How I Make Money As A Social Media Influencer | Making Money Online

So just about two years ago, I put out a article titled “, How to be a style, blogger.”, Definitely recommend checking it out if you’re interested in getting Into this kind of thing, So I rereaded it before doing this article and think that the advice two years later still holds up really well Now, in that article, I talk about the need for defining a reason for Wanting to do what you do And one of the many reasons That I list is to make money, so I don’t take any kind of stance on whether that’s good or bad.

In fact, I think I say that no reason is more or less noble than the other. So two years later, though, I’m going to take a little Bit different, look at it come at it from a little Bit different perspective To me the opportunity to make money doing something like this is a benefit. It’s a benefit of all the work we put in. It’s a benefit of all of the Thought that we put into it It’s a benefit that speaks to the fact that over the last seven years, we’ve created something that people have found lasting Value in that has a purpose and something that has Had a measurable impact on peoples’ lives, The coin of the realm in This space is authenticity And you cannot create a Community around something and I’m talking about a dedicated, lasting and genuinely engaged community, if you’re only doing Something to make money, People will see right through that they’ll see you for who you are And it’s a charade.

That’s Honestly impossible to keep up for any length of time, So that’s my take on it as someone who’s being doing. This for quite a while and who’s seen a lot of Things change over time And the people who have Quote unquote: “ survived” and are thriving. Are the ones who really do have something to say have something to offer? And have something of value to contribute to the conversation So little bit of a tangent Little bit of a rant And for me a necessary prelude, To the topic of this article, which is how He Spoke Style, makes money, So He Spoke Style has four Different revenue, streams, brand partnerships, advertising affiliate and the HSS Shop, And what I’m going to do next is walk you through each One and how it works Brand partnerships, So brand partnerships are Where a specific brand or a brand through Their agency reaches out to collaborate to produce content.

It could be for a specific Campaign they have going on, It could be for general awareness. In every case, though, It is a way for a brand to get in front of an Audience that you have built – and that is specific to you Different brands – look For different things and have different KPIs or Key performance indicators based on whatever their goal is So some are looking for reach. Some are looking for impressions.

Some want engagement, Some want conversion Or it could be a combination. Of all of those things, So the amount you can make On a brand partnership depends on a few things. It depends on the budget. The brand has to work with for marketing. It depends largely on the Size of your audience and, to some extent, a demonstrated history of producing impact and Results for brands in the past. So if a brand paid you X amount of dollars to do a project that was Focused on conversion and you didn’t sell a Single unit for them chances are that they’re not going to work with you in the future.

The most important part About partnering with a brand is to make sure that the Partnership makes sense for you and that it makes sense for your brand. So it’s important that you Have a specific point of view and a sense of what it Is that you stand, for, We are very selective at He Spoke Style about the kinds of Brands that we work with, For example, over the last few years, we’ve had long-term Partnerships with some fantastic read brands, including A.

Lange & Söhne, Vacheron, Constantin and Jaeger-LeCoultre. Some read brands, though let’s call them fashion. Read brands have reached out to partner with us and we have always politely Passed on those opportunities because they don’t make sense for us, It’s not something that I would personally use It’s not the level of product I’m comfortable promoting And there’s been a lot of money. We said no to in that space, But it’s more important.

To only work with brands that we truly believe In because, once again, authenticity is the coin of the realm, How on earth could you Take someone seriously that in one sponsored post or article says IWC is the best read brand ever and then in the very next Sponsored post or article says, MVMT or Daniel Wellington or NOVE is the best read brand ever That’s a rhetorical question. My point is that saying no to things may, in the short term, keep You from making a few dollars, but to me you will have much more success if you build something Around a set of values and play a longer game in that sense, Brand partnerships are currently the largest single source of Income for He Spoke Style, which is why I spent so Much time talking about it And also they are the most Creatively, satisfying way that we make money Next advertising, So He Spoke Style – makes money through ads that you see on the website as well as ads that you see here on the YouTube blog, We don’t sell the space on the website directly to advertisers ourselves.

We work with an ad management company that fills that inventory for us And then with YouTube. We just enable the Articles for monetization and Google takes care of the rest. I am not an expert in how Revenue is calculated, Though there is something Called CPM or cost per mille, that is a metric that advertisers use And then with YouTube. I believe it’s a combination, Of number of views, as well as total, read time, So we make a decent amount on ads, not as much as we do.

With brand partnerships, but it’s a really nice source of passive income that we have – And this is one of the Reasons that when I talk about building a business in this Space that I say it’s important to have a variety of options: In your portfolio out there, If you’re putting all of Your eggs in one basket you’re potentially missing Out on a revenue stream that you wouldn’t otherwise have That’s.

Why, although a Website isn’t super sexy to a brand partner. At this point, most brands are interested Mostly in YouTube or Instagram, The fact that we built and Still maintain a website that a lot of people read Opens up this opportunity that we would completely miss Out on, if we didn’t do that, Third way He Spoke Style makes money is through affiliate. Marketing Affiliate marketing is When you promote a product or give a link to a Product and when someone buys that product or clicks on The link and buys a product you get a small commission on that sale.

