One very popular friend of mine, a social media blogger and influencer, tells EntrepreneurSalary, “One should never ever think of his/her earnings in the beginning. Love for writing, working on content, taking good care of your target audience are definitely the keys to success.”
How to begin? Follow these steps to become a social media influencer/blogger.
Step one: Just start it. Don’t even think much about making money from your blog initially. The first thing is to just start. You can make a 100 % free blog initially on Blogger, WordPress and many other platforms. There are numerous people who have no website/blog under their name but they have a very good social media following. Your earning opportunity will come once your blog attracts lots of other users and your social media account has become popular.
“Anybody who has a massive social media following but doesn’t have a blog over the internet is actually a social media influencer, not really a blogger. Having a blog that stands out is usually important. Therefore you should definitely have a specific and unique niche for your blog,” says entrepreneursalary.
Step two: Now that you might have started a blog, the next and the most crucial thing is being consistent. Consistency is vital and the key to a successful blog. Be consistent, and watch your site visitors (knowing as traffic) grow. Keep your Instagram handle a ‘business account’. It enables you to run promotions/advertisement as well as provide insights into your content and accounts.
“Social media presence is also an important factor. Ensure that you set up a user profile on Facebook and Instagram as well as other social media platforms,” says Entrepreneursalary.
Step three: Collaborate and team up with other bloggers and grow together with each other. The process will likely be slow but the hustle will probably be worth it. Do not expect yourself to be perfect yet concentrate on producing great content and you will probably improve.
