Step-by-step Guide to Getting Famous on Social Media
That one viral video, one post that reaches millions, one popular tweet – are you waiting for that one chance to be celebrated on social media? Getting famous on social media is what most of us dream of so our social media accounts look glamorous with millions of followers.
The reality, however, is much different. With such splendid posts shared by people worldwide, it could be rather hard to get famous on social media. Despite posting several photos and videos on many platforms, you could be unseen and unheard. So, in this article, let’s uncover some steps and methods to quickly getting famous on social media.
Step 1: Pick your Talent
If you’re genuinely talented, trust me, social media is made for you. You can be talented in literally anything: dancing, singing, carpeting, sewing, coding, swinging, just anything will work.
The best example is Dr. Mike who became the sexiest doctor of Instagram by simply posting his journey through medicine on Instagram. He has more than 3.3 million followers on Instagram now and travels worldwide with Hollywood celebrities. Look at his initial photos and videos to take inspiration from how he started.
Step 2: Create Exceptional Video Content
Once you’ve finalized your talent or niche, the next step would be to create viral-worthy videos. The reason I’m stressing on creating videos is that video content outperforms all other types of content on social media.
Videos that are funny or informative are shared more on social media than mundane videos. If you’re a chef, then create some recipe videos, if you’re an artist, then share time-lapse art videos. You can be creative with your videos at the same time make them engaging and valuable for your audience.
Remember that if you want your video to go viral or be shared by thousands of others, then it has to be worth sharing.
Step 3: Post Regularly and Don’t give up too soon
Let me say it loud, your first post might not make you viral. There are only one-in-a-million people who get famous on social media with a single post. Most of the times, getting famous involves posting every day regularly until your content starts gaining attention.
Step 4: Monitor how your Posts are performing
If you don’t seem to be getting famous despite sending out several posts, then you need to check if your posts are reaching any audience or not. Each social media platform has in-built analytics that you can use to see how your posts are performing. If your posts are performing well with time and your reach is increasing, then you need to keep posting to reach a bigger audience.
Step 5: Keep Challenging Yourself
The best part about the famous ones on social media is that they keep getting better. They keep working on their content, improving their style and information, thus retaining their audience. Hence, if you’re getting social media famous or you’re on your way, then you need to keep working harder and keep creating better content.
