Are you ready to learn how tens of thousands of social media influencers turn their following into a profitable business? You need to learn about the exploding influencer marketing industry!
In this course you will learn how to turn a social media following into a profitable online business.
You will learn how to: value a following, connect with brands, and create sponsored posts…
…AKA posts that earn revenue!
Social Media Influencers are NOT just celebrities.
Accounts with as little as 2,500 followers can get connected with brands and start to monetize their following.
What if you don't have a following yet? Don’t worry. We also give you proven expert tips on how to best grow your social media account.
This course walks you step-by-step how to:
What exactly is influencer marketing?
If you asked yourself that question, you need to watch my free preview videos below called “Why Ad Dollars Are Flowing Into Influencer Marketing”.
Everything you need to know are in those two videos.
Most importantly, you will learn that Influencer Marketing is an exploding advertising industry. It is expected to be valued as (at least) a $5 Billion industry by 2020.
That’s Billion with a B!
Social Media Influencer Marketing Platforms
I know, that's a boring, mouth-full of a name. All you need to know is that a "platform" is where you connect with brands. This is also where you set up your advertising campaign and sponsored posts.
In the course, I also walk through two popular influencer marketing platforms. You will witness the behind the scenes of how to connect with brands. They are Famebit and Linqia.
Famebit was recently acquired by Google, so you know they aren’t going anywhere.
Linqia is interesting because as soon as you are accepted into their platform, a CSM (Customer Success Manager) is assigned to you. The CSM’s job is to try to get you a Sponsored Post campaign from a brand. How cool is that!?
When I said this industry was exploding, I wasn't kidding. There are now over 50 different influencer marketing platforms. Famebit and Linqia are two of the most popular platforms that I've found.
*You don't have to sign up with either of these platforms for this course. They are totally optional!
Real Life Examples
I could have easily chosen celebrities with millions of followers for examples of sponsored posts. But, I didn’t. I dug a little deeper for you.
Most of the examples in this course are what are called the Power Middle of social media influencers. They have between 10,000 and 250,000 followers.
You won’t find those type of examples anywhere else on the web!
