This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Shake. All opinions are 100% mine.
Looking for new ways to make as an influencer or bring in new work for your side hustle? What if I told you there was a new, free platform that allowed you to sell your creative services to a wider audience? Well, there is, and that platform is Shake!
Shake is a platform that is completely free for Creators, and it opens up another possible avenue for you to be approached with deals, sponsorships, and creative work. Whether you’re an influencer, business coach, graphic designer, or you have a side hustle – You can connect directly with the brands/buyers that want to work with you. And you don’t have to worry about going back and forth in time-consuming negotiations – as there’s no communication that takes place prior to payment.
So what kind of services can you offer for purchase? Everything from sponsored social posts, photography, photo/video editing, videography, audio work like songwriting and voiceovers, virtual appearances, and more. The possibilities are really endless!
The best part of Shake is that you, the Creator, is in full control. You get to choose the specifics of each Shake (aka what you’re offering). Define exactly what you’re offering, how much it costs, how long you will need to deliver it, and the usage rights.
How it Works:
- Create an account at shake.izea.com
- Create Your “Shakes”– these are your creative listings to showcase the services you’re offering. (A little advice: You want to create one Shake for each of your platform or services)
- Buyers will purchase your Shakes, and you can choose to accept or deny any deals (what’s really great about this is it allows for you to take on work when you have availability – or turn down work if you have a little too much on your plate)
- Create the work/deliver the service that has been ordered – and deliver the content through the platform. It’s all in one place, easy to track, and a seamless experience for you and the Buyer.
How I’m Making Revenue from Shake
As an entrepreneur and an influencer – I created two different types of offers (Shakes) on Shake. One to sell my graphic design services for social media post graphics and one to sell my services as an influencer.
If brands want to work with me to create unique content for their brand to be featured on WomensBusinessDaily.com and my personal social media (Instagram, Twitter), they can purchase a Shake from me for those services.
Or if a small business just needs an image for their social media, they can purchase a graphic design package from me and I’ll design them a graphic that can be used on the social network of their choosing.
All in all, it’s a great resource for me to attract new clients and potential brand sponsorships and continue to grow my revenue. I’ve only set up two Shakes thus far, but I plan on adding more as the possibilities here are truly endless!
So what are you waiting for? Sign up here! And let’s get Shaking!Published in
