Today I want to talk about a topic that I get asked about ALL. THE. TIME.
How do you make extra money on social media without being a blogger?
So many people see bloggers out there raking in the dough, but it’s kinda confusing how it all works. Starting a blog takes a lot of time, but sometimes you just want to be able to earn a little extra cash without going to all that effort.
Well today I want to explain a little more about how you can do this. It’s now possible to earn money from your own social media accounts even if you’re not a blogger!
How to Make Extra Cash on the Side as a Social Media Influencer
Here’s the thing – everyone alive is holds influence.
You have influence over your friends & family & even acquaintances.
Anyone who would ever ask your opinion is influenced by you. We just don’t call it that in everyday life.
Bloggers are simply influencers who do this for a living. But you don’t have to be a blogger to get paid for your level of influence.
The Influencer Network That Lets You Work with Brands
There’s a new influencer network that’s not just for bloggers – it’s for everyone with any social media following.
It’s called Social Publi.
Social Publi is a cool platform – it connects the mom with 350 friends on Facebook, the personal trainer with 1,200 followers on Instagram, or the attorney with 400 followers on Twitter with brands who need help spreading the word about their products and services.
They are looking for EVERYDAY PEOPLE to share their true opinions with people who trust them.
I love this because they allow YOU to get a chance to get paid for your influence. I just love helping people figure out ways to make more money on the side like this!
Make Money from Instagram, YouTube, or Facebook
SocialPubli.com is an influencer marketing platforms that connects companies with real life influencers (i.e. YOU!) to promote content on Instagram, YouTube, and Facebook.
They also look at people who have influence on Twitter, LinkedIn, to share messages on behalf of brands. (FYI – Bloggers CAN participate, but it is not a requirement to join).

What Does It Mean to Be an Influencer?
If you are completely new to this space, you may not quite understand what it means to be an influencer.
In a nutshell, an influencer is someone who has authority to share a recommendation with others with others who are in their network.
In the case of a blogger, this is when a blogger shares a message with their followers as it relates to their blog topic.
In the case of a celebrity, it’s like when Michael Jordan lends his name and credibility to Nike.
It’s when YOU share a message 100% relevant to the people who follow you on a particular social media platform (your followers on Twitter or your subscribers on YouTube, for example).
How to Get Started on Social Publi Today
It literally takes minutes to get going…the entire process took me about 5 minutes from start to finish. 🙂
- You can join via email or with your Facebook account (which is what I did).
- Then just confirm your account via email
- Finally, start connecting your social media accounts (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc)
TIP: Don’t worry about which social media accounts you don’t have – just connect the ones you DO have and check the boxes for the appropriate interests associated with each account.
Once you get set up, you’ll be ready to start earning money by publishing branded content. You can be choosy about which branded tasks you want to complete. And you really get to be creative in the way you share the content.
As someone who regularly does branded promotions on behalf of companies who want to reach my readers, I can tell you than sponsored work is FUN. I think doing something fun while earning extra cash on the side is just about the best thing ever.
SocialPubli has already worked with over 2000 companies, including BMW, Disney, and Avon. You never know who you might be able to work with!
