How to Stand Out As An Influencer

From fashion, travel, food, fitness and more, social media marketing is one of the most prominent marketing strategies today. As the number of influencers continues to grow, the social media market becomes wider and thus, creates more competition. With that being said, it’s important to understand the various ways you can stand out.

Let’s dive in!


No matter what career you’re in, being true to yourself is always most important. As an influencer who is often sharing opinions, your audience acknowledges and appreciates honesty and transparency. By expressing your authentic self, it allows your audience to relate to you on a deeper level, which will ultimately help grow your following and boost engagement.


With Instagram’s algorithm changing quite often, it’s important to produce content on a consistent basis. Social media marketing is never a “set it and forget it” type of strategy. It’s crucial to post regularly in order to grow your audience. Create a schedule for yourself so that your content is organized in advance, which also leaves you with more time to produce new content.

3.Visual Appeal

It’s one thing to produce content, but it’s another to create content that is visually appealing. When someone lands on your profile, the first thing they see is your feed. Your feed should be a visual representation of who you are and it should give others an idea of what they can expect to receive from your content. What value do you offer to your audience? Whether that’s makeup tutorials, travel tips or healthy recipes, your feed should have an aesthetic that appeals to your desired audience and is a reflection of who you are.

4.Ensure Profile Settings Are In Place

As a growing influencer, brands or agencies may want to reach out to you for potential collaborations. It’s important that your profile contains all the relevant information to make the outreach process run smoothly. Some helpful tips include:

  • Ensuring your account is set to a business profile
  • Including your email in your bio
  • Including your phone number in your bio
  • Including your location so that brands and agencies can see where you’re from

5.Do Your Research

As an influencer, it’s important to stay up to date on news and trends within your industry. Understand what type of content is going viral and how you can incorporate those elements in your photos or videos. Staying relevant and producing fresh, unique content is what will help distinguish you from others in your field.
