Whether you’re a nano, micro, or macro influencer, monetizing your content and community on social media can be hard.
For one, it’s highly competitive.
For two, social media platforms don’t give you the personalization options your followers crave.
And third, since platforms like Instagram and TikTok don’t allow you to post links with your content, your precious revenue-driving links are hidden in videos or a linktree–barely getting clicks even with your best efforts.
The restrictiveness of these platforms limits the control you have over your own content leading to lower affiliate conversions, engagement, and–revenue!
But there’s good news! Carrot is here to put the control back in your hands as a tastemaker and influencer.

Carrot is a social shopping platform that lets you collect all your favorite things across the internet and curate them into personalized collections. From clothing to travel, home decor to DIY projects, as an influencer and tastemaker, you can recommend and share your collections, making them free or paid to your community.

1. Boosts Your Link Visibility & Curate Stunning Collections
Think– a beautiful collection of your products with affiliate links on one scrollable page.
All your community has to do is click the item they like, and you get paid.
And the best part? If your community doesn’t make a purchase right away, your affiliate links can travel with them from site to site.
It works something like this. Once they download Carrot’s browser extension, and subscribe to your page, we automatically connect them to your affiliate links, revealing them in optimal moments as they go shopping in their own browser. Your collections become more accessible to them, boosting the likelihood of monetization up to 10 times.
Plus, we give you a branded Carrot link with all of your collections which you can link to your Instagram bio, YouTube description, or TikTok to boost your traction and revenue.
- Easy visual bookmarking tool
- One branded link for all your content and collections

2. Helps Create Paid Content For Monthly Subscribers
Long gone are the days of consumers looking just to celebrities for the hottest trends and recommendations. Influencers and tastemakers are the new “it” girls (and boys)!
As a tastemaker, your community is looking to you for the best product recommendations, and in most cases, they’re willing to pay for your expert taste!
With Carrot, you can ask your subscribers to pay you a small amount of $5 per month tobe the first to know about your exclusive content and get access to deals and discounts. And, folks, this amount can add up fast!
For example: If 10% of your 10k followers are willing to pay $5 per month for your content, you could potentially earn $5000 every month. And as your subscriber base grows, so does your monthly revenue.
- Flexibility to create exclusive subscriber-only content
- Monthly recurring revenue
- Freedom to add both affiliate and non-affiliate links
- Promote products and sponsors at high CPMs.
Carrot uses Stripe to make payments easy and secure for creators and subscribers.

With this, you create meaningful connections with your community by cutting through the social media noise and engaging with them on a personal level. This means you aren’t strictly governed by algorithms you don’t control — your reach to your audience is guaranteed, and your engagement with products and things you recommend see all-time highs.
You can also use your email influence to collaborate with brands who want to reach your community directly. This can help you leverage your email list and create new revenue streams.
