The more followers you have on your social media page, the higher your chances are of being able to monetize your page. When businesses are looking for social media influencers to sponsor, the first thing that they consider is an influencer’s followers. If they do not have enough followers, then it is not financially worthwhile for companies to sponsor them. It’s also worth noting that buying fake follows won’t help because companies can spot them quite easily.

If you want to know what the benefits of reaching a greater number of followers are aside from achieving sponsorship, then this article will address that, in addition to telling you how you can boost your account’s followers.

Brand Awareness

Increasing the number of social media followers that you have will increase your brand’s awareness if you are a business owner. If you are not but want to become an influencer, then increasing your page’s followers will still help to increase their awareness of you. A lot of people are buying likes on Instagram today, which is a good idea for your page, too. While fake likes won’t increase brand awareness, it will make your page look a lot more authoritative when people do find it.

Increased Sales

The more followers you have on your page, the more sales you can make. Again, this only works if you are a business owner. With that said, if you are an influencer, then more followers mean that you are more likely to be able to effectively sell your sponsor’s products, which will increase their sales. Most influencers take a percentage of the profits from proceeds of sales made through their page, which makes being an influencer very lucrative for some people.

Lead Generation

If you are a business owner, then having a lot of followers on your page can help you to generate more leads. Lead generation allows you to expand your market,  increase your digital following, get more customer reviews, increase profits, improve the quality of leads, and build online visibility. Once you have successfully generated leads, you then need to begin converting those leads into customers. If you have no idea how to do this, then it’s worth taking a quick course in business management and customer conversion.

Sponsorship Deals

If you are not a business owner but want to make money from having a large social media following, then naturally you will want to become an influencer. Becoming an influencer’s not as hard as many people make it out to be. Once you have amassed a large enough following and have established yourself as a digital influencer, you can then begin getting sponsorship deals. A sponsorship deal is when a company essentially pays you to market and advertise their products. You can earn a lot of money from sponsorships. In addition to earning money, the companies sponsoring you will also probably give you free merchandise.

Online Partnerships

The more followers you have, the more likely you are to be offered partnerships with companies. A company partnership is similar to a sponsorship, except in most cases you are paid a salary. When you have a sponsorship you are paid for specific posts and receive profits from any sales made. When you have a partnership, you are paid a fixed salary (which is usually very high) and are expected to make regular posts and advertise the business that you are partnered with. On social media, platforms require you to notify users if you are partnered with a brand.

Going Viral

If you have a lot of followers on social media, then your chances of going viral are significantly increased. Going viral is the dream of most influencers because viral posts significantly increase one’s chances of achieving success as an influencer. Influencers who go viral tend to be bombarded with sponsorship and partnership opportunities. You can earn a lot of money if some of your content goes viral. If you want to go viral, then make sure that you post regular content that’s unique and high-quality. If your content is not unique and high-quality then your chances of going viral are slim to none.

Beating Competition

If you have a lot of followers on your social media page, then you will beat your competition. No matter what niche or industry you influence in, you will always have competition. There are always going to be other content creators who are competing with you for your audience. In order to outdo your competition, you need to make sure that you publish very high-quality, engaging content. If you do not then your audience won’t be interested in you. Outdoing your competition will be almost impossible if you do not post high-quality content.

Brand Reputation

When your social media page has a lot of followers, you have a better chance of increasing your brand’s reputation and making yourself look professional. Not only do you have a large number of people to directly advertise yourself to, but you also look good in the eyes of new followers. The reason for this is that people tend to assume that businesses or influencers with large followings offer better services or content than ones that have hardly any followers. One’s social media reputation is based mostly on the number of followers that a person has. More followers will increase your brand’s reputation.

Page Monetisation

Lastly, when you have a lot of followers you are more likely to be able to monetize your page. Some social media platforms actually allow people to monetize their pages, meaning that they then receive money from new likes and followers, or advertisement click-throughs. Some platforms put advertisements on popular influencers’ pages. If followers then click through and visit the sites being advertised, then the influencer receives a small fee. Monetizing your page in addition to sponsorships and partnerships can be highly lucrative. You can earn an absolute fortune doing these things. You need a lot of followers before you can monetize your page, however.

If you are a business owner, then the benefits of increasing your social media followers are many. The same is also true if you want to become an influencer. Make sure that you post consistent and high-quality content though. If you don’t then you will struggle to maintain your audience.
