First, becoming an influencer – you need to know and understand who is an influencer.
So, I will take it step-by-step so you can download the knowledge well into your brain ok.
Who is an influencer:
An influencer is an individual who has the power to speak and his/her followers act. Technically, an influencer has the power to affect the personal behavior and/or purchasing decisions of others because of his or her authority, knowledge, position, or relationship with his or her audience.
If you remember, I said “you’re among the 140,800 people who’re ready to start raining that million dollar$”, because if you take away 140,000 from 7 billion people in the world, then you’re left with 6,999, 859,200 people in the world to influence their personal behavior and/or purchasing decisions, that’s a large untapped market, considering these number of people; do you think you will not own that dream car, house or the luxurious lifestyle you desire to live? If you ask me? You’re just few steps away from it.
Now that you know who is an influencer, now it’s time to know the types of influencers.
Types of influencers:
There are different types of influencers out there. In the influential world, we can break the types of influencers into five distinct categories which are – Mega, Macro, Mid-Tier, Micro, and Nano. Their million$ come depending on their audience size.
Here is a structure illustrating the 5 types of influencers we have out there.
As you can see the image above, just as any other normal thing, you must start from the base to the top. Just keep reading as I will explain everything as we go down. One good thing I love about influencers is; they inter-connect between themseleves helping the industry grow, its what’s known as influential networking.
For example you can be a Nano influencer, you can easily connect with a Macro Influcencer who’s in your same niche to boost your influencer content and other materials you may have to promote.
Now, how do you become an influencer
Becoming an influencer can be broken down into these 3 primary steps which you need to know to actually become; not only an influencer, but a successful one at that:
- Identify Your Niche
- Pick Your Platform
- Create and Distribute Your Content.
Identify Your Niche: First, to become an influencer, you must first define who you are – because defining who you are will help you define who your target audience will be (people who will follow you as their diehearted influencer, their idol, their icon, their God). If you want to become an influencer, you can’t expect to be a “jack (or jane) of all trades, master of none.” It is crucial that you pick a niche that aligns with your image or personality.
An easy way to select your niche is to evaluate your strengths and weaknesses. Choose a niche that allows you to showcase your strengths and hone your skills further.
Deciding on a particular niche will help you streamline your audience and tailor your content to suit their needs and preferences. Most important defining your niche keeps you very focus in whatever you’ll be doing, which helps in the perfection of you influencing the masses. When you master your influencing authority, you just need to flip the switch today, wake up in the next day and go to the bank.
Typically, when deciding on a perfect niche choice on becoming a successful influencer, I always advice my readers to choose their passion. Because doing what you love, I don’t think you will have to stress much on how to craft a curated content for your audience to stick and belief on, since you’re actually doing your passion. That is getting paid by brands for doing you, OMG that’s what I so much love about this work.
Some of these niches could be:
Health and Fitness
And any word that defines YOU…
You don’t necessarily have to limit yourself to just one of these categories. Overtime, after which you’ve mastered one correctly; you can combine two or more of these niches. However, make sure the individual niches align with one another. For instance, you can combine “travel and lifestyle” or “beauty and fashion” when you decide on your niche.
Pick Your Platform: When it comes to picking the right platform, there are four main types of platforms which you’ll have to consider based on the types of content you’ll be producing for your audience. As an influencer, you need to have a powerful presence on the internet. However, that doesn’t mean that you should use every social media platform and distribution channel out there. Depending on your niche, certain platforms might be better suited for your content than others. For example we have YouTube, SoundCloud, Instagram, and Thinkle; these are the four world leading internet influencer’s platforms.
As you can see above, if you want to showcase yourself through video demonstration, YouTube would work better for your video content than other platforms; likewise SoundCloud would work better for your audio or podcast content; While Instagram would work better for your image content; and Thinkle would work perfectly for your written content. Ideally statistic shows most influencers prefer Instagram and Thinkle over other platforms like YouTube and SoundCloud because it actually takes a hell of time to actually produce a quality video or poscast content. In fact, 73% of social influencers prefer Instagram and Thinkle as it requires less work and delivers the best results. However, that doesn’t mean that you should focus all of your effort only on these four main platforms if your niche doesn’t align with them. You still have other top influential sites like Linkedin, Twitter, Pinterest, and Facebook.
Create and Distribute Your Content: First what is content? Content is any material created or produced to be consumed by audience. For example when you watch a movie, you’re consuming a content created or produced by its creator. Your ultimate goal for creating contents should be something that you know will add value to your audience. Which the moment they start engaging with your content, that’s all… your money start to flow like rain.
After which you create your content, then it’s now time to publish and distribute it, that is where you need to make use of the four popular influential platforms as previously mentioned above. Once your content is published and you start receiving few followers, and then know your work has started paying off. Because after followers comes brand sponsors, once brand sponsors start paying hundreds to thousands of dollars to you to post a single sponsored post, then you’ve now become a successful influencer.
How much do influencers make:
Social influencer’s makes an earning of something between $300.00 to $1 million plus per most. Keeping in mind that most Nano influencers with an estimated audience size from 1,000 to 100,000 following has the ability to start charging upto $300 per post. While influencers between the Micro, Mid-Tier levels with estimated audience size from 100,000 to 1 million following can start charging upto $100,000 per post. Finally top influencers who’re at the Macro, Mega level with estimated audience size from 10 million following starts to charge from $1 million+ per post.
The Mega Influencer
According to Takido Monfow, CEO and co-founder of Thinkle – a memory streaming platform, he quotes;
a mega influence is certainly being,
…more famous than influential; over the veil.
He further when ahead and said: “They aren’t necessarily subject matter, but they definitely provide a lot of reach and million sales in one hit. This is because they simply flip the switch and the rest of audience just reacts”.
Following the Takido’s quote:
An example of this would be Kylie Jenner, whom Forbes named as “America’s youngest self-made billionaire” earlier this year (although many question the “self-made” moniker, given her family association with the Kardashians).
With 138 million followers on Instagram, Jenner is reputed to charge up to $1 million per sponsored post or advertorial when working with brands. While a million dollars is a lot of money for one post, macro influencers (and mid-tier’s that promote them) would argue that the reach offered is worth it.
Indeed, as the Instagram post above shows, one post from these types of mega influencers can get in front of more than 10 million people, and let’s say just 4% of those people make a purchase even at the cost of $10 only. That gives the brand a solid ROI of $4 million dollars. This strategy is known in business as Fast-Turn-Over “you invest $1 million to make $4 million within a day or two.
Technically, what happened? The influencer have the audience, the brand has the money. So they agree, strategize, then make a sale and split the outcome; the influencer goes with $1 million, the brand goes with $3 million JUST LIKE THAT. The good thing I love most here is the fact that brands always pay complete payment even before you publish the post. Making the influencing lifestyle a glamorous one.
