How To Become An Influencer By Giving Away Money When You Have No Money or Influence
The term influencer is tossed around a lot online and the definition changes quite easily when you throw in social media.
But it is really just anyone has influence over the thoughts and actions of others. And it doesn't take much. The value of any influencer isn't in their number of followers but in engagement of those followers. And, over the last decade or so influencers have been cycled in and out and don't always maintain said influence.
However, that is neither here nor there. Nowadays everyone has some type of broadcast network and for our purposes, that is what's important.
On platforms like steem and hive we all know that the influencers were the first ones in who took the advantage of the opportunities before them to create big bags. They aren't all influencers per se, but they all have quite a bit of power in one way or another.
The main way they maintain and grow their influence is by giving out money (rewards). It's really that simple. It doesn't really matter what they say or do. If they give out rewards they become the influencers on that platform.
Thankfully, the "influencers" on @leofinance are very versed in the idea of growing an entire ecosystem from their share of the rewards and it's working out great. It was certainly not that way on steemit.
But, they can't do it forever and the new influencers they help create with their rewards, kind of like a burgeoning middle class, will have to take the reigns and keep the machine rolling. Basically, the pay it forward method.
How To Be An Influencer With No Money!
But let's say you don't have the support of whales to help you earn and contribute rewards to the community. What if you are starting from scratch?
How do you give away money to build your network if you don't have any money? While I'd love to be a hive/Leo whale, it's just to late for that. I have very little influence here but I'm paying it forward the best I can.
But I am becoming an influencer in a strange new world. Noise.cash. I've written about it before and several other lions have done so as well.
It is basically a brand new microblogging platform that air drops you pennies worth of bitcoin cash to tip other microbloggers. I thought it was so stupid!
But I went because we are going to launch a microblogging platform in the Leofinance ecosystem soon and I wanted to market us there. But, I had no idea I could become an influencer!
Yeah, I'd say Im an influencer there. Why? Because I give out all my money. The least you can keep is 20% of what the admin gives you. (think curation rewards) And people like when I give them money! The follow me and interact with what I say!
The other Leos on Noise are even more influential. Everyone is giving out money and building networks. And the networks seem to be real and engaging.
I'm starting to sense that the Noise admin is airdropping us a little more BCH than the others because we have an active community and we are focused on our content.
This is not some pitch to get you on Noise so I can give you money because the money is tiny. In fact, it's weird that people are going so crazy of a penny or two but there is a lot of psychology. It reminds me of when I lived in New Orleans and people practically killed each other to catch a strand of worthless beads.
You just get lost in it. There's no explaining it lol. But the point is that Leos are building networks in the hundreds and will be "shilling" our microblogging program when it starts. And, it cost us nothing to build that influence (just time)
There is NO doubt the whatever the Leofinance Microblogging platform is, it will be way more lucrative and appealing than noise.cash. The people in our networks will be coming over in droves. Especially when they see the support their posts get from the same people they are building relationships with on Noise.
So if you find yourself having a hard time finding your voice on Twitter, Instagram, TikTok, Reddit, Youtube, Pinterest, Stumbleupon, Steemit, Medium, Tumblr, Hive, Snapchat, Linkedin, or even LeoFinance, spend some time at Noise building your network and it will pay off for you.
You won't make much money but you will gain a lot of influence
