As ordinary people with their ordinary lives become increasingly transformed daily through the internet and social media; the quest for fame and fortune is drawing a lot of people, especially the internet generation, into the race to become a celebrity. Internet sensations and overnight social media celebrities are being born by the day.

However, in reality, celebrities do not exist but are constructed through strategic practices through the use of the internet and social media. Celebrity wannabes in search of fame and fortune are learning to leverage these mediums to achieve their objectives through the increasing use of digital technology and social media platforms as sites for circulating personal content.

Social media can completely change us. It permits us to effortlessly interface with loved ones as well as share our life experiences on a worldwide scale. Furthermore, for a few, it has provided the opportunity for notability and a measure of fortune.

With YouTube stars like Justin Bieber and Shawn Mendes getting their enormous breaks on the web, an ever-increasing number of famous people are utilizing online media as a stage to share their abilities and get found.

How Does One Use Social Media to Attain Internet Celebrity Status?
Here are a few tips on how to become a social media celebrity.

1. Create a Niche By Generating Large Numbers
Celebrity status is only attained through a large following. To become a social media celebrity, you have to find ways to generate large followership on any platform that you may be active on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or YouTube. You can achieve this by asking your family members, friends, and extended contacts to add you and follow you on these channels.

2. Create a Unique Content
If you wish to become a celebrity or social media influencer, you have to create a unique or original identity by focusing on a specific item, issue, idea, or ideal. People have to know that you care about something. In simple terms, try to be an expert at something and share that expertise with your followers showing ways that idea or ideal can help them.

3. Share Your Content
No matter how original or unique your content is, it has little or no traction if it doesn’t reach as many people as possible. You have to have your content shared; pushed by friends and family, share your content in related communities, and let your family, friends, and extended networks also help you do the same.

4. Make Your Content Visible
Always add relevant tags to your content; use hashtags and tag relevant users on your post. This will increase your content visibility and help you increase your followership on various social platforms.

5. Work on Trending Topics
Trending topics in your locality or important national or global topics of discourse can help create the necessary awareness and visibility you need to attain the status of an internet celebrity. Your post can easily go viral and people will look forward to having your contributions on any subject of local, national, or global interest.

6. Communicate Regularly With Your Followers
Communicating with your followers creates a sense of intimacy. You will lose what little numbers of followers you have if they feel that you are aloof or don’t value them. Engage them regularly, share their contents and comments, and respond to comments as much as is possible. This will make your followers feel important and build passionate connections.

7. Use Images and Videos as Much as Possible in Your Contents
They say that a picture can tell a story better than a thousand words. Use videos, images, and skits to present your content. Nas Daily, Dhar Man, and some other very successful internet and social media celebrities were able to acquire such huge followership as a result of using videos to explain their contents. Doing videos may not be easy at first, but with adequate practice, it can make all the difference in the long run.

It is a great time to be a social media celebrity. Some top bloggers on social media are easily making insane extra income in the range of several hundreds of dollars per anum. On Twitter, an influential person can easily get between $50 to $100 for a simple tweet mentioning a sponsor’s product or a brand. Influential users on YouTube can make between $25,000 to $750,000 per anum, and the beauty of it all is that anyone with creativity and perseverance can become a social media celebrity and influencer. You may never know until you try.