This can be done directly with a brand. For example, we work with Dapper Woodworks this way we work with Stubbs and Wootton this way, Or there are several services That sort of centralize everything like rewardStyle ShopStyle, so you’re not having to deal with each individual advertiser yourself. This is a smaller revenue. Stream for He Spoke Style, but again like ads. It does create this sort of passive income that continues to build On itself over time, It is more time consuming to Do to put the links together and search for everything, but I view it as a small way.

That I’m able to get a little something back for the Effort that I put into it. Finally, we have the He Spoke Style Shop, So we launched this Just over two years ago – And it was something that we wanted to do – to create a world around What we were doing and to be able to offer our readers fans, followers and viewers direct Access to some of the things that we really loved and That we really believed in E-commerce is a really tough business with the small staff that we have here, It’s been basically impossible to scale up beyond where we have it now, but again it is a nice source of income.

That we have coming in Now there are some really exciting things that are going to be happening. In the shop very soon We are going to be partnering With Michael Andrews to offer an exclusive Made to measure service and other things as well. It’s pretty awesome. It’s been years in the making and we’re very excited for the potential that it presents to us to grow. And to scale our business, So that’s it! That’s how He Spoke Style makes money Brand partnerships, advertising Affiliate marketing and the He Spoke Style Shop.

Micro Influencer & Money : how & how much we’re making from social media!

I just want to speak about the topic that I Just talked about on my latest post on Instagram, which is making money on Social media, how small influencers make money? How influencers in general Make money to help you understand better, but also I want to get back to what I Was talking about in my post, I don’t know why it’s a very taboo topic.

I don’t Know there’s a lot of hiding, I feel, and I don’t know why I’m going to try To be as transparent as I can, because I know that some of you are curious and Are just wondering how it’s possible to make money on social media? This is the Topic of this article today After you’ve readed this article, I would love to have Your opinion in the comments, I would love to know what you think, if your Opinion changed after reading the whole article (, french speaking, ).

Sorry, I was just explaining to my French audience. That they can answer in French. Alright, just know that everything I’m going to talk About is really from my own experience. I am not talking for anyone else, Although I know from experience and meeting other bloggers that they have the same Experience as me, especially as a small influencer, I know I have twenty Five thousand followers, which is huge – that’s just how we are defined by the Industry and by brands, knowing that a lot of influencers have millions of Followers between 10,000 and hundred thousand you’re considered rather small Influencer So there’s basically four main ways to make money on social media.

As a blogger or influencer, The first one is selling your Own products, So a lot of influencers sell ebooks it’s the case. For me, I sell Ebooks on my website about a topic that I’m passionate about Some bloggers have developed products. Some bloggers have developed Their own brands, after having built their community And honestly, I feel, like This is the nicest most authentic way of making a living Of social media, because it’s really a project that you built from scratch and That you’re so passionate about And you’re basically investing a lot of time.

Into it and you’re basically, like a, I, don’t know a business owner and in the Future, that’s one thing that I would love to do It’s way easier after having A community to have a successful brand, because the awareness of the brand is Already there and that’s kind of one of the hardest thing for a brand to have Sales, so that’s helping for sure. Not all the bloggers have sustainable or Authentic brands, just letting you know that a lot of online retail Are a bit suspicious, I’m not going to call names and stuff, but just be careful from where you’re buying your products, The other stream of Income is also organic.

Basically, when you see ads on the side of a blog and When you see ads just before a article or in the article like little pop-ups, these Are basically a contract? Okay, I’m not going to go into details because I’m not Sure about this, but it’s a contract between the advertiser and Google And Obviously, the more the article has view for YouTube. For example, the more the ad Will be seen and we are paid by Google after from a split amount.

I mean it. Depends of the number of views and also the engagement rate of the Blog, If that blog, has a lot of comments or likes on the articles, So Monthly, we can get a check or just a bank transfer from Google. The third Way of income – okay, this article is going to be longer than Ten minutes, The third stream of income is brand partnerships, sponsored Post or sponsored articles So for this, the brand will send the influencer a product To try out and the influencer will talk about it and promote it in a post, a Story, a YouTube, article etc And the influencer is paid for the post and gets A free product as well to try it out J’ai oublié de dire que quand un contenu est sponsorisé l’influencer doit le mentionner avec # ad; # sponsorisé; c’est la loi, Aussi si les produits sont reçus gratuitement; c’est bien de le préciser En revanche encore, plein d’influencer ne Respectent pas ces règles et parfois les marques sont prêtes, à payer plus chères pour que l’influenceur ne mentionnent pas que.

C’Est payé pour que ça paraisse plus authentique..Ce qui est dingue. This is where it gets a little tricky. Depending on which influencer you’re following and what their value is, Because it’s very tempting to accept a lot of product and accept a lot of deals. And make a lot of posts, I personally get a lot of emails and requests for Partnerships – it’s very tempting to say yes to everything, although it’s not the Goal for me personally, I want to try the product.

