NikkieTutorials! She has 6.5 million subscribers on Youtube and makes alot of money, but is that all she is here for?
Probably all of us know by know that she is queen of photoshopping her photos and faking excitement to sell products via Snapchat and her videos. Some of you may not have paid alot of attention to her snapchats, trust me I didn't in the beginning either. She usually begin telling us that something is back in stock (Something from Jouer maybe ;).), swatches it and after some snaps she says "Use code NIKKIE for $$ off". Nothing people overthink about I'm sure because it's a good deal. We save money and she gets money. Win Win!
All of her links are bit.ly links. If you're not familiar. A bit.ly link is a shorter version for links, but it also a great thing for when you use affiliate links. If you look closer on the pic above, you see that all of her links are bit.ly links and some of her links has the famous - Use code "Nikkie" to save money!
But if we look at this link for a MAC mascara we can see that it is a bit.ly link and if you click the link it directs you to rstyle.me before directing you to Nordstrom. rStyle.Me is a site for influencers to get money off of affiliate links. You use rstyle.Me like Nikkie does to link a product to a site, but that site has to be avaliable on rstyle.me. The thing is if you wanted to link a MAC mascara why don't you just link MACcosmetics.com?
So what do you guys think? Is Nikkietutorials only here for the money? Comment what you think below!
