Deep down, most of us long to be famous. While most of us live our lives in anonymity, as a celebrity you can have an impact on the world, leave a meaningful legacy behind, and have your name remembered for ages. Sometimes, though, fame isn’t all it’s cracked up to be.

Pick Your Platform

Before you can get famous,you have to choose your platform accordingly. Writers have Medium. Photographers have Instagram. Comedians have Twitter. Video producers have YouTube  and there’s Snapchat if you’re under 18. I didn’t mention Facebook. That was intentional for the following reasons. Facebook is a multi-purpose platform without a focus.

Choose A Theme

Before you can get famous,you have to choose your platform accordingly. Writers have Medium. Photographers have Instagram. Comedians have Twitter. Video producers have YouTube  and there’s Snapchat if you’re under 18. I didn’t mention Facebook. That was intentional for the following reasons. Facebook is a multi-purpose platform without a focus. People are there to see their friend’s vacation photos and stalk celebrities, not read your writing or watch your sketch comedy video.

Show Up Consistently

As you begin your journey to social media fame, determine how often you plan on posting. Just as your audience is expecting a type of content, they’re also expecting a schedule. If you have blog and you post stuff on Mondays, you need to post every Monday as audience will get connected. Determine a realistic plan and stick to it.

Post Quality Content

If you produce irrelevant and useless content people will unfollow you for sure. The audience you’ave spent all this game gearing up for isn’t going to stick with you.

Repeat. Repeat. Repeat

Gaining a following of fans who appreciate your work isn’t easy. You gain your followers through time. Slowly, slowly you’ll find a few more people on the Internet who find value in what you’re writing  which makes the entire creative process worth it.

Narrow down your choices and choose something to pursue

You can narrow down all your choices. Think of your goals and decide if they are realistic. Write down all of the things that you’d consider doing and weigh the positives and the negatives. Once you’ve narrowed it down, choose something to pursue and start creating a strategy. Estimate the probability of success within the community by evaluating your competition, the overall followers base, and the popularity of your content platform.

Create a personal website or blog

Having a website will allow people to search you and find the different social media platforms your on as well as get direct access to your content. A website will also give promoters and advertisers an easy way to contact you. Make sure to  create a responsive website that works on phones and different browsers. If you specialize in video, you can create vlogs instead of writing in a blog.

Use hashtags and memes

Hashtags and memes are both ways that you can reach a larger audience and create new fans. Find hashtags that apply to what you’re doing and use them creatively in posts to find fans that share the same interests. Encourage followers or fans to follow a specific hashtag and grow your follower base through social media. Share memes that are relevant to what’s going on currently in the news.

Keep working at it

What many people don’t understand is that to become famous online celebrity takes as much time as a full-time job for many people. If you are producing or creating unique content, you may not see an initial reward for all the hard work you’re putting. It’s important to continue to keep staying consistent and to take advice and criticism from those around you.To be famous you need to have something unique and marketable to be famous.
