Socratica is now an Amazon Influencer

Socratica doesn’t have any beauty recommendations for you.

It’s fun, we just don’t have anything to contribute here.

 

And we don’t do Follow Me pictures.  We’re mostly sitting at our desks, working.

Kudos to Murad Osmann for popularizing this new style of photo.

 

But we can recommend great books ALL DAY LONG.

THIS we can do!

 

I thought “Influencer” was a term only used for YouTube vloggers and the beautiful people on Instagram.  I’m happy to learn I was wrong!

Amazon has opened the doors of its Influencer Program to a wide variety of YouTube channels. This is an opportunity for these channels to share their favourite products, and for all of us to buy from their storefronts as a way to support these channels. The creators receive a small percentage of every purchase made through the links on their storefronts.

And now… Socratica is an Amazon Influencer. Did not think this was going to happen. But here it is, our new storefront:

 

Some clear pros and cons:

PROS:

  • Easy to Use – I got this up and running in under 5 minutes.
  • Easy to Update
  • Includes pictures of items

CONS:

  • Not customizable – we’d love to break this into sections (Math, Chemistry, Film Equipment)
  • No place to write blurbs. Let us say WHY we’re recommending a product.

 

I’m all for exploring alternate revenue streams, since YouTube ad revenue is not nearly enough to support a business.  So we set up our shop, and we’ll start sharing the link, and we’ll see what happens.  Let us know what you think (or if you have any other ideas to fund our scicomm work at Socratica).
