Biggest Influencer Job To Date - R12 000: Bring It On!
Being a part of Wealthy Affiliate is an incredible experience - the things that I have learned here have made such an impact on me.
One of the main ways that I earn money from my business is through being an online influencer. Many members here at WA have asked me what does it mean to be an online influencer and how do you become one?
Just to clarify - as affiliate marketers we are all online influencers. We use our websites to influence our readers to buy the products that we promote on our websites. I do affiliate marketing too on my websites by the way.
The difference with online influencer jobs is that the company pays me directly to review their products or to mention their products on my website and on my social media channels. They give me the product that they want me to review and I get paid too which is awesome.
So today it has been confirmed that I have just landed my biggest online influencer job - I am going to be paid R12 0000 (approximately $840) in total to write a few posts and share them on my social media channels.
While Wealthy Affiliate does not directly teach you how to land online influencer jobs, you will learn how to market your website and how to build your authority as a blogger - there is absolutely nothing stopping you from marketing yourself as an online influencer as well as an affiliate marketer!
I started by simply writing about some of the local companies and products that I like and over time I had companies contact me directly and ask me how it works to advertise their products.
I now have a media kit and a rate card for different types of promotions I offer and I get regular enquiries from companies.
