INSTANT ACCESS TO ALL CLASSES
Welcome beautiful kin! We're so glad to have you here. Won't you please join us?
Inspired. Organised. Energised.
If that's how you'd like to feel about your approach to social media and digital marketing this year, join us for this ecourse focussed on content marketing and social media for business.
Enrolments close 11 November 2016
We take the overwhelm out of promoting yourself online and help you approach your online marketing with authenticity, purpose and a plan.
This course isn't about turning you into someone you're not, but rather celebrating who you are and building and connecting with clients who appreciate you for who you are.
Our core philosophy for this course is built around these three words:
Courage. Content. Clicks.
Courage to to find your voice, back yourself and build a brand that is true to you and your values. Turn up the volume on your beliefs and purpose, and strengthen that courage muscle to create a business with intent and impact.
Create content that connects with people who believe what you believe and moves them to act. Don't waste time producing content just for the sake of it. Use what you know to your best advantage and serve your clients in a way that is meaningful to you and them.
Earn clicks from the right people, at the right time for the right reasons. Ultimately you want to grow your business right? Create systems and processes for giving people a reason to connect with you and convert to clients.
WHO'S IT FOR?
We've run this course more than a dozen times with hundreds of face-to-face participants across Australia. We know first hand what business owners, creative entrepreneurs, marketing professionals, content creators, agency account managers and social media community growers need and want.
The big things are: overcoming overwhelm, getting clear about messaging and markets, crafting great content, gaining and keeping momentum, achieving real business outcomes, and doing it all with purpose and passion. Sounds like you right?
Now, we're bringing the best things we've taught (and learned!) to the rest of the world through our online course.

So here's how it will work.
- We will provide support and responses to comments within the #ContentKin course platform.

There you can tap into the collective knowledge of hundreds of business, who also love to share what they know.
Take your seat in our virtual classroom full of curious, creative, wholehearted entrepreneurial types just like you. To get an idea of how we like to do things, take a peek at our real life workshop.
We've delivered this workshop and ecourse to hundreds students online and in intimate group settings across Australia. Now we're inviting you, where ever you are to join us. Here's what other kin have said about working with us.
The ContentKin e-course was inspiring and informative - and prompted really useful, deeper-than-usual reflection about what I do and how/why I do it. Each time I sat down with the course, I came away brimful of new ideas and tools. Not just for work but for life!
Amanda, New Zealand
I can't begin to describe the all the juicy knowledge I've gained from Kylie & Binny! #ContentKin was presented in a variety of really accessible ways and broke down the social language so newbies like me could understand. My business isn't my full time profession but I now have a greater confidence in my brand as well as producing, planning and monitoring my social content. I would highly highly highly recommend Kylie & Binny and #ContentKin - thanks ladies!
Dale, Corrigan & Dale

I could not have done it without your #contentkin course. Thank you so much for doing such amazing work Kylie & Binny. Now I have buckets of work with my client doing beautiful content!
THANK YOU both for an amazing course. I really got a lot out of this and am implementing as much as possible for my own business already. You guys are awesome sauce! I feel a little more structured in how I run my business and I desperately needed it. I would do your course in a heartbeat in the future and have been recommending you guys to EVERYONE!!! LOVED EVERY MINUTE! Thank you thank you lovely girls.
Jayde Leeder, Little Paper Lane
From my initial contact with Kylie Lewis about her Social Media workshop, to attending on the day, I found her energy and enthusiasm for social media and community absolutely infectious. Both Kylie and Belinda shared such valuable advice from their gathered experience, and their skills and knowledge were presented in a fun and thought provoking manner. I would love to attend any of their additional workshops in the future and can’t wait to get to work on Monday to put everything I learnt to use!
Georgy Bromley Marketing Co-ordinator, Armadilo & Co
A wealth of information was shared with both Kylie and Bin just so inspiring and having a natural knack for really challenging your current ideas and beliefs, whilst providing a big dose of inspiration to make you feel very empowered to walk away and start creating and curating awesome content for your business that is relevant and that your customers can relate too!

Fabulous, eye opening, courage boosting, motivational and awesomeness! Regardless of your level of experience in business or marketing, this workshop is invaluable!
Mary Bills Design and Creative Fairygodmother for South Australia, Amuse Creative
I loved thinking about the ‘why’ – it was a great opportunity to dig deep to explore the reasons behind why we do what we do – and how that underpins what should/can share with our online community.
Tara Donnelly, Investor Communications Manager, The Hunger Project
Kylie & Bin know their stuff! I found #contentkin to get my scattered personal and business social media site on the road to an orderly, planned and sustainable part of my life.
Shelley Collins, Owner & Creative Director, The Galerie Fitzroy
Kylie and Bin take the over-whelmingness of social media and the expectations that go with it, to a place where it could be broken down into simple, step by step concepts.
