Want to ditch your day job and do something you love? In an age where anyone with a camera and internet access can post on social media, the possibility to become a full time content creator is very much a reality! Yes the competition to gain real attention as an influencer is stiff, but if you have 3k followers or more on Instagram, Twitter or YouTube, you can turn this into an income. So here are The Blogger Programme’s 4 tips to help you on your path to becoming a full time content creator…
It can take alot of time and hard work reaching out to brands directly and trying to suggest a collaboration that way, so make your life easier and sign up to a platform like TBP where the opportunities are presented to you every day.

Next, select a campaign, read the brief and if the stars align, it’s time to get started!
If you’ve never earned money from your social media posts before, it can be hard to put a value on yourself. So TBP have given you some ballpark rates that you can earn per social post, making it easier to name your price.
If there’s anything to remember when it comes to your content, it’s to be yourself. Apply your own personal flair and take some creative risks.
