What are my options for learning and the differences between them?
We’re so glad you asked! We’ve designed several options so you can choose the one that best fits your schedule, learning style, and needs!
- The Business of Blogging About Sex — Group Class (Fall 2017): Learn alongside other blossoming badass bloggers for one intensive month. This option provides a structured environment with deadlines, plus classmate camaraderie and feedback. Bonuses for signing up for the group class include a free sex toy for review from one of our sponsors (SheVibe, Tantus, Fun Factory, Vibratex, and Lovehoney!), two live video hangouts with JoEllen and Epiphora, a photography critique from Penny, and a PDF of bonus materials upon graduation!
- The Business of Blogging About Sex — Independent Study: Complete all the lessons on your own schedule, with optional feedback from JoEllen and Epiphora. Less expensive than the group class and perfect if you want to get started right away, work at your own pace, have the freedom and comfort of working independently, and/or want to get your site up and running before fall. Save 10% over purchasing all lessons individually!
- Individual Lessons: Choose only the components that suit your specific needs. This option is great for bloggers wanting to hone their craft in specific areas, at their own pace.
Will I need to be at my computer at set times to take advantage of the course material?
Nope! We realize everyone has their own schedule and have specifically designed the class to be appreciated at your own pace. If you purchase individual lessons or the independent study, all content will be made available to you immediately upon purchase. Attendees of the Group Class will receive new content each week, with several days to read the lesson, complete the assignment, and interact via comments section with classmates. The only set times are during the two live video hangouts during the Group Class.
How long will I have access to the course material?
If you purchase individual lessons, you will have access to the content for 3 months from date of purchase. If you purchase the independent study, you will have access to the content for 6 months. Attendees of the Group Class will have access to the content starting in fall, and for several months after class ends. Assignments must be completed within these timeframes to receive feedback from JoEllen and Epiphora.
Do you offer payment plans?
We do have the option of paying in installments for our Group Class. Just choose the number of installments that will work for you from the dropdown.
What is your refund policy?
Because the content is available immediately upon purchase, our individual lessons and independent study are non-refundable. If you sign up for the Group Class in fall 2017 and find yourself unable to participate, you may cancel your enrollment at any time prior to March 31, 2015. We will miss you terribly and refund your payment minus a $25 processing fee. There will be no refunds after July 31.
I’ve already been blogging for a couple years. Is this coursework for me?
This course is designed to aid bloggers in career development. The lessons are the culmination of everything Epiphora and JoEllen have learned in their combined decade of blogging and reflect everything they (and an impressive roster of guest instructors) have learned en route to building sustainable careers. There’s something for you in the coursework whether you are a hobby-blogger looking to make the leap to professional or a pro looking to give your career a boost.
