BY JHONI | OCTOBER 27, 2020 | WHAT I WISH I KNEW IN MY 20'S
Before you ask why I'm writing this....I'm 35. Let's just get this out in the open. Clear the air. Come to an understanding. I am that old😜. So I feel like since my 20's ended over 5 years ago, I'm old enough to do this blog (and a bunch of other things)...So let's chat!
1. If you want to switch careers...DO IT NOW
This is easier said than done. I know that most of the time in your twenties, you don't know you want to switch careers until you're in your 30's (ie. me), but if you feel like this might not be the career for you...SWITCH. It is much easier to do it younger. You won't have to account for as much dead time (time when you're not working). You also probably have less responsibility in your 20s (no husband/wife or child) and you are free to explore careers!
2. SAVE YOUR MONEY. PROTECT YOUR CREDIT
There isn't a whole lot to say about this because the title speaks for itself. You'll thank your younger self later.

What is a media kit? Why do I need one?Simply put, a media kit is visually appealing and convenient way to show a brand why they should work with you. A great way to look at a media kit, or media press kit, is the same way an employer views your resume. It should condense all of your qualifications and accolades into a central document that is fully representative of your brand as an influencer. Think about it this way, does your media press kit answer all of the questions a potential employer would want answered?
If you want to work with brands as an influencer, you need a media kit!
What should I put in my media kit?1. A brief bio.
Talk about who you are. Where are you from? How long have you been an influencer? Talk about the things that you are into and the things that are true to your brand. If you are into makeup, this is a great place to include that you are a beauty blogger. If you are heavily into video games, this is where you would include that you are a youtube gamer, for example. Talk about things that give people an idea of what type of content you are prone to putting out.
By Jhoni | October 2, 2020 | 5 ways to make money as an influencer
I'm back. So let's just hop into it. Everyone aspires to be an influencer to make money, but I think that most people have a 1 dimensional view of how influencers are making money...but I'm here to give you the true tea- Keep reading..
1. Sponsored Social Media posts
The first way influencers make money is the most common way...sponsored social media posts. I think this is the way most new influencers think a majority of their money is going to be made. This refers to brands paying an influencer to post an advertisement on their Instagram or tik tok, etc. This is probably the basis for influence marketing. Generally speaking, some brands will solicit anyone with a large following to post their products. This is usually why it is difficult to leverage a ton of money from just sponsored posts. Combine ALL of the tips I'm about to give to maximize that coin!
2. Affiliate Marketing
The second way influencers can make money is through Affiliate Marketing. I'm sure you all have heard this term before. Affiliate marketing is when you get a specialized link from a company, and you make a commission off of every sale made using your link. This is a great way to make passive income if you like to sell (which all influencers better love) and if you can think of creative ways to make someone click a link! Here is the gag with some affiliate links-they are open links. If you're doing affiliate links correctly, you can make great money. That's because open links stay tied to you for up to 30 days (roughly). This means once a person clicks your link, anything they buy within the allotted time period from that site earns you a commission. They don't even have to buy what you were advertising! Imagine having a bunch of active links working at one time....I'm just saying....
