How To Grow and Make Money on LIKEtoKNOW.it

This post is for all of my blogger/influencer friends who are struggling to make money on LIKEtoKNOW.it. I struggled with it for a long time when I first started and in the past year have really just started changing what it is that I do to make money off of the app.

The one thing that actually really started to change the game for me was to post everything on Pinterest. Pinterest is so underutilized and I hardly used it for a long time. I have realized the more consistent I am with it the more views I am getting every month and it just keeps growing.

I also use searchable keywords for people that are shopping the app. This helps me so much! I also post some of them to my social media but I don’t want to overwhelm my followers with tons of graphics and things like that.

Growing on LIKEtoKNOW.it is hard, I have found success in growing by staying consistent and using incentives for people to follow me on there.

I have learned that just being extremely consistent and posting to the app at least 5 times a day is really what will help you generate money and really maximize the app.

I hope these couple tips helped you if you are struggling with seeing return on the app. It is very competitive but it is possible to make money off of LIKEtoKNOW.it.

Packing For Road Trip

I love road tripping! Every year my boyfriend and I go to Wyoming in the summer. It is such a nice escape from the Arizona heat! One thing I love about not flying is that I can pack whatever I want! I brought a duffel bag and my suit case, which is what I usually do for the trip. We are going for 10 days! I like to have a variety of outfits and I am a classic overpacker.

My suitcase has pockets for shoes and a couple zippered areas. I used the large one for underwear and bathing suits. I left the other one empty to put my dirty stuff in!

I also have two sides which I try to divide up. I use one side for the majority of my clothing and the other for most of the other stuff plus whatever clothes don’t fit.

In my duffel I put all of my makeup and toiletries and anything else I could possibly need! Since we are driving I am leaving my cowgirl boots out of my bags and will just throw them in the truck with everything else!

I personally don’t like packing but I try to make it organized at first, because when I come home my luggage is a total mess!

Side Hustle Ideas 2021

There is no better time to start a side hustle then now! I myself have a bunch of side hustles. In fact some would consider my job a side hustle! Depending on how much time you have, I have made a list of some great side hustles to make more money this year.

First one is blogging! This is my full time job. I work as an influencer/blogger. You can make money through affiliate marketing, paid collabs’s and some other ways! I also coach women how to do this which is part of my side hustle!

Become a tutor/teacher. There are tons of ways to do this! I know people who work for VIP Kid and love it. You can pick what hours you work. This one you must have a degree but it doesn’t have to be in teaching.

Selling old items or things you just don’t need anymore. I sell my clothes and tons of other stuff. I love clearing out my closet and room because as a blogger I receive free items and also shop a lot.

Find a passion and make money off of it. What are you passionate about? Or what are you good at? How can you turn it into a side hustle? I personally have horses and use that on the side!

An ebook is a great way to make more money! I have an ebook on how to grow your Instagram to 10K and work with companies! Here is the link for the ebook.

You can also have additional digital products to sell based off of your knowledge! I have one of these also and priced it to sell! Link to my content planner.

I hope you found this post helpful! Follow me for weekly blog posts.

A Day In The Life Of A Full Time Blogger

Welcome or welcome back to the blog! For those of you who don’t know my name is Chloe, I am an Arizona based blogger and influencer. This is my full time job and I love it! I am also trying to get into real estate but that is another topic for another day.

I wanted to go through what some of my days are like working as a blogger! It is a super misunderstood job and most people have ideas about what it may be like vs what it is really like.

My day usually starts out waking up between 6:15 and 7. I don’t set an alarm this is just when I naturally wake up. I start by checking my email and seeing if I have gotten any messages from brands. I get tons of emails every day and try to be really good about keeping track of them!

I then move on to engagement on Instagram. I like to make sure I respond to all of my comments and DMs that I haven’t gotten to yet.

I usually get up and get ready for my day after that. I like to take a little time to meditate and prepare myself for the day. I also make sure to eat breakfast, because I know I won’t feel good if I skip it. After I’ve gotten ready I spend some time working on graphics on Canva. I run multiple accounts so I like to make sure I have lots of content for each account. I also create my LIKEtoKNOW.it graphics and see what clothing is new and what’s on sale that I think my audience will love. I then share it to Instagram and also Pinterest!

I have been trying to get in at home workouts but that doesn’t always happen, I need to get better about it. I like to take little breaks throughout the afternoon because being on your phone and computer for so long is draining. I catch up on shows I have missed while I have lunch and read some of the book I review for the book of the month!

I like to take time to research trends and things I can use to increase my visibility online. I am constantly working on bettering my content and overcoming the algorithm! I also like to make a list of potential collaborations and send out pitch emails around this time.

In the early to late afternoon I do my post for the day. I don’t plan posts so I have to make sure I am available for at least an hour around that time to ensure that, that post is successful!

I usually work on a blog post or do research for an upcoming blog post to round out my day. I do keep engaging and responding to comments and DMs until usually I go to bed.

I also have content shoot days which are a little different! For those I pack a bag of things I have received from companies or that I have purchased that I think people will like. I meet up with a blogger friend and we shoot at a designated location for the day. This usually takes a couple hours at least and then I go home and review, delete and edit all of the photos that I took for the day.

One thing I love about blogging is that every day is different and that is part of the fun! I am never bored and I am always thankful I am not sitting at a desk in an office I hate.

