So if you are like the general audience and have nothing unique no one would be interested in your profile and would not even notice you. Be unique and create your own style. The people who are successful on social media are the ones who are different and have some unique style that defines them. So work on your style and create something that can be associated with only you.
Be amusive, funny and witty:
Humor and comedy get along everywhere and with everyone, and one thing that you can associate with almost every social media influencer is that they are witty, funny and crazy. I am not saying that try that if you are not good at humor. But if you are great then create something witty, wicked and funny.

Everyone has some talent that he or she is aware of. If you need to be famous then work on that talent and grow it with passion and devotion. Learn from the best in that field and rehearse and practice hard. Soon you would develop a mastery on that talent and then you can showcase that on the social media platforms like Instagram and youtube. Today we see so many youngsters who are doing great on social media because of their talent. They may be not the best but they are unique and have developed their individual talent.
Build you brand:
Today we are living the world ruled by social media, it is indeed a tough world and only the people who have established themselves survive this highly competitive world. To be famous you need to build a name for yourself. You need to transform yourself into a brand. You should develop such an aura that your niche should be identified with your name or brand. Be determined and focused on what you want to show the world and work on it. Promote yourself on every social media platform and ask your followers and well-wishers for promoting you. Remember Rome was not build in a day, neither would be your brand, you have to earn it.
Every famous influencer has developed a unique signature for themselves and have created a brand for themselves. When you become a brand in yourself, people identify you with your signature or if they find your specialty anywhere they associate that with you.
