Photo by Estee de Villiers

I held off on paid collaborations for so long because I believed a) I didn’t have enough followers and b) I didn’t have enough to offer.

If that’s you, you might be missing out on an opportunity to not only earn extra income, but introduce people to brands that they might love and will add value to their lives!

My content creator journey began when I created my profile on #paid.

In just one month, I landed my first paid Collab ever for $500!

ask for what you're worth

Ask for what you’re worth. Don’t sell yourself short. If you’re a good photographer, or a good writer, you can charge more for your services.

As a content creator, you’re taking the place of the model, stylist, makeup artist, photographer, and copy writer all in one! This is not to mention the cost of getting an ad seen on radio or TV.

Through the Lyns has great guides on how much to charge and how to get started.

have you done a paid collab before? is it something you want to do?
