Podcast Episode 70: How To Make Your Dog an Instagram Influencer

I get questions from people all the time on Instagram (and in real life) asking me what it’s like to be an influencer. Although it feels strange to describe myself with that term, the fact is that I’m influencing people with my online presence. I hope I’m influencing them to be happy, dog loving people! But I’m also suggesting places to go and products to buy that I believe in.

By doing that through sponsored posts and affiliate links, I’m able to make an income with my influence. Want to hear what it’s really like to be a dog influencer? I’m pulling back the curtain in this episode!
