I did it! I just landed my very first PAID Influencer job!
Since my last entry, I’ve been having issues with my video equipment and other technical problems, which led me to invest in a few greatly needed upgrades. This has delayed my first YouTube videos from being recorded.
In the meantime, I’ve been hustling to get more jobs. I’m very happy to say that I’ve landed quite a few jobs. They’re all jobs that require my review and promotion in exchange for their product(s). I’ll have lots of videos on my YouTube Channel and product photos and reviews on my Instagram page. Keep an eye out for all of the new content I’ve got coming. Once I start to post these upcoming product review photos and videos, they’re going to become consistent, so I’ll be pumping them out!
Some of these “product in exchange for review” jobs that I’ve gotten include several skincare products, several haircare products, a couple of fashionable apparel and accessory jobs (I’m very excited to start doing these), hair supplements, CBD products, plus more that I’m surely forgetting off the top of my head. If you’re following me on Instagram and YouTube, then you’ll be seeing a lot of new content from these jobs (and unsponsored content) very soon.
Yesterday, I received an email from one of the Influencer marketing websites that I’m a member of, and they introduced and connected me with the owner of a company that I’ve pitched to recently. When I checked my email this afternoon, I’d recieved an email directly from the owner of this company. They want to work with me, too, which is great. I’ll tell you all about them and my new job in my next entry after we’ve officially sealed the deal!
The job is a lot like all of the other jobs that I have right now: receive a few product, promote the brand and their products, and work for commission. I’ll be working as an affiliate with them, as I do with several of the other companies that I’ll be promoting. Of course, I’ll try my hardest to promote the brands and their products, create the very best content that I can for them, and if I’m lucky, I’ll make some commission. I’m just happy to be getting so much experience!
There’s one difference with this new job: I’m going to be paid for my posts! This may not sound all that exciting to you, and I would understand that. The thing is that I’ve just reached one of my goals! Up until now, I’ve only been receiving products from brands as my payment, which I’m very grateful for, as it gives me lots of experience, and I get to try a lot of new products. Now, I’m on Cloud Nine because I’ve reached one of my goals sooner than I’d expected!
To say that I’m excited would be an understatement. Sure, I’m excited to be paid for my content, but it feels bigger than that. I’ve just reached a goal that I’ve had, and I’ve reached it much sooner that I’d expected. It’s a great feeling of accomplishment. It’s a lot of work just looking for Influencer jobs, and it’s even more work once you get jobs. It can get a little discouraging at times, especially when you’re flat broke. To finally get a paying Influencer job means that all of this hustling that I’ve been doing is really working, and it’s actually paying off – literally. It’s not a lot of money, by any means, but this is just the start of the next chapter in my journey. I’m strapped in for the ride, and I’m ready to go!
Stay tuned, because I’ll certainly be keeping you all updated on my journey! I’ll tell you more about the job itself as soon as I’ve signed my paperwork and made it official! I can’t wait to tell you more, because the product is extremely unique. It’s very cool!
Come back to visit my blog to hear more about this new chapter of my journey! You can also find me (and my upcoming content) on Instagram and YouTube. I hope to see and talk to you soon on my main accounts! ❤
