LTK Creators share advice for aspiring influencers

“Stay committed to the process and find your own voice. LTK is a platform and community where you get as much as you put into it (and so much more). Invest time in understanding your LTK Analytics to see what items and brands are resonating with your audience.” —Jennifer, @jenniferlake 


Just dive in! Progress over perfection. You don't have to know everything to get started. You will get better, it will get easier. Just get started, be authentic and put yourself out there. Linking collages is a great way to earn without actually having to shop for the exact pieces. This is especially helpful for beginners, who may feel they need to do a lot of shopping to be a Creator. My product collages perform just as well as the content where I'm actually wearing items.” —Alison, @_getyourprettyon 


“It may seem intimidating to take the first step  but my best advice is to go for it! I could have never imagined the possibilities or imagined the business I would create in just a few years! And it all started from applying to be a LTK Creator! You’ll never know if you don’t try!” —Andrea, @lifeoncedarlane