I want to make sure the product Is great I have received products in the past that were not great, so I Decided not to do the post and not being paid about it. The brand is always aware: Of that, before sending me products, and so everything that I talk about, is Always something that I recommend for you, but some influencers may not be As picky about that And then the the fourth final way of Earning money on social media is affiliate programs or being Sponsored and being paid monthly by brands, basically the more you’re helping The brand to make sales the more you earn money, So this is done through discount Codes, not all of the discount codes, are affiliated codes, but Sometimes they are, Which means every time a follower uses your code to make a Purchase the influencer gains money out of it Like a small percentage out of it.

So this is how it’s done basically, the four ways: majority of ways of making Money Now in case, you really have no idea how everything works. What is an Influencer, how come they have partnerships with brands and stuff? I Just want to touch on that really quickly, so why do brands and us Influencers collaborate, It is because, as an influencer, we have built a community Over the years, we have a certain amount of followers people that trust, hopefully What we are saying, what we are recommending and brands see that as a Really good way to make sale, it’s a sale tunnel just another way of Making sales before it was a lot of TV.

You turn on your TV. You see an ad you Want to purchase that thing now you just turn on social media. You see a product That your favorite blogger recommends and you want to purchase it And why do Influencers make those partnerships well mainly because of money honestly, We are doing a lot of free content, some people – sometimes it’s a part-time job – For influencers, but we spend a lot a lot a lot, a lot of time providing free Content, that’s like free articles, free tips, things that you could pay people For nutritional tips recipes anything else, you know yoga tips, Anything that I’m talking about I’m doing it for free, I’m doing it because I Love it all that work has created a community and that’s (, collaborations ), also a way for us.

To make money and to continue to make content that we love to do At the same. Time I want you to understand that not all partnerships are shady or just Money based kind of thing, a lot of my partnerships are actually me being Really really happy to recommend a brand, because I like what they’re doing I Think it’s sustainable and I want to make the world a better place. If I have The opportunity to promote a vegan ethical, sustainable brand and be paid For that like why, wouldn’t I do it? You know Now, let’s get into the subject that Everyone wants to know how much people make out of social media.

How much I make Out of social media, I’m going to tell you everything, because again I have nothing. To hide, I don’t think it’s something that you should know, because yeah you’re Not going to ask a singer how much money they make or an artist how much money they make, but if you’re really interested that’s how it works. Okay, So I’m just Going to give you the example of an Instagram post, otherwise it gets a bit More complicated because there’s different rates and all but the majority Of the time on Instagram, the market price for a post is 1 % of the number followers.

So if you have a hundred thousand follower your price per Post will be a thousand dollars if you have a million. Your price per post will Be a thousand a hat sorry, ten hundred ten thousand, that’s like so Much that I can’t even say it, if you have ten thousand, your price will be a Hundred That’s like a really basic rate that most people have it’s the rate that I have so I ask for 250 per post for myself, what makes it more or less Depending to the market price is the engagement rate of the influencer Just quickly on what that is.

The engagement is the Number of likes comments, shares of a post, so every time that you like a post Comment on a post or share a post, it increases the engagement and the Engagement rate of the blogger, So just so you know, if you like, the person That’s really really cool because you’re supporting that person. But if you don’t Like that person just so you know that you’re also helping them, because Basically, the higher your engagement rate is which brands have access to Those statistic the higher you can ask for money, obviously, because some people Have 10,000 followers and have a very, very low engagement rate? Some have 10,000 and have a very, very high engagement rate.

That means people Commenting people liking people being really really engaged into the community.. The brand will be ready to pay more money for that person. Obviously so just Do you know This is also why a lot of influencers, like myself, I’m not going to Hide anything again, every time we post, we do a story about the new post, for you, To check it out for you to like for you to comment for you to engage because it Is helping us and it’s just a free thing for you: it takes like a second and it Really does help, So I’m not sure you were aware of this, but every time you comment, Also under YouTube article, you like a YouTube article, it really does help you Have no idea it helps to support the blog or the blog that you’re Following to provide you more free content, if that makes sense, Okay, this Article is definitely not a ten minute article, but I just want to say everything: So it’s clear.

The last thing that I want to touch on is the price I Know a lot of people are amazed at how much money we make on social media for One post, let’s say for my example: 250 euro for one post, seems ridiculously High, it’s not that high compared to the industry, but I understand myself: 250 Euro, I know that it’s it’s not negligible amount of money, but know that A post requires a lot of time, a lot of effort.

It’s not just a photo. I mean It depends for which blogger, but for me a post is in between 2 hours, 30 and 6 Hours of work, first of all, sometimes it’s really struggle to get Parcels, especially in Paris, so that’s a lot of time. You know losing time. To get the parcel and stuff, then I mean the story: the creativity, how you want to post what kind of photo you’re going for all this Research process takes time because you don’t want to be like a copycat of Someone and you just don’t want to have a like very basic photo, at least not for Me Then, taking the photo takes time.

