Become an Instagram influencer requires hard work.
Why do you think all influencers look good on every shot?
They too put in lots of time to make them work.
Influencers need to make sure their hair looks good with the right makeup (yes, even for men) and dress up in their best outfit at the same time plan in advance what content to deliver next.
Being an influencer, you need to be good in front of the camera anytime, just like a 9 to 5 job (or more) despite with higher flexibility.
The good news is, if you are successful, you will work lesser when passive income flow in.
That is when magic happens (MAGIC = HARD WORK ).
And the most beautiful part is, you get to work with your favourite brand!
I know many people are eager to achieve success.
But please, never buy followers. You can risk your account being closed by Instagram if you ever do this.
I know it is tempting, but don’t do it!
While you spend money to get paid followers, your engagement drop. Fake followers will not engage with you.
Don’t forget, engagement is one important criteria brands are serious about when choosing you.
Success won’t happen overnight.
There is no short cut to at all… no matter what business you are in.
Beneath every successful person, there are bound to have stories to tell. If you don’t believe me, go and ask them.
I bet the first thing they will ever tell you is “hard work”.
So, listen to them and work hard.
Ya… before I forget, remember to opt for an Instagram business account if you are serious to become an influencer.
To know which product is selling (yes, you can use "Instagram Shoppable Post" to sell on Instagram) or how your competitors are doing, you need Instagram Insights.
Individual account won’t be able to show you your account statistics, only business account can.
Also, set yourself a time frame to reply comment. If you leave aside comments for too long, then it is no longer relevant to reply.
Be consistent is the key and building great relationship with your followers is your ultimate goal.
