5 Ambassador Programs to Join as an IG Influencer

Ever wonder what it’s like to be an Ambassador for a brand? You see a lot of your favorite celebrities and public figures promote all of these great products, but did you know that you ( yes, you! ) can be an Ambassador as well? and the best part is you don’t have to have such a huge following to do so.

There are some awesome start-up companies out there constantly looking for ambassadors or influencers to represent their products all over social media. Some will even send a free gift for joining their team. And to clarify on the free part, they are mainly sending you a code to redeem for a free product and these products will usually run about $60 or more and all you have to do is pay for shipping. Not a bad deal, am I right?

I have been avidly working as a Brand Ambassador for a few years now and I absolutely love the work and jobs that I have been blessed to have gotten just so I can pursue my dream job.

Some brands that I am an ambassador for right now are…

Sand Cloud
Sunny Co Clothing
FabfitFun
Lively
Creations for a Cause
… and currently applying for more

Depending on what you niche is, you can find a few that are a great fit for you. Some companies may be looking for a specific type of Influencer to represent their brands so don’t discouraged if you don’t get accepted right away or not at all.

There are plenty of brands out there that are actively looking for ambassadors and sometimes they end up finding you first. There are some brands that will pay you but not all of them. Usually, you will need to make a small investment (usually through really good discounts) and sometimes you will get a commission usually just depending on how good of a good promoter you are and how big your following is.

Now, let’s learn a bit more about some of the great brands listed above…

Influencer

SAND CLOUD

Sand Cloud has been around for a little while now and they sell beautiful towels, cute branded shirts, leggings, and some other adorable accessories. The only disadvantage is that products often sell out quickly so it’s best to sign up and check your email to daily to stay in the loop with their newest product launches and restocked items.

Sign up is pretty quick and easy and most of the time applicants hear back pretty quickly and just also be sure to check your spam.

One cool aspect is that you get awarded points for every purchase and share to social media and as they add up you can redeem those points for bigger discounts in their store. Yes, I would advise to at least buy a shirt and another small product and save up enough points to get a towel.

It’s always helpful to share on Social Media in any creative way you can to show off your products and use all the relevant hashtags. They like to feature the most creative people out their on their IG accounts and that’s always great exposure for you and them as you are trying to grow your account and get more points from those who purchase using your link.

Did I mention the great deed Sand Cloud is doing for the environment?

For every purchase, they donate 10% of all proceeds to help save Marine Wildlife. So there’s that if you are passionate about #SavingTheFishes

SUNNY CO CLOTHING

If you are looking to get some free product upon signing up. Sunny Co Clothing offers its ambassadors the choice of a free swimsuit or free hat. All you have to pay is shipping. They are a great company that for the most part delivers what they promise and just recently had a pretty rad campaign where they gave out several free suits to those shared an image on IG and of-course the ambassadors received a sweet incentive from this campaign for sharing the love. They pretty much have a style for every body type and have some really adorably sexy one pieces for some of us with the mommy bulge. They are incredibly accommodating and if you are creative with your posts then yes ofcourse you can get featured on their feed as well.

FABFITFUN

Surely, you have already heard of this awesome Company.  Every quarter they release a seasonal subscription box full of full-sized beauty,fitness and wellness products to those subscribe. It’s a great investment for the amount of product you are receiving and yes you can cancel at anytime. But trust me you will not want to. As an ambassador or Influencer you do get offered some sweet discounts as well as commission from any sales that are generated through your shared link/posts using your unique code.

LIVELY

I honestly just joined this program and am excited to try it out myself. Lively is an official lingerie brand that offer unique and comfortable styles to all shapes and sizes and recently just launched a new no-wire strapless bra that I feel will definitely sell out fast. Their program too offers unique discounts to ambassadors as well as opportunities to be featured on their Instagram and website. I am very excited to try out their products and post about them on Social Media.

CREATIONS FOR A CAUSE

I have to admit I have not been actively promoting this brand as much as I would like or should but it’s still a lovely opportunity to be apart of such a beautiful growing company that is focused on giving back to the most under-privileged and underdeveloped communities throughout our world today. This is definitely for those who want to reach out help those around us in more unfortunate situations. They offer a lot of the same styled products as Sand Cloud does like their water bottles and jewelry and the perks of becoming an ambassador are about the same but still they are a great company to help promote.