Editing the photo takes time. Writing the Caption trying the product because I never receive a product and post right, Away, I always take time to try the product out, so that also requires Time And even just that it might seem quite expensive still but just know, That brands don’t just pay for the content; they also pay for the community. That we have built – and we have built a community with all the other free Content that we’ve provided the community with – and this is like the Majority of our time, for me, it’s like 95 % of my time, working for free and So it’s kind of normal that I ask for a bigger amount of money for the Small amount that I’m sponsored for because the brand actually does pay for The amount of people that will see their ad, if that makes sense, So I know you want to know how much money I make right now being really Transparent with you, I make between four hundred and a thousand euros a month out.

Of search media not included my ebook, not including my ebook, but just The brand sponsorships that I have – I don’t have a lot some months. I have None and some month I have more, but I’m extremely picky, with what I’ve chosen to promote and that’s all So again, this article is not a Complaint On the post, I mentioned that I was really exhausted of brands that do Not pay smaller influencer and just want to send free products, not to mention Most of the time brands do actually have budget and are ready to pay mainstream.

Bigger influencer a lot more money because they’re more visible and Especially sustainable brands that pay a fair salary to their employees like why Do they not pay us a fair salary again, this article was just purely educative and Informative and I don’t want to start a big debate on that, but at the same time I really hope that you learned something or maybe, if you’re a bigger influencer You learned, what’s going on for smaller influencers, that it’s not easy every day, Although we are working the same quality than bigger influencers or if you’re a Brand actually – and this article makes you think I know I’ve received some comments.

Saying that I shouldn’t complain, because I’m so lucky to have that job and I have Not complained about my job and I know I’m lucky but at the same time it’s not Luck, it’s it’s just work, I’m sorry! But it’s work. I have decided to have this Activity as my job and you could too it’s just having your own business or Being self-employed takes a lot of dedication takes a lot of Work, I’m not saying that if you work in an office you’re not working a lot but It’s just something that people don’t really realize.

There’s a lot of work. Behind the scenes, a lot of dedication, a lot of investmen t I’ve lost a lot of money, I mean some month. I don’t make money at all. It’s Tough like having a small business if you’re a brand too, and you can’t afford Paying influencers, I know what it is, but you know at some point you have to start And you have to think what you want. What’s your priority, investing in Influencers may be a really good idea in this digital age.

So thank you for Listening sorry, if that was very long again, let me know in the comments now that you Know that it really helps the engagement of this article. Let me know what you think: What you thought before, what’s your opinion on it, do you think that Influencers should get money, or do you think that we should just not complain? Or what do you think I would love to know your opinion? You can share this Article also with people around you, thank you so much for listening.

I hope to see You soon, my blog

How To Be a Social Media “Influencer” #askjadeshow

Welcome back to my blog! What’s up! Thank you! So much for being here, they were going to call you guys up. This is the asteroid show where I answered your deepest darkest questions on social media. First caller is Charlotte and I’m getting ready as were chatting.

I wanted to be, as, like you know, real as possible, I’m a busy Cal and I’m just doing my ostracion as I’m putting my makeup on. So it’s like a multi, I’m some multi-level tasking entrepreneur, so we’re going to go with the first caller. Thank you. So much reading it we’re going to jump right. I think I have a microphone hello, hello, hello, hi. This is Jade girl to ask Jade, show hey Charlotte. How are you we’re doing amazing? So we got the we got the viewers here.

So, just let us know who you are what you do where were you from? I am from Scotland, I yeah. What do you do? What’s your? What’s your profession, I guess, what’s your, what are you currently doing on social media? Have a kind of like type thing? Oh I’m, taking at your account beautiful, foodie bloggers. What do you think is? What’s your current problem, how can I help you um? I just kind of wondered how to like insert more of myself into X.

Obviously, right now that’s kind of just like a lot of like food pictures but yeah, I kind of want to strengthen like personal side of it. So I got, I guess so. Maybe are you feeling, like you, get a lot more interaction and people find more value from food pictures? Not you. So you feel like if you post a picture. It’s like no one gives a shit. Okay, okay! I that’s what that’s a real problem, so how you do it like props to you.

Thank you. Well, let me let me take a look, so is YouTube something you’re currently working Harden or not as much you haven’t, sat down and filmed a YouTube article at all. I do Instagram lives or have you done anything with like face to face story? Interaction? Maybe you know what I think you should do. I think my biggest ever like tip for just starting to be like you know, trying to get comfortable with a camera, is really hard.

I’m telling you it’s like not like. I love the camera. It’s actually really weird, because no one’s fucking there, and sometimes if you go online right, if you ever like the do live, have you? Okay? If you have you done alive before? Okay, it’s just really awkward, but no one talks back and you’re just like looking for questions and no one’s asking anything. So how do you make it less awkward? So my biggest thing – I think I want you to try – is the key of being less awkward is called preparation.

