What’s up welcome to my blog today we’re talking about influencers and brands and how to properly price yourself.
This is something that I’m so passionate about as influencers. Maybe we don’t price ourselves enough. We don’t know how much we charge I wish we should charge. We don’t know our value and as a brands, we don’t know how to come up to these influencers. I kind of make this small little thing happen. I think it’s important to finally bring justice, so this is different than most other youtubers they’re going to be like.
Okay, you subsetted see how much you charge. Okay, no, no, no guys need to understand the number one problem we’re going to go over is finding and communicating the right kpi’s business. This is called key performance index. I don’t know that term. It’s about to get real freakin repetitive up in here a little bit of background if you’re curious, why I’m talking what I? Why I’m here, my name is Jade.
I’m an entrepreneur and I’ve been helping people grow on social media yeah like the if you’re curious, to know a lot of the knowledge I do have his first-hand experience. This is not some well. No. This is first-hand experience. My family owns marking agency working with two to five million dollar revenue brands anyways, if you feel like an influencer and not knowing what to post, not only what to price yourself, how to come up to brands or on the reverse you’re on our brand.

So if I look a little crazy, I’m just playing with makeup, let me let it be: let it be grace the way this article is going to work is first, I’m going to tell you guys a story to really give you guys some context.
So you really understand it. Sorry, if I talk a lot, it’s just really for your own benefit and I’m going to go into how to price yourself and then, lastly, I’m going to go to how to negotiate and keep going with brand and the benefits hey. The car also I’m going to eat and drive. If this is what do I favorite things ever, it’s dairy-free ice cream looks like this dairy-free and beautiful. Don’t you worry, I’m getting into the meat the core value of this article, I’m just going to eat this? Okay, so what I did is I took some of your GM’s and put them into question.
Okay hold up. Is that chocolate on my lips, a hack, I’m such a mess. I have truly apologized. I think one story I did what at all was just one that kind of got me a little bit mad. Why I wan na create this article like it truly got me upset like have you ever like burnt a pissed off, but then you started thinking about a mourning. You started overthinking and then you were like really pissed off. Think what I hope.
What happened was just actually was a few months ago, I’m Brants occasionally send me emails through my personal brand. They would have sponsor great right and I was responding to a few and one of them started off good. It’s a brand that I can’t do their neighbor non-disclosure, but what I do know is this brand was selling a product. It was a subscription model, it’s kind of like Netflix. You know like their monthly subscription model product.
I think monster days I was like cool cool. Like I was agreeing with everything they’re saying, they’re sending me their product now, what really come each throat office after I said. Yes, they felt like they had to undervalue my my audience and my skill. So they started asking for more saying: okay, that’s not enough! They were adding more and more on top of it, and so I couldn’t have enough. They were literally asked me to link this product like this.
Also use this okoto so make multiple posts, and I feel like there’s a limit. You can get free products forever and ever but there’s a limit. So, oh okay, so what I’m going to say is but the story with a subscription bottle brand. I just realized there. Everything is fine, you can charger self. Whatever you want. There’s no rules. You can barely you, don’t even have to listen to me, but there’s a limit.
Oh influencers on your freaking employees, I’m going to do whatever you want. You have to treat you with fairness, which brings me to my first languages and I think brands going to do their research. So many of them – I don’t know if you guys saw xx. Some of them are just like. I love your gotten so much. I love like your fashion, and it’s just so generic I feel I have brands, did their research on influencers and, if ones we actually feel like they they weren’t cared like.
I don’t know if you guys ever get some random-ass emails, but they weren’t. They were personalized. They weren’t for you. It was a vast distribution you’re like a big company. Then I get it, but a lot of you guys don’t give money. I know a lot of your brands out there. I know have no money you’re, not so treat your filter as well and make them feel value. I’m telling you, when you make your team feel a value and they will promote your product.
You can sell brands to your research. I think it’s also needed a better KPI know. What’s a KPI, you might have KPI stands for key performance index. This is using every business. I think that not enough influencers know what KPIs worries me. This is what you’re going to make money off of they’re, not going to make money off of the likes sulloway’s that you have to know your value and wherever you please say you have to be strategic.
For example, I worked with a brand and you like them and they’re going to pay you per view. You have to know, that’s your KPI, your key performance impact, but you measure success upon that could be like that can be followers, but that could be legitimate sales, but the fact I’m not enough influencers know what the KPIs are. Is scary means your undervalue yourself. You don’t know what to measure when you don’t know what to measure girl-girl you’re, going to get run over by a truck people are going to take advantage of.
You say my brand. It’s all I going to do is just take. Take take as much as possible. So you have to be good fair. So that’s what ever attempted to know your KP honestly. This is not something the tutorial. If you guys want. I can do a whole article on how to provide yourself cusp influencer. Just let me know in the comment section: if you have any questions, let me know I’m really here to help you regardless.
