As an influencer, you have to be likable. Take the time required to build a positive

reputation for yourself. Do the same if you are endorsing a brand. You have to take

care not to alienate segments of your audience, whatever the media.


Have Passion


Whatever the industry you are in, developing a passion for the vertical is imperative.

Staying updated about the latest trends, having the curiosity to know more, and

having adequate confidence to speak with knowledge displays your passion. Any

influencer with passion will take the time to learn, and this will be true of you as well.
