Blogging and Influencer Marketing
The popularity of social media platforms like Instagram, Twitter, Facebook is increasing day by day. The reason behind it is “Influencer marketing”. Yes, you heard about it many times but do not recognize the power of being an influencer. Here I will share my experience of being a blogger and influencer and raising the demand for influencers in the digital world.
My Blogging Journey
When I started blogging, my only purpose was to stay updated with the latest technology and trends and express my views on them. That might be a reason, I still continued my blogging. I am a tech-savvy guy, so without any doubt, I go with the technology niche. It’s my interest and passion for technology, I continue to post on it without expecting any outcome. Today content creation has become a huge industry and has a big market space. By the time I realize that I can monetize my blog and can earn a decent amount from it. But I never thought that it’s a long journey to become a high-paid blogger and you have to be super consistent through the journey.
People are starting blogging today and expecting overnight success from it. They also try for shortcuts to get quick results from it. But my personal advice to all of you is don’t take shortcuts and don’t go with popular topics for the sake of quick popularity. Find out your interest and start writing about it. It takes time to get results but trust me it works!
