One of the most popular questions asked online: How much money Instagram models make?

After much research and interviews with models that I managed to talk with, here are some figures to give you an idea how much money do these models make.

Keep in mind, the amount money each model makes varies depending on popularity, demographics etc. So, I’d recommend to take these figures more like guidelines so you can have some idea about the subject; and not rule of thumb.

Less than 10,000 followers

“Micro” influencers are considered to be from 6,000 to 10,000 followers. Based on a recent survey, these accounts could possibly make up to, an average, $88.00 per post.

Less than 100,000 followers

Influencers with 50,000 to 80,000 followers can potentially get around $200.00 per post, but the price point changes based on the advertiser(s).

An interview with Vox revealed that, ViralNation, an influencer agency (Pewdiepie one of their influencers), told the news outlet that micro influencers who have around 10,000-50,000 followers can make up to thousands of dollars now.

Less than 500,000 followers

Accounts of this stature (around 250,000-500,000 followers) have nailed that ‘game’ of Instagram influencing, with potential earnings averaging at $670.00 per post.

1 million or more followers

Influencers with up to 1 million followers can get $10,000 per post.

Influencers at this level get paid handsomely – they’re getting into region where they can charge $100,000. Some of the more popular ones can even get $250,000 for a post!

These are especially true if the content is on Youtube and the influencer is in the gaming industry.

15 money-making strategies That Will Boost Your Productivity

You feel you have the right idea. You know your company can make the difference in the market. Somewhow, you just can’t make that journey to success. You lack the productivity due to little to no motivation.

In today’s article, I’m sharing with you the 15 ways that can help to boost you productivity level.

1. Wake up Early (Hear Me Out)

This is the ‘early bird gets the worm’ saying. Many successful people swear by it. My personal favorite would be Mark Wahlberg’s schedule. He wakes up around 2 to 3am and start his day with workouts, and work afterwards. In a nutshell, he gets a lot of things done as people just about to get off bed.

There are numerous studies that point out how your work rate improves tremendously since your brain is fresh in the morning able to perform tasks at optimal level – making it the most ideal time to get many important things done early on.

However, I do also know successful people who get up later. If you’re a night owl, then trying to wake up early means you’re going against your body’s natural rhythm. Some even shared that night time is perfect as most inspiration comes around the hour. No one can argue if it’s the truth. Do whatever that works best for you.

However, I don’t recommend this since it causes a lot of setbacks to your body as multiple clinical researches have found that lack of ‘night’ sleep could potentially lead to a number of chronic diseases.

2. Stay away from distractions when you first wake-up.

You open your eyes first thing in the morning and instinctively grab your phone. This is a mistake according to brain performance expert Jim Kwik, you shouldn’t look at your phone for the first hour of the day.

The main reason is that your brain is highly suggestible during this time. As a result, this trains our minds to become distracted because of the release of dopamine we get from our electronic devices. Your productivity also takes a hit for the rest of the day because we want to keep experiencing those good feelings. So, instead of getting to work, we stay glued to our phones.

3. Eat breakfast.

No surprise here. You need fuel to give you the energy to power through the day. Of course, you shouldn’t devour a doughnut and wash it down with a sugary drink.

Think healthier options that involve high protein like eggs or protein shakes. Add in berries, raisins, avocados into green smoothies too and not to forget a boring cup of coffee.

On top of the energy you’ll receive, these types of foods are good for your brain by improving your concentration and memory.

If breakfast is not your thing, like Elon Musk, be sure to take a heavy brunch or lunch like he does when you get the chance to help fuel you to work for the rest of the day.

4. Exercise

If you exercise when you first wake-up, even before eating breakfast, you can overcome your grogginess. This will make it so much easier to start your day early rather than taking things slowly – which is a big ‘no’.

Remember, physical activity doesn’t just improve your overall health. Any manner of exercise will help you de-stress and clear your head.

