It’s rare to find an influencer who’s riding the wave of popularity yet also realizes that their sources of income (monetization) could dry up long before they ought to. I am about to tell you how it can and has happened, but first some good news.
You are an influencer, so if we act fast, we can set up an income stream that pays you even after you are done creating content!
Never heard of an influencer’s income disappearing? Let me give you two examples.
Look at Dianna Leilani Cowern, who was riding the wave of huge popularity on YouTube and in life, having just married Kyle (her now husband).
If you do not know her name, you might know her as @physicsgirl.
The last video she personally created was uploaded a year and four months ago, on Oct 24, 2022, and received 1.6 million views. It shows her boarding a nuclear submarine in the Arctic, which dove under the ice.
Then, something most people have only heard of happened. She got Long Covid.
Nearly overnight, her career of making fun, quirky physics videos ground to a screeching halt. Since then, only two videos have been made to update her subs about her health. One by a very good friend of hers and another by another influencer who is also her friend.
Has her income been affected by her illness? Duh (though her Patrons at Patreon are still contributing, which is good for her in her current situation).
Now, let’s look at Ray Higdon. He published a blog post on Aug 9, 2014 on his website that describes how he had one YouTube channel shut down and built a new channel, only to have horrific problems with it, causing him to leave YouTube.
I believe he had built up to 20,000 subs (subscribers) when he lost his first channel (in 2011). Here is how he put it across in the post:
“Imagine if you started a site and you wanted to get more interaction on it and for FREE this guy comes along and contributes to your site 5-7 times per week, every single week for 5 years. How much would you be willing to give that guy? Would you at least send him a T-shirt or would you shut down his account and flag his content even though his content is getting likes, shares, comments and a ton of traffic to YOUR site?”
This influencer is not saying that Ray made a good or bad choice to leave YouTube or that YouTube is bad. In fact, I make no judgment whatsoever; I am simply showing you how easily you can lose it all.
There are other stories like Dianna’s and Ray’s, but these two I did not need to do research to recall. If I thought about it for a moment, I would think of others, too.
The point is that this can happen easily and at any moment.
If something happens to you that is outside of your control like your account getting canceled, hacked, or bombarded by complaints, you get a disease, you are in an accident, or you get ‘canceled’ by woke society, your life as an influencer will take a step back or worse.
If you are a parent, how would that affect your kids?
Want the good news?
I am here to tell you that your income can go on. In fact, it can be significantly more right now while you are riding the wave, and all of that is not only possible but probable.
The best part? It costs you nothing.
In other words, no risk and a high probability of success (higher than becoming a popular influencer)!