So let me make it a little more less raw raw. I think what I would do for you is going on your DMS and whether you answer every single one or don’t for the next like leave it up for 24 hours to make people ask you, questions start the first couple articles slash you want to like segment Yourself inside just make it a Q & A do heavy Q & A because, what’s going to happen, is the reason why people don’t are not as interesting as Charlotte the person and more Charlotte the food? It’s because you don’t haven’t given them a reason to really care about you as a person.

For example, if you say give me a Q & A let me answer your questions and you do face to face interaction. They’re going to want to read your YouTube article. What I would do is, if you don’t know what to say, make people ask you. The second thing is you should try something called. It’s called like the 60 60 minute challenge. I think it might help you so basically a little bit. Okay, are you ready? So I actually I do this for so many Oh kind of like my artist friends like people who make music cuz some people just don’t wan na fucking.

I don’t know why they’re an artist but they don’t wan na make a song. So I try to help them with how to be more comfortable, putting stuff down on paper. So for you, I would say: set a timer 60 minutes, whatever you film in that 60 minutes, you have to post it, whether it’s stupid or whether it’s good you have to so. This really gets your mind to kind of be okay. With imperfection good luck, charlie, I hope you crush it by the way.

Send me a DM after you crush it, and I love to know how it goes hey. This is JT on the ask Jay. True hey what is up girl toss? What’s your name where you from my name is dope peace? That’s a beautiful name of what the heck! I love it. What do you? What are you clearly which would pretty clearly up I’m about to uploading article? What do you do on social media? Okay, that’s a great question because right now I’m not really sure I am trying, but I feel like they don’t try to become influenced it just happen.

So I’m just trying to figure out and navigate do like being youtuber in if I’m even a youtuber. Yet because I have what do you think makes someone an influencer an influencer? Basically, I want to change this like later on, as I become an experiencer myself, but I either right now I feel like an influencer or someone who can equation can carry on and it’s their word or like what they say about certain things.

It gets carried on. A lot of people are reading them, they have envy or they have just people have their eye on them. Okay, people these piece weeks. How about this? How do you measure an influencer? That’s a better question. I feel like you’re like no, like you know. How would you measure someone like, for example, like how would you measure how influential someone is there you go, it’s a hard one think about it.

Well, I’m thinking right now is like oh, okay, tell me more. What does that explain it to like a five-year-old saying, peace? How do you measure influence go wow? You might do something great right now, but not everyone can see it well. How would you measure your success if someone is okay, honey, mm-hmm? I know a lot of youtubers action, don’t make money, so those are the stupid utility you’re supposed to make money for, of course, I think about it like this there’s nothing wrong with money.

It’s just about how much time you’re dedicated. If you have all your money made from YouTube, your hashtag dedicated that’s your job, so I feel like people who are half-assing YouTube and don’t make money it’s because they don’t know they’re, not actually 100 % committed, which is not evil. I think people kind of tie grounds to hardly with money, so I mean like. Let me know: do you really want to quit your job and do you two full-time one, do if you’re starting small and you haven’t, made any money yet and like he’s being consistent or you’re trying to rescue like? Where did that? Please you what’s your goal to make money right in what yeah time it’s time holding you Matt’s, not enough time, not enough money to do what you want or not enough self-confidence.

/! It’s yourself holding back! This is what I would do. Peace, I’m going to help you out with your YouTube career when you’re, when you’re small, you do the following things: you just test a lot of shit you’re just going to try something and you’re trying to do what people want to do, which is make content. So what you first of all the first thing, this first step to be YouTube famous, is you need a frickin be like through the roof? Confident, if you like, talking to camera, make that like become just best friends, what’s going to happen? Is people only follow people that have what they want if you’re not confident enough, if you don’t show them that you are in love with this more than they aren’t they’re not going to follow you, I think too many people realize they’re scared about posting.

You literally, if you can’t, if you’re scared of posting a article, no one wants a fucking, follow you, because everyone in their own home just are is insecure. The reason why youtubers or success will succeed is because either they’re extremely confidant, camera and people kind of want that in you know kind of embedded in them. So they read you more. I think that’s what you need to start with start with a little bit of confidence.

This might mean taking a trip to the park and just kind of being real with yourself doing, a really full beat look to make you feel better whatever you start with yourself. First and then what I would do next is don’t give a shit and do my favorite technique called top ten of top ten. So this is something I haven’t cinema youtube yet, but what you can do right now? Peace go to your top ten favorite youtubers.

Go to their most popular articles, take ten of their most popular articles and recreate it in your own words. So then you have a hundred unlimited. You have a hundred unlimited articles that you know is proven and works. Okay, and what’s the problem with that? What’s going to help you’re going to you’re going to get sued, so something more like what are you afraid of with someone getting upset? No, no one gives a shit like no one.

