In the world of social media, it takes more than just talent to be successful. It takes hard work, dedication, and a whole lot of hustle.
Ever wonder how some people make a career out of being an influencer? Katanna Clarke is a content creator and comedian who has parlayed her online presence into a successful career. We sat down with Katanna to get her insights on what it takes to be an influencer.
Katanna got her start by creating funny videos that she would post on social media. She quickly gained a following of 348.6K people on Tiktok who enjoyed her content and looked forward to her next post. From there, Katanna was able to land not just the sponsorships and brand deals, but also some acting gigs like her role in the TV show, Paranormal Apprentice.
So, what does it take to be a successful influencer? Here are some tips from Katanna Clarke:
“First and foremost, you have to love what you do. If you’re not passionate about your content, it will show. Also, don’t be afraid to put yourself out there and take risks. The more you put yourself out there, the more likely you are to find success.”
“My tip for being a content creator is to think outside the box, don’t be scared to do things that you have never been done before. Comedy is about taking a thought to a place nobody has taken it to. The goal isn’t to make the person laugh right away. It’s to make them uncomfortable enough with the fact that you did.”
“And finally, always remember that it’s not just about the numbers. It’s about the quality of your content and the connection you make with your audience. If you focus on those things, the numbers will take care of themselves.”
