¡Hola, Chica! Let’s get this party started by taking a deeper look into today’s topic: 5 Ways to Make Money Online as an Influencer. As always, drop a comment in the comment section of this blog post, so we can ALL keep the Party going & genuinely learn new value from each other!
Truth is, we cannot precisely quantify the effects of the pandemic on the job market in March 2020. However, it is clear that the decrease in employment and hours and the increase in unemployment can be ascribed to effects of the illness and efforts to contain the virus (Jill Mislinski, Advisors Perspectives)
But, you’ve heard enough gloom and doom so-to-speak, haven’t you? I want this blog post to be a breathe of fresh air, sense of encouragement, and beacon of hope to you trying to make money online as an influencer.
In light of the current uncertain circumstance with employment-rates, you’re going to learn five legitimate ways to make money online as an influencer. No matter if you’ve lost your job, or if you’re interested in diving ALL in and pursuing your own online revenue stream, this blog post is for you.
Here’s the deal, I know first-hand that starting a blog can be a massive undertaking. There’s a lot of ends & outs to blogging. But, it opens up a unique path for making money, via the sharing of information, to help a specific audience. And, you can utilize so many different outlets to generate cash in one single blog post.
As an example, you write a ChicaBlog Post on the topic: 15 Ways to Boost Creativity While in Quarantine.
Amazon Affiliate (or alternative affiliate program) sales = $100
Watches Brand Partnership advertising = $300
Payment from Google Ads for YouTube video views = $200
FINALLY, TOTAL EARNINGS = $600
Remember, this is for a single blog post that you share. Now, imagine if you shared two blog posts a week with this same framework? In general, that could equal of TOTAL EARNINGS of $1,200 a week. This is actually a minimal amount you can potentially generate, overtime. But, my point is, it’s so doable make money online as an influencer, even from home.
Truthfully, this process doesn’t happen overnight. It does take time.

Truly, there is a crazy huge rise in the NEED for useful software.
This software you create could range from a specialist app used to solve a particular niche problem — OR even a silly, time-wasting game people can play on their phone. You can truly create a massively successful business (online!) if you build software that really helps and/or entertains people.
Have you heard of the software app Slack? This was a simple, side-project at first. Now, it’s a $2 billion company in JUST two years.
1. To begin with, you have a great idea for a software app, you validate the idea with real customers, you raise money to hire developers to build, launch, and scale your software. Next, if everything is made right, your software will be accepted to the Apple and Google Stores. Then, you’ll then make money every time someone downloads it or pays for a premium feature.
2. Or, the cheaper path assumes that you have the design and development skills yourself to build your dream, amazing software. Of course, this will take more time to get your software off the ground. But, being able to lead the development of your software app lets you retain more ownership IN your business and be MORE in control of your path. So, that makes this a lower-cost (but higher time investment) towards making money with your software.
Another amazing software app example is the up-and-coming app for female entrepreneurs called Society Gal – a Social Marketplace, Where Entrepreneurs & Creatives Connect, Collaborate, Buy & Sell. I am a proud contributor to this app – and I have the pleasure of seeing it mold and grow from ground up! This app is currently in private beta. Looking forward to it coming fully available for you!
This is actually one of the OLDEST and MOST TESTED ways of making money online as influencer.
You can do any of the following:
For example, sites like Shopify make it so seamless to manage your OWN online shop by which you sell your own physical products.
1— Ask yourself, how much stock you’re going to carry
2— Then, decide how you’re going to fund upfront purchasing costs
3— Lastly, choose where you’re going to store your inventory.
By the way, here’s a unique well to sell physical products online:
Drop shipping: (noun)
When you effectively partner with a manufacturer or wholesaler to sell their products.
1— You do not pay upfront costs to buy inventory
2— You are not sitting on unsold items
3— You do not have to deal with shipping the products yourself. You simply create your site, fill it with drop shoppable products, then drive in customers. But, and almost everything else done for you.
Just so you know, there’s a higher price per product (and your margins are lower). But, you’re able to start your online store with little more than a Shopify framework and some unique images of your physical products.
In general, when a customer makes a purchase, you in turn buy the product from your supplier who then ships it directly to your customer.
That being said, there’s no inventory. And, there’s no handling products yourself. Nor is there shipping by hand.
In general, these platforms do take a percentage of your earrings. But, it’s a great means to market your physical products on a vast scale, if you’re just getting started. Also, these platforms are very beneficial if you do not want to manage (or pay) for your own e-commerce site.
Recently, I had the opportunity to partner with Jessica Lynn, Poshmark reseller. And, I shared the experience in my Instagram stories. In general, I offered her the clothes I planned to sell (or donate) in exchange for payment. As a result, she received more high-quality inventory. And, I was compensated for the clothes and had them taken off my hands. Over all, this as an excellent Great win/win! Plus, I established a new, amazing relationship with Jessica.
And, you can also start selling your knowledge (and advice) in an area you specialize in within your influencing business.
Honestly, there are TONS of people willing to pay for your time, if you can provide your own expertise from genuine experience.
Being an online coach or consultant is a GREAT alternative way to make money online as an influencer, instead of giving your client ongoing deliverables (like when you’re a freelancer).
As a whole, you’re teaching them to be better, faster, and stronger than their competition in a 1:1 intimate experience. Your expertise actually becomes the product you’re selling.
The Kajabi platform has provided a seamless, hassle-free means to setup my Consulting Services. If you’re looking for a platform to host your Coaching & Consulting Services, you are in total luck! In my opinion, choose Kajabi.
Amazingly, online courses are your means to package your knowledge into a high-value course and sell it for YEARS on YEARS to come.
Truly, courses are a form of passive income. And by passive, this simply means that once the upfront time and effort is put in, with just a bit of regular upkeep (and marketing) you’ll be able to continue selling and making money as an influencer from them for months and years.
BASIC COURSE-CREATION STEPS YOU NEED TO CONSIDER TO MAKE MONEY AS AN INFLUENCER:
I’ve made several online courses, and the beauty really is in the process. I recommend more of a limited-time offer Program. One that is released on a week-by-week basis for “X” weeks — to generate more accountability and encourage your ChicaMembers to stick to the Program and thus see positive results.