You have to understand you’re, not copying, there’s a difference between okay, I think imitation is horrible, like copying their words or style, it’s horrible. What you can do is steal, there’s a book. Actually I want you to read it search steal like an artist. What it’s basically saying this book is saying: you want to steal like an artist which means you don’t take from one creator, you take from ten different creators and you just take the ones that you really like the pieces that works.

You don’t want to imitate anyone. Imitation is all flattery. I do agree with that. Just don’t take from one person take from multiple sources. That’s not stealing! That’s called interpretation, alright got it! Thank you love. Your piece have a good day. Hello, hey. This is JD on the a street show. What’s up? Okay, tell everybody what’s your name and where are you from I’m from LA cool? What’s up, how can I help you today? No, I had a quick question for you.

I am a sports journalist, particularly for the NBA. I wanted to know because a lot of my content and access piece – and it’s a lot of stuff like that games or events or practices and stuff and with the season over, feel like I’ve kind of hit a little bit of a wall, creating content, because there Just hasn’t been as much stuff to post. How do you keep that fresh when it’s kind of a drag ball right now with that with, like that’d, be a season over in LA on it, so you’re on 5,000 followers? What’s the outcome you really want to see from this like fucked off my head: I’d love to eventually be at like 50,000 200,000.

What do you think’s holding you back from getting to you? 50 100,000. I’m sure, like I think I posted contact cuz right now. A lot of your work is less it’s either you or the player. Have you had a piece of kana that to you guys together yeah, I posted some stuff, it’s a little further down, but like like an interview, because so this is what I think for you. I think you don’t have necessarily like OJ and I don’t know what to post like you do know what to post.

You know what gets likes. You know what people want to see. It sounds like to me: you just have a distribution problem. Do you think I’m onto something for apps yeah? No, you go. You go first over think I tend to overthink in general, but especially now it was posting. It has I’ve gotten more followers because I was around, like I probably had 700 like last summer, so I’ve gotten more followers. I got started overtake my captions and like when I ask a question.

I’ve noticed that I get pretty good engagement and results of questions, but I don’t know if I should be asking a question on every post or like some post. I can’t really think of a question that would go with the photo, the one where I’m like, posing with the basketball yeah that couldn’t really think of a question for that. But I think for me, if it’s a distribution and on top of that, like oh, I mean what I what I think about when I put yourself maybe, but if I’m myself in your shoes, maybe it’s like oh shit, I’m the shit now and I got ta.

Look cool so like for that, when you feel like you’ve made it somewhere, I would just do the complete opposite and just tell yourself you did to help you have it on shit, a lot of people when they get too big or, like I don’t even fake When you just experience fast growth, it can ultimately kill you, because in your head, you’re getting complacent and a little bit less oh, I think you actually know what to ask and what people want to hear it’s more of a fact of how vulnerable are you test? Testing a lot of things because you have to realize you’re still in the very beginning stages right now, you can’t overthink.

You really can’t afford that, but your dreams are bigger, I’m assuming so maybe you need actually think about like this, like you’re, just starting who gives a fuck. If you don’t know what to caption it, you have a lot more to go. That’s the first thing. Second thing is once you get over yourself and you’re like okay, I haven’t done shit. This is just only the beginning and I don’t need to worry so much about what people think.

I would actually take some of your best work. You did the spreadsheet thing, which is fucking cool, and this kind of like do this like smart, to take a photo with someone that has your audience. For example, amigos! That’s huge! What I would do is just take that freaking photo of a really meaningful caption and describes you and what you do put that as a Facebook or Instagram ad and show it to only migos followers.

People who are fans of me goes, I am Telling You they are going to come by on your page, a big host shit, I’m also like, because I’m I know a lot of guys if you target lot of guys, they listen to me, goes they’re, probably also Into basketball, so you know what I mean like, I feel like what you should do is distribution is simple ads. It’s it’s literally. What five dollars a day you can app at in just take your best content that you think people would be super interested in which is probably a photo and then insert yourself into it and then get that distribution down, because you already know what to post.

I feel like if you just want more followers triads, it’s the most targeted and fastest way: okay, okay and then one last question yeah a lot of photos of myself. I don’t want it to just become all about me, like I kind of want to invite value. To my see my followers, how would you say going about balancing like inserting myself into to my posts versus I know providing that most of people come for the other stuff? I assume.

Let me give you example. There’s a reason. Why Will Smith Will Smith? The page like Will Smith’s Instagram is better than a Will Smith’s Instagram like there’s a reason, my quote: Instagram pages, don’t do as well as maybe the personal page. I don’t think, there’s anything wrong with incident yourself in it, and why do you think it’s wrong? I feel like personal touches. People want to see face-to-face interaction, just because you put a selfie in it, doesn’t make it invaluable the values in the caption, the photos, just entertainment.

I don’t think you should worry about that. Okay, okay, so you think it’s fine to post more photos of myself as long as I’m providing value in the caption, I think that’s, what’s best people kind of want to see you kind of in the mix. I think that’s what makes you if you wanted to start just a. I don’t know editor page without you that would that be different story, but this is your page. This is like your page right, so you need to add yourself into it.

