Paid Post Timeline
Last week I asked how long do you ask for paid posts to stay live?  
Because of this article that covered a cafe owner who didn't want to pay once a post was archived.

Sonia Laglotz, Founder of Round Twelve says
Most of our contracts require hired talent to keep a post up for a period of one year. When influencers archive prior to that, it skews the perception of the number of paid posts they have done or can lead a brand in a specific category to think that they might have exclusivity over a category when that is actually false. 

Carina Toledo, Influencer Partnerships Manager at Awin says
Our agreements in the UK ask that sponsored content is kept live for a minimum of 6 months. My thoughts are that if they don’t want that content on their feed/blog/channel for 6 months, they should not be agreeing to the collaboration and should strive to work with brands that they are proud of.

Why All The Stuff About Podcasts?
You might not have noticed but I've covered a few more types of creators recently. Specifically podcasts. Even in this edition podcasts are mentioned twice.

Why? Because it's on my mind. I'm launching a podcast.

It's not your normal interview of the week. Just like this newsletter is not a normal tweetstorm of information. 

The podcast is being delivered by email. It is actually part of a new, paid version of the newsletter you're getting now.

Influence Weekly: The Takeaway utilizes Substack's email platform to deliver you tons of value for $5 a month. 
  1. I'll be releasing an audio version of this newsletter.
  2. You'll get highlights.
  3. You'll also get insider information about the industry first.
But wait there's more
The most important feature of the $5 a month version is that you tell me what features to include.

Do you want more articles to read? Do you want business leads from the articles? What do you need to make you even smarter?

Click here to register for Influence Weekly: The Takeaway

And by the time you get this email I've already created my first edition of the audio version of Influence Weekly. Tell me how you liked it.
Insider Tip
Go and register even if you don't plan on paying. I'll be creating a free tier there so you will get free versions occasionally.
