What The "Influencer" Means In "Influencer Jumpstart"

foundations Jun 16, 2022


Many people have been wondering what being an influencer is all about.

It's not just about creating content on social media.

Actually, it never was.

If you go back to the root of the word, it means someone who changes things.

What we did at our company is take that meaning and made sure to light the spark.

We want to change things for the better and empower others to do so as well.

So whether you're an accountant, a lawyer, a marketer or a business owner, it doesn't matter.

As long as your ambition is to move people to create a better world for each other, I and Influencer Jumpstart are on your side.

Let's agree on the definition so that we can move on to actually making things happen for each other.

These Things Are Connected

foundations Jun 09, 2022


Whether you’re just starting out or have been in business for a while, you know your brand means everything.

It starts with who, but also the why and the how.

And all these things are connected.

Not only that, these things reflect in your business and your life on a secular level.

One thing leads to the next, but together they are so much more powerful.

Why You Need To Have Empathy For Your Fans

foundations Jun 02, 2022


When making content, you obviously need to have your audience in mind.

I'll explain how to take it to the next level by using empathy in this post.

With empathy, you can tap into the minds of your fans and deliver on a higher level.

You can do this by understanding three things:

1. Why they are watching

2. Where they are coming from

3. What is going on in their lives while watching

Using these three pieces of information, you can make sure you're not only delivering content that people want, but you're also keeping your brand intact as it will register as one that understands its audience.

I talk about this in more depth in the video.

Growing A Brand Is A Balancing Act

foundations May 19, 2022

People think that the best way to grow a brand is to focus on one thing at a time until everything fits.

Although that may seem to make sense because what you focus on grows, it doesn't always apply to every situation.

The truth is, you need to make sure that what you're focusing on is not causing too much damage to other areas of your life.

For example, working long hours to make ends meet may cause a problem in your health, like consequences from lack of sleep.

That's why, when organizing yourself, it's important to have a balance.

Only then can you make sure that the sacrifice you are making, isn't actually causing more trouble than you can handle.

Sure, we make choices. But these choices need to work together with your other choices. Otherwise, you're really just asking for unnecessary complications.

Creating Alignment In Your Business

foundations May 12, 2022


Whether you're growing a personal brand or another type of business the most important thing is alignment:

Are you able to align your brand messaging with what your brand is all about, and is your business operating in alignment with all of that?

If you're able to do these things correctly, then it'll make sense for your audience to become buyers, and vice-versa.

The Importance Of Individuality As An Influencer

foundations Apr 14, 2022


Becoming your own brand can be a tedious process.

But that doesn't mean that there aren't any shortcuts.

One of these shortcuts is to understand individuality.

If you're able to show up as an individual, as opposed to a copycat, you're more likely to capture your audience's attention.

We're tired of the same old song playing over and over.

But as an individual, you're able to embrace your niche and thrive, spreading your message wildly and with honesty.

This is what people are waiting for.

How To Find Your Next Influencer Opportunity

foundations Mar 31, 2022


Opportunity knocks, but not always.

Sometimes, something may look like an opportunity when it really isn't.

And making a move on something that is not an opportunity can hurt both your brand and business, and it's not pretty.

To make sure you're never making that mistake, let me share something with you.

It's an easy way to make sure your perspective stays stellar when it comes to making the right decisions day in and day out.

What I want you to pay attention to is the market.

It will tell you how things are but also where you fit within the market itself.

By taking a birds-eye-view of the market, you'll be able to see the opportunities that present themselves.

For some reason, people associate value with rarity, even if it has to do with actions.

For example, would you value more a diamond or a street rock? 

We value the diamond more because it's rare.

And, in the same way, people seem to value rare actions more than common ones as well.

A word...