5. Meditation and stillness.

As I’ve gotten older, I’ve struggled with anxiety. If you’ve ever dealt with this, then you know it can sometimes be almost impossible to be present. It can also make falling asleep a chore or start your day with dread.

Meditating hasn’t wholly erased my anxiety. But it has made an enormous difference. It has helped calm me down and return my focus to what’s going on right now. Best of all? You can meditate whenever and wherever you like, whether if that’s right before bed, first thing when you wake, or when taking a break at work.

Practice meditating with good breathing techniques – it helps.

6. Make your bed.

I think my mom would love this entry, even though I don’t believe that I was a messy kid growing up. Anyway, making your bed is a great way to begin your day productively.

Frankly, I wasn’t really an achiever in making my bed. It was until I found I have sensitive skin that forced me to make it a habit. Turns out, bacteria are accummulated in bed if not care for it. I started making bed after knowing this and went the extra mile to spray the bed sheet and pillows with special antiseptic to kill bacteria that irritated my skin.

The importance of making bed is crucial as it sets your mindset to a winning mentality. During his 2014 commencement speech at the University of Texas, US Admiral William H. McRaven said:

“If you make your bed every morning, you will have accomplished the first task of the day. It will give you a small sense of pride, and it will encourage you to do another task, and another, and another. And by the end of the day, that one task completed will have turned into many tasks completed.”

7. Recite affirmations.

Initially, I was someone can be seen as reserved. I don’t talk much back then. I just had own priorities to work on. This was something I knew had to work on since building a great business requires you to network with people.

This was where I found out about affirmations. Simple affirmations like “Today will be the best day” can make all the difference in the world. They help you focus on what you want to achieve. These affirmations release ‘positive thought’ neurons’ that can help you build you winning mindset.

8. Read.

Except for taking care of your health, reading is the best thing you can do for yourself. It helps you develop new ideas and perspectives. It helps reduce stress, expands your knowledge, and improves brain function such as memory, focus, and concentration.

If you’ve done enough research about Warren Buffett, or the late Steve Jobs, you’d know how much these people love to read. Truth is, no matter how smart or successful you are, you should never stop learning.

When I started running my businesses, reading got me to stay up to date with latest development in my industry. The business I was in changes frequently, so there was a lot of adapting to do from time to time. This is where reading helped me to remain competitive.

9. Schedule your time.

Mark Cuban once said how he’s not bothered much by ROI (Return On Investment) but more concerned about his ROT (Return On Time). This is an indication of how important time is. It is obvious that unlike, money, you can’t make back the time invested – unless it’s worth the effort. This is why scheduling your time is essential.

If you don’t schedule your time, then you’re going to wander aimlessly and having no direction is the last thing you want whilst running your business. Sure. You know that certain things need to get done. But, which ones are your priorities?

When exactly are you going to cross them off your to-do-list? Are there deadlines that you must adhere to? Creating a schedule helps you answer these questions and plan accordingly.

10. Pare down your decisions.

We all have a limited amount of brainpower. If you spend too much energy making low-level decisions, then you’ll experience decision fatigue. You won’t be as productive when you’re mentally drained.

Look at Mark Zuckerberg, Jack Ma, Bill Gates and so many successful people – what do they have in common other than great work ethics? They don’t get bogged down with looking rich. As long as they have proper attire on, they are good to go. Their priorities are ‘parked’ elsewhere.

I suggest that every night, you layout your wardrobe and prep your meals for tomorrow. Or, you could do this for the entire week on a Sunday. The idea here is to reserve your energy and willpower for what truly matters.

11. Put pen to paper.

There’s a routine called Morning Pages practiced by people ranging from journalist Oliver Burkeman and entrepreneur Tim Ferriss.

The idea is that when you first wake, write 750 words to clear your head. For me, this is the time I’d normally write down (or go through) my to-do list for the day. It will keep me focused on getting those tasks done for the day.

And science has also found that handwriting can spark creativity and help us learn.

