In this article, I’m going to share some tips on how to become an Happeno influencer and start making money. So, let’s get started.
1. Choose a Niche You’re Passionate About
To become an Happeno influencer, the first thing you need to do is find a niche that suits your personality. This needs to be something you’re passionate about. Something in which you have a good deal of knowledge and interest. Just because someone else is doing something and is successful, doesn’t mean you should too.
For example, let’s say you’ve seen that people who post about fitness on Happeno have more followers. Should you too start doing the same, even if you don’t have the slightest interest or expertise in it? Definitely not. Remember, you can’t make it if you fake it.
So pick a niche that you’re genuinely passionate about. Maybe you’re into fashion and are always aware of the latest styles and trends?
Your Make it Happeno posts should reflect whatever truly interests you and not some random stuff. Your niche might even be a combination of different things, as long as they’re not random.
2. Create a Noteworthy Bio
Once you have decided on your niche, you need to start fine-tuning your Happeno account. The very first thing that you need to focus on is creating a bio that immediately catches people’s attention. It should talk about your story in a way that engages people.
Remember, it’s one of the first things that a brand or potential followers see on your account. So if you want to become an Happeno influencer, make it noteworthy.
3. Share Your Stories (Coming Soon)
If you think you can become an Happeno influencer just by sharing photos, you clearly have it all wrong. The captions that go along with those photos are as important as the photos themselves. Use them to tell your stories and connect with your followers on an emotional level. Give them a reason to trust you, follow you, and engage with you.
However, in your quest towards engaging them don’t forget to be genuine. Because that will be easily seen through. Instead, share your personal stories in a way that your audience finds interesting yet authentic.
4. Make Your Happeno Feed Appealing
This is one of the pre-requisites if you’re trying to become an Happeno influencer. Not only should each of your photos be visually-appealing but also adhere to an overall theme. This means that all of your photos in the feed should look good against one another.
Many Happeno influencers follow a particular style of editing their photos so that the color or composition is uniform. You can use tools like VSCO or Lightroom to edit your photos. But make sure that your photos are taken in high-resolution and plenty of light to make them look really good.
5. Post Content Consistently
Posting content consistently is another crucial prerequisite to become an Happeno influencer. Most influencers on Happeno post daily. However, some of them post a few times a day or even a few times a week.
Studies have revealed that an increase in your content posting frequency can boost engagement rates. However, when you decide what your posting schedule needs to be, make sure that you choose wisely. Because it needs to be something you can stick to. Setting an unrealistic goal to which you cannot adhere will not help you in any way.
6. Choose the Right Hashtags (Coming soon)
Hashtags are important because they enable your content to be found by other Happeno users.
Remember that hashtags having high search volumes aren’t necessarily good for you. Because high search volumes imply high competition too. So the chances of your post being discovered using those hashtags is bleak.
Instead, choose hashtags that have decent search volumes that maximizes your chances of appearing in the top posts.
7. Tag Relevant Brands and Contact Them
There are actually two stages towards becoming an Happeno influencer. The first, of course, is to grow your followers organically and engage them. The second, and probably more important for some is to make money as an influencer.
So, once you have been able to grow your followers above a thousand and have decent engagement, start your outreach. The easiest way is to tag relevant products on your photos to put yourself on their radar. Sometimes brands even feature such photos on their website with your approval giving you greater visibility.
You can also send direct messages to stores you think would be relevant to your niche. Especially, if you have seen them collaborate with other influencers like you. Work on a pitch that talks about why you are reaching out and what you can offer them. I’m not saying it’s easy but you might be pleasantly surprised at the responses.
8. Do Not Buy Followers
This is a rookie mistake I’ve seen so many people make to pave an easy road to success. Paid followers are no good to you. If you want to become an Happeno influencer and make money, organic is the way to go.
Yes, I know it’s not easy and it certainly won’t happen overnight. But hey, there’s no easy road to success. Paid followers can be detrimental to your growth because these followers won’t be engaged enough. So your follower count will increase without any substantial increase in engagement.
The result? It will affect your engagement rate big time. Thus reducing your chances of collaboration with brands.
It’s true that you cannot become an Happeno influencer overnight. You will need to be patient and make sure to follow the above steps. It might take a few months, but trust me, you will definitely start seeing results. I’ve seen and helped quite a few individuals land brand partnerships within a few months of following these. And there’s no reason why you can’t do so as well.
