YouTube creator Jade Darmawangsa (381,000 subscribers) expanded her channel into a full-time business by working with brands on sponsorships. 

Her social-media business mainly generates income through brand deals and the Google-placed ads that play in her YouTube videos, she told Business Insider.

On average, she charges between $2,000 and $5,000 for a YouTube brand sponsorship, and between $500 and $2,000 for a sponsored Instagram post, she said. On YouTube, her monthly earnings vary, and the most she’s made from a single video is around $5,000, according to a screenshot of her dashboard viewed by Business Insider.

When trying to land brand deals, Darmawangsa uses a media kit as a tool to showcase her value to a brand or company. Media kits often contain a variety of types of information, including performance metrics, which are a key component for brands, according to Alessandro Bogliari, the cofounder and CEO of The Influencer Marketing Factory.

“When I say metrics, I don’t talk only about vanity metrics (likes, comments, views) but also about conversions,” he said in an email earlier this year. “A lot of brands are looking not only anymore for brand awareness but for real conversions (sign-ups, e-commerce sales, use of promo codes, etc). If we see any reference to actual important numbers and metrics in an influencer kit we know that we are talking with a professional that cares about giving real value to our client.”

Quiz: What’s one advantage the president has that the market does not?

Answer: He can get a doctor’s note telling you everything is wonderful. 

But investors? They’re left on their own, left trying to forecast when a stimulus bill will land, left watching every vaccine trial to spot a winner, left waiting up at night for earnings reports, and left tracking technical indicators for clues about what’s churning underneath the surface. 

Fortunately, investors do, however, have experts who can guide them. Helping us get through this messy, mucky October are Real Money and Real Money Pro writers Jim Cramer, Paul Price, Maleeha Bengali, Alex Frew McMillan, and Jim Collins.

Jim Cramer: Let’s Beat Covid-19

Cramer lays out what is happening right now to get the pandemic under control and what it will look like not that long from now — even before a vaccine is available.

Here’s the tests and therapies that Cramer contends will change the channel on the Covid outlook.

Price: Give Stocks a Second Chance 

Few stocks go up in straight-line moves. Instead, writes Price, most tend to spurt higher, tail off, then rise again. While the interim selloffs often shake out traders who mainly trade on momentum, plus those who fail to understand the companies’ true worth, there’s still opportunity awaiting for those willing to give second chances.

See how Price would play a select group of stocks — even following their earlier rebounds from March’s lows.

Jim Collins: There’s Trouble in Bubbleland 

We are in the midst of a unprecedented financial bubble, writes Collins. Will a recovery from the Covid-19 lockdowns ease the bubble before it bursts in our faces?

Read why Collins isn’t holding his breath, and how the situation could play out for insurers and others. 

Bengali: It’s Value Vs. Growth. Pick One.

Singapore Airlines is holding a ‘dining event’ later this month. Above, one of its planes lifts off in October 2019.

Nothing brings to mind pleasure quite like the memory of bumping elbows with strangers while trying to carve up “chicken or beef” with plastic cutlery.

At least, that’s what ticket holders to

Singapore Airlines

’ dining event seem to think. The airline is offering a chance for a meal on its “largest passenger aircraft,” the A380, for two weekends starting October 24 while parked on the tarmac. Don’t get your hopes up too much, though—all seats are sold out, though one can still join a wait list.

It isn’t cheap. Dining in the economy class cabin sets you back 53.5 Singapore Dollars, or roughly $40. For six times that amount, you can dine in the more spacious business-class section. And if you’re willing to shell out $472, you can even be seated in your own suite.

There are a few differences here, of course. The meals aren’t exactly the foil package variety: They will be prepared by an acclaimed chef. And the carrier is enforcing safe distancing measures between groups of passengers.

Other aspects of the dining experience still resemble flight-level hassle, though: All diners must complete a form to get access to the transit area at the Changi Airport and they must bring passports to the event.

Airlines will do anything to get their passengers back, and so far their schemes have worked resoundingly well:

All Nippon Airways


Qantas Airlines

’ pricey “flights to nowhere,” for example, were sold out.

The events might do little to make up for airlines’ revenue losses, but they provide warm reassurance to an industry that desperately needs some.

Many investors believe the real estate sector is a “boring” place to invest and that its returns couldn’t possibly match that of the S&P 500 over time.

Nothing could be further from the truth. In fact, it’s fair to say that many investors who bought REITs and held on to them for 20 years or more were able to build life-changing wealth as a result.

With that in mind, here are five rock-solid real estate investment trusts, or REITs, that have delivered quarter-million dollar returns (or much more) for investors who had the foresight and patience to invest early and let their money grow by reinvesting their dividends along the way.

1. Realty Income

Realty Income (NYSE: O) is a net-lease REIT that specializes in freestanding retail properties but focuses on tenants that are recession-resistant and that aren’t easily disrupted by e-commerce. Just to name a few examples, dollar stores, convenience stores, and drug stores are among Realty Income’s top property types.

The strategy has produced decades of consistent income and strong returns. Realty Income recently paid its 600th consecutive monthly dividend and has increased its payout more than 100 times since listing on the NYSE in 1994. Since that time, the stock has delivered annualized returns of more than 15%, and a $10,000 investment at the time of Realty Income’s listing 26 years ago would be worth more than $409,000 today.

2. Welltower

Welltower (NYSE: WELL) is the largest REIT that focuses on healthcare real estate. The company owns a massive portfolio consisting of senior housing, long-term care, outpatient medical, and hospital properties. Over the years, the company has done a great job of strategic acquisitions and dispositions, and has taken advantage of the growing need for senior-focused healthcare services in the United States.
