How To Kickstart A Social Media Business

Learn How To Create A Social Media Management Business From Scratch

Does this sound like you?

  • "I want to make extra money, especially during the holidays."

  • "I'm afraid of the recession and getting laid off.”

  • "I want to be my own boss."

  • "I love social media, and want to earn a living while spending time on social media.”

  • "I want to learn new skills." 

  • "I want to change careers and work from home.”

  • "I need a job with flexible hours because of XYZ."

What if things could be different?

How amazing would it be if you could schedule your life and fit work into it instead of fitting your life into your work schedule?

Launching your own business is scary. But I'm here to help you with this. I'm able to travel, take time off for long lunches, go to doctor appointments without worrying about missing meetings, and honestly just take control back of my time. And that's all because I run a social media marketing business where I choose my clients, set boundaries, and provide results that benefit my clients working when I'm able to.

How amazing would it be if you could work from anywhere?

Have you ever wanted to visit friends or family in a different place, but couldn't because of work? Or work while you travel the world without losing money or being limited to 14 vacation days? As a social media business owner, you're able to do just that.

How amazing would it be if you could have all of the steps to start your business with the correct legal steps, the best ways to find clients, and how to give your clients a good return on investment?

This course is truly designed for you based on my experiences. I've spent countless hours trying to figure out how to launch my business and run it, while learning about new social media marketing strategies that could help your clients to want to keep buying your services.

If you’re finding yourself nodding along to all this, you’re not alone…

On average, global internet users spend 2 hours and 27 minutes on social media per day.

At The Thriving Lotus, we believe social media marketing is a crucial skill for any business to thrive. One thousand engaged followers is a lot more powerful and valuable than 10,000 not-engaged followers.

But large social followings don't automatically equate to increased revenue. Focus on quality over quantity for your clients and they will reap the rewards.

If you're still not convinced that you could become a social media manager, launch your own business, and take control of your time again, you definitely need to keep reading about this course.

Which is why I’m soooo excited to introduce:

Kickstart A Social Media Business

Join the intro to social media business program to start your business before the end of year!

We founded The Thriving Lotus Academy because we believe in empowering women to start their own businesses to take back control of their time.

Posting Reels and TikToks will only get you so far, so we created this in-depth course with the steps our founder, Katlyn, took to transition from social media marketing in professional sports to $16,000 months within a year.

What is this course?

This is a mini course designed to help you get started with your social media marketing business.

In this course, you will learn tangible skills that I used to create my own social media marketing business after spending 11 years in professional sports.

Are there guarantees?

Unfortunately, I can’t promise any guarantees that you will gain XX in revenue each month or that you will pick up clients.

What I can promise, is that this course was created from my experience and uses the steps that helped me get to $16,000 months within the first year.

Can I contact my course instructor with questions?

Katlyn offers one-to-one coaching for a fee.

Soon, we will launch a members-only forum called The Social Collective where you can post if you need feedback or to troubleshoot something for a client, stay on top of industry trends, find job leads, and post questions about social media marketing.

How do I access my course?

Please refer to the email that you receive when you signed up for the course.

If at any time you have trouble accessing the course, please contact

Do I get access to the entire course at once?

Yes! You will receive access to the entire course when you join the program. We do recommend to take the course in stages because there is a LOT of information to take in.

Can I get a refund?

We are determined to make sure you are happy with your purchase — whether it be a template or an e-course. If you are not satisfied with your e-course purchase, please contact us within 30 calendar days.

How long will it take to complete the course?

This is completely up to you! I designed this course to be on-demand so you are not at the mercy of someone else’s schedule.

How long do I have access for?

You will have lifetime access to this course, including any future updates. Take your time or speed through it. Whatever works best for you.

Why should I take this course over others?

A lot of courses (of all categories) are created by people who claim to know what they're doing or who have barely done the service they're teaching and the bulk of their income is actually from course sales.

The opposite is true here. I've been a social media manager for 12 years. I've managed global brands and small business brands. I've cultivated communities of over one million people. And I've successfully gone from full-time corporate to full-time entrepreneur. I simply want to help women like you feel empowered to launch your own social media business. But it's more than just empowerment — I'm teaching what I've learned over the past decade-plus, and making sure that you have the necessary steps to launch your business.

While $97 isn't a cheap investment, it's also a lot cheaper than many course creators will offer for the amount of value. I truly believe you will recoup your investment incredibly quickly when launching your business with the knowledge from the course.

Let's Recap...

Before You Go...

After eleven years in professional sports leading social media marketing strategies for global brands, I decided it was time to be my own boss and find flexibility with my schedule. To put it simply: I was burnt out from being online 24/7.

I couldn’t find an affordable ecourse that would give me the steps to start my agency. I failed (and failed a lot) as I learned how to grow my freelancing business to $16,000 months. But I felt so alone during this process.

That’s why I created The Thriving Lotus Academy. It’s hard to take the plunge to start your business on your own, so I want to help you.

“How To Start A Social Media Business” is just the first step. Soon we will launch The Social Lounge, a resource for social media managers (both in the gig economy and working corporate jobs). In the new year, we’ll have the follow-up course to “How To Start A Social Media Business.”

I can’t wait to bring you lots of valuable information and help you feel empowered to launch your online business.

Lets Thrive,
