My grandparents brought me up in Wales when I was very young. They were school masters and gave me the motto — ‘good, better, best, never let it rest, until the good is better and the better is the best.’ It was actually given to school children as a means of learning grammar.


I had the pleasure of interviewing Nia Davies, founder of Yugenial. Last year she set up her first company at 25 years old and has previously worked in Finance Technology, as well as writing for various publications such as TimeOut London and Doctify App.

What are your “Top Five Ideas About How Influencers Can Monetize Their Brand” . (Please share a story or example for each.)

  1. Consulting: running the social media channels for another brand or offering advice on improving SEO and general marketing are a good way to earn flexible side income. I know many people that have set up their own social agencies. You can also charge to run events and leverage your contacts like a PR firm.
  2. Subscription: Offering a subscription service to a course, product or set of articles — platforms like Medium have now facilitated this. Set up your own online or live courses which people can pay to download or access.
  3. Branded products: Launching your own line of branded products or working in tandem with existing brands to sell your own range. You could even offer your own blog templates or code.
  4. Affiliate marketing: earning passive income through links on your blog is one of the most popular options and capitalises on traffic
