How Many Influencers Does It Take to Change a Lightbulb?
Too many to follow!
Ok bad jokes aside…
Becoming a social media influencer is all the rage these days…
For many people the dream of having more freedom to set your own schedule and enjoy life is almost irresistible.
There’s even Dog influencers nowadays!
But there’s a catch.
To be an influencer you have to have a lot of followers.
Well, according to new research you need at least:
- 1,000 YouTube subscribers and about 24 million yearly views to generate $100,000
- 5,000 Instagram followers and 308 sponsored posts a year to generate $100,000
- Or 10,000 TikTok subscribers and over 270 million views a year to generate $100,000
And, of course, you have to work hard to keep those followers once you have them – an influencer can never just automate their business, kick back and relax…
That’s why I am all about more passive business models. Which for me looks like this –
Step 1 – Find a ‘Blue Sky’ non-obvious product to sell on Amazon
Step 2 – List it on Amazon and get it over to their Warehouse
Step 3 – Potentially Watch Sales come in
I love this model, because I can be on the beach generating new income on Amazon – without needing to take endless selfies of myself to post on Social media.
I can just relax and have fun with my kids – which to me is what life is all about.
