If you tried to mimic another’s style, it will only reflect badly on yourself and encourage a lot of hate. An example is a lady called Coco who became viral from talking with a fake accent and was exposed for it.
1. Why should you be an influencer?
2. How do you make yourself stand out in the crowd?
i. Start smallIn order to beat the competition, you should start small by sharing something you’re passionate about. It can about anything! Arts, fashion, animals, technology, food, nature, you name it! Your followers will slowly build up with the right exposure.
ii. Appropriate content
iii. Be yourselfMost importantly, be yourself. If you tried to mimic another’s style, it will only reflect badly on yourself and encourage a lot of hate. An example is a lady called Coco who became viral from talking with a fake accent and was exposed for it. You can have a look at her video and learn something from her.
3. How do you increase your following?
It is important to build your network online and offline. Building your network online is important, but sometimes people neglect the importance of offline networking. Attend as many events (relevant to you, of course) and know more people. These people will be your stepping stones to success.
i. Network building
ii. Self-promotionDon’t forget to promote yourself. Not to the point that people get annoyed, but instead, you can try to encourage people to take a look at your work using persuasive methods. For example, how does your content benefit them? Is it something amusing? Educational? Determine your content and promote accordingly.
iii. Stay in trend
4. What platform should you use?
Depending on your content, you should use appropriate platforms. Is it picture-heavy without much context? Try Instagram! What about both word and picture-heavy? Try getting a blog! Enjoy recording your travels? Post them on Youtube! These are a few suggestions but you can try to play around to discover which platform suits you the best.