12. Focus on yourself.

With so much going on in your life, it’s easy to neglect your own self-care and priorities. Over time, you’ll get burned out. No matter how amazing of a person you are, everyone needs time to rest, play, and learn. If you don’t put yourself in your schedule, then it will get filled with other time requests.

13. Practice gratitude.

It’s been found that those who spend five minutes writing down what they’re grateful for have increased their sense of well-being by 10 percent.

And, as you know, when you’re a better mood, you’re more productive.

You can also pray – thanking everything you have and have accomplished if you’re the religious type.

14. Socialize with your teammates.

Socializing with people have been found to have positive effects to your general happiness, and healthier lifestyle.

This certainly does not mean you should be socializing with people all the time – that’s time wasting.

Instead, schedule your time to allow yourself to kick back, relax and meet people to socialize.

Try working in a coworking space or catching up with a friend or colleague for lunch. And, worst-case scenario, schedule a conference call with your team.

15. Set hard time limits on certain activities.

This idea is similar to ‘Shooting for the moon. If you missed it, you’ll at least land on one of the stars.’ If you need a grade B, work like you’re an A student. If you need $1 million, work like you’re worth $10 million.

This may sound overwhelmingly difficult at first. However, by constantly setting up tough tasks – your mind and body will get attuned to such conditions. At the end of it, what you thought was impossible, was actually do-able.

Conclusion

If you’ve experienced long enough time as an entrepreneur, you’ve learned that there is no one cure for every disease.

In this case, some methods work perfectly for you while others don’t. Every entrepreneur and his or her business is different. So you need to mix and match what works best for you.

Why The Future of making money For Content Creators is great

Advertisements

I’m not talking about Patreon, Onlyfans, SuscribeStar and so on.

I’m talking about the future of online ads for video content creators.

Imagine if Youtube have competitors, there will be higher profit from advertisements for creators than today.

For now, you can see other companies such as Vimeo replicating the idea but with little success – for now.

How about BitChute?

There are numerous creators who have already added their content on the platform and even received partnership offers.

Even an article by Bloomberg have found that large numbers of creators are also moving  and/or diversifying towards Ethereum-based platform such as Viewly due to its interesting potential and consistent policies unlike Youtube.

The reason a number of sites are popping up lately (time I write this) is due to constant changes of Youtube policies lately.

That and the fact Youtube seems to be inconsistent when it comes to enforcing their rules and regulations are starting to drive a number of creators looking for another platform to share their content.

And when barriers of entry loosen up, competition will start pouring in soon.

I’m not saying Youtube will lose.

What I’m saying is – this could potentially lead to more platforms competing.

Most of the benefits from that competition will go to content creators such as Youtubers; and it’s competitors will start offering better support and higher ad revenue in order to remain relevant.

Advertisements

This is why I believe the future of content creators, particularly video creators, is going to be more optimistic as more opportunities and potentially better ad revenue will be available soon.

Consequently, this is an opportunity for entrepreneurs (especially solo-preneurs) to create another stream of income by adding valuable video content on these platforms.

So, time to pick up another skill, future millionaires!

Secrets To Financial Freedom

Advertisements

You work very hard. Day in. Day out.

Yet, you could not yield the results you want – which is to achieve financial freedom.

Today, I’m gonna share with you the secrets to financial freedom.

Create Your Networth Target

Creating a budget never really makes sense to me in the first place.

I went through many online material that talks about budgeting & yet, they continue talking about cutting spending & never really got to the core of budgeting.

Whilst it is a no-brainer to cut down spending, I was clueless as to how much is considered a good budget.

I was directionless.

Then I discovered how important net-worth is and how helpful it is when it comes to creating a budget.

Basically, you need to come up with a targeted net-worth & how long you’d think it requires to reach that target.

Once you have a target, all you need now is to reverse engineer that figure into tangible numbers using simple math – giving you an idea how much you need to save every month and so on.

