Earn money from sharing the things you love…it seems so simple, and it really is!
As a stay at home mom/work at home mom, I am always searching for new ways to earn a side income while remaining home with my girls. Whether it is in the form of monetizing my blog or finding other work from home income sources, I actively research and review the best options out there that really any mom can use to earn a little or ALOT of extra money!
One of my favorite programs to earn extra income for our household is Heartbeat.
Heartbeat is a website dedicated towards connecting brands, products, and companies with influencers and brand ambassadors.
How to Get Started…
When you sign up to be a brand ambassador with Heartbeat they will ask you a series of questions to find out your interest, and what you mostly like to post on Instagram…This way Heartbeat can connect you with the brands they think you will love.
Make sure you sign up connecting your instagram account, enter your contact preferences, update your payment preferences with Paypal info, and then simply head to campaign preferences to answer a few survey to get you on your way to receiving your first campaign!
How Much Will You Make?
How much you make will vary depending on the level of followers you have. You are paid a set rate for every completed campaign, and although this rate is calculated off your following Heartbeat does take other things into consideration. What I like about Heartbeat is that they truly want honest engagement from your followers, and even if your follower count isn’t very high right now it doesn’t mean you won’t get approved as an ambassador or receive campaigns.
(The other great thing is they will also work with accounts who prefer to stay in private mode versus going public)
As you can see below from my PayPal account I have received various payments from Heartbeat over the past few months…the frequency that you will receive campaigns will vary and they will not always be paid campaigns
For the campaigns that are not paid this generally means you are receiving free product in exchange, and more often than not the products I have received have been well worth the time and energy I spent in creating the posts.
See below a few examples of the brands I have gotten to work with…
How Often Will You Receive Campaigns?
As I mentioned previously, how often you receive campaigns will vary from month to month…this is because Heartbeat works hard to ensure they are matching ambassadors that will best fit with each company and product. Sometimes this means you may go a while between receiving any campaign offers, but do not worry! Things like working to increase your following and having great engagement are all things that will help ensure you receive campaigns in the future.
Do You Have To Accept Every Campaign?
No. You do not have to accept every campaign that is offered. There have been a few campaigns that I have not accepted simply because they haven’t fit my niche nor would they have appealed to my followers. Don’t worry about turning down campaigns this will not affect your chances of receiving campaigns in the future. Heartbeat wants your post to be authentic, and while they try to send campaigns they feel will be great fit they understand when you decide they are not.
Oh and by the way Heartbeat isn’t just for mamas, and women…Men can also sign up to be brand ambassadors as well.
So get to snapping more photos and earn that MONEY
