Many influence without caring at all, but just by having an attitude!

I heard that social media influence all starts with “showing your care” – is that true?

No, it’s not. Many influence without caring at all, but just by having an attitude!

“Show you care” is the new “be authentic” — general observations about what all social media Inf (or “Infs” as I like to call them, because “Influencers” is a terrible term) do, that are definitely not true for everyone. I know these ideas it make sense … but having done Inf marketing for a while I’ve learned that there is no ONE thing that makes you an Inf, and every community likes something different.

  • You might be funny and not give a sh** about people, and that’s ok for your community (comedians are like that, right?).
  • You can be loved.
  • You can be HATED (many politicians are and so are – some will say – “spoiled” singers).
  • You can be boring, really boring.
  • You can be funky and super interesting.

All work…. depending on the community THEY built (because Infs are community leaders)!

Brand Managers: find a community that is very, very related to what you do, follow their leader (that will be the Infs), and judge if the Inf is able to bring new conversations to the community. If yes, that’s your candidate. Interview and close a deal with them!
