As you already got from the title, I will talk about my GF and her desire to become an influencer and make money on Instagram by promoting different beauty products there. I don’t mind her having a hobby, but is it worth quitting a full-time job? I’ve decided to start this thread to help me get some arguments to prove that quitting a full-time job for affiliate marketing is not the best idea. At least, it is not worth it in the first stages when everything is uncertain. OR, you can also prove that her idea is worth trying and dedicated to the entire time.
My GF became obsessed with different beauty tutorials, and shopping hauls on YouTube. She can watch them non-stop and also buy the same pointless she promoted on social media channels. Also, she brags about her purchases on her Instagram and adds different hashtags to get noticed by some brands. Basically, at the moment, she spends way more money on it. Instead, she makes it on her own. I don’t mind treating her and spoiling her a bit, but this is too much.
I told her that she needed way more followers to become a part of the affiliate program and get some contracts, rather than 500 followers. So, recently, I’ve received a notification from the bank that she paid from my account to this service — https://famoid.com/buy-instagram-followers/. Guess what happened after that? Did she buy 11K followers? Do you think that this can really help to get some contracts about partnership and promoting? Isn’t all those followers supposed to be active and also provide comments and likes? Or I just don’t get it?
So, I’ve tried to google something about it and found out that those kinds of tricks can help boost the number of followers and even attract some active followers. But it works when you continue to post engaging content regularly and actually find out to find your niche and what your audience likes.
Still, I wonder how many of you started their ‘career’ in affiliate marketing this way?
