Nowadays it seems like every man and his dog wants to be a "Social Media Influencer"

What is a social media influencer?

In simple terms it's someone who has a large social media following who can have an influence on their audience's behaviour.

It's really a re-hash of the standard brand advocate or celebrity endorsement type of marketing.

Why become an influencer?

In the beginning the average influencer didn't even know they carried such influence to make people buy stuff. It was only when internet marketers got in on the act things started to change.
These marketers are always looking to get the most bang for their buck.

They discovered that by asking someone who had a large social media following to give them or their product a mention they would get not only traffic but also SALES. And so influencers were born.

In the early days you could spend as little as 10 - 20 dollars for a shoutout on instagram. Now the influencers are beginning to find their own real worth and prices are rising.

So how do you become a social media influencer?

It's not as difficult as some would like you to believe, at the same time there is a learning curve to overcome. Combined with the right mindset you'll be an influencer in no time.
