Hire me as Influencer / Creator / Social Media Manager

Who is Lincoln Ho?

My name is Lincoln Ho and I’m a 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 has over 70,000 followers between @yegventures and @yegventuresfood 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

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):

  • TikTok video
  • Instagram Reel, story, or post
  • Facebook video or post
  • Twitter post, live tweeting
  • Blog post on my website
  • Account takeover for an event
  • Boosted posts/ads

What I Offer as a Social Media Manager

When a company, organization, or individual invests in me as a social media manager, I am able to offer my expertise in content creation, draw from my library of local and related captured media, and help reach goals set by the client. This may mean a temporary contract for a festival or event, or regular on-going management. Frequency of posts is determined by client’s budget, as well as existing supplied content. As a content creator, I do prefer creating content for my clients to understand and experience what I am helping to market.

I have experience in the following platforms with over one million video views on at least one account (^with single videos over 1M views, *with over 500K views):

  • ^TikTok
  • ^Instagram
  • Facebook
  • YouTube
  • *Twitter
  • *Vine (discontinued platform)

What I Offer for Training, Consultation, and Appearances

I offer training sessions and consultations for individuals, groups, and organizations in empowering individuals to curate and create their own content for their accounts. Especially for organizations with many independent users, training helps to complement and boost the great work they’re already doing. From beginner to expert level training, I offer a range of customized sessions no other individual can offer in Edmonton due to my wide range of knowledge and experience with social media and content creation. All my sessions are dynamic, interactive, and never repeated as I present based on the needs of the audience.

I have spoken at the Catholic Media Conference in St. Petersberg, Florida in May 2019 which I advised attendees to get onto a little upcoming platform known as TikTok which didn’t become mainstream until before March 2020. I’ve done training for roughly 100 churches across the the Catholic Archdiocese of Edmonton, and was the keynote speaker for a digital media event organized by the Roman Catholic Diocese of Calgary. I’ve also offered a social media workshop for the Whyte Avenue Art Walk to teach local artists how to promote their artwork, create engaging content, and stand out. Other than other one-on-one consultations and training, I have been invited by the TELUS World of Science as a guest for their Dark Matters Social Media theme night.

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.
