ShopHer Media – Social Media Influencer
I have recently received a few emails and facebook messages from readers whom have started their own blogs, wanting to start their own blogs or just really intrigued to know how it all works. Many have asked questions from how to start, to how to make money, to how to be successful, and more. One of the first things I tell everyone is that you have to start blogging consistently for 3-6 months. Some just want to do social media influencing which is fine but you still need to be consistent. After you are consistent you can apply to affiliate programs (usually just for bloggers), Influence Marketing Agencies (social media ok), Ad networks (social media ok) and more such as sponsorship, ambassadors, etc. Affiliate programs is where you advertise a sale and earn a commission. Influence Marketing Agency is where you post about a company and are paid based on your influence worth. Your influence worth depends on the amount of followers, email subscribers, engagement on social media and more. Ad networks are ads that appear on your blog and are paid when readers click on the ad or when you are paid when the ad is played during a youtube video and more.
One of my favorite Influence Marketing Agencies to work for is ShopHer Media where you can work with brands such as Kellogg’s, Famous Footwear, Chili’s, P&G Everyday, and more. Most of the Influence Marketing Agency campaigns will be spelled out exactly what you are to do such as a blog post, social media post, with how many words (most is more than 300), pay structure etc. These guidelines are great but it is you as an influencer to really make the campaign the best it can be by being creative, fun, relatable and realistic.
We are close to a new year with many already thinking of goals for next year. If your goals include being a Social Media Influencer, sign up with ShopHer Media to apply for influence campaigns. If you are wanting to really start blogging, being an influencer is very important but stay true to who you are and your beliefs.
