Izea Shake: Make Money as an Influencer or Content Creator

How to Make Money as an Influencer or Content Creator with Izea Shake

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of IZEA for IZEA V2. All opinions are 100% mine.

Are you wondering how to make money as an influencer or content creator? I am so excited to tell you all about Izea’s new Shake platform and how it is easily the easiest and most inclusive way for influencers and content creators to make money in 2020.

In the seven years I have been blogging and creating digital content, things have continued to change and improve for those of us who make a living creating. Shake lets you sell your services in a virtual marketplace all while setting your prices, your terms, and your timelines.

Does It Cost Money to Join Shake?

Shake is completely free for creators to join. The application process is simple and you will sit back and wait for potential clients to reach out for brand deals and sponsorships.

Do I Have to Reach Out to Brands on Shake?

Simply said, no. As a content creator, you will set up individual Shakes on your dashboard. You will set your terms, prices, and any important details and you will only be contacted when someone wants to purchase what you are offering. No back and forth is involved prior to them purchasing from you.

What Kind of Shakes Can I Offer?

Whether you are a college student, mom blogger, photographer extraordinaire or anything in between, you can get paid through Shake.

Just under the Influencer Marketing heading you can sell for Instagram, Instagram Reels, Youtube, Tik-Tok, Twitter, Snap, Twitch, Reddit, WhatsApp, LinkedIn, Blogs, Podcasts, Pinterest, Product Reviews and even Meme Development. Other headings include virtual appearances, video, photography, design, audio and writing. The possibilities are so vast and your skillset can really be magnified with each Shake you create.

Do I Control Who I Work With on Shake?

Yes! You get the final say on whether you accept a job or not. You even control the price, delivery timeline, usage rights and what the deal entails. If it’s not a good fit for your brand there is no pressure to move forward with the deal.

How Do I Join Shake?

It’s so simple to set up your Shakes but first you have to create an account a shake.izea.com

Next, you’ll want to make a different Shake for each social media account or service you offer so that you really optimize your potential earnings.

Wait for buyers to purchase your Shakes and remember that you can accept or deny any deals based on your preferences.

Then you get to really shine and create and deliver the content you are so great at making all within the Shake platform.

Plus getting paid is quick and easy after the work has been completed.

Highlights of Shake

Shake is putting you in control of your business in a way that takes out the hassles on your end and lets you do what you’re good at, creating.

If you are a creator that is really skilled but still relatively unknown you can really highlight your skills and show off your best work to a whole new market. Take the time to really show your best and most creative work as samples and let yourself shine.

I also love that I can see what other content creators are charging. That way I can easily see if I am underselling myself and adjust my prices accordingly.

Forget the back and forth on trying to find common ground or being scared to name your price, that’s all out in the open with Izea’s Shake platform. If the client doesn’t have the budget your time is not wasted and expectations are out in the open from your end. You set the rules. You are the boss. Except you have the Izea Shake team helping you reach your goals.

So If you are wondering how to make money as an influencer or content creator in 2020, Shake is it. Sign up for Shake today.
