There are two different types of Influencers. We have those that rose to fame viral, and those that built their career from one very small audience. Whatever your type as an Influencer, there is a constant denominator. It is the desire to maintain the influence, to reach more ─ and as an influencer, to influence more.
With the digital arena now saturated with tons of influencers, taking the lead is almost a luxury for only a few lucky individuals. But, you should know that these “lucky” influencers are not necessarily just “lucky.” More than the hard work and talent they have, they also know the secret of influencing more with less. This secret is Outsourcing.
Outsourcing is the Way to Working Smart
You don’t have to do everything in driving out your career and reaching your goals. As an Influencer, your focus should be on engaging your audience. You can do this by strategizing, creating regular content, expanding, and collaborating.
Indeed, this does sound like a lot of work and it is. It is impractical to do everything by yourself. This risks your content quality and this might also risk everything you worked hard for.
Fortunately, you can always outsource tasks and have Virtual Assistants take over. Outsourcing is when you hire people on board to help you not do things alone.
How? See below.
Strategize with a Social Media Manager
You already know that being an influencer takes more than content-making. This also includes rigorous planning, branding, scheduling, and even constant engaging. To better market your brand, the key is to maximize all the available digital platforms. These sites require constant activity to maintain engagement and to secure branding.
Again, you don’t have to do all these. A Social Media Manager can definitely help lift these burdens off your shoulders.
With the expertise on the most effective media strategies, an SMM knows how to execute on a platform. Also, he or she can help you understand your audience and know what they want as consumers of your content. From assessing your engagements, an SMM can know exactly how to respond and turn things your way.
Do not underestimate the power of Emails. Email is a professional line of communication to weed off nuisance and filter in only the opportunities. As content-making is your focus, an hour or two working on your email can eat away precious time that you could have used to fine-tune your content.
More so, if you are not confident with your writing skills, a Virtual Assistant can also help. With fluency in English Communication, a VA can track, organize, and competently respond to the mass of emails you receive. This, without losing your brand and while also ensuring more opportunities for you.
Another thing that a VA can do is Email Marketing. Also experts in generating leads, VA can connect you with tons of potential sponsors, followers, and partners. If you have a plan to have a subscription email for your followers, a Virtual Assistant is a perfect partner for that as well.
One known key to expanding your engagement is reaching out to like-minded individuals about a collaboration. This is an effective way of expanding to a new audience and doubling your former figure.
For this, you do not need to do all the work. A Virtual Assistant can work on the research ( find the best person or brand for you to partner with), proposal, communications, and dealings. This speaks less work for you and more time to concentrate on improving your content.
You’re heading to a rough and losing competition if you decide to miss on an opportunity to have a pool of experts to back you up. But, should you make the right decision and finally have VAs to help you, Digital Offsider is the way to go.
