What Does a Teenage Social Media Influencer do?
A teenage Social Media Influencer will share links on their social media accounts and get paid to do so. They’ll basically be giving a promotion of a product or service to their followers on their social media accounts in exchange for payment. In order to do this, they have to have a sizable social media following. Once they do, they need to get links, share those links and try to get as many people as possible to click on the link. People who sell products need somewhere and someone to advocate for their products online, and that’s what you will be doing. For this type of job, we recommend that you focus specifically on Instagram as that’s the social media platform with the most commercial interest.
How Much Does a Teenage Social Media Influencer Get Paid?
As a teenage Social Media Influencer just starting, you can expect to earn very little. You won’t get paid much for sharing links on your account, if you have a small social media following. Larger social media pages will earn more for link sharing, so there is a huge incentive to grow your social media pages as big as possible. This is one of the main problems with becoming a Social Media Influencer, it’s very slow moving in the beginning. But if you stick to it and keep posting more pictures and videos, your subscribers will grow and the money you gain from doing it will slowly add up. If you start with less than 100 followers and post consistently for a whole year, it’s unlikely that you’ll make more than $1000, but there are always exceptions to that rule.
How Can I Get Started as a Teenage Social Media Influencer?
- Before you begin, you’ll focus on getting followers on your social media accounts. You will be sharing the links on your social media and the larger your following, the more likely you’ll be contacted. To do this, you need many people visiting your social media account often in the first place. Tell all your friends to follow you on the social media platform and to share your account with their friends as well. It won’t be profitable for you if you don’t have many followers. If you don’t know how to use Instagram, go to Lynda.com and search this course "Learning Instagram by Garrick Chow" and get it. Once you get a good number of followers (usually over 25,000 on your account) you can move onto the next step.
- Now that you’ve gotten a decent number of followers on your social media account, you can register at Mylikes. Mylikes is a website where they will tell you the links you can post and where you will get paid. You’ll want to register an account on Mylikes to become a Social Media Influencer and to get the links you need. When registering, just attach your social media account, your email, and a little bit more of personal details. After you’ve registered on Mylikes, you can start using Mylikes.
- Once you’ve registered, you can now get links from Mylikes and then share the links on your social media account. Be careful though, you need to make sure you don’t share promotional content too often as this could result in people unfollowing you. Once you’ve gotten a couple links that you want to use, you can then post it on your social media account. You can even share it on multiple social medias accounts. It won’t hurt; it will only make you more money as a Social Media Influencer in the long term.
- Congrats, you’re officially a teenage Social Media Influencer. You might not get paid much for being a Social Media Influencer, but you are doing something very simple and it’s an easy way to make money if you have a large following. If you increase the amount of views and followers you have on your social media account, you’ll make even more money. Keep at it and eventually you may even be contacted by brands who will give you free merchandise and if you get really big, you might get sponsored posts as well which pay thousands of dollars for each link.
