Does your beauty business involve social media followers? If so, there are several options for beauty influencers to make money. 


Koji is a software tool that you can download and use to make money by selling digital products — your photos; personalized videos, etc. — on sites like Instagram and Facebook. The site takes a 15% commission from your payment on most products, but has a sliding scale for charity videos and some other items, such as tickets to live events. Learn more about Koji here.


If you love to take photographs of yourself, your food, your clothes and tell all of your avid followers about everything that you like and hate, you’re going to love Heartbeat, a.k.a. Heartbeat for Ambassadors. This smart phone application pays you to tout products for major brands by being yourself. Pay varies by the number of followers you have and their level of engagement. Learn more about Heartbeat here.

Open Influence

Open Influence also connects influencers with major brands. However, the site expects influencers to have a larger following than Heartbeat. Generally speaking, you’ll need at least 10,000 followers on some social media site to draw a campaign. But if you do get a campaign, they can pay generously — from a few hundred dollars per post to $50,000. Learn more about Open Influence.
