If you want to become a millionaire social media influencer in Nigeria, then you’re at the right place ☺
I’m going to guide you on the 5 Best Ways To Become A Millionaire Social Media Influencer. It isn’t rocket science. If they can do it, you too can. All that is required is patience, consistency and passion for your desired niche.
TIPS ON BECOMING A SOCIAL MEDIA INFLUENCER
1. BE ON SOCIAL NETWORKING SITES
There are loads of social networking sites but the most popular are Facebook, twitter, Instagram and snapchat. To become a social media influencer, you must register on those platforms and secure an account. One of the mistake some people make in their quest to becoming an influencer is being on hundreds of social networking sites. It doesn’t work like that. Two social platforms are enough to avoid divided attention. If you focus on one or two platforms, you discover that you tend to build followers faster than when you’re handling about 10 accounts on different social media platforms.
2. SELECT A NICHE
There are many niche out there, but the most popular here in Nigeria are entertainment, fashion, travel and food. Before you choose a niche as an aspiring social media influencer, ensure that you discover your passion.
What is that which appeals most to you? What can you talk about for ages without getting exhausted? That is your niche.
It could be about business, agriculture, music, relationship, sports etc. Choose a niche that you know so much about, because that is what makes you a leader. If you delve into a niche you know nothing or little about, you are just wasting your time.
3. BE CONSISTENT
Many people have been on the path to become a social media influencer but because they were not consistent with their activities, they couldn’t get any good result and hence, quit within 3 months. The main reason I advise you go into a niche that you’re passionate about is because passion will keep you going even when there is no reason to.
I remember when I started blogging. It was purely for the passion and nothing more and because of that, I was able to blog for one whole year without any monetization. It’s the third year now and my life has experienced lot of improvement all round. Passion makes you consistent even when the rewards are yet to come.
4. BUILD STRONG RELATIONSHIP
To succeed as a social media influencer, you need to master the art of networking very well. You need to know how to build relationship with other influencers and your followers/audience. By doing this, they also help you rise. Imagine when you get a shout out from someone like Linda Ikeji, that will accord you thousands of followers within a minute. How do you do that? By replying to their comments and being formal.
The first step to failure is when you start seeing yourself as a god. Many people make this mistake. They start sounding like robots whenever they make attempt to respond to a comment. By building relationship, you build a community of loyal followers who can go miles to prove their loyalty to you.
5. GRASP TRENDS
Whatever that is trending, always look for an opportunity to link it to your niche and tap from the publicity. Whether good or bad, publicity is publicity. Everyone seem to hate this popular crossdresser called Bobrisky, but he is successful as a social media influencer. Why? Below is the mathematical formula…
Good Publicity = Publicity
Bad Publicity = Publicity
Good Publicity + Bad Publicity = Publicity
The End Product is Money, Recognition And Fame!
Becoming a successful social media influencer here is very possible if you play your cards well. If there are people who are already making it in that niche, it means you equally have a chance. My final word is be original. Don’t copy others. Be unique and you’ll end up becoming a role model to your followers.