How To Gain New Instagram Followers Every Single Day

Hi everyone! Because I coach other women and help them to grow their following, and I also wrote an ebook on the topic, I thought I would share some easy tips on how to grow your followers everyday!

My first tip is to post at least 4 days a week when it comes to in feed photos. This may seem like a lot or it may seem manageable! I like to try to post five photos a week but that doesn’t always happen.

Next post reels every week. This is the tip that is much harder to do but I have seen create so much success. Instagram actually recommends that you post at least 3 in feed photos at 4 reels every single week to grow your following. And also be posting to stories everyday!

This one may seem simple but having an easy on the eyes feed is a good way to grow followers. If you feed looks like a mess and has a lot of low quality or poorly edited photos, not may people will want to follow you.

The companies that I work with always say they love my feed, and I get a lot of collaboration requests because of it. When I talk to the girls that I coach I go over their feed with them and show them what is working and what isn’t.

I also like to promote my posts. This is a great tool to grow without having to join any giveaways or anything like that! You will gain likes on your photos and new followers if you are promoting quality photos!

I hope these quick and easy tips helped you. If you are needing more help make sure to check out my ebook or DM my coaching page @thebusybco for private sessions!

How To Get More Story Views On Instagram

Like many bloggers and content creators, I can sometimes struggle with getting my content seen. I have been testing out ways to push my Instagram story out to more people. These tips actually really work and it have helped me so much!

1. Post at times when your engagement for your audience is higher. You can click on the live button to see how many people are on Instagram currently, that normally interact with your content.

2. Use up to 10 hashtags and also tag your location. These are pretty basic tips but they do help get your content seen by more people.

3. Wait 12 to 24 hours to post again, to try to boost your content when views are lower.

4. This is the game changer right here…after following those steps put up a poll as your first story. Usually when I get the most views it’s on the weekend when I wait 12 to 24 hours and then post a poll first. Instagram likes when you use their features and this really works!

I hope you found this super helpful and that you try it and it works for you. This has really helped me especially with Instagram testing out some different things. I have seen my engagement as well as many other bloggers engagement, go up and down. Try not to get discouraged and use these tips when you need a boost!

Chic Wish Lookbook

Hi everyone! If you know me, you know I love fashion and styling clothes. This weeks post will feature clothes from Chic Wish. They have a great selection of clothing, there is something for everyone on their website.

This first look is an all black outfit. I paired this pleated leather skirt with a black body suit and my favorite over the knee boots.

This next one was more out of my comfort zone. I would typically wear this at home to lounge in but wearing it out I paired it with boots and a jean jacket to style it up!

This sweater is super thick and comfy! I love it with these boots and faux leather leggings. This bag also matched perfectly!

This sweater is also another great one! Very tick material. I love it with these riding boots.

I will link all of these items for you to shop! Shop all of the looks here !

Sedona Day Trip

Living in Arizona is amazing! This state has so much to offer and one of my favorite little road trips is Sedona. I live only an hour and a half away which makes it the perfect escape for the day.

My best friend and I headed up to enjoy lunch, take some pictures, and enjoy the change of scenery. We mostly hung out around Tlaquepaque. Our first stop was The Secret Garden! It is one of my favorite places for lunch. The food is amazing, and they have a covered patio for seating. I highly recommend trying the Taos Club, it is delicious.

Because of the wind and the weather they had the plastic down.

We spent most of the rest of the time walking around. It is so beautiful there. It is busier in the winter, most of the time I go to Sedona during the summer months so there are less people walking around.

Being there you almost feel like you are in another country. It is stunningly picturesque. Day tripping or vacationing in Sedona in general is a great break from reality.

Nicole and I took tons of photos for Instagram! Make sure to follow along on https://www.instagram.com/thebusybrunetteblog and if you are interested in shopping my looks Click Here !

How To Stay Motivated Blogging/On Instagram

This weeks post is a highly requested one. I’ve gotten asked on Instagram many times how I stay motivated to post and to keep creating content. The answer is actually pretty simple…I love it! I genuinely enjoy what I do. I have a great time meeting up with my blogger friends to shoot photos and I have gotten to work with some incredible brands.

Doing what I love motivates me! I know the harder I work and the more consistent I am the more opportunities I get. This job is all about what you make from it. This year has been an extremely hard one. With so many ups and downs this has been consistent for me. I have also been able to grow and get better at what it is that I do.

I have been lucky enough to work with some big brands and gotten chosen for some exciting collabs. Some of my favorite collaborations have been from companies who have reached out to me! They love my page and they pick me to advertise their product and that feels like such an honor.

I got to work with Stella Artois, and they picked me as their micro-influencer for their campaign. That felt absolutely amazing! I had such a great time learning how to work with a bigger company like theirs.

I decided I needed to help other women be able to work with brands and I started my one on one coaching page. I knew that, that wasn’t enough and maybe some people didn’t want one on one so I created an affordable EBook also to help them land paying collabs.

I stay motivated knowing I am making progress and growing. I love to write everything down and to look back and see how far I have come. I consistently add new goals to accomplish and that keeps me motivated.

If you are wanting one on one coaching go to my Instagram page- https://instagram.com/thebusybco

If you just want the EBook- https://gumroad.com/l/YMskz

I hope this helps someone and puts them on a path to success.
