Hire me as Influencer / Creator / Social Media Manager

Who is Lincoln Ho?

My name is Lincoln Ho and I’m a full time digital content creator out of Edmonton, Alberta. I’ve been creating content for digital use for nearly two decades, even before YouTube was established. Over the years, I have been hired professionally to capture and create content for many clients over the years, whether as a paid hire, social media sponsorship, partnerships with in-kind gifts, or to help with local non-profit organizations. I’ve also included examples of my public work (linked where available) to let the content speak for itself.

Yegventures

My main brand Yegventures as of November 1, 2023 has over 130,000 followers between @yegventures (77,000) and @yegventuresfood (51,000) across multiple social media platforms including TikTok, Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube. Through Yegventures, I am currently a mid-tier influencer.

Yegventures produces online digital content both on social media and this website. Yegventures publishes the best of Edmonton and beyond, and in recent years, travel content has been included alongside food and general interest.

In 2022, I was selected to as part of the Edmonton Elks Influencer program.

What I Offer as an Influencer / Content Creator

As of 2023, I now only offer original video projects as that brings the most views for my partners. When a company, organization, or individual invests in me as an influencer for their content creation, I am able to offer any of the following services (or combination thereof):

  • Clapper video (new platform)

  • Ethical posting following FCAC guidelines (Canadian version of FTC)

I have experience in the following platforms with over 1,000,000 video views on at least 8 accounts. (^including single videos with over 1,000,000 views):

  • ^TikTok
  • ^Instagram
  • YouTube
  • Facebook

I have run accounts on these platforms with over 500,000 video views.

Each and every one of my clients receives customized service for their needs and budget. Other factors in cost may include paid ads, travel & accommodations, and additional purchases. Feel free to contact me for a consultation.

Past and Current Client Projects

At the request of the organizations (they made first-contact), I have worked with the following organizations in media/influencer partnerships in the past: paid, unpaid, and gifts-in-kind. Note that as I transition to become a full-time freelancer, paid partnerships are preferred for future collaborations and opportunities. This list is incomplete and not listed in any particular order.

I have been promoting content on digital mediums before the term ‘influencer’ was a word, and before some rules and regulations were established. Some older content may not follow current influencer marketing guidelines, but I have included the work in this list.

*There was an issue with my Instagram account not having all features, so I had to create a new account for Yegventures Food. All food partnership posts prior to 2021 are now on an archived account.
Large scale events such as locally-operated Glow Edmonton have partnered with me multiple times over the years.

Professionalism

I work in a professional manner with all my clients. I stand by ethical means of gaining audiences organically (not buying followers, nor using bots for follower engagement). I seldom make first contact with a brand and mainly rely on repeat customers, referrals, or organic reach (In other words, I would never contact anyone to get free stuff).

For influencer collaborations and opportunities, I follow all professional guidelines with regards to influencer disclosure agreements and usage of non-copyright materials. If content is not reaching its targeted viewership, I may offer a in-platform paid promotion of the content to ready the goal based on the contract terms. I also provide screenshots of analytics for campaigns.

I am here to promote clients using my content, and not for self promotion to get more followers (i.e. follow to win). I also stand behind the merit of my work.

For accessibility needs, I offer captioning for short-form content either as text on video, or as a captioning file.

I have partnered with University Hospital Foundation for hire and volunteered my services for years as a cause I am dear to.
