Imagine a weekend afternoon where you have cancelled all your plans because you want to stay at home and “chill”. You scroll endlessly through social media catching up with people’s lives and all the things they do. You just cannot seem to part ways with your social media apps just because it is so much fun.
But then again, like all good things, the weekend now comes to an end and you have to go back to the desk, typing your days away on excel sheets. You wonder, “it would be fun if someone paid me to scroll through social media. I would make so much money!”
Well, if that thought has ever crossed your mind, then you should know that is a possibility.
Everyone in this world is somehow or another plugged in to some social media platform or another. It’s become a part of everyone’s day-to-day routine. And brands have sensed the unending potential of social media marketing. Brands are now looking for social media influencers all around the world to use their influence only to market their products.
If you wish to make some bucks off being on social media, here’s what may help you:
- Influence or get an influencer
If you have tried way too hard to optimise your content to reach more eyeballs and that plan has fallen flat on its face, don’t be disheartened. Instead, reach out to influencers (it is super easy as they are always open to avenues) and rope them in. Earn commission. Do it quite often and you will have a steady passive income flowing in.
- Plan it out
Plan out your strategy meticulously about when you would publish your content, what kind of content works and how can you help a certain brand make money through their online presence. This way, though you freelance, you become an asset to the brand, thereby making handy money.
- Research social media routinely
This should be a part of your routine where you research social media and be at par with all that is new. Stay abreast with social media upgrades will give you the edge over the competition and help you help your brand better.
Getting out of your 9-5 rut is only as easy as starting a business that is flexible and allows you to hold a steady job while you make money without being on the job. And social media marketing is that avenue where the efforts get magnified and the cash influx never stops.
