Publisher's Summary

If you've ever scrolled through your Instagram feed and thought, I wear clothes, eat avocado toast and like sunsets. Why can't someone pay me to live my best life? this book is for you....

Every one of your favorite influencers started with zero followers and had to make a lot of mistakes to get where they are today - earning more money each year than their parents made in the last decade. But to become a top creator, you need to understand the strategies behind the Insta-ready lifestyle.

As nightlife blogger, then social media strategist, and now talent director at Hearst Magazines, Brittany Hennessy has seen the role of influencers evolve and expand into something that few could have imagined when social media first emerged. She has unrivaled insight into where the branded content industry was, where it is, and where it's going. In this book she'll reveal how to:

  • Build an audience and keep them engaged
  • Package your brand and pitch your favorite companies
  • Monetize your influence and figure out how much to charge

Plus tips on:

  • Landing an agent
  • Getting on the radar of your favorite sites
  • Praising a brand without alienating their competitors

Whether you're just starting out or you're ready for bigger campaigns, Hennessy guides you through core influencer principles, from creating content worth double tapping and using hashtags to get discovered to understanding FTC rules and delivering metrics. She'll show you how to elevate your profile, embrace your edge, and make money - all while doing what you love.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

More useful when you have a high number of followers but overall helpful

This book provided a lot of great advice on things to keep in mind as you navigate the influencer life. I felt like it was directed more towards people with thousands of followers but as someone who has less than 1000, there are things I can implement now to save myself from issues in the future.

Not very insightful

Do you have a lot of social media followers? If yes, then start a blog, make your profile pic one of your face, and include your email to facilitate recruitment from potential sponsors. There, saved you a credit!

This is an Influencer Handbook

This is a must read for anyone remotely interested in being a Professional Blogger/Vlogger Influencer. Loved hearing from an insider‘s perspective on how things work, what you should do, what you shouldn’t do - “don’t be that girl”, how you should do it and so much more. I will be re-listening to this and I’ve already highlighted parts of the physical book. Thank you Brittany for breaking it down for everyone. Highly recommend anyone who’s serious about leveraging social media and growing their own brand to STUDY this book. Yes, STUDY not just read.

Common sense, really waste of time.. Full of BS

All what’s in this book is commonsense you dont need to have any experience, Im sure she didnt spend more than 1 hr researching just typing from randomly..

I expected to hear stories of successful ppl, steps how to be influencer, what users like to to see, and secrets... However, she only says common sense stuff that are useless

Dont waste ur time and money

Really good information as far as a heads up.

I really like the author. She sounds really cool and down to earth. She did a good job in giving great advice and she knows the industry very well. This book would be better broken up into beginner, intermediate, and expert books though.

nothing about how to be one...

talks a lot about what not to do and what they look for, but pretty useless information.
