Iolande on Why Become an Influencer?
An influencer is someone that has the power to influence, corny definition but there it is. To go deeper an influencer is someone that can encourage sales of a book, product or service. An influencer can help to direct the general conversation around a topic or idea. An influencer can set trends.
Online, this tends to show up as the Instagram star, the YouTube creator, or the big blogger. These are the people we turn to for online content, whose opinions and intuitions we trust above others.
Understandably, big businesses want to work with influencers. They recognize that they offer the opportunity to not only increase awareness, but also to gain endorsement from someone whose opinion matters.
A successful influencer can earn as much as $1,000 per 100,000 followers on a given account, and if they promote their own products, then they can stand to earn even more! This is why most online entrepreneurs strive to become influencers.
It only happens for a few and they live lavish lifestyle because of it. However, the vast majority of online business owners never achieve this level of success simply because they don’t understand the secrets to becoming an influencer.
