Hands up if you keep trying to grow your blog and social following, but never seem to make any real progress.
You may think you started too late, the market is too saturated or you’re not lucky enough.
That’s simply not true.
Pay attention to how others succeeded
Travel/lifestyle blogger Alex Serruys started blogging and influencing just a year ago and has already amassed a following of over 30,000 on Instagram. She works regularly with brands, such as New Look, Guess, and Toni and Guy, and has quit her job and become a full-time influencer/blogger – in just one year.
Fashion blogger Lauren Black launched her blog in 2017. She has built up a following of almost 60,000 on Instagram alone, and now works with numerous brands, such as Ralph Lauren, Ted Baker and Ugg.
Then there’s Em Sheldon. The award-winning fashion, travel and lifestyle blogger has won InStyle Magazine’s top travel and lifestyle blogger award and snagged Cosmopolitan Magazine’s top newcomer award. She has an audience of over 200,000 followers across her social channels and a blog audience that exceeds 150,000 hits each month.
Food blogger Pixie Turner set up her award-winning blog while training to be a nutritionist. Since launching her blog, she has gone on to amass an audience of over 120,000 followers on Instagram alone and has secured not one, but two, book deals.
