Social Media amplifies companies’ brands giving them a channel for the distribution of their promotional content. And better than that they can use you to help them reach even further.
Companies pay to promote their products or services through your own social media accounts. This is why it is important to grow your social media presence. The larger your following, the more impact and therefore more money you can make. This is now becoming a more prevalent source of income for bloggers.

In recent times Sponsoring, Social Post has been redefining word-of-mouth marketing and what it can do for companies. This type of marketing is a combination of Native, Content and Influencer Marketing and is on the rise.
We have, by being so socially forward through multiple apps, created a way for companies to:
1) not only connect with their target audiences but also
2) for consumers and influencers to form a business relationship where compensation is provided from creating and sharing brand-sponsored content with our own online followings.
Social media was at one time considered a low-cost way to engage with potential customers. But as Social Media quickly grew as an advertising channel, so did the costs of social marketing.
