A lot of influencers use social media for business. They gain profit by posting videos with an advertisement and endorsing products. A lot of people want to follow their footsteps since they look at it as an easy job when it actually is not. Although social media can be a way to gain money, it can also be stressful and depressing because of bashers and hateful comments about your content. Some people who are new in this industry and are faced with an issue causing hateful comments are easily depressed which is why some influencers take a break to clear their thoughts and to pass through the issue.
Being recognized by an influencer is not an easy job. A lot of followers comment on their videos and blogs, trying to gain their attention, which can be difficult if we’re talking about 500 thousand followers on social media. If you are committed to getting noticed, you can do the following, and maybe you’d get mentioned by them.
Follow them all social media platforms
If you want to be noticed, you should prove you are aware and updated on their post. Right now, twitter seemed like the focus of most influencers today since it is easy to use.
If they believe that their audience only focuses on one social media platform, following them on other platforms like Pinterest, Reddit, Snapchat, and etc. can gain their interest in you. But, try not to be on the stalker side since it might creep them out and end up blocking you.
Share their content
Turn on your notifications so whenever an influencer post, their blogs they will find you as one of the persons who shared their content first and that might catch their attention and share your blogs as well.
Leave a comment
A lot of influencers are fond of reading comments from their audience, and they also respond to some comments. If you make this a habit, you’ll quickly get noticed and thanked for supporting them. Also, remember to use a clear photo and name in your account so they can recognize you on other social media platforms.
Lead a discussion
If you share their contents on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, or any other social media platforms, you need to leave a great comment or a question that can lead to a discussion. Some of you have done this and are not noticed by influencers because it’s not that much worth notifying.
Posting a comment like, “I like your new post” or “Great post” won’t be noticed because a lot of people post the same comment and you’ll only get a like for the comment.
Write a blog about them
Content creators can’t resist blogs where they are featured as the main topic. Writing a blog about them can be a big leap on being noticed, and one way to reach out to them is by providing them a link and sharing your blog posts online.
Give something valuable
If you have a business and you target influencers to review your product, give them a free sample or a trial version. It would be great if the product you offer to them are relatable to their work and a product worth interesting to test out.
Showing them that your product is for exclusive people will add to their enthusiasm.
Ask them for partnership
It may be a lot to ask, but one of the ways to gain their attention is by asking them directly if they want to partner with you in creating contents. If both of you have the same ideas, you can try working with them like, making a poll for your research and work together through it.
It would gain their attention if what you’re talking about is related to their niche. If you get their attention, you can slowly divert the topic in a more personal manner.
Personal conversations include their hobbies, family, relationships. Though you should be cautious when discussing private questions with an influencer.
Give a review on their product
If your influencer offers a product or service, you can write a review about it. Leaving a review would be appreciated by them because it means you tried the product and you are satisfied with it, or you have your opinion on how to improve it.
Give them a review about your experience with their product on Yelp and other review sites.
Give them ideas
Emailing and commenting your ideas to them may reach their interest to know more about your idea. Offer them ideas that you think the audience would love for them to do.
Giving them an idea can be a great way to build a relationship with an influencer. It may take time for them to notice since they have tons of notifications in their way, at least it’s worth the try.
Doing the following will take time. You have to be patient and committed all the way so you can see improvement each day. If you don’t want it to be a hassle, you can turn your notifications on and try doing this as a hobbit. This wouldn’t take much of your time since you can finish this in an hour and do your work for the rest of the day.