As you can see these all can be a lot to promote at once and some do require a purchase here and there but if you believe in what they are promoting your audience will sure do so as well.

Oh, I almost forgot to include that almost every company has their own Facebook groups you can join to network and communicate with the creators and other ambassadors. You will find out about the newest products and exchange ideas amongst each other and may even arrange meet-ups to help with community outreach projects.

Well, there you have it. If you have any cool other ambassador programs that you would like to promote please be sure to leave your referral link in the comments below and share. I would love to know about any other programs out there. I am sure there has to be more!

How I make money shortening links Using Wordlink

Disclaimer:: This post contains affiliate links. By you clicking on them, I may or many not be compensated by the service I am helping to promote in this post. Thank you

If you are like me trying to passively earn money blogging through various ad revenue sources, you probably can understand how difficult this can be at times.

I have been blogging since 2016, my first failed but not from a lack of trying. Pouring myself into articles about how to turn my hobby into my dream job gave me enough motivation to seek out more avenues. I know there are several ways I can try and I won’t be rich tomorrow. However, Every minute that passes by is a potential $ to be made. After all, time is money and I don’t like to waste either.

WordLinx - Get Paid To Click

One avenue I came across is Wordlink. It’s a link shortening service that pays you to share your favorite links with a shorter url that can be shared into various platforms like Twitter or Instagram, where you may be only allowed a certain amount of characters to post or put into your bio. The only catch is the 5 second window from adfly that you have to sit through before viewing the real page you want to view. It’s just 5 seconds and with every link that’s shortened and shared, you earn money from each view. It’s just that simple.

Unfortunately, sites like facebook or youtube have since banned people from sharing these links to their platforms. But there are some very clever people who have founds ways around these little hiccups.

The only way I can show you how it works is by you clicking here

5 second ad and back to my lovely site 🙂

That’s all there really is to that!

Now you can earn money blogging through this service using the banner above.

NOTE: No, you will definitely not be rich tomorrow or the next day, but hopefully while you build your followers and page views that will soon change.

Hopefully, you have found this article helpful and informative. Please feel free to share and comment below.

7 Ways to improve your Quality of Life

Have you been feeling stressed out and depressed?

Do you feel like any drive or motivation you once had has just depleted or disappeared?

If not right now. Great! Keep doing what you are doing and enjoy your life today and everyday.

If yes.

No worries. I got you. It happens to most or all of us at some point and most of us can easily fix it by making some very important lifestyle changes.

If you are suffering from any of the anxiety and depression disorders, I would highly recommend to go visit your doctor asap and have your self correctly diagnosed so that they can help you learn how to cope and control it. Much love to all of you out there that are silently suffering.

The beauty of being a human is to that we get to experience life and have all types of emotions as we all live through it. However, there are some situations and circumstances that can have both a positive and negative impact and we all should strive to feel all the positive emotions as much as possible.

What I am want to recommend to you now are ways to help improve your quality of life today and for you to keep working on them tomorrow. Some are pretty simple, and there might just be that one to fix it all for you.

Are you ready?

Well okay then. Lets get started.

1.  Unplug from Social Media

Tell me I’m not the only one to notice just how mean and angry people are on Social Media these days. I can be so easily connected to all platforms and I find it difficult to unplug for more than a day since I rely so heavily on these sites for job opportunities. However, having to see so many controversial posts every five minutes where people are arguing and name-calling each other can be quite depressing. I never want to even respond to these posts now and just share memes…you can’t really go wrong with memes.

Well, actually some people seem to get annoyed by the ones I share and end up unfriending me. But usually I have never met some of these people so yeah..no huge loss there. Just one less depressing post I have to see pop up on my news feed.

