So, who are influencers? Social media influencers are individuals with large followings on social networking platforms who capitalise on their audience by working with brands to promote products or creative personalised promotion codes to their niche audience base. Their money is also made through promoting affiliate links and encouraging their followers to use their personalised promotional codes provided for them by brands. Influencer marketing has revolutionised the digital marketing sphere and insight from Captiv8 has revealed that influencers can earn up to $20,000 per post. It sounds like the dream job but can influencers stand the test of time or are they simply a passing trend?
Oh money. We really can’t live without you. But why must you be so hard to take care of…
Picture this. You want to get fit, but you can’t afford the gym fees. You want to look stylish, but all the brands are expensive. You want to eat better, but you don’t have all the fancy kitchen equipment. Sometimes getting fit and losing weight are not only time-consuming and energy-sapping, but also wallet-draining. The fitness marketplace is full of useful—yet expensive—equipment which aims to boost your performance; however, you don’t need to spend big to make a big difference. So how exactly can you get fit on a budget?
Do you have an eye for emerging cultural trends? Do you have an internet savvy background, and an entrepreneurial spirit? Then you could just be an emerging trend spotter with a heightened ability to make money online. Whether you noticed the rise of onesies in 2012, or whether you saw the Loom Band fanatic coming from a mile off, having an eye for new, and emerging trends is a great talent to have. So why not cash in on it?
