Do you want to become an influencer in your niche? If you do then follow these 5 steps!
The first step to becoming an influencer is deciding what you want to be an influencer of! You'll want to pick something you like and know a lot about! Make sure it's something you can create content about and that people are interested in!
Next, you need to decide where you want to be an influencer. Pick the social platform that makes the most sense for you and your niche. If you're great on video, YouTube might be right for you. If you're great at taking photos then Instagram could be your jam!
How often are you going to post? You should base this on the platform you chose! Also, make sure it's something you can keep up with over time. You don't want to start out posting a ton and get burnt out!
There's no reason to do what you can automate! Schedule your posts so you stay consistent! One of my favorite tools...
Do you want more Instagram followers?
Duh, who doesn't right!
Maybe you want more followers just for fun, or maybe you're a business owner that wants to use Instagram to get more clients.
Either way, these tips are sure to help you out!
What's your username? Make sure it's either your name or your company name. Also, be sure to use the same username on every social platform, so you're easy to find!
Do you have a business account on Instagram? You should! Having a business account allows you to see all of your analytics! To have a business account, all you need it a Facebook Page.
You want your profile pic to match your overall account! Make sure it's something eye-catching that makes people want to click it to learn more about you!
Your bio should tell people who you are, what you do, and why they should care. It should also give them a reason to click the link!
Your link in your bio...

Relax...I am...take a chill pill sassy pants. I have a point! It doesn't matter if you want to be an influencer on YouTube or Snapchat or Instagram...you still need a home base. Why? Because what happens when the platform you're a celebrity on up and disappears? Myspace? Vine? Ring a bell? What happens when they change their algorithms and you have to PAY to reach YOUR FANS? Wouldn't you rather already have those people on lock? Facebook Pages ring a bell?
Now you can do whatever you want, but when you hit 100k followers on Instagram and your account gets hacked, don't come crying to me!
