When I was working back in Tennessee as the Marketing Director for a chain of salons, my job focused around coming up with unique, original and creative promotions to drive sales and make money. Original being the key word here. There are a lot of copy cats in this world, I see them every day in blog land, and they also exist in business. Drawing inspiration and copying are two very different things.
.... aaaaand tangent has commenced....
But anyways, back to money making. If you are creative enough to come up with an idea for your company to make more money, I can pretty much guarantee you will have job security. I'm not as involved in sales in my current position, but in the past I used to have a blast brainstorming new promotions to get clients in the door and take all of their money! I'm a hustler babyyy, I just want you to know....
For example, I recently found out that AT&T now offers what is essentially a lease for a new iPhone. Talk about genius. They no longer are only getting your money every two years, they are getting your money every single month by charging you a premium to basically rent an iPhone from them. You're happy because you have that pretty iPhone 6, they are happy because they have more money from you than ever before. Better get you a sturdy case... (shameless plug)
I'm not hating right now. It is ideas like that that separate the men from the boys, as my dad used to say. You may not be in marketing or advertising professionally, but as a blogger you 100% are. You should always be thinking about new ways to make money from your blog. New sponsor opportunities. New Etsy ventures. Heck, even tiny ideas can make a huge impact, like utilizing the bloglovin like button for giveaways!
This whole ramble thus far is basically to tell you I have a great idea for Facebook. (I know, I know, I know... horrific irrelevant ramble leading up to my point, my bad!)
If you could pay a fee to see private profiles on Facebook (or insta or twitter), would you do it?
I realize this idea breaches every single privacy law every created for social media. But would you? Would you pay to see your ex-boyfriend's new girlfriend's Facebook page? Or what about her Insta profile? Accounts that were previously on lock down, now open for a flat monthly fee to Facebook.
I'll go ahead and start the discussion with no shame... YUP! A whole lotta YUP!
I feel like I've hit the jackpot when people don't realize their Mobile Upload Album is public (surprisingly a lot of people don't catch this), I would be filled with days upon weeks of entertainment if I had access to everything, at anytime.
So, what about you? Would you pay for that privilege if it was say.... $14.99/mo? Leave me a comment, I'm curious!
