How did you get started as an influencer?
I have always loved social media, especially the business side of it. I lived in NYC to pursue filmmaking and acting. I fell in love with the artwork of both.
So naturally, I used my craft to integrate it in videos that I think people will find entertaining.
How do you generate revenue as an influencer?
There are multiple ways that I have generated revenue as a social media influencer.
There are two main ways:
First, as of now, is directly through the process of posting on applications and being compensated by the company.
Then there are the brand deals – which are fun to do.
How long did it take you to start making money as an influencer?
It took me 5 – 6 months after consistently posting everyday. I had imagined a career as a social media influencer to be a fun job. Like any job you have to be consistent.
When you were starting out, was there ever a time you doubted it would work? If so, how did you handle that?
I was very confident in myself that I would have success in this business. Not sure when that success would be noticeable, but I knew that it was inevitable.
Obviously, I had tons of doubters but you can’t pay attention to them. I just stayed focused and true to myself.
How did you get your first customer?
My following and engagement is what I believe had these people reach out to me.
I can’t remember when I got my first customer. It’s a lot to recall.
What is one marketing strategy (other than referrals) that you’re using that works really well to generate new business?
Quality over quantity is a classic saying. In the beginning of my journey it was more so focused on quantity. That was a strategy technique that’s fine at the start. Now that I have a significantly larger following the potential of a piece of content doing well has increased drastically.
What is the toughest discussion you had to make in the last few months?
I had to choose my manager recently. It’s difficult. Contemplating who would be close to you and your business making decisions is important. You have to pick someone you’re confident with.
What do you think it is that makes you successful?
My facial expressions and the energy I give off in my content. When people are genuinely enjoying the content I make it is a moment of satisfaction. Then I’ll probably double down on my fans and just try to create the best kind of stuff!
What has been your most satisfying moment in business?
When people reach out to me and say that I made their day better with my work. It doesn’t get better than that. My life has purpose. It’s awesome!
What does the future hold for your business? What are you most excited about?
I honestly hope to keep progressing and collaborate with all the giant creators. There are a lot that I’ve looked up through my social media journey, but I want to work with them!
What business books have inspired you?
Rich Dad Poor Dad. It’s a very common read but it’s also very useful. A great book. I recommend it.
What advice would you give your younger self?
Ignore the haters. Be persistent. Timeless advice that needs to be listened to often!
Are you willing to be a mentor? If so, how should someone contact you?
I would consider it. Reach out via email: firstname.lastname@example.org
