Well, this content is far fetched for my food blog! When I first started blogging, it was a hobby and just for me to have fun. I am still in hobby-mode but figured out I can make a little money as an “influencer.”
An influencer is someone who has a strong social media presence. Companies want to use your social outreach to market their brand and products. They compensate you by sending you free product or pay you money.
I have decided to try this “influencer” thing out. I am not quitting my day job…yet but this new path I have discovered is quite intriguing to say the least. I have chosen to only work with companies I personally would use their product or service. I believe by doing this, it will give an honest take on the brand or product I am representing.
My first real “influencer” gig was from Costco a year ago. I didn’t know that I had become an influencer right out of the gate but I sure got a taste of the good stuff!
Fast forward to a year later. My next gig is Phiaton. I did a post a few weeks ago on it. I thought I did O.K. but they informed me that my headphones were not in my ears properly. I told them I wanted to re-do the post showing the correct way.
The Phiaton earphones are a great product and stay in your ears securely when put in correctly. There is this this little loop that fits inside your ear that helps them to stay in. Now we are talkin’ and listenin’!
*Phiaton has compensated me for the previous post. I have chosen to post again so that consumers know how to put the earphones in their ear.
