Webfluential creators making passive income from content

September 11, 2019 12:39 pm Published by

Influencers and creators are at the heart of our Webfluential ecosystem. We exist to offer them unique ways to earn an income actively through campaign work with brands, and passively through content and affiliate deals.

An exciting partnership where creators are earning an income is through our boutique partnership with Getty Images. There are ongoing campaigns posted by Getty Images that our influencers get exposed to, and can submit their material, that if approved, is available for sale to any client of Getty Images. It’s a simple way to monetise content that’s often already been created, or can be created to fit a particular brief.

Below are two of our favourite images from the last campaign – “Work-life in Africa”. You can buy the images to support the creators by clicking here or here.

 

 

One of the latest briefs open for creator contribution focuses on “human touch”. Webfluential creators can apply for inclusion by visiting this page. Those who don’t yet have a Webfluential account can sign up here.

NB: Brands, you’re Robin, not Batman

August 15, 2019 3:14 pm Published by

Brands and their agencies venturing into the influencer marketing space often make the first fatal mistake, in believing that they’re the hero in the online story. Influencers are storytellers, and in the stories they tell, they’re the superhero – understated or not. Where brands play a meaningful role in the online space is as a supporting role to the influencer. Every brand’s value proposition should talk about how they “enable the transformation” of their customer – in other words, making the customer (and influencer) the hero.

Trevor Noah on Instagram: “When life closes a door…. grab a drill and pop that $%*T off the hinges! 🙌🏾”

 

This week’s example is DeWALT power tools. Trevor Noah is our hero, but their electric drill empowers him to do even more amazing things. Consider the alternative, if Trevor posted the picture of the drill and the same caption, without his symbolic stance of dominance, how much less impact the image would have?

Influencers live and die by their audiences, so they understand their truths, and you can trust them to position your brand or product as their leverage to do more.

Be their Robin, dont try and be Batman.
