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.
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!
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.
I have always gotten a lot of questions about the makeup I use, and even though it has changed here and here throughout the years some things stay the same!
I will be showing off and linking all of my everyday products. This post will be my full face of makeup. The only thing I didn’t include was how I apply it. I use a beauty sponge and very simple brushes!
Here are all of the products I use on pretty much a daily basis! I start off with my favorite primer by Tula before I apply my foundation and concealer. This primer is seriously amazing and if you order it off of their website you can use my code 15Chloe for a discount on your first purchase.
I used to only use the Tarte Shape Tape but now I use the E.L.F. Camo concealer. I think it works just as well at a lower price point! I then go in with my Urban Decay foundation which has been one of my all time favorites since I was in high school!
I love all things Charlotte Tilbury and if I could use pretty much all Charlotte I would! A lot of my go to products are by her.
I use mostly high end but I have a couple E.L.F products that do a great job and I really like those ones!
I will link my LIKEtoKNOW.it if you want to shop any of these items!
Hi everyone! I am so so excited because yesterday my collection with https://instagram.com/hippiesandcowboysboutique went live. This is just the start of my collection. I released a limited amount of stuff for the month of April and will be adding on more for May! I had so much fun picking these items out and even getting to name some of them!
I have had so much love and support over the collection and it’s been amazing! It means the world to me that anyone would shop it and if you buy anything please tag me on Instagram @thebusybrunetteblog so I can see!
These items were some of the very first in my collection that I got sent for approval. I loved them all so much and had the best time picking out names!
Hi everyone! I don’t tend to get too personal on social media but I love updating the blog and getting to really write important stuff down to look back on.
This last year has been a really crazy one. I started this business and threw myself into full time influencing/blogging. I also started coaching and wrote a couple ebooks! In the past year I’ve grown my following by the thousands and starting helping other women do the same.
I took a job for a very short period of time that I knew was not the one for me at all. That lasted about two months and I am back to full time influencing, which is what I really love. I am also going to be getting my real estate license (which I wish I had with this crazy market).
I lost someone close to me, and have learned a lot because of it. This world has been full of so many challenges and it has been all about taking it day by day.
I have gotten to work with some incredible companies and have been able to make more money as a micro-influencer than I did at that other job.
If you are wanting to be able to do the same thing I do I do one on one coaching and I also sell my ebook!
For my birthday this year I asked for a clothing rack! I have been wanting one for a couple years now. I ordered mine off of Amazon and it was perfect for my room! It fits great in the spot and I love being able to display items I love.
This is what the rack looked like completely empty! It matches perfectly with my room. I wanted to display purses and some other items on the side and try to stick to neutrals for the clothing items.
This is not the final look for my clothing rack! I am still messing around with it and plan on getting some other items for the shelves. So far I am happy with the progress and can’t wait to do more decorating!
Here is the link for my clothing rack if you are interested in purchasing it!
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!
