I bet each child wants to become famous. The field doesn’t matter that much. As we grow up, we pay attention to the bright adult examples solely. Those are our parents, who are doubtlessly fabulous, and celebrities, of course. We see them all over the TV shows, online and sometimes even offline if we are lucky enough. No wonder they become our role models, and we want to become famous ourselves, once grown up.
Luckily, nowadays this path is way more accessible than it was even ten years ago. We prepared a detailed step-by-step guide on how you can reach your dream and become famous online. Check it out and let us know how it worked for you!
#1. Define Your Niche
Try answering one of the following questions. What is the topic that interests you most? What do you love doing? Which skills do you want to share with other users? What are you good at? What do you like about other online celebrities?
Those questions will give you a hint on where to look for your niche. Or, if lucky, will provide you with the full understanding of the theme of your future story.
#2. Think of Your Ideal Audience
Once you have chosen the main topic you want to promote online, you need to think of people. Who will be interested in such a topic? Which channels those people use to get new information? What do they like? How do they live? Where can you find them?
It is essential for you to know your audience and speak directly to it, using a correct style and form. Otherwise, they won’t find you, and all your trying will be vain.
#3. Choose a Platform
A well-known rule “the more, the better” won’t work here. You need to define precisely what you want to be famous for and choose the platform accordingly. Love photography? Choose Instagram. Is the video your passion? Go to YouTube and Vimeo. Think about writing? Tumblr would be best for you.
A combination of two platforms is also a good idea. Thus you’ll be able to make your content reacher and gain more people to follow you. Still, be careful. Choose same profile pictures and descriptions so that people can recognize you.
#4. Always be there
The awful mistake you can make is to post your content without a plan and with no consistency. Remember, the audience is still expecting to receive brand new and entertaining content. If you don't provide it, somebody else will. Consequently, all your potential followers will go somewhere else to get what they want.
So, plan the frequency, prepare your content in advance, and post it. The more, the better.
#5. Analyse feedback
Your followers most likely will provide you with some kind of feedback. Do not be aggressive, once you get the negative comments or dislikes. Perform an analysis. You might have chosen a wrong strategy, audience or platform.
If you get loads of likes and positive comments, celebrate your victory, but do not forget to give people more of what you do.
Compare the number of feedbacks. There is no urgent need to change anything if negative comments are not significant in amount. Remember. You are not $100. Getting love from each stranger out there is impossible. Be true to yourself and choose the right strategy.
The secret of becoming famous online seems to be easy. Still, in everyday work, you might face a lot of troubles, like bad comments from all types of haters, lack of ideas, the harsh of looking for a right platform, and so on. The main thing is to remain patient and passionate. Love what you do and stay inspired. This won’t be a one day journey, but despite all the obstacles, it would definitely be amazing.
