Comparing oneself with top social media influencers who are followed by thousands of people might be considerably intimidating. Their lives seem to be so perfect and everything they do seems to be right and admirable. But are they really untouchable or can everyone become like them?
Are Social Media Influencers born special?
Have you ever thought of who social media influencers used to be before they became famous? Most people are not aware that social media influencers were not born as the person that you see. The person you see is the person they have become during their journey that probably took years. There is no sense in comparing yourself with social media influencers and to draw the conclusion that you were just too different to become one too. Keep in mind that social media influencers have constantly developed during their journey until they finally became the person they are right now and that many people admire.
Can everyone become a Social Media Influencer?
Actually, it depends on what you define as “everyone”. If you are thinking of “everyone” in the sense of mankind, the answer is definitely no. However, if “everyone” refers to all people who have the intention to become one and who are consistently providing value to other people´s life by uploading content, I would say it is definitely possible.
How can I give such an answer?
Taking my current 10 YouTube followers and the few views of my blog posts into consideration, it is definitely legit to ask why I think that I am able to give such an answer. At the moment I am writing this article, I am very far away of becoming a social media influencer and there are tens of thousands of people who have more engagement with their content. Nonetheless, I believe that I will become a social media influencer in the future because I am going to consistently upload content and I try to improve my content every day. I could definitely understand, if many people called me “arrogant” or “naive” for writing this because I seem to be one of all these 18 years old teenagers who are dreaming of becoming fame on social media. In fact, this is exactly who I am and what I am doing at the moment.
How do I intend to become a Social Media Influencer?
As mentioned before, I am going to consistently upload content, such as YouTube videos, Blog posts and Instagram pictures. However, this is not enough because there are so many people who are doing the same and have not seen any measurable results yet. In addition to consistent content, I am going to read any comments and listen to any feedback that is given to me so that I can become aware of what my audience thinks about what I am doing. I think this is the foundation in order to improve my content and achieve more engagement and popularity. I am completely aware that this journey might take months without any significant results, but I am ready to go for it. I am already looking forward to rereading this article in 1 or 2 years. Hopefully, I was able to inspire some of you to take up a similar journey.
