Select A Niche:

Firstly, one must select the field one is interested in. This is an important decision as there are a lot of influencers in various fields. One must also have some sort of expertise in the field they decide to focus on so as to establish oneself as an influencer. Apart from this, as an influencer one has to research and post content related to the particular field so as to keep the audience engaged. 

Build A Social Media Profile:

As an influencer, one must realize that their social media platforms can no longer be private. Switching to business accounts opens up more options. Apart from this, one must start creating a personality. Construct an engaging bio and add a profile picture and cover photo that will attract the attention of the audience and speak a little about the content they may see on your profile.

Understanding each social media channel is of vital importance. Think about the type of content and take inspiration from influencers who are currently on your platform of choice, while your uniqueness needs to stand out in your content, taking inspiration from those who are doing well and incorporating certain things might help creat a familiarity for audiences.

Know Your Audience

Due to the advancement of technology and the development of the internet; the influencer marketing eco-system is full of talented individuals who are now not only your competitors but also the standard you need to meet or even better to get the masses in your direction. One must be able to stand out from thousands of influencers in that field. Understanding the audience is key to achieving just that. A lot of research has to be done before posting any content. Figuring out what type of content the audience prefers viewing, what they are interested in, and most importantly keeping up with what is trending.

Being Relevant And Consistent

The content posted has to be relevant and engaging. As an influencer, one has to build relationships with the audience. If the content posted is not engaging enough, people will perceive the influencer as distant; resulting in the audience becoming weary of the content posted.

Formulate a content strategy for at least a month. Mix up the content types. Some influencers mix up their personal life in the content strategy. Whichever strategy is picked, ensure that it is broad enough for future brand collaborations! 

Few social media platforms have algorithms that give preference to accounts that post regularly. The frequency of posting depends on the platform. Twitter requires a high posting rate to be visible while a post once a week is enough on platforms like Facebook and Youtube. However, the time and day that one decides to post should remain consistent. Posting on a certain day at a particular time, there is a chance that the post will get higher engagement.