Alright, I’m going to go ahead over the next call. Let me know if you ever need anything have a great day. Oh, this is the completed. Look, it’s actually currently. 4 p.M. I have an event at 6 p.M. It’s actually with my marketing agency client. Through this article, a like, if you’re enjoying my content so far and just subscribe to this blog just for more that’s all – I love you guys. It’s all my best shit is free and if you’re wondering, if you want to be on the next acts, Jade show, I will link below how you can get involved.

It’s very limited, but I would highly recommend if you actually want one-on-one coaching. Whenever you see here is ten times more exclusive and deeper in my coaching calls, so I’m not trying to sell you guys anything, but I just know something these guys really do truly need that you can change the trajectory of your followers. Trust me it’s not for everybody, but I thought throw it in here. I will also link below how you can get involved with my coaching, it’s very, very selective, so I’m just letting you know the dog, it’s not for everybody, but I thought I’d.

Let you know that I’m doing those if you’re interested to that cause with comment the supposed to be be to the next at fist. You have a bit of my vlogs in a fat minute. It’s do lots. How are you guys stopping? Can I tell this: that’s how we mingle two seconds guys literally, we lasted there in two minutes front of it as a social interaction, the crack at it. I’m only like like a little bit, I only like just like yeah, I’m not really into the injecting.

You know I’m like okay, I know it’s friends are too. You know, that’s why I’m youtuber friends that we talked to that to get the mom. Did you guys do drugs in high school really Bob no way what Celine I’m ready? I already beat you guys. Guys did you drink, you would definitely drink in high school mom high school, my family, no family. We only got a wasted day on the weekends, so funny think I’m a story.

So I was my first day when I went to LA alone, which is like last month, I text my text, my dad’s saying goodnight and my dad thought it was not me and he called me in the middle night. Who is this? This is not Jade. This is no Selleck Jade can’t believe you don’t have faith in me: hey music, Jason, a party like what guys come down below if your parents caught you or you’d have a guy caught. Yet I’m back home.

Thank you so much for reading it. I want to close off this article by saying I love you I’ll catch you guys in the next one

How To Be a Social Media “Influencer” #askjadeshow

Welcome back to my blog! What’S up! Thank you! So much for being here, they were going to call you guys up. This is the asteroid show where I answered your deepest darkest questions on social media. First caller is Charlotte and I’m getting ready as were chatting.

I wanted to be, as, like you know, real as possible, I’m a busy Cal and I’m just doing my ostracion as I’m putting my makeup on. So it’s like a multi, I’m some multi-level tasking entrepreneur, so we’re going to go with the first caller. Thank you. So much reading it we’re going to jump right. I think I have a microphone hello, hello, hello, hi. This is Jade girl to ask Jade, show hey Charlotte. How are you we’re doing amazing? So we got the we got the viewers here.

So, just let us know who you are what you do where were you from? I am from Scotland, I yeah. What do you do? What’S your? What’S your profession, I guess, what’s your, what are you currently doing on social media? Have a kind of like type thing? Oh I’m, taking at your account beautiful, foodie bloggers. What do you think is? What’S your current problem, how can I help you um? I just kind of wondered how to like insert more of myself into X.

Obviously, right now that’s kind of just like a lot of like food pictures but yeah, I kind of want to strengthen like personal side of it. So I got, I guess so. Maybe are you feeling, like you, get a lot more interaction and people find more value from food pictures? Not you. So you feel like if you post a picture. It’S like no one gives a shit. Okay, okay! I that’s what that’s a real problem, so how you do it like props to you.

Thank you. Well, let me let me take a look, so is YouTube something you’re currently working Harden or not as much you haven’t, sat down and filmed a YouTube article at all. I do Instagram lives or have you done anything with like face to face story? Interaction? Maybe you know what I think you should do. I think my biggest ever like tip for just starting to be like you know, trying to get comfortable with a camera, is really hard.

I’M telling you it’s like not like. I love the camera. It’S actually really weird, because no one’s fucking there, and sometimes if you go online right, if you ever like the do live, have you? Okay? If you have you done alive before? Okay, it’s just really awkward, but no one talks back and you’re just like looking for questions and no one’s asking anything. So how do you make it less awkward? So my biggest thing – I think I want you to try – is the key of being less awkward is called preparation.

So let me make it a little more less raw raw. I think what I would do for you is going on your DMS and whether you answer every single one or don’t for the next like leave it up for 24 hours to make people ask you, questions start the first couple articles slash you want to like segment Yourself inside just make it a Q & A do heavy Q & A because, what’s going to happen, is the reason why people don’t are not as interesting as Charlotte the person and more Charlotte the food? It’S because you don’t haven’t given them a reason to really care about you as a person.

