How To Be An Influencer
Don’t think about the money in the beginning. Yes I know that’s not what you want to hear but it will lead to a lot of problems. What you need to focus on is building your brand. Trust is an element that is not talked about enough in the industry. It is what will get you the bags down the line. So focus on building it.
The less you care about the engagement the better. You will lose your mind trying to please Instagram. Post what you want when you want..your audience will find you. If you can look at my IG it doesn’t look like a ‘blogger Instagram account ‘and it’s the happiest I have been with my account. I have become more creative since I didn’t mind what people thought about my account. On that …you need to not care about what people say about you and create content that makes you happy.
The only thing you should be copying from your favourite bloggers is their constancy and work ethic. That is the only common factor in all success stories really. Not how they edit the videos or pictures and smile on camera. Everything else it’s them and you cant be them ..you can only be you. I personly for years been trying to look and sound like my favourite and that hasn’t helped me much. You cant be influenced to the point you don’t like any content you create because it doesn’t look like that blogger you admire so much.
Set yourself rules because it will be hard keeping up with everything trust me. The rule that seems to work for me is to create more content then I consume. It might be nice to sit on youtube the whole day but I limit myself as to how long I consume content and I feel much happier.
But enjoy yourself ..and don’t kill yourself for the likes, please.
