It seems like everyone is
vlogging these days. From celebrities to regular people, they find ways to
stand out in various social media platforms. Apart from having a platform to
express themselves, they’re also earning a lot of money.
Several people are willing to follow
vloggers who have a fantastic content. They might be busy with a lot of things
in life, but when their
favorite vlogger has a new content, they would take a few minutes off to watch
These vloggers are also called social
media influencers. Through their platform, they can convince people to change
their views on a lot of things, or even purchase certain products. There’s no
wonder why a lot of companies are running after these influencers considering
how great they are in moving people. These are some ways an influencer can rake
a lot of money.
Commissions via affiliates
It happens when you push other
people’s products into your vlog. Each time a viewer of your site makes a
purchase as a result of your vlog, it leads to a commission. It works through a
unique code whenever a visitor clicks the link.
When you have a lot of followers,
it means that advertisers
are willing to pay so they can advertise on your site. It starts with a small
amount, but it will keep on rolling depending on the site quality and the
number of followers.
You can also create a vlog specifically
to push for a product. It’s called sponsored content. The entire vlog can
revolve around that product being advertised. These companies are willing to
pay for the sponsored content since there’s a massive audience reach. It could
be a one-off partnership, or it could also be on a long-term basis. It depends
on the effectiveness of the sponsored content.
Given these ways for vloggers to
make money, you might be convinced to become one. It takes time before you gain
popularity, but you will get there with the right strategy. You also need to be
particular with your content and show your expertise in that area. You also
have to be consistent in putting out content that people are willing to view.
The most important thing to
remember is that you need to have
a positive reputation. You’re not only building your content, but your image.
Even if you’re putting out quality content if you have a terrible attitude, you
won’t convince people to listen to you. They will even start to unsubscribe and
look for competing contents. Your advertisers will start seeing you as a risk
and sponsors are going to end your partnership.
The point is that being an influencer
is a money-making business, but it also comes with a lot of risks. It’s not
something that happens overnight, and even reaching popularity doesn’t