For example, if you say give me a Q & A let me answer your questions and you do face to face interaction. They’Re going to want to read your YouTube article. What I would do is, if you don’t know what to say, make people ask you. The second thing is you should try something called. It’S called like the 60 60 minute challenge. I think it might help you so basically a little bit. Okay, are you ready? So I actually I do this for so many Oh kind of like my artist friends like people who make music cuz some people just don’t wan na fucking.

I don’t know why they’re an artist but they don’t wan na make a song. So I try to help them with how to be more comfortable, putting stuff down on paper. So for you, I would say: set a timer 60 minutes, whatever you film in that 60 minutes, you have to post it, whether it’s stupid or whether it’s good you have to so. This really gets your mind to kind of be okay. With imperfection good luck, charlie, I hope you crush it by the way.

Send me a DM after you crush it, and I love to know how it goes hey. This is JT on the ask Jay. True hey what is up girl toss? What’S your name where you from my name is dope peace? That’S a beautiful name of what the heck! I love it. What do you? What are you clearly which would pretty clearly up I’m about to uploading article? What do you do on social media? Okay, that’s a great question because right now I’m not really sure I am trying, but I feel like they don’t try to become influenced it just happen.

So I’m just trying to figure out and navigate do like being youtuber in if I’m even a youtuber. Yet because I have what do you think makes someone an influencer an influencer? Basically, I want to change this like later on, as I become an experiencer myself, but I either right now I feel like an influencer or someone who can equation can carry on and it’s their word or like what they say about certain things.

It gets carried on. A lot of people are reading them, they have envy or they have just people have their eye on them. Okay, people these piece weeks. How about this? How do you measure an influencer? That’S a better question. I feel like you’re like no, like you know. How would you measure someone like, for example, like how would you measure how influential someone is there you go, it’s a hard one think about it.

Well, I’m thinking right now is like oh, okay, tell me more. What does that explain it to like a five-year-old saying, peace? How do you measure influence go wow? You might do something great right now, but not everyone can see it well. How would you measure your success if someone is okay, honey, mm-hmm? I know a lot of youtubers action, don’t make money, so those are the stupid utility you’re supposed to make money for, of course, I think about it like this there’s nothing wrong with money.

It’S just about how much time you’re dedicated. If you have all your money made from YouTube, your hashtag dedicated that’s your job, so I feel like people who are half-assing YouTube and don’t make money it’s because they don’t know they’re, not actually 100 % committed, which is not evil. I think people kind of tie grounds to hardly with money, so I mean like. Let me know: do you really want to quit your job and do you two full-time one, do if you’re starting small and you haven’t, made any money yet and like he’s being consistent or you’re trying to rescue like? Where did that? Please you what’s your goal to make money right in what yeah time it’s time holding you Matt’s, not enough time, not enough money to do what you want or not enough self-confidence.

/! It’S yourself holding back! This is what I would do. Peace, I’m going to help you out with your YouTube career when you’re, when you’re small, you do the following things: you just test a lot of shit you’re just going to try something and you’re trying to do what people want to do, which is make content. So what you first of all the first thing, this first step to be YouTube famous, is you need a frickin be like through the roof? Confident, if you like, talking to camera, make that like become just best friends, what’s going to happen? Is people only follow people that have what they want if you’re not confident enough, if you don’t show them that you are in love with this more than they aren’t they’re not going to follow you, I think too many people realize they’re scared about posting.

You literally, if you can’t, if you’re scared of posting a article, no one wants a fucking, follow you, because everyone in their own home just are is insecure. The reason why youtubers or success will succeed is because either they’re extremely confidant, camera and people kind of want that in you know kind of embedded in them. So they read you more. I think that’s what you need to start with start with a little bit of confidence.

This might mean taking a trip to the park and just kind of being real with yourself doing, a really full beat look to make you feel better whatever you start with yourself. First and then what I would do next is don’t give a shit and do my favorite technique called top ten of top ten. So this is something I haven’t cinema youtube yet, but what you can do right now? Peace go to your top ten favorite youtubers.

Go to their most popular articles, take ten of their most popular articles and recreate it in your own words. So then you have a hundred unlimited. You have a hundred unlimited articles that you know is proven and works. Okay, and what’s the problem with that? What’S going to help you’re going to you’re going to get sued, so something more like what are you afraid of with someone getting upset? No, no one gives a shit like no one.

You have to understand you’re, not copying, there’s a difference between okay, I think imitation is horrible, like copying their words or style, it’s horrible. What you can do is steal, there’s a book. Actually I want you to read it search steal like an artist. What it’s basically saying this book is saying: you want to steal like an artist which means you don’t take from one creator, you take from ten different creators and you just take the ones that you really like the pieces that works.

You don’t want to imitate anyone. Imitation is all flattery. I do agree with that. Just don’t take from one person take from multiple sources. That’S not stealing! That’S called interpretation, alright got it! Thank you love. Your piece have a good day. Hello, hey. This is JD on the a street show. What’S up? Okay, tell everybody what’s your name and where are you from I’m from LA cool? What’S up, how can I help you today? No, I had a quick question for you.
