How Much Are Sponsored Blog Posts From Market Influencers Worth?

A new blog post being writtenExceptional growth in the world of social media influencers has resulted in a lot of questions for many marketers. While such influencers can provide a tempting route to reach untapped, lucrative audiences, the monetary value of their influence can be hard to figure out. How much should you pay influencers for sponsored posts? Or how do you spot a fake influencer? Fortunately, branding agency Hampshire can help with the latter. And to find out how much a partnership with an influencer will cost then a new survey, conducted on UK bloggers by software specialist Vuelio, gives us a glimpse into the expanding world of influencer marketing pricing.

The Survey Headlines

The aforementioned survey was conducted online and was sent to 7,500 bloggers. The number of usable responses returned was 787, and 78% of respondents said that they receive payments for up to 50% of the work on their blogs. Bloggers specialising in fashion & beauty, gardening, nature and parenting sectors were most likely to receive payments for more than 50% of the work on their blogs.

The most important question, however, is how much are those bloggers charging brands? It appears that the majority charge under £250 for sponsored posts or collabs. In the survey, 27% revealed that they request between £1 and £100 for each post, and 30% revealed that they request £101 to £250 for posts. Moving on to collabs, and survey findings showed 23% of bloggers command £1 to £100 while 29% command £101-£250. Of those that responded, just 8% revealed that they charge £0 for blog posts.

In terms of more substantial payments for sponsored posts and paid-for collaborations, the survey revealed that a mixture of niche blogs and highly competitive sector blogs command the highest sums. Of those quizzed, 2% charge more than £1000 per blog post and 4% charge £1000+ for collabs.

Blogs in the following niches were most likely to command the highest payments: travel, weddings, fashion & beauty, politics, media & marketing, business, and combination. Combination, niche blogs are blogs that specialise in mixed fields, such as health, fitness, and beauty, or food and travel.

Finding Genuine Influencers

Everything’s clear so far. However, it’s even harder to determine which market influencers are able to offer your brand the most bang for the buck. To begin with, the influencer market is becoming saturated, making it harder and harder to get your brand messaging read.

Note that a following of several thousand does not necessarily equate to large, influential power. Followers are becoming more clued up on selling strategies. You need to form a believable partnership with an influencer for it to be worthwhile.

You need to remember that it’s easy to buy fake followers and ‘likes’ and say you’re a market influencer even though your genuine reach is minimal – and many people do this.

Avoiding Fake Influencers

Thorough research is obviously your best weapon against fake influencers. Ensure you request detailed audience demographic stats and breakdowns from all prospective influencers. Audience … Read More

Different Ways to Wear Your Little Black Dress

A little black dress or LBD is a staple in a woman’s wardrobe. Apart from the basic and popular A-line black dress, there are various styles and designs to choose from. Plus, you can wear it with other clothing items and accessories to change your look. Here are different ways to wear that little black dress and achieve varying results.

Pair it with an eye-catching coat

One advantage of having a plain and neutral-colored dress is that it can go well with almost everything like a bold and unique coat. Whether you prefer a furry, duffle, pea, wrap, quilted parka or cape coat; it will perfectly match your LBD. It is ideal, especially in cold weather. You can look fabulous while staying warm.

Wear statement accessories

It’s your chance to show off that statement piece of jewelry that you’ve wanted to flaunt. Go for a chunky necklace or a brilliant diamond bracelet as it will catch people’s eyes. You may also pair it with personalized jewelry. A customized piece will attract attention and can also be a conversation starter, which is helpful when attending social events or parties. Your accessory will be the star, so make sure that you choose the perfect piece.  

Try other designs

The first thing that comes to mind when people hear the word LBD is a plain, A-line black dress. It’s the basic and most popular style, so it’s not a surprise. However, it’s also not your only choice as there are many other styles and designs to choose from. 

Go for a fitted black dress if you want to sport your gorgeous physique or get one with lace if you are feeling more romantic. There are also little black dresses with sheers and cut-outs for those who want to show off more skin and are feeling sultry.  Other styles are long-sleeved and sequined black dresses. 

Top it with a leather jacket

A little black dress is generally girly in style. It’s an effortless way to look put-together and stylish. However, you can also make it look edgier by wearing a leather jacket on top of it. Transition your look from formal attire to one that you can rock at a party with this simple trick. 

Go sexy with stiletto or strappy high heels

Speaking of formal attire, the best shoes to wear with your little black dress for formal gatherings are stiletto shoes or strappy high heeled shoes. They will not only add inches to your height, but they will make you look sexier. Nude pumps, on the other hand, can make your legs appear longer. 

Dress it down with sneakers

Your LBD is a versatile piece. From a party or office dress, you can turn it into a casual attire by wearing it with a pair of sneakers. Instead of leather, complete the look with a denim jacket. 

Be creative and more experimental in wearing your little black dress as you can quickly achieve different looks with this handy piece.

Why rental fashion is growing fast

There has been a sea-change in the public perception of ownership over the past few years. Back in the 1980s, it was all about owning your own home, buying the biggest and fastest car, and holidays in the most expensive resorts and hotels. Today, this has all been turned on its head.

A caring, sharing society

There has been a rapid upsurge in home rentals, as the housing market has priced ordinary folk out of the market. With this has come an interest in sharing goods and services, as witnessed by the rapid growth of Uber and Airbnb, for example.

This sharing attitude has now moved on to encompass clothing. This is not the first time that members of the public have been able to rent clothing, of course, but until recently this option was reserved for the super-rich, who had access to catwalk fashion for a limited time at a far-from-limited price!

Affordable rental fashion

The new trend in sharing clothes does not just extend to formal wear and maxi dresses; instead, all types of fashion can be sourced for hire, from designer dresses through to office wear. Even streetwear is getting a look in. According to a report by the BBC, one enterprising young woman in London has opened a pop-up shop specialising in affordable streetwear, which enables ordinary people to ring the changes in their daily attire without the associated high costs.

HURR is the latest clothes sharing website that offers rental clothing. Every item available to hire originally cost more than £150 to purchase. The people behind HURR hope that the project will go some way towards providing an alternative to throwaway fashion, whereby items are bought, worn once or twice, and then consigned to landfill.

As popular as the new trend is proving to be, it is unlikely to spell the end of fashion stores. Cast your eyes over the huge variety of gorgeous – not to mention affordable – dresses such as AX Paris maxi dresses and you will almost certainly find that you want to hang on to them for as long as possible rather than risk someone else wearing your ‘special’ frock.

Expect to see many more clothes sharing opportunities over the coming months, but we don’t think that anyone is ready to give up their entire wardrobes just yet!
