Tips on How to Become an Influencer

Published

on

It seems influencers are ruling the world these days. Everywhere you look, be it in any field of business, it is the people with the maximum number of followers who are making the most amount of money. The funny thing about becoming an influencer is that unlike most other businesses, it takes very little investment. At least, in terms of money, but you will have to give it all the time you’ve got.

Since influencers are so popular, more people nowadays dream of becoming one. To do that, you have to think of a niche that suits you best. Moreover, you also need to lose all your inhibitions. Part of being an influencer is continuously being in the eye of the public. As a result, unless you have a thick skin and can take compliments and criticism in equal amounts, you won’t last long. Once mentally prepared to take on the challenge, it is time to get down to a strategy that will help you become an influencer as fast as possible.

Be Visual

Our content nowadays is such that you have to be visual to stand out. Whether it is posting photos on Instagram or making videos for TikTok, the more you interact with your audience, the better the chance of influencing them. Moreover, since there are so many people trying to do the same thing, it is equally essential that the quality of your product is the best. Merely posting photos will not get you social media followers. You need to make sure that these photos or video content is unique and stands out, for it to get noticed.

Tips on How to Become an Influencer

Make a Video

Okay, so we are not talking about that kind of a video, although it would undoubtedly put you in the limelight really fast. Since most people like to keep our personal lives, private, the other option is to make entertaining videos that everyone enjoys watching. As a content creator and future influencer, one place to start is by watching some of the viral videos already uploaded on channels like YouTube. People particularly like animal videos, funny accidents, and ingenious chain reaction machines that you can then replicate in your own way. Remember, all it takes for you to become famous is one video, so keep trying different things and see how your audience reacts to them.

Be Controversial

Not easy for everyone, but several influencers became famous because they were controversial. However, this is a double-edged sword, and it can very easily backfire as well. So, if you plan to create a controversy by joining a hot topic of debate, make sure you do that for the right reason and can back it up. Moreover, controversy is useful when you are new and don’t have a huge follower base. It isn’t always the best tactic when you are already an influencer as it can make you unpopular amongst your present audience.

Start A Blog

To become an influencer by starting a blog takes a long time, but it is more rewarding. There are many travel and fashion bloggers in the world right now who get to go to places, stay in the top hotels and make money from it. However, all of them have had to slog it out to reach that point in their career. If you are passionate about something, and becoming an influencer is not a priority, blogging is the way to go.

Prominent figure on the Nigerian music scene, Don Jazzy, well acclaimed for his production skills, management attributes and jovial online personality, bares it all in an all revealing epistle, noting he once was married at a very young age of 20 while also giving reasons for the divorce.

Stating reason for divorce was because he “f–ked up”, making music his main priority instead of focusing himself into the marriage relationship. Don Jazzy also states he “felt bad skipping this huge [marriage] part of [his] life” during the recently released Bounce Black Box Interview with Ebuka (which is now available for streaming on YouTube).

According to Don Jazzy, he married his ex-wife 18 years ago (2003) but did not reveal this information for so long because he likes “to keep [his] relationships private actually. Past or present.”

Admitting quite frankly that it did hurt stopping the marriage with Michelle – @yarnstaswitch on Instagram, Don Jazzy truthfully kept it real, saying, “I am still very much in love with my music and I wouldn’t want to marry another and fuck it up again. So I’m taking my time.”

On his Instagram page, he uploaded the white wedding picture with the epistle, himself and Michelle (who is now a headshot model for brands and a writer based in the UK) while adding two extra photos on his Twitter, one at the registry with his parents in the background, the other which looks like their traditional wedding.

This news for sure comes as shock to many, as they are marvelled at how secretive he held on to this for so long while affiliating himself and managing various top artistes; commending his affiliates (who knew of the information) for not leaking despite their differences. Fans also commend him for being so strong for so long, advising him to take his time, praying the right time will come soonest.
