🆕 Modern influencer guidelines
Understand that your role is evolving: In addition to creating content, you're also expected to perform in various other capacities, such as lobbying, acting, and beyond. This is a new era of influencer culture, where a single viral video isn't enough to secure long-term success.
Value authenticity: The new generation of users value authenticity and are media-literate. Your audience can see through inauthentic content or forced sales pitches. As such, you should strive to maintain an authentic voice and narrative in your content.
Understand your audience: Your followers want to see content that genuinely interests them, not just popular or trending topics. Make sure you understand what your audience wants and tailor your content to match their interests and needs.
Partner with brands wisely: Successful influencer-brand partnerships are those that align well with your voice, mission, and audience. Be selective in your brand partnerships, ensuring they align with your values and the interests of your audience.
Embrace creative freedom: Don't just stick to the script given by brands. Use your understanding of your audience to create content that resonates with them and drives conversions. You know your audience best, use that to your advantage.
Prepare for power shifts: Recognize the change in power dynamics. Your followers now have more control over the content they consume, and their preferences heavily influence the algorithm. Pay attention to their behavior and cater to your content accordingly.
Expand your skills: In the modern digital world, being a multifaceted influencer can set you apart. Whether it's writing, performing, entertaining, or any other skill, keep learning and diversifying your abilities.
👎 Common misconceptions
There are certain behaviors and beliefs that could potentially hamper their success. These may include:
Believing numbers are everything: While followers, likes, and views are important, they aren't everything. The quality of your engagement and the loyalty of your followers can be much more valuable than just the numbers.
Thinking any publicity is good publicity: Some influencers may fall into the trap of believing that any attention, even negative, is good for their visibility. This isn't always true and could damage their reputation in the long run.
Assuming success is overnight: Success in social media influencing usually takes time and consistent effort. It's a myth that one viral post will establish you as an influencer.
Underestimating the importance of authenticity: Some influencers might think that copying successful content creators' styles or endorsing products they don't believe in will lead to success. In fact, authenticity is crucial in building a loyal and engaged following.
Believing that more sponsored content equals success: Too much-sponsored content can make an influencer's feed look more like an advertisement platform, which can turn off followers. Striking a balance is crucial.
Thinking you can do it without a strategy: Even though social media might seem casual, successful influencing requires a well-thought-out strategy, including content planning, branding, and audience engagement.
