Are you facing a dilemma where your heart wants to pursue a career as an Influencer, but your mind is asking you to focus on studies or a job for financial security? You are not alone! In this blog, we will explore the possibilities of Influencing as a full-time career path and whether it can provide financial stability.
Can Influencing become a full-time career path and provide financial stability?
Before answering this question, let's take a look at some data that shows the popularity and growth of influencer marketing. According to recent studies, 93% of marketers use influencer marketing as part of their marketing strategy. Additionally, 46% of social media users have purchased products promoted by influencers, and 82% of consumer traffic in 2022 has come from videos. Furthermore, around 42% of marketers base the success of influencer campaigns on sales and conversions.
But can becoming an Influencer provide financial stability? The answer is yes! Even the smallest of influencers with a loyal following of just thousands can earn a substantial amount to live a standard life. In fact, there is no upper limit for an influencer's earnings.
Still not convinced? Let me share my personal experience. I quit my high-paying corporate job after one year of starting my YouTube journey because I started earning more from YouTube than from my job itself. Since then, I have become a full-time influencer, and my earnings have increased fivefold. It opened up multiple revenue streams for me, which I am going to teach in my upcoming Flagship Program- YouTubeneur Foundational Accelerator.
Can you become an influencer while you are studying or stuck in a job?
Yes, you can! When I started as an Influencer, I was stuck in a 9 to 5 corporate job in a leadership position as a Business Consultant. Initially, I just used to do a live stream on YouTube after coming back from the office. It acted as my stress buster, too, as I was living my passion. Anyone can become an Influencer no matter what you are doing right now. You can start the journey from wherever you are- whether you are a student or stuck in a job or in any kind of work. All you need is to use your leisure time to create content.
What should be the very first step in this journey?
Once you have decided to start the journey to become an Influencer, the first step is to identify your niche. Your niche is essentially your area of expertise and the focus of your content. It's important to note that to have a strong influence, you need to be a pro in a specific area rather than a jack-of-all-trades. This is why identifying and understanding your niche is key for long-term success. Take the time to choose your niche carefully, and ensure that you have a deep understanding of it before moving forward with your influencer journey.
