Influencers are like digital celebrities, back in the day, becoming a superstar usually meant starring in movies or singing chart-topping hits, but the digital revolution changed everything!

Influncers are individuals who have the power to affect the purchasing decisions of others because of their authority, knowledge, position, or relationship with their audience.

This power comes from following in a distinct niche, with whom they actively share their passions, talents, and adventures with. Influencers create content that resonates with people and sparks connections and inevitably people look up to them to guide them with their decision making. 


With that out of the way, here are a few tips to help you make it as an influencer

  3. Be Consistent: Rome wasn't built in a day, and neither will your online empire! Be patient and post regularly everything else will flow.

  4. Engage with Your Community: Respond to comments, host live sessions, let your fans connect with you better. It builds a more personal relationship.

  5. Stay Authentic: Stay true to yourself, and your audience will love you for it.
