Here we discuss ways for social media influencers to exploit their talents, experience, and influence by helping brands in their digital marketing to make money out of through revenue streams.
E-products are an increasingly popular way for influencers to make money, since they are relatively cheap and easy to produce, and with seamless distribution they can scale quickly online. From an ebook, downloadable travel guide, or fitness program, to a one-page meal plan or organizational template, e-products can be anything.

Podcasting is another great way for influencers to distribute their content, connect with their audience on a different platform, share content conveniently, and eventually earn revenue from their influence and public profile.
Podcasting can be relatively low cost to produce, once you have the right setup and equipment, and like radio, can drive revenue in a number of ways the most popular is to charge a small fee for downloading and listening to podcast subscribers.
Like podcasting, webinars for influencers and content creators can be a cost-effective revenue model. A webinar is essentially an internet-led seminar, and is usually intended to provide information in an engaging, tutorial-style format for educational purposes. Webinars can either be live, or they can be pre-recorded and shared across platforms of video, blog, and social media.
In order to earn money from webinars, influencers can charge consumers to access the content, work with a brand to produce the content, or use the format to generate lead.
Ambassadors to the Brand
Another effective way for social media influencers to make money is by being a brand ambassador. Due to their structural nature, ongoing ambassadorships are mentioned as the most effective method of influencer marketing. Organizations recruit brand ambassadors for long-term partnerships and retainer pay them out. The influencer is responsible for becoming the supreme expert on the brand or product and for broadcasting his or her partnership with the brand on all social media channels.
Brand ambassadors may be big-time influencers and celebrities, or they can be more local, micro-influencers, depending on campaign and company goals.
Sponsored posts on social media
Although brand ambassadors are usually long term relationships, funded social media posts are more of a ground-breaking strategy to brand recognition and exposure building. This is as far, the most common way of making money for influencers, especially when they start.
A sponsored social media post is when a brand engages and shares it with its followers to create content featuring the brand (it could be one post, two posts, or a series of posts).
Co-creating a physical product, collection, or range is a unique way of generating revenue in collaboration with a brand. From fashion capsule collections and co-branded beauty products to food, fitness, travel, and wellness goods, we see this form of influencer monetization in every niche. Make-up artist and beauty YouTuber Jaclyn Hill with cosmetics brand Becca is a good example of this.
Influencers can also make money by hosting events or making appearances on the store. Brands can collaborate with influencers with similar audiences to draw more attention to an event or the launch of a new product. A perfect example of this, the event. Influencers tend to have strong relations with their fans, and they may generate more buzz around events.

You should be compensated for your work like any other creative, especially when it benefits someone else, so use a range of these strategies to build multiple revenue streams and create your dream job as an influencer.
