InfluenceLogic’s Mission to Support the Community

homeless id project

Here at InfluenceLogic, we are committed to supporting the community and are constantly looking for ways that we can help. We have chosen to partner with the Homeless ID Project in their efforts to end homelessness. Everyone needs some sort of identification. Homeless individuals need an ID to access services, get a job or find housing. Those living on the streets or in a shelter often lose their documents, or get them stolen. The mission of the Homeless ID Project is to end homelessness for individuals and families. 

What Is the Homeless ID Project? 

What began as a small outreach effort 33 years ago has evolved into an established office on the Human Services Campus in downtown Phoenix and partnership programs across the Valley. Homeless ID Project is the only organization in Arizona with a singular focus on helping men, women, and children experiencing homelessness to rebuild their lives by obtaining identification. 

How does having an ID impact a life? 

  1. Permanent housing – signing a lease
  2. Employment – obtain a stable income
  3. Medical care – access to medical care
  4. Education – enroll children in school 

Services the Homeless ID project provides:

  1. Replacement documents
  2. Financial Assistance
  3. File Storage
  4. Additional Help

Why Did InfluenceLogic Choose the Homeless ID Project?

Homelessness is a rising issue not just in the Phoenix community, but around the nation. Not only does the Homeless ID Project provide homeless individuals with Identification, their  partners also offer referrals for food and housing, rehabilitation programs, medical assistance, and other services. 

So why did InfluenceLogic choose the Homeless ID Project? Steve Mesa, InflueceLogic COO, said this: “We have ties to creators and brands across the country and even the world, and most of our team members are located in different states, but by far the community that has had the biggest impact on our success has been Phoenix. We are very adamant about using our company and platform to make the world a better place and this principle applies to both creators being able to earn a living, but also to those who do not have the opportunity to pursue something like this because they are in need of basic necessities like shelter and food. This is where our commitment to making the world a better place begins. It begins with helping people who need it the most and the Homeless ID Project is a great vehicle to help our team members and company work towards this goal.”

Oftentimes, people who have ID don’t even think twice about it. It’s just a small piece of plastic, but if you are someone who has not had an ID for years, it helps you take your identity back. Rick Mitchell, Executive Director of Homeless ID Project said it best: “Business owners feel moved and inspired by our mission and want to share that mission with their employees in order to create a culture within that organization that recognizes the value of helping in our community.”

Startup Thinking in Your Influencer Business

During pitches from a start-up founder, I often ask the question, “What makes you the right person to build this company?”. During a pitch a few years ago, I had a founder give a unique answer to the question, ”I just needed a job.” While that was refreshingly honest, it was also an answer that left me a little hollow as a potential investor. There was no talk of solving a problem, speaking to a customer base, or even maximizing profit. Needless to say, the startup didn’t get my money.

Protecting Yourself as an Influencer

There’s a lot of information out there about how to become an Influencer, or how to grow your influencer business. But one step you should consider aside from planning your Instagram photo color scheme or editing your YouTube videos is how to protect yourself legally.

3 Ways to Show Brands You Care

As a creator, it is important to show brands that you care by building strong relationships with the ones that support your channel. For one, the income brands offer can help you turn YouTube into a full-time career. Secondly, your fans want to see you promote brands you believe in. I always recommend creators find a handful of brands they truly love, build genuine relationships, and then come to mutually beneficial long-term partnership terms. Jumping from brand to brand causes distrust in your audience and in my experience, that distrust leads to poorer results for brands. It is a negative cycle you want to avoid at all costs.

Taking Control of the Approval Process

Creating content takes a lot of time and resources. The last thing any creator wants is to have a brand request a reshoot or significant edits prior to publication. And vice versa, the last thing a brand wants is to miss their content calendar / budgeting goals because videos require significant changes. It is in everyone’s best interest that videos and integrations meet brand requirements on the first round of approvals and that publication is not delayed. Here are three ways I have seen highly professional creators “take control” of the content creation and review process to ensure a quick and easy approval process.
