Happy monday guys! My weekly business posts targeted aspiring influencers and brands who work with influencers, seem to be a bit of a succes! Yay, it honestly makes me happy that I can pass on some of my knowledge to others. This week, however, I figured that it would be time to learn from someone else. More specifically from some of the full time influencers I follow myself. They have from the beginning been a huge inspiration to me and other influencers in Denmark. Not only do they create awesome content, they also manages to show others that being an influencer can be done, and it is a full time job that requires a huge effort! So, in this week, I will uncover the one big assumption most people have about influencers. That it’s fun, easy and relaxing! But is it really that? And does the salary match the work they put into it? We’ll figure that out today when I ask Mie, Michelle and Sarah – All amazing girls and business ladies that you should pay a visit to!
Hi again guys! This is my part 2 answer on the initial question a ready was so kind to ask: What is an influencer and how do they make money. If you have read the article where I cover what an influencer is, please click here(unless you don’t want to read it then don’t).
There ar many ways for influencers to make money depending on which social media channels they use. I will try to cover most of them, but if you have anything to add, please add a comment.Sponsored posts/videos. This is probably the most common way for influencers to make money across their social media channels. It can be done in many ways, either by incorporating the brand into something (kinda like product placement) or by dedicating 100% of the content to the brand. Here the influencer’s finest job is to be super selective and only say yes to brands that fit into the universe of the influencer. Doing so and incorporating the brand into the univers in a way that doesn’t annoy the audience, is called “Native advertising”.
I got a question the day after I posted this update about me going independant as an influencer. The question was quite specific: What is an influencer? I honestly understand now why that question came and I figured it would be good to spread some clarity by writing a blog post about it!
So, here we are. It’s the first of March which to most people probably equals the first day of spring according to the calendar year (except if you are from Australia, then the season is the other way arund, right?!) but to me it’s the first day with out a job. Yes, I quit my job about a month ago in order to become a full time influencer, content creator or whatever you want to call it. I find it very scary to say the least but for a long time I’ve felt that if I didn’t do it now, I wouldn’t be able to do it. Ever. The thing is, Mark and I have no real obligations, we have a cheap rent and now have the knowledge to turn what I love doing the most into a business.
