5 Ways to Earn Money As An Influencer


🌟Blog Post

Write or ghost-write for brands, companies or even individuals. If you are an influencer and at the same time a blogger, this is a plus point as you can publish articles and valuable posts at your own website. The more people visit your website, the more coverage you will get and this will help you to gain more partnership with local and even international brands. 


🌟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. 


One of the recommended Influencer Marketing Agency in Malaysia is SushiVid, Southeast Asia's leading influencer management solution for brands to launch data-driven influencer marketing at a scale. 


SushiVid has more than 20,000 branded contents made and 12,000 influencers from Malaysia, Philippines, Indonesia, Singapore and China. SushiVid won Malaysia's Best Digital Marketing Solution and Best Platform Development awards. 


There are few platforms for influencers to explore and make money through SushiVid


πŸ’«GoShareLah (Cost-per-share model)

Share branded contents on your social media platform that will benefit your followers. Content is uploaded by clients, all you have to do is just share!


πŸ’«ConfirmPlusChop (Cost-per-sale model)

ConfirmPlusChop (CPC) works differently than SushiVid. There is no payment for the posting itself.

It is more of trying to sell the products on your e-com page that you have set up with CPC. Influencers just have to build their audience's trust for the product, by mentioning it in stories and maybe a few postings on their social media platforms.


After the audience gets interested, influencers can send the audience directly to their own e-com page, and let them know if they want the same product, they can get it from the influencers e-com page. 


It will also cost them cheaper since at ConfirmPlusChop the prices are cheaper than the normal market price. When they purchase, influencers will receive a margin from the sale.


Why not explore the platform by yourself as a start and request for products you are interested in.


Here are the steps on how to go to your CPC page:

1. Firstly, You will have to log in as ‘an influencer’ on https://go.sushivid.com


2. Once you’ve logged in, go to 'New campaigns' and at the ‘Sell’ section, click view more to request for product. It will direct you to ConfirmPlusChop.


3. Once you’re in the ConfirmPlusChop Page, you can browse for the product and request a sample. If you’re selected by the brand, you will be getting a notification from the team.


Why influencers should try ConfirmPlusChop?

Key Opinion Leaders (KOLs) or influencers can try new interesting products and can earn by selling them to their friends, family, audience/followers. 


Additionally, the brands could benefit because this type of marketing helps to spread the word about their product and create brand awareness through influencers and they get influencers-agents who can help them to sell their products.


πŸ’«Live Streaming

Nowadays live streaming is getting popular day by day because of the real-time engagement, call to action urgency, richer content and trust money can't buy the relationship between influencers and their audiences. Livestream for Facebook, Instagram, JOOX and Taobao are now available on SushiVid too!


🌟Affiliate Links/Marketing

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. Great news for my followers and readers, I'm launching something soon! Stay tuned and be part of the excitement😘


Based on the above sharing, these are some of the ways they can earn money. Most influencers don't rely on a single source of income and they usually combine a few approaches to make a living. 


Being an influencer takes a lot of hard work and dedication in ensuring their work and social media contents are one of the highest quality and to keep their audience interest high. You can start using these ways to earn money on social media and monetize your influence!
