Remember, an influencer is a very knowledgeable person in a niche, whom others are considered an expert, and also a socially friendly individual.
Influencers are open-minded, friendly, readers, Independent, consistent “coherent”, problem solvers, creative, big vision, etc.
Each of these attitudes is considered a skill. Some that you have already just need to develop and some you have to learn. Learn the required skill to become an influencer here.
How to become an influencer?
Becoming an influencer is simple, and it could be difficult for others because being an influencer is a lifestyle that someone chooses and stick with it for a whole life.
And you can be an influencer in any area, like real estate, e-commerce, digital marketing, social media, arts, music, photography, stylist, content creators like bloggers or YouTubers, and whatever skill that you may have.
Being an influence is challenging and also very rewarding. For those who know or follow any influencer, it is easy to see what lifestyle they are living, because everything is public.
All influencers start by learning some new skills that allow them to work anywhere, they don’t have to hold a job and money never be a problem.
Have you ever heard that? Time money is money! Let me tell you this, in our world time is more valuable than money.
Also, they say there are only 24 hours in a day. That also is a lie, an influencer’s day is longer than 24 hours.
So, let me explain this before I get stone, let’s say you have 8hr to accomplish a task but you will get paid $800! And you call John and pay him $400 to complete the task for you in 8hr, and Joseph also got paid the other $400 for 8 hours of work.
There’s a little math there, but to be a good influencer you have to know your numbers. Let’s go back to the math. Everyone has 8 hours to work, but my 8 hours might be worth more than yours.
Your 8 hours + John 8 hours + Joseph 8 hours =24 hours, and also $800×3=$2400. Did you know that most influencers learned how to leverage other people’s time very well? Learn how to leverage others’ time that way you can have time to enjoy your life.

Top social media influencers
Social media that I know personally or that followed, are not artists, singers, stylists, or rappers. But I do know some, but I don’t follow them, because Instead of letting someone influence me, I better influence others.
The top social media influencers that I follow are, Gary V, Tony Robins, Marcus the affiliate marketing dude, Jeff Learner of Entre Institute, and also he has a CRM software for businesses called Entresoft, and the last one is myself as an influencer because I have almost 1000s videos on the internet.
