Social Media Jobs For Moms – True Story
I’m Crystal. I’m a nurse and a mom. I’ve got three kids and I live in San Antonio.
I blog at Love More Live Blessed. It’s a lifestyle blog, and I focus on positivity and encouraging other moms.
I think I started Influencers 101 the very first time they launched it.
I thought, why not? I was kind of stuck.
Twitter was scary to me, because I had no idea how to use it.
I had no idea what to do with it.
It was scary.
Once I enrolled in Influencers 101, it’s literally like somebody’s holding your hand, walking you through it step by step, and you see the results.
I went from 200 followers to, I have 11,000 right now, which is amazing because I’m promoting myself on there.
I’m promoting Amazon links on there.
Amazon affiliates are paying for my ConvertKit every month. So, I don’t have to worry about that.
And it helped with my Linqia campaigns big time. It was just perfect, step by step instructions of how to do that. So, that was good.
It’s so easy.
I learned about Influencers 101, I think, in February.
I got sick in February and I spent a whole weekend on the couch. That’s when I started following.
Then, that weekend, I gained 300 or 400 followers and I was like, I can keep doing this every single day.
It’s super simple.
You just have to do it.
Even for me, I know nothing about Twitter.
I didn’t even like social media.
I hated Facebook. Now, you’ll see my face all over it and like it. It’s just everywhere.
So, it’s possible.
I took Influencers 101 and started building up my Instagram and my Twitter, because I remember you had said in there, copying followers works for Instagram, too.
I got really good at social media for myself.
I had pitched to a local kids’ entertainment place, and I had asked them if they wanted to trade—I would do a blog post on them, and they would let us get it for free.
We loved it. We have already paid for it several times, but we just wanted to do a post for it.
I went in to meet with the manager, and as I’m sitting with her she’s like, you know, my social media manager quit.
Basically, asking me, do I want to take it over?
I was a little nervous at first, but like I said earlier, I was really comfortable and I knew that Twitter, I could do it for sure.
Facebook and Instagram, I might have to work a little harder and research more for them, but Twitter, I got it down.
I said yes.
We agreed on a set amount, and we’re able to go to that place for free. My kids can go any time we want. We go at least once a week, which they love that perk.
If I hadn’t done the Influencers 101 and didn’t know what I know about social media, there is no way that I would have been like, yeah, pay me for this and I’ll figure it out.
I know what I’m doing.
Yes, I will accept your payment.
I do it from home in my pajamas.
I think my first breakthrough moment was when I was using Influencers 101’s tips to meet my campaign clicks for Linqia. I met it in two days, and I was like, oh my gosh. This is possible. I’ve met all my clicks.
I sat down and did maybe two hours of work, and I set up Tweets for a whole week or whatever, and I was done. I made all my clicks, and I made money passively. That was the breakthrough, I think.
This really works.
You really can make money off of Twitter.
It was great. I loved it. I was addicted. I love blogging. I’m addicted to it. Obsessed.
I actually had a company from Florida reach out to me and ask me to go to a restaurant opening. We’ve been getting invited to a lot of restaurant openings, which is nice because we love free dinners.
I was like, how did you find me?
They said, we researched influencers in San Antonio. That made me happy. I’m like, I’m making my mark somewhere out there.
People are finding me.
I’m also working on a project for Extended Stay Hotels. I’ve done reviews for them in the past. We’re going, I think towards the end of May, we’re going to go to Corpus and stay for the weekend and review it. So, that’s coming up for me.
Since taking Influencers 101, my Twitter followers has grown.
Any time that you sign up for some kind of an affiliate program or Social Fabric, Linqia, any of those kind of programs, they want to know what your reach is.
So, Twitter is a huge part of my reach because it’s not so strong on Facebook.
I haven’t learned the Facebook game yet.
Instagram is very frustrating. I love Instagram. It’s fun, but it’s very frustrating.
Then, Pinterest, I’m trying. I’m getting traffic from Pinterest, but it’s not all coming together.
Twitter is like, okay, I know I at least have Twitter.
I can pitch them, let’s do a Twitter campaign and I’ll do this many Tweets for you.
This is the reach. This is the reach I have.
I have my analytics. I can show them everything, and it’s just a little easier for my blog just to have that Twitter coming in. The Twitter audience coming in. Yeah, it’s amazing.
My life is different, though, because Influencers 101 definitely was a game changer for my blog.
I think getting the followers on there and getting people reaching out to me for, I’ll give you this if you do that through Twitter was encouraging for me as a new blogger.
It gave me confidence, and I definitely found my voice in blogging.
I know that I have good content and I know that Twitter is a great way to promote myself and other businesses that I believe in or people that I believe in.
It’s changed my life.
My kids love going to theme parks for free or getting free stuff.
They love it.
They love the perks.
I remember we were at a water park and my son’s like, I’m so glad you’re blogging, Mom. I’m like, okay, that’s awesome. Thank you. Blogging is amazing.
It’s a lot of fun for your whole family.
I think I knew my investment paid off when I was able to complete my pay-per-click campaign within a weekend. I’m like, okay, I don’t have to worry about building up any more Tweets or promoting it anywhere. I can just let it go and move onto the next thing.
Yeah, Influencers 101 is definitely worth the investment.
I made my money back probably within the first two months and more.
For someone that’s on the fence for enrolling into Influencers 101, I would say just do it.
Your blog is going to change.
You’re going to be confident.
There’s so many things that you can do with Twitter and with blogging.
If you don’t step out, nothing’s going to change.
If you keep doing the same thing, it’s not going to change.
You have to invest in yourself as a blogger into courses and products like cameras or whatever that make you better, and this is definitely one of those courses.
