How much should you charge for an Instagram post? Whew! That’s a question I get often! Now that I’ve started social media consulting for individuals and entrepreneurs I get lots of questions. Most are centered around making MONEY! For my digital influencers, the desire to work with brands is two-fold: to make money and to create awesome content. Most times, creating awesome content take MONEY and making money comes from creating content.
So, how much should you charge when asked to create content for a brand? Let’s discuss!

Most bloggers have a day job and use blogging as a side-hustle. It’s me, I’m ‘most bloggers’. Truth of the matter, as lucrative as blogging CAN BE, the most diligent of us are making up to $1000 extra month. Now, I’m not going to scoff at the number, but I can’t pay all my bills with free clothes and a couple dollars in my PayPal.

When you become a blogger-influencer it’s easy to get burned out! We are creating content DAILY, checking analytics, fielding emails, and representing yourself as TALENT! Yup, after awhile you’ll want to take a break – but you don’t want followers to lose interest.

Happy first day of summer good people! Getting back on the wagon of giving you a new blogpost every week and adding a special touch, sending out a newsletter as well.
Yes, I’m going back to sending my bi-weekly newsletter as a way of keeping in contact with my diverse group of readers. As a strategist, I preach consistency. As a blogger, I haven’t been very consistent. “‘fess it, and fix it!” is what my old boss used to say, so here I am confessing.
My confession: I didn’t care about my newsletter I only cared about Instagram.
Last Friday, the streets were buzzing with news that Instagram was testing a feature that would remove likes from posts. THE HORROR! How are we to know if everyone is lusting over our new sneakers, amazing vacation, cute bae, or bangin’ outfit?
The Top Five platforms (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, and Youtube) all use some sort of ‘like’ system as a way to show engagement from followers. To imagine a world without am IMMEDIATE response to online content is tricky (and almost unheard of). What does this mean for actual blogger-influencers who report those stats to brands? How would we mesure our influence?
Let’s get down to the nitty-gritty. A spokesperson from Instagram said that, they are “Exploring ways to reduce pressure on Instagram . . .” and it, “is something we’re always thinking about.” However, removing likes isn’t happening anytime soon. Instagram is still trying to get rid of FAKE likes and companies who sell non-organic engagement. So, like, put down you torches and pitchforks, calm down, and keep reading. Because, if the option is being discussed, that means changes ARE coming.

On this weekend’s #Bloggerlifechat (hosted on my instastory, every Saturday – follow me) I discussed the importance of planning your social media/blog content and staying consistent. It’s really important to keep giving the people what they want and doing it on a consistent basis. And, since it’s the beginning of the month, it’s a perfect time to plan your content for the month. Publishing content for the sake of publishing content is useless – but publishing with a purpose is the key to success and sanity.
Below, are some notes from Saturday’s chat. Do you plan your content every month? Has it helped you? Let’s discuss!
