Collaboration/Partnership with Brands with Sponsored Content
Helping brands to promote brand awareness and specific products and services through social media platforms in exchange for payment or products. This also covers reviews, event coverage, product placement, and many more. Sponsored posts can be in the form of a photo, video, stories, blog post, live streaming and many more.
Get the right Influencer Marketing Agency
As an influencer, going solo will take you at a certain point but having the right marketing agency can take you further as they could connect you with more brands and partners.
These links provide your followers and audiences to purchase featured products (usually with a good deal/promo with given code to the influencers), download apps, visit specific websites or sign up for featured services that are usually relevant to your followers interests, based on your regular content and niche market segment.
Sell Your Own Product/Services (Business Ventures)
Why not make money by striking out your own merchandise, app, services, companies and more. You can leverage your own social media loyal followings and launch books or merch lines as an example.
