“If you want to earn money from your Instagram activities, you need to take a less formal path. You need to connect with brands – or wait for them to contact you.” -Influencer Marketing Hub
Social Media is used by everyone whether it’s Instagram, Facebook, Tiktok, or Youtube. Small businesses have started to heavily market through these Social Media Platforms in order to attract their target customers. Businesses create partnerships with growing social media creators in order to market their products. Connecting these businesses with the right creators in an efficient, professional manner must be simplified.
As someone with growing golf-centered social media accounts it was soon brought to my attention how difficult and time consuming it was to connect with small golf companies. And after talking to many other creators it became clear that the issue spanned across all different types of social media accounts.
A platform to simplify the connection between the business and creator
SM&B Connect is a modern application that attracts both the Social Media Creator and Business into creating a professional connection. SM&B acts as a search engine for companies looking to connect with growing Social Media Creators. Social Media Creators are able to create profiles that outline their accounts and businesses are able to browse through the app to locate the social media pages that fit their criteria.
SM&B Connect creates an opportunity for Social Media Creators to open a profile through the platform. The profile outlines their social media account including amount of followers, content genre (fashion, sports, food), posting frequency, and other important details necessary to give businesses a clear idea of what the account entails. The profile also provides easy links to the social media accounts so businesses can look closer into who you and your account are. SM&B then becomes a simple Direct Messaging App in order to quickly connect the creator to the business.
SM&B Connect on the business side acts like a simple search engine for companies. Companies are able to enter in criteria for the type of Social Media accounts they are targeting. This criterion includes the number of followers, the genre of account, and the target audience. The application easily sorts through the profiles entered in by Social Media Users and displays which accounts are the best fit for the business. Businesses are then able to directly reach out through the application to the Social Media Creator for a professional, efficient connection.
In order to monetize this application, a subscription fee would be assessed to both the Business and Social Media User.
