8 Dynamic Ways to Become a Powerful Influencer

Published

One of the best ways to get noticed and be heard is to become an influencer. When you’re an influencer, you are looked up to, respected, and followed for advice and support. While there are many methods out there that you could use, here are some that many influencers are using on a regular basis.

Here are the 8 ways to becoming a powerful influencer:

1. Affect The Masses

If you want to become an influencer, you’ll need to be able to influence people at a large scale. Becoming an influencer in your industry can be simple if you do it right. Some of the ways you can do this is by becoming a speaker, learning skill sets that will drive more people to you, and going to local meetup groups and sharing your knowledge.

2. Think Bigger

Thinking bigger helps you reach your goals quicker. That doesn’t mean that you set unrealistic goals like going to Mars tomorrow. You should set realistic goals that are attainable and help push you in the right direction. Keeping a to-do list or a daily checklist will help you set bigger goals for the long term, and what you can do daily to accomplish them.

3. Create Opportunities

One of the most important things you can do as an influencer is to create opportunities for others. People are looking to learn and grow, and when you produce an opportunity that will help them achieve massive success in a short amount of time, they will stay with you till the end. Learn what others are looking for and what you can add to their lives to become successful.

“One of the most powerful networking practices is to provide immediate value to a new connection. This means the moment you identify a way to help someone, take action.” – Lewis Howes

4. Follow The Trends

Success leaves a trail. If you want to be a successful influencer, look at what is already working in the moment. Find out how people are becoming influencers in their niche and follow suit, but make sure not to copy them. Find out what successful influencers are doing right now, find out what you can do to add more value and solutions, and model their success.

5. Apply What You’re Learning

When you learn something you should be applying it immediately. Don’t read a book just to read a book. Instead, read or watch something that applies to you right now that will help you reach the next level. Doing this will keep you taking action and getting closer to your goals every single day.

6. Follow Systems

Humans fail. Systems don’t. The reason why influencers are successful is that they understand that people make mistakes. If you can help systematize the process and create methods by which things should be done, your success rate at becoming an influencer will increase.

7. Help Others More Than Yourself

It’s like Zig Ziglar’s saying, “You will get all you want in life, if you help enough other people get what they want.” When you can help others with their problems, dreams, and obstacles, you will receive the same therapy. Learn the proper skill sets that others are struggling with so that you can have an impact on their lives.

“No one has ever become poor by giving.” – Anne Frank

8. Show Up Everyday

One thing that a lot of people forget is that consistency builds trust. Trust at the end of the day is the most important factor in everything you do. The more consistent you can be, the more trust people have in you which leads to becoming a powerful influencer.

There are many benefits in becoming an influencer. Are you ready to start? Are you ready to become the person you’d like to be? You’ll be surprised at how many of these tips are being used by influencers every single day.

Why am I so unlucky?” Are your conversations with yourself along these lines? Do you find yourself reprimanding yourself every time you make a mistake or wallowing in self-pity? (more…)

How many times have we wished to be in the shoes of a billionaire? People often daydream of having a ten digit bank account, and what they’d be doing with it. In an instant, we’d picture luxury yachts, extravagant sports cars, the finest wine and jewellery, and a whole lot of things which are difficult to pronounce. It is truly difficult to separate wealth and luxury. (more…)

Do you watch documentaries on lions? If yes, then you must have seen that they dominate their territory and are apex predators. Lions are among the strongest animals in the world, and no one dares to confront or challenge them. They are called ‘kings’ because they have a touch of royalty in everything they do. From eating habits where 20-25 royal members dine at the same to conquering huge lands. A lion always has a bold attitude and lives like a true ruler. (more…)

The Guide to Staying Motivated While Working Alone

Working alone at home might sound like a nightmare to some, but as a fully signed up introvert, working alone at home is an absolute dream. No energy-draining small talk, no noisy distractions, just peace and quiet to complete deep and focused work. Well not quite. Working alone at home has more challenges than you might expect. Boredom, lack of focus and lack of motivation to name a few.

When you start working for yourself, you quickly realise that one of the biggest problems you face isn’t the job itself. Maintaining your motivation poses a potentially huge difficulty. Much of that difficulty stems from working alone, rather than in a traditional office setting. There is also the challenge of staying focused on the task at hand. With no boss or supervisor looking over your shoulder, social media can distract or cat videos interrupt you.

But the greatest problem by far is a simple lack of motivation. There doesn’t seem to be a pressing need to finish this project right now, making it far too easy to put it off until later. Left unchecked, a lack of motivation can cripple the work you are trying to accomplish. Over the past few years I’ve developed a few go-to tactics to improve my lone working motivation.

Here are some of the tools I’ve used to stay motivated and on-task.

These first few tips focus on using different tweaks in your personal work schedule to provide some variety and maintain your focus.

1. Include short breaks

My eye doctor once told me that for every 20 minutes of staring at a computer screen, you should look away and focus on something across the room for 20 seconds. This gives your eyes a chance to reset. Do something similar with the rest of your body; don’t just look across the room, walk, jog, or run across the room. Give your body a break, and try to reset your thoughts. If you don’t have the discipline to take regular breaks, use an app to remind you.

2. Block out an afternoon for social activities and networking

Set aside one afternoon a week for your social life. Friday afternoon works best for me. If you feel guilty about not working, think of it as a chance to network. Either way, be sure to spend this section of time with other people. Socialise and network.

3. View your personal schedule as your work schedule

A 9-to-5 job requires getting up every morning, preparing for the day, leaving the house, and commuting to your workplace. In other words, it requires going to work. You want to recreate the same rhythm at home. You may not actually need to leave your house in order to work, but try to stick with the schedule. Filling the old job timeslot with your new work helps to keep you motivated – you can’t clock out early!

These next few tips are little things you can do to trick yourself into staying focused!

1. Music

This tip may sound cliché, but try listening to an upbeat song loudly whenever you feel unmotivated. It’s a simple trick, but a surprisingly effective one!

2. Have somewhere else to work for a change of scenery

When procrastination sets in, sometimes a quick change of scenery is all you need. If you work at home, going to your favourite café can be a huge help. Other freelancers I know have even gone so far as to hire office space outside the home, and rotate between the two to help stay on-task.

3. Love what you do

This is arguably the most critical point on the whole list. If you don’t love what you do, it will be hard to keep yourself motivated – particularly long-term. Sure, you may be able to push on through sheer force of will for a while, but sooner or later you’ll lose motivation entirely. Do something you genuinely enjoy, and you’ll find it much easier to stick with it for the long haul.

These last few tips are Industry-related!

1. Make sure you have fun projects

Not all of your work projects will be fun, but fight to make at least a couple of them fun. These might even be personal side projects, not particularly related to your main job. Or they might be in the same general field, but not your specific focus.

2. Attend industry events a couple of times a year

Nearly every imaginable industry has an organising body of some kind. Find the local branch, and use it to keep tabs on industry-related events. Attend some seminars, network, and maybe even glean some new tips and tricks from industry insiders.

3. Schedule at least one call a week to learn something within your industry

View this as an opportunity for personal development. At least once a week, try to learn something new about your industry. For me, this might mean calling a new tool provider to demonstrate their gadgets. Whatever your industry, try to expand your horizons a little bit every week. You’ll learn new methods and make new connections at the same time.

These tips worked for me, hopefully, some of them will help you out as well. Above all, strive to enjoy what you do, stick to a “work schedule,” and look for opportunities for constant self-improvement. With those ideas in mind, you’ll find staying motivated much easier to do alone or in a group!
