If you want to be an influencer but don’t know how to do it, your answer is right in the name: influence. Knowledge is truly power as influencers can use their expertise across multiple sectors in order to promote businesses, products, and services. To be an influencer, all you need is a phone and a mission. You’ll need to move people by getting your networks, followers, and listeners to believe in the things that are part of your everyday routine. From the facemask you simply can’t go a week without using, to your most trusted dog groomer, personal endorsements and promotions from influencers are a two-way street for profit; the providers you love are able to prosper as their clientele grows, while you make a commission from helping these providers.
The best part is that it’s all about you. Being an influencer is truly an individualized experience since anyone can participate and you can promote and share anything you want. There are no age, educational, or professional requirements to be an influencer about the products and services that you cherish, you must simply love them. It doesn’t matter if you’re an aspiring chef lauding over a set of cutlery, a stay-at-home dad praising a line of educational children’s books, or a dedicated varsity athlete who religiously uses a brand of workout shorts, there is a place for you and your influence.
So what are you waiting for? Pull out your camera and start snapping some pictures. Start by sharing the products that you love from around your house, or the coffee shop on the corner whose lattes you can’t get enough of. Be excited and passionate. Let your excitement show in your posts, because if you’re sharing the things that you love, you’re going to love doing it.
