One of the most common ways to make money from social media is through business collaborations and paid sponsorship deals.
As a social media influencer, you will market yourself to gain the interest and confidence of major corporations or brands.
In return for money, incentives, or freebies, you can then promote their goods and/or services.
However, it is much more difficult today to ask for a brand partnership than in the past.
Nearly everyone’s on social media, as you can see. If you are trying to stand out, the over-saturation can be daunting really.
Online consumers are often generally negative towards social media influencers.
Since they can hide behind faceless accounts and usernames, they have no qualms about insulting others and making hurtful comments.
It’s always funny when someone asks you to be an influencer.
It’s weird to say, “Yeah, I’m an influencer.” But, that’s the widely accepted term these days.
Being an influencer means to post, frankly, material that inspires others to take action.
The action may simply be to learn about a new product, pick up a few spots for their own travels, or make a real purchase / conversion.
It means that people will listen to you about what you think, how you feel, and the suggestions you make.
Personally, that’s why I’m only collaborating with brands that I really love and value. I can’t imagine posting a product / service / company post that I wouldn’t use otherwise.
You should do your research prior to sending a pitch to a certain business or brand.
Find out if they are actually open to working with influencers and if they have had any altercations in the past.
Check for blogs, blog posts, and online interviews about this company or brand. Find out as much about the people who run the company as you can.
This way, you can arm yourself with the right expertise and tailor your pitch to your needs in case you work with the influencers.