But for real, taking time to unplug for another less stress activity can be rewarding and allow you experience life away from your..even if its just for an hour starting out. Eventually, you will feel less compelled to check up on it as much and focus on more important activities…like spending time with family. ( I’m working on this one)

2. Work on a good Food/Fitness plan

It’s no secret that there are certain foods and beverages that can contribute to a much happier and healthier lifestyle. We all also want the energy to workout at least a few times a week but without the proper nutrition, the motivation for even that drive to the gym can be erased by one wrong food item.

It’s definitely not a simple task to just change overnight. It takes a lot of discipline and motivational support to change this one. I work a lot out of town and as much as I would like to save money and make my own meals to carry for lunch, I don’t always have the time nor patience. So when I hit Taco Bell after a shift, yes it may be convenient but I end up regretting it later.

I for one have an auto-immune disorder called Hypothyroidism. I’ll admit growing up I just took my medication and didn’t care to even study much about it. After-all, I felt as normal and happy as any kid should. But after becoming an adult and seeing how things like my mood and stress levels were always rocky, I saw how my eating habits contributed to those things as well.

3. Detox negativity from your life

No matter how we all try to do good and live right, there is negativity which often stems from those around us who might be a huge influence in our lives. It’s OK to cut off ties with those people. If you have a toxic friendship or relationship with someone, don’t keep lying to yourself thinking if this or that changes then it will get better. Nope, it won’t.

Just cut the cord now! It hurts when it’s a loved one or close friend but often they will not change their ways until they want to, and honestly there are some who just enjoy being miserable therefore inflicting their misery onto you. It’s not healthy and the only way to get rid of it is cut that person off. This also applies to the Social Media drama.

4. Take time for yourself

We all need this in one form or another. Whether it’s a weekend getaway with a few friends, or a mommies night out. It’s just needed. It never solves the problems, but sometimes that getaway gives you the peace and quiet you need to distress and think about making some tough and important decisions. It’s not healthy to be locked inside the house all day with screaming kids and a nagging partner. Even if it’s to take a drive in the middle of the night, an afternoon Yoga session, always give yourself that time to rejuvenate and ready to tackle the next day.

5. Ease your Financial Burdens

We all like to make our money, but sometimes no matter how hard or how much we work. The finances just keep on piling up on us.

It’s no fun to live paycheck to paycheck but there are ways to make and save more money. There are several investment options out there to look into to help ease their financial stress. Some are safe and some can be very profitable. It’s very important to know which options are the best for us and start making the investments now. We just never know when life will throw us that hardball, so you have to be ready to catch it before it gets thrown.

6. Hate your Job?! Find or Your make your next Career

It’s a lovely idea and can done if the right timely decisions are made. I worked a few part-time and full-time jobs before making the ultimate decision to chase my dream career. It wasn’t all thought out properly but I have a family and a stable financial situation that worked out for me.

I know just how bad one can feel to just live a life just to pay the bills. This can be a dream to some who have come from financial hardships and want to live simple. There is nothing wrong with that. I came from a family that struggled with financial hardships and I knew what it was like to not be able to afford luxury items.

But I also always had this burning passion deep inside me to pursue more than just that life. Reality does set in and we all have to be adults and work but we ALL also deserve the right to pursue our dreams and live the lives we were born to live.

Always make sure to have something lined up for you if you are just simply seeking employment with another company. And also give proper notice so you can have your previous employer put in good word for you. Don’t let that time you spent there be a waste.

If you are looking to be your own boss. Now is the time to take a risk and join in on the entrepreneur express. All aboard!

Providing that you can do this change. Be sure to set some realistic goals and join in on networking groups that can offer great support and guidance for you to build your empire. The sky really is the limit these days and no-one wants to live a life working a job they hate that can have negative impact on your life.

So just go for it!

7. Travel

If you can do it now. Just go! If all you want to do is take a spur of the moment road trip. Just do it. How amazing it is to drive through places you have never been to with people whose company you can enjoy. All of the memories to be made and the souvenirs to collect along the way. I have several vacation ideas pinned to my boards on Pinterest. Some of which I have already visited and would like to return and others I am going to make sure to go to before I kick that ugly old bucket.

This world isn’t just meant for us to set roots in one place. It’s meant to be explored and traveled upon.
