This post is for my fellow blogger babes / side hustlers! Learn from my personal journey in the blogging world and how I started landing brand collaborations. Those of you non-bloggers may still find this post interesting as a behind the scene look about how we make money in the influencer industry.
Background about celinekaye.com:
My first year blogging (2018) was full of learning … trying to learn business basics of instagram, pinterest, wordpress, and mailchimp. My first goal was to grow my following.
I started with 400 followers (my personal account) and as soon as I turned it to a business account I ran full speed at growing my followers.
Next goal was to get accepted to RewardStyle / LiketoKnowIt. I thought this was the ticket to earning money. I quickly learned that it’s not. It works. It brings in money. But for me it wasn’t bringing in money that made a difference. I realized that you have to do 2 things to really make money through that platform. 1) Have a lot of instagram followers shopping with your links 2) Have a lot of LiketoKnowIt followers (in their app) shopping your profile.
Enter brand collaborations:
Ok so, my next thought was…. How the heck do I land brand deals? Do I wait for brands to find me? How are they going to find me when I am a micro-influencer (smaller following).
Then I found this online course. GAME CHANGER.
Expensive course. BUT GAME CHANGING.
I made more money in the next 3 months than I did in my first year!
It teaches you how to land brand collaborations. It gives you templates on what to say, how to negotiate, and assets such as media kit templates.
100% worth the money. And so easy to take because you take the courses on your own time, as fast or slow as you want!
