Want to become a LTL Nano Influencer?

We are offering mandarin learners the opportunity to have free online Chinese classes through our Nano Influencer Program.

What is a Nano Influencer?

A nano influencer has anywhere between 1,000 and 10,000 followers on social media. This doesn’t have to be on just one platform!

How does LTL’s Nano Influencer Program it work? 

Through LTL’s Nano Influencer program between 2 – 6 people can receive FREE online Chinese classes together for up to 6 weeks! Between the group members, all you need to do is accumulate 10’000 points.

How does the group gain 10’000 points?

LTL Nano Influencer Program

There are three ways the group can gain points together:

  1. Posting on social media
  2. Writing reviews
  3. Making content

The first and easiest way to gain points is to post on your social media accounts. These are considered to be accumulative points. A post to 100 friends on FaceBook + 100 friends on Instagram = 200 points.

We don’t discriminate against any form of social media! Snapchat, TikTok, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, LinkedIn, YouTube, Pinterest… Maybe even something we have never heard of before!

Bonus points: Make videos

Videos on social media gain much larger attention than text and images. We also recognise that these can be a lot harder to make. We want your friends to know that you’re getting free online Chinese classes through our Nano Influencer program AND we want them to get your most authentic opinions on our classes.

What better way than video? Posting videos gets you a boost of 20% in point value. For example, posting a video to 100 friends = 120 points.

Writing Reviews

Review LTL

We think LTL Mandarin school is the best way you could possibly learn Chinese. This is (obviously) a very biased opinion. It’s for this reason we love reading the honest and non-biased opinions of our students on review websites.

After commencing your free online Chinese classes you can gain an extra 500 points for your group by posting an online review for us.

All you have to do is write about your experiences as you progress through your free Chinese course.

You can leave us reviews on:

  • Trustpilot
  • FaceBook
  • TripAdvisor
  • Go Overseas
  • Google Shanghai
  • Google Taiwan

More bonus points: Testimonial Videos

Creating Content

Check out these reviews of our online classes by Bobby and Krissi. You don’t need any video editing skills to make these!

Simply prop up your phone and answer several questions we send to you. Send the footage back and we will edit out any “ums” and “ahs” and add all these floating screen animations.

These are not the only videos you can make!

If you’re not camera-shy, don’t be limited to just one video! We have loads of topics we want to be covered on our YouTube channel.

For example, If you want to document your studies as Tobias and Mikkel did. We would welcome this kind of content on our channel in exchange for more group points.

Not comfortable on camera? 

Become a blog writer for us! Have you seen our online school blog? We cannot get enough reviews of Chinese apps, TV shows and movies. Help us write one for more points!

Here’s a breakdown of how your team can create 10’000 points.

Action Points
Post on Social Media 1 follower = 1 point
Write a LTL Review 1 review = 500 points
Create a Video (for our Youtube channel) 1 video = 500 points
Write a blog 1000 words = 500 points
Comment on our YouTube Videos 1000 words = 500 points

Things to know:

  • You can add 20% to your social media points by posting video content.
  • Video content must be pre-approved. Typically we want content around learning Chinese, China, Taiwan and Singapore.
  • Just like testimonial videos you don’t need to edit these! We can help you with content ideas, editing and advice on how to make a good video.
  • Blog writing has a 1000 word minimum. However, you don’t have to stop at 1000 words! For every additional 250 words, you’ll gain +125 points.
  • Commenting on YouTube videos?!

Yes, you read that correctly. You can gain points for your tribe by commenting on our YouTube videos. Unfortunately, we won’t be accepting comments like “cool” or “great videos”. Rather we want to know you have watched the video and given some thought into your comments.

  • Each comment must be around 100 words
  • 1 comment per video

After 10 comments, on 10 videos, 100 words long, you can then claim the same point value as if you wrote a 1000 word blog for us (500 points). Unlike blogs, you must complete 10 to claim the 500 points.

Don’t worry we have nearly 200 videos to choose from!

Find Your Tribe

Nano Influencer

Next, you need to find your group of people to make up 10’000 points. What’s the best way to do this?

We have dedicated an entire LinkedIn Group for this very purpose!

Join the group and let others know you’re looking for others to make a tribe to collectively get free Chinese classes. Here’s what they’ll need to know:

  1. Approximately how many points you can generate per week
  2. Your Chinese level
  3. What is the best time for you to have your group classes? Beijing time (GMT+8).

Discover what your best Beijing times for class are with this timezone converter. For example, 11 am Sydney Australia converts to 9 am Beijing time.

With all this information you should be able to find your partners in crime! Find people at your level of Chinese who can work with a similar time schedule.

Onboarding

So by now, you’ve got your tribe and you’re good to go. What next?

Next, you’ll have to talk with the LTL Marketing Team.

Your main point of contact will be Campbell @ ltl-school.com or if your queries are about the courses are more general please drop a message to info @ ltl-school.com.

We will take you through the Influencer Guidelines, make sure we’re all on the same page for yours and our expectations and then we can get you started with your first FREE Chinese class!

Yes, you read that correctly! Once you have your tribe together we will arrange your first FREE lesson. We can’t expect you to start making content without having first tried a lesson!

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I transfer points to another week?

You cannot post all of your content all at once.

There is a limit of 1 post per week. Ideally, we want you to create a narrative on how your classes are going.

However, if you are creating blogs and videos for our website you can do this all at once! For example, if you have agreed to 3 videos and 3 blogs per week in exchange for points. You can do this as fast as you like and the points will be distributed across your 6-week course.

Similarly, if you’ve agreed to write 6 reviews for us over 6 weeks. We would prefer you have 2-3 classes before doing so, but, you are able to write all of these at the same time. Contents can be similar to one and other, you don’t need to re-write each time.

Does LTL control what I say and do on my social media account?

Absolutely not! We will never give you anything more than guidelines on what you post on social media. You have full creative control.

When do I post on social media?

To maximise reach we would prefer it if you posted during peak periods on certain platforms. However, this is a guideline from us, it’s not a dealbreaker if you don’t follow these times.

Can I have classes by myself if I can reach 10'000 points?

Yes! Go for it! Your friends are welcome to join the class as well.

Can I be paid as a Nano Influencer

No. The idea with our Nano Influencer Program is to find people who are interested in Mandarin Chinese and happy to share all the great things going on their Chinese classes with friends.

Do Nano Influencers have to be in the same location?

No. We’re coming to you! Each influencer can post independent of one and other and then come together for online group classes.

How do we claim our classes?

We will put you all in a WeChat group together. As a group, you can decide if you would prefer your Chinese lessons through WeChat video call or Zoom. After you agreed upon a time, your teacher will call you on the agreed-upon day and time.

How long are the group's free classes?

Each weekly class is 1.5 hours.

Can I post the same content I make for LTL on my social media for points?

Yes! If you want to post the same video or blog you made for on your social media you can do so. Double points!

Can the LTL Marketing team help me out?

Yes, of course! As stated earlier we won’t put words in your mouth. However, if you want some creative ideas for videos, blogs, images or advice of any kind, we’re always here to help. You can see and read about all our staff on our meet the team page.

Can I write a blog in another language?

Yes! We run several websites for LTL Mandarin School not in English. Scroll down to see all our language options. If you see a language you feel comfortable writing in, you are more than welcome to contribute to these blogs. We have loads of blogs on our English sites that we want to be translated so we can point you in the right direction for content to write about.
