Sis! I know you will become an influencer pretty soon, oh yes, I know so.
I see you, I see your efforts, I see all the wonderful content you create for the world to see.
Each time I see your content, they grab my attention, your content is so CONTAGIOUS. I like it!
I know you can’t wait to start enjoying what you THINK I and my colleagues are enjoying. You see all the good things that come our way and you can’t just wait.
For some of us (influencers), we get paid to show up physically at premium business events.
A few of us, especially the A list of us, get paid what they call “appearance fee” to show up in certain places.
The life of an influencer is so sweet. Anything you market will sell, anything you touch automatically turns to gold.
People KNOW, LIKE, TRUST, and RESPECT us.
Oh what a life!!!!
If I decide to market burger & smoothie now, it will sell. As you already know, I’m selling Aku on my page. It’s selling!!!
Do you know why?
I’m an INFLUENCER!!!
If people like us attend any event, we are always the centre of attraction in the event.
We are INFLUENCERS, yes that’s the truth, people want to associate with our brand using the law of association.
In all of these shiny and glowing things you see.
There are grey areas that aren’t talked about on social media.
There are things we go through that you might never know until we tell you.
What are they?
I chose to call them “GREY AREAS OF BEING INFLUENTIAL ON SOCIAL MEDIA.”
1. You Will Attract Lots of Haters:
Just be ready for it, they will come, and nothing will stop them from coming. As you plan and map your way to becoming Influential, also prepare for the HATERS.
2. Be Ready To Be Negatively Criticised:
You would think because you’re too good, helping people on social for free. Don’t worry, get ready for the heavy negative critics because as you rise they will rise with you.
3. Be Guarded Against Fake People:
People that claim they love you and call themselves your friends. Get ready! They will come!!!
They will sing your praises to your face, but backstab you without empathy.
4. Be Ready To Always Be Misunderstood & Tamed Controversial:
This one will be the first set of gba gbos you will get. It will come in promax levels. Get ready!!! It will come.
5. You Will Be Overwhelmed & Be Emotional Down Most Times:
When you see people you love and you’re trying to help turn their back at you, it will get to you, trust me it will. Start preparing for this.
6. People Will Have Unrealistic Expectations Towards Your Brand:
You’re not the messiah of the world, but people will expect you to be, don’t feel bad, just do what you can do and MOVE ON.
I have so much to say about this, but let me stop here.
As much as you love being Influential, also prepare for these grey areas.
I can’t wait to see you Dominate, Influence, and Win on this space.
