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.

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!

My Top Summer Vacation Spots

Hi everyone! With the world starting to open up more, people are finally starting to vacation again! I can’t wait to travel and go to some of my favorite states.

I’ll be heading to Wyoming and then Utah around the 4th of July and I can’t wait! My boyfriend and I drive there during the summer. It takes over 15 hours to get there but it is totally worth it. I love sightseeing along the way. There are so many beautiful places you drive through depending on which way you want to take!

We stay in a small town outside of Jackson Hole, WY. They put on the really fun 4th and it is such a good time. I want to go back to Yellowstone again this year. I have such a good time there, it is absolutely breathtaking. There are tons of things to do in Wyoming! The nature is definitely the best part. Driving around you will see bears and elk and all sorts of cool wildlife. We also love the natural hot springs located in a town a couple hours away.

This year we plan on taking our time going back through Utah and doing some exploring there! They have tons of very cool places such as right outside Provo in the canyons there are lakes and lots of fun activities to do there! We will also hopefully stop a couple times closer to AZ and sightsee over there. I will be making an updated travel guide for both Utah and Wyoming!

I have a couple of other places I am planning on making a trip to around AZ and also New Mexico! My boyfriend has a cabin right on the border of those states so we will be going there a few times to escape the heat. I also love doing day trips to Sedona, Flagstaff, and Prescott!

Hopefully we will also book a California trip to be able to enjoy the beach for a few days. I haven’t been to the beach in forever so I’m hoping we will get a hotel or Airbnb booked in Laguna or around there!

I already can’t wait to get out of this Arizona heat and go explore!

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.

Favorite Makeup Products

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!

Life Update

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!

Book Of The Month

This month I am starting something new! It is called Book of the Month. I will be posting and reviewing a new book every single month. Some will be fiction and some will be non-fiction that way there is something for everyone.

I just recently finished a new book that I really really enjoyed reading! It took me two days to get through and I would definitely recommend for a fast fun read.

It’s called She’s Faking It by Kristin Rockaway. The story follows Bree and her series of unfortunate life events that lead her to being car-less and jobless. She starts up an Instagram page and follows along with a life guru, and tries to turn it all around. Meanwhile she’s falling for the cute pro surfer next door.

I would highly recommend this one. Definitely a 4.5 stars out of 5! It is cute and funny and will definitely hook you in. I passed on the book for my friend to read and also hopefully enjoy as much as I did.

I have a lineup of books that I will be reading and reviewing and who knows I may throw in an extra one sometimes, depending on how many books I read in the month!
