I fell in love with social media in 2008 when it was not recognised as social media influencing.
It came to me naturally as I had an unusual passion and drive for all things social media.
I talked about my passion and love for social media in my book – Olori Supergal: From Social Misfit to Social Media Hero.
What I’ve realised in my 10 years as a social media influencer is you have to be natural to these things. It is not as difficult as people make it seem.
My journey started with my love for information sharing on Facebook before I joined Twitter, then Instagram and also starting a blog in 2010.
I started getting paid in 2011 for jobs online and being the voice for brands online. Influencing on behalf of brands is so much fun to me and allows me to express my creativity.
Beyond the fulfilment I get from the work I do, I’ve also been able to earn 7 figures as a social media influencer and you can do the same too.
If you’ve been thinking about becoming an influencer, I’ll like you to know that it is a fulfilling and profitable business and yes, you can become a well-known and well-paid influencer too.
The question is, would you do the work it takes to become an influencer?