I just don’t know if you’re so far enjoyed this article in this article, like I truly appreciate it, it’ll be the world to me. Comment below her attention is my oxygen, so something’s up accrual back to how to price yourself in general. I think a keep after everything. So what I would do is take your KPI, an example of what could be followers right. Your followers are giving to Braille to do comments and share it’s, not even that ego so due to the sales, if you do, how many sales are you bringing to them? So you pick one and the suppose this I can go into the steps later, but you want to know how many true fancy companies just do simple, math, ready, ready.
Okay, take the number of two fans you have times the average cost of the product you’re working with equals. How much you’re up to charging up the key word is up to ransom. Do your research make people feel value and influencers know what your value is simple as that and don’t ever under face yourself. I would have actually finished this conversation, but we’re going to go meet Brett at first, I’m going to show you guys he owns my sock company, hey guys in a second stay tuned.
You guys know where we are. This is like my favorite coffee shop right now called Oracle coffee. I ordered my latte and I like this place because look this drawers are metal they’re like metal, save the environment. No straws are horrible for the environment. There should have worn a bra with this outfit. Like I’m going to flash the world, I don’t know why just okay, everybody out of my vlog I’ve, never been in a vlog.
Hey guys, I’m here with Brennan. What do you do? We take white socks and actually fifteen okay is that these are Jade. Socks supports your fine. What you for this picture, Instagram wow yeah, I think, wait. Wait! You’re like a size, 9 yeah, missing shoes, I’ll put a pop time right here, all our Brennan, okay, listen! I just found this fidget Birkin spinner in my garage literally my parents. Not let me get a pictures better when it was cool and trendy, because about stupid you know chief asses and now found one thanks.
I’m really happy okay, so today I’m going to crap off this conversation for earlier. I think this leaves us with one question. I think it’s just what, if you’re too small, for a Brit, what, if you’re too small bits for this or what, if you don’t have any more followers? What, if you just don’t, have any much like foreign influence there. You know, and you just can’t be an influence if you don’t have like some followers like janitors question, I’m going to backtrack a little bit.
I think I saw I mean Brendan. Had coffee, not really. We actually just had outside and talked didn’t get coffee, but um, but I wanted to say was: I think he and I were talking just about starting your personal brand, and one of the questions Vernon actually asked me was like Jay would have like this YouTube thing. Doesn’t work or does it lose credibility if you do YouTube and like got bad reputation? What if you lose followers what, if what have you lose just? What have you is? The thing I have to just say is you guys have to realize what you’re doing with influencer marketing being in brand is basically entrepreneurship.
You got ta be able to take risk literally the word entrepreneur. Entrepreneurship means risk risk risk equals willing to fail. A lot of you guys are trying to like sugarcoat buffer this like okay. Let me like minimize my chances actually just finishing up a coaching call with one of you guys, one of my students and I think, she’s just asking how to like safety jacket around my results, and I want a clear direction.
I don’t got a clear path if you wanted a clear path: go get a job. You chose this path because you want to clean your own. So don’t act like this is so easy. So what I’m going to say is what, if you’re too small or what, if you have enough likes or what, if you fail, you build a bridge and get over at Karen. I’m sorry I’ve been hanging on to Ryan a lot and then we just been saying Karen. I don’t know why I can pick these names.
Oh is a Karen or Susan. I think too many people have the what-ifs and they don’t start. So I guess, if you’re too small of an influencer think about your KPIs, are you measuring the right thing? Brands don’t give a about how many followers you have they care about the attention you hold? How many people are you actually having the attention of? Because you got to know, know these things Millennials they scroll, fast or Instagram.
Just because someone likes your photo doesn’t mean doesn’t mean you can do it all over any sales. You have to know your value first, you have to be confident on what you do. Take a risk and don’t look back just you know, move forward. If your brand says no move on boo, Karen there’s a thousand other brands, you can email. This is a numbers game. You try one who wants the next, that’s what you have to keep your PR list full.
So this brings me to my last point: if a brand rejects you do the following, get over it you’re going to have to do this over and over again, if you can’t take a slap in the face get the out. This is competitive and you need to build yourself some confidence and armor, because nobody wants to follow anybody that doesn’t have what they want. People will follow someone because they won’t have the lifestyle they want.
They have something they want if you’re, not confident in the product or selling, especially and just if you’re, not confident in your product. Your own articles, your own content. No one wants a follow. No, you need to love your product. Love yourself love your own account of what you’re selling with a brand. If you don’t actually love it, you’re not going to get that sale, stop mentoring. Kpi is y’all.
I’ve got tired. I actually just want to leave this off on a positive note, and just let you know I’m here for you, I just I don’t know why are reading this article. Sometimes it blows my mind that, like thirty five freaking thousand of you are here reading me, you guys are amazing, and all I want to do is keep creating content to help you as much as I’m busy with my own business, and I actually just posted a Podcast about the similar topic about failure and losing likes check it out.
