inspire positive change!
Whether you have 100 followers or 100K followers this course is perfect for growing your audience and creating content in the ever-changing world of Influencer Marketing. In addition to this being the last open enrollment before the end of the year, it’s also your last chance to enroll at the monthly rate of $39. Enrollment rates will be going up in 2022 so if you get in now, you’ll keep that low rate for the duration of your membership. Hear from some of our students:

“The direct coaching from Chris and Julia enabled us to negotiate higher partnership fees and be more self-assured in our ability to provide value to brands. Having the expert advice through the Good Influence(r) program has been essential to our growth and we cannot recommend this community and the wisdom shared in it enough!”


“Being able to take advantage of the Good Influence(r) program has been one of the highlights of my 2020 content creator/Influencer achievements! Not only was I able to gain valuable insight and lessons from completing the course, but also getting hands-on support from Chris and Julia has been phenomenal. One of several instances includes a direct review of my media kit by Chris, where he offered constructive criticism, direct edits, suggestions for pricing and advice on hiring a graphic designer or platforms to use for improvements to my kit if I chose to go the “DIY” route. Since improving my media kit based on Chris’ direct review I have been able to successfully pitch to dream brands and received more paid partnership opportunities. So grateful to be part of Good Influence(r)™!”


“I love making content and curating a beautiful feed but I didn’t know how to turn it into a business. I decided to invest in myself by taking the Good Influence(r) course. There, I learned the value of my work. Having no experience in the corporate world, this course taught me how to write a solid pitch and gave me the confidence to approach dream brands that I have since been able to secure partnerships with.”

    Hello, what times of year do you anticipate this course being available during 2022?

  2. Helen Gordon says:

    How long does the course run and for how long am I billed the monthly $39?

    • Julia says:

      It’s a self paced course! So you can cancel anytime. But we’re always adding more content and sharing new information in the mastermind that people stick around for.

  3. Katie says:

    Julia- your dress is beautiful- sorry to be that person, can you share where it’s from?

A reader recently asked me if I’m starting to fully embrace traditional style and whether we still consider our house to be a “modern Colonial” and why. It was a really great question and so timely — I had really just been thinking about my approach to this home and how my style has changed […]
