Raise your hand if you ever get overwhelmed with the amount of information on the Internet? πŸ™‹πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ Between scrolling through Pinterest, getting 50 emails a day from bloggers promising to teach me how to make money, and a list of eBooks I’ve been meaning to read, it’s hard to know where to start. 

It can also be hard to weed out the good from the bad. There have been so many times where I’ve clicked to read an article from Pinterest and it wasn’t what I was expecting. The title was either click-bait or all of the information I actually wanted could only be accessed through a $100+ plus online course.

Um, no thank you….

If you’ve found yourself in a similar situation, I’m here to help! I’ve scoped out the best free courses for beauty bloggers. These courses will teach you how to start a profitable blog, how to make your first affiliate sale, and how to promote your posts on Pinterest. I believe that those three topics are the foundation to any successful beauty blog, and if you can master them then you can do anything!
