Re: No, you should not pay online influencers for their advocacy - http://getlittlebird.com/2013...
"I'm curious why you believe that online influencers should be giving away all their knowledge and influence away for free? They didn't get that influence overnight. They worked very hard to cultivate a community and they give back to that community by sharing every day. If a brand wants to tap into that, they should be paying. I don't have a problem if someone has a question or if a brand asks a question, that is part of networking and building relationships. If they want access to my audience, that is a completely different ball game. As John Andrews wrote on Ted Rubin's blog http://bit.ly/LV3AsH, brands wouldn't expect Time Warner to give them free advertising. The brands are asking for access to Time Warner's audience which is exactly what brands are asking of online influencers. What makes those two different?" - Michele McGraw
