Stacy Teet is living proof there are 1001 ways to make a full time living online. She doesn’t have a product, nor does she have a list. But she DOES have unbelievable clout. This mom of three is a brand ambassador to national brands like Disney, Sea World and toy brand Melissa and Doug. Celebrities like Jessica Alba seek Teet out to get her seal of approval.
How did she become so influential?
The short answer: Pinterest.
According to an article on Socialexaminer.com, Teet was an early adopter of the social network when it first launched in 2010. Being a highly visual person, Teet saw it’s potential and ‘by being strategic with her content, she was able to get noticed”. Her content included tons of things we moms are crazy about,; “recipes, projects for kids, clothing, etc…She soon had over 65,000 followers. Then she had 125,000 and now boasts over 250,000 Pinterest followers”.
Teet was a blogger first before becoming a social connector. What I find so interesting was that she soon recognized her strength was not as a blogger but a social media maven. And she was able to turn that skill into consulting.
Here’s how she made that transition:
1. “Be an Early Adopter”
“Teet had always loved checking out new platforms and tools. She is constantly keeping an eye out for the latest thing”.
2. “Manage the Fire Hose”
“A self-described ‘information hoarder’ her goal is “…never to try to consume everything that people are created..but to try to stay on top of it as much as I can..”, using Pinterest and Flipboard.
3. “Go Mobile”
“As a parent of three young children, Teet does not have regular hours… she usesmobile technology…to keep tuned in. “Everything I do is mobile. I do more thingson my iPhone and on my iPad than I do on my computer”, said Teet. The only tasks she does at her desktop are posting articles to her blog and photo editing”.
