Insurance For Your Instagram?! Game Changer!

Hi everyone! Today we have a super exciting blog post. I know so many of us worry about our social media getting hacked and losing that income until we are able to get it back. I know it’s a huge concern for me, especially since that is how I make my income.

That’s where Notch comes in! They are insurance for your Instagram. How cool is that? With so many accounts getting hacked every single day – even those with two factor authentication set up – this is really a must have for a creator.

If you insure your account with Notch, you get: 

  • Real time monitoring. They constantly check for suspicious activity and alert you immediately if they detect something. 
  • Crisis management. If you get hacked, Notch’s team will help you retrieve your account ASAP. 
  • Financial safety net. For every day you’re locked out of your account (for up to 90 days), Notch will pay you to cover your loss of income

Not only that, but you can even make more money from brands by insuring your account. 85% of marketers said they’d pay extra to work with a creator with social media insurance, because it helps alleviate their concerns about brand safety.

For business-savvy creators, this seems like a no-brainer. 

You can get your free quote now by clicking this link – it starts from just $8 a month.

If you are wanting peace of mind when it comes to your Instagram account, be sure to check out Notch! It is such a relief not to have to worry as much about what would happen for me if my account was hacked. I invested in Notch in case anything were to happen to my account! I know so many girls on Instagram that have been hacked and I was always scared that it would happen to me. Now I feel a lot more comfortable in case someone ever tries!

Be sure to watch my reel for additional information on what Notch is and why you should be using it is a creator.

How To Monetize Your Social Media

Hi everyone! If you follow me on Instagram you know that I recently started up my Patreon again. I created it just for creators who want to grow and monetize their platforms.

The Patreon has three different tiers, depending on what you are looking for.

Click here to check out the Patreon.

I have $10, $25, and $35 levels. The higher the level, the more benefits you get. If you are so wanting to go full time blogging and influencing I would highly suggest the two higher level packages.

The Software Creators Need

Hi friends! I know I have a lot of fellow creators that follow along, who want help on all things blogging! This post is a little different than my typical advice, but so practical for those of us who spend so much time on our computers!

Solve iQ is an amazing software for your PC to help keep things running like you need them to! If you are tired of your computer running slow or lagging zoom calls, you need this!

I know personally I always have a lot going on, on my computer! I end up with multiple pages open while I’m working and I need them all to be able to keep up.

I recently took my PC on a trip, I stayed in and Airstream and thankfully I had Solve iQ to be able to get work done! Slow internet wasn’t a problem!

Anyone who spends time on their computer working absolutely needs to get Solve iQ for their PC! When you are using the Productivity Software, it’s so helpful to know what could possibly be causing any slowness in your PC!

For my gamer friends this software would also be so helpful! I have so many people in mind who could benefit from using Solve iQ. If you are like me you will also probably love having the 24/7 support! I seem to always have technical trouble and knowing I will be able to get help when I need it, is key for me!

How To Write An Instagram Bio

Coming up with a great bio on Instagram can be difficult! When I am coaching women I see them struggling with what to include. My number one tip is to include searchable information with your name.

You can see I have my name and I included AZ blogger because I wanted it to be searchable for anyone looking for bloggers located in my state! This has helped me get lots of great opportunities. Then I talk about what it is that you can expect from me on my page. I also use beacons for all of my links, which is incredibly helpful!

If you are looking for help getting companies to work with you be sure to reach out to me, or purchase my ebook!

How To Work With Brands

How to work with companies as an influencer/blogger?! I love teaching this to bloggers. I coach and I also have an ebook on this topic!

First, I would say to make sure to interact with them on Instagram. Companies want to see that you have a genuine love for the company! This will help get you noticed.

Next, have a pitch ready for them! I like to have a general email that I can switch up depending on the company, and add in personal touches to.

Last, have an Instagram that is business friendly! Be professional, and have a great aesthetic. This draws companies to you, which is how I get a ton of my collaborations.

These are just a couple simple tips to get you started. If you are serious about growing your page and turning it into a business I highly recommend grabbing the ebook!

How To Say No To A Brand

To all of my blogger and influencer friends- Saying no to a brand can be hard! It is totally okay to set the boundaries of what you want. Don’t be afraid to walk away if they are not meeting your requirements!

It can be difficult to say no or to push for what it is that you deserve. I hear bloggers all the time saying they don’t know what they should be paid and there are a lot of brand that take advantage of that. I have worked with tons of different kinds of companies and one thing I have not been afraid to say is- no.

But how do you politely say no? If you want to work with a brand you don’t want to just automatically say no but you can negotiate for what it is that you want.

Here is an example of what to say to a brand-

Thank you so much again for being open to a partnership with me. At this time my content calendar only allows for guaranteed post spots for paid campaigns. Photoshoots, editing, writing captions, engaging with my audience & answering questions all takes time and talent and I want to make sure my content is as high quality as possible.. Like any business it is very hard to work for free. I’d love to continue this discussion so we could come together to make a great partnership happen.

This is a great way of saying- I am also a business. Please pay me for my time and work I am putting into this.

As a full time creator I take negotiating my terms very seriously! I need to be able to support myself financially, so I have no problem turning away collaborations that don’t want to pay me for my time.

If you want to know how to find paid partnerships and grow your audience I have an ebook on how I grew mine. Click here for the ebook ! It is currently on sale for only $20. If you are needing help coming up with content I also have a content idea planner to help! Grab now for only $7!

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.
