Want to become a social media influencer/strategist but you have no idea how to start?Then worry no more these hacks will help you kick start your journey/career as a social media strategist.First you need to know who a social media strategist really is what it really takes to become one.In simple terms a social media strategist is someone who has a big influence online and one who is able to use the influence to earn money or accomplish a certain goal.
Social media strategists earn money by marketing products on the social media or blogging.

Just like bloggers, social media strategists too work on different niches too. One can become influential in politics, fashion and technology among many other different categories. It all depends with what you love.Always have in mind that
A JACK OF ALL TRADES IS A MASTER OF NONE
Take for example a person trying to have influence in both politics and fashion industry. This will turn out to be disastrous because not everyone who loves fashion has interests in in politics. This person will end up losing some of his fans because they are either turned off by politics or fashion. So its always good to discover what you love and make it your niche and try to perfect it in all ways possible. If you have other interests then am not saying you should not talk about them but instead you can reduce its activity in order to maintain a good picture of your your brand.
