Let's take a little trip back to right before the whole pandemic hit. People had jobs, businesses weren't worried about having to shut down, and online shopping wasn't as massive as it is today. Sure, we are slowly "getting back to normal" with a vaccine on the way and money being pumped back into the economy for small businesses and the American people, but if it's one thing the whole pandemic taught us is that your Digital Life isn't going anywhere anytime soon.
The midst of the pandemic gave rise to a new way to make money online. A very lucrative way to make money online and it had to do with selling yourself and your image to people who are willing to spend the cash and boy were their people willing to spend the cash. As more than 8,000 Content Creators register on the site daily, ONLYFANS boasts it has 50 Million Registered users and 500,000 New Users per day with 15 Million Users per month. Pretty crazy number huh?
With engagement on other platforms like IG/FB/LinkedIn/YT at an all-time low, influencers do what they do best, lead their traffic to a new site and put a paywall behind it and some of their audience is willing to pay. "Launched in 2016, OnlyFans is a subscription-based social media platform where users can sell and/or purchase original content—typically of the pornographic variety. When utilized as an adult site, users will post NSFW videos and photos to their accounts, which are protected by a paywall." Yup, you read that right, typically pornographic material is created on this site with the Top 1% of Accounts making the app 33% of its Money.
Now let's get down to it, for the rest of us that aren't "aesthetically appealing", we have to rely on adding Entertainment, Education, or Information in the form of Value back to our community. This article is an example of Information and can serve as giving you permission to get your Digital Journet started. But how do you do it? Here are 5 tips on why you need to start your Personal Brand today. See below.
New YouTube Channel that will teach you everything you need to know about building a Profitable Personal Brand.
1: You get to share your expertise with the world.
Create Video Content that shares your expertise and double down on your personality. There has never been a better time in the history of man where we are able to do this and share it with the world in a matter of seconds. It literally can be one video that makes you pop and go viral and a new career path will open up.
2: This is the new way to network.
Long gone are the days when we would all meet up at a business mixer and exchange Business Cards, that no one ever keeps, for the chance at potential business. Large gatherings are a thing of the past, at least for now. Building an influence online and sharing it with the world allows people to come to you, not the other way around. In a way, it filters out the people you want to work with and vice-versa.
3: It brings people value.
In a world that doesn't really make sense anymore, people are looking for something of value to consume. All these Social Media Sites and had massive growth in time consumption over the past few years becasue we literally can't do anything else. I mean, why would we want to spend more time with our kids when we can binge on a whole new series on Netflix, learn new TikTok dances, and see escape into the world of YouTube. That was sarcasm by the way.
4: It brings people along for the journey.
Growth doesn't happen overnight and in almost all cases building a Profitable Personal Brand is going to take a lot of time, money, and energy. But if it is one thing people like to see is the journey. When you look back you'll see just how far you've come and when you document it, it gives people hope that they can do the same.
5: This is your new portfolio.
Places like YouTube, IG, LinkedIn, Facebook are your new portfolio. You can produce your best work and show it off to the world. That opportunity did not exist 10 years ago. With new skills being learned every single day on YouTube by the average person, you no longer need to rely on your body to bring in that money. By continuously working on your craft, you'll get better day by day. People are going to notice and it will lead to potential work the more you keep on doing it.