In a nutshell, let’s say you’re aiming to reach a networth of $100,000 in 3 years. This means you need to make $2777.77 every month.

This is where you decide where to cut your expenses or how much money are you short from achieving the figure. It all comes down to simple math.

Apply The 50/30/20 Rule In Budget

I’ve also talked about this rule.

For those who are not familiar, the 50/30/20 rule was introduced as guidelines to how much you should spend based on needs, wants & savings

Although this is a good place to start, I believe there should be some tweaks depending on where you are today.

In short, I believe the rule should be re-introduced as 40/10/50 – where savings should be the priority, so you can add more money into investment later on.

If you want to know more about it, check out my other article where I discussed this in details.

Seek Wise Men/Women For Advise On Investment

This is the toughest topic to talk to you about.

Honestly speaking, there is no such thing as an investment that fits all.

Different investment has different settings, different mentality and so on – which can be challenging if you’re not used to the environment.

My experience tells me that the best person to talk to about investment are those whom you have personal relationship with – who have gone through the experience from becoming poor to wealthy.

Gaining their insight is valuable as it gives you first hand lessons, mistakes & failures that you can avoid in the future which is priceless.

Then, once you’re certain – you can go all in.

Improve Tax Awareness

You have no idea how much money you can save by starting to listen to your accountant.

Credited accountants are able to tell you exactly how and where to spend in order to get the best tax reliefs, or tax reductions.

Getting tax reliefs is always great – so maximize its uses.

If you run a company, it’s even better. You can gain more tax reliefs under company spending.

So go talk to a credited accountant now before that next tax declaration dateline.

My Final Two Cent

If you’re clueless as to where to begin, then, seek advice from wise men or women. Take note every single thing they share with you – even if you disagree with some of the ideas.

Always keep in mind, the best entrepreneur are the ones who are open-minded and do not have answer to every question.

Why Making Money Is Actually Boring? The Truth

I know what you are thinking. Who in their mind get bored when making money?

These days, I’m seeing a lot of people aspiring to become rich but not willing to hear what they should hear.

At the end, these people ended up listening to many of these so-called business gurus offering online classes worth thousands dollars ended up disappointed.

The reality is you need to do what every successful people in the entire of mankind’s history has been doing, which is to SAVE MONEY!

By now, I’m sure many of you clicked to not read this article further – not wanting to face reality.

Honestly, saving money is the key to becoming and remain wealthy.

No matter how much you make, if you still fail to save money, you’ll eventually become not wealthy.

Don’t believe it?

Just look at the number of business people, celebrities and athletes who made millions of dollars in their prime; yet despite all of the money, they still ended up in bankruptcy.

SO HOW TO SAVE?

“Not Wasting Money Is The Best Way to Save Money.” – Mokokoma Mokhonoana

Saving money alone is not efficient if you want to become wealthy. You need to devise a plan. A budget plan. This allows you to have clearer picture of where your money should be spent and where not to.

Budget plan does not help you solving your financial problems, it helps you see the problems!

Below is a simple process to create a budget:

  • Create Your Networth Target – Create where you’d like your total networth be within a dateline. E.g. You aim a total of $500,000 within next 5 years. This means you need to make $8333 each month. This is where you start creating a budget.
  • Budget – With a target, creating budget becomes easier. This is where you need to look at your personal finances. Start looking at expenses and cut whatever is necessary. Try to be as lean as possible in your spending. Then, look at your income and determine how much more you need to make money in order to make that $8333 per month. When you’re able to see where you are today in the aspect of wealth and how far are you away from reaching that target, your money awareness is heightened. This is the ‘awareness’ that every individual needs to help them save money.

Obviously, there’s more to it in devising a financial budget – but it would be a very long article to write about, something which I look forward to writing in the future.

Remember! Budget plan does not help you solving your financial problems, it helps you see the problems!

That’s it for today. Let me know in comment section of what you think about the article.
