And, this is where influencers rise with their posts. Here are a few such influencers from Bengaluru who share their experiences and give a few tips.

Thara says, “This is a great time to live in. Social media is such a powerful tool to express your creativity and opinion. The happiness creative freedom gives you is immense. Being your own boss, you have a platform to showcase the content you want to show the world.” She also added by saying, “You get a space to explore your creativity for free which is great.

Be clear how you influence others, even if you have a very small number of followers who look out for your content.”

If the content we create in any form is impacting the users or viewers, we always try curating friendly content. Sometimes, the popular we get, the more responsibilities we take on our shoulders. We need to know about the target audience.”

It’s essential to know the it’s not only for dance and music videos; there are many other categories on social media. Being a lawyer and HR specialist, food never stopped me to review it and I have a huge number of followers on Instagram for the food reviewing videos. This is the reason why I love doing what I do. We must spread the word about putting social media handles to better use.
