Choose your forte
There have been people who think posting reels on about just anything can make you a social media influencer. This is not true; in order to become a social media influencer you need to choose your forte or niche. Things that are your differentiator and would help you mask views instantly. Even popular television stars and actors also choose a particular niche to promote on Instagram. It could be fashion, makeup, cooking anything. Like Shilpa Shetty’s fitness channel or Katrina Kaif’s makeup tutorials. Choose a particular field of interest and then draft videos for that avidly put up content related to this.
Post engaging content
People want something totally new rather than those same old content or average videos. You need to post engaging content that allows users to click on your profile and follow you. Try out new things every week to hook your users. Post not only on reels but also on posts, stories and IGTV Videos. Use different filters and own audios to interest users.
If you have a handsome amount of followers or you are running a business you can contact social media influencers and collaborate with them. This helps you come into the spotlight and grab their followers as well. People blindly trust social media influencers, collaborating with them creating content that is unique and stand out helps you gain the trust of your audience and mask more followers.
Plan your content
In order to become a successful social media influencer, you need to study your audience in great depth. Analyse who you target audience is, and draft content that would interest them. Look at the active hours, when your audience is online and post content on these hours. Post varied content at different hours for 4 weeks, then analyse which hour was the best for you to post and what kind of content brought you maximum views. Instagram users can also use Instazoom tool to schedule posting time for content. Just upload the content and set the timing for it.
Engage with your target audience
The most vital step is to engage with your audience in order to retain and increase your following and make people your dedicated supporters; you need to have a good interaction with them. Host live sessions, talk to them in DM and comments and you can even host give-aways and ask people to follow you and post about you to win an exciting hamper. All this helps you gain more followers and increases your popularity.
