Being an influencer for many people is now a career choice, but having thousands of followers doesn’t always translate into it being lucrative. Brands look to influencers to advertise their products, but they will need you to be able to get their information across but in your style and the most effective way of them doing this is video content. So you’ll need to be able to deal with scripts, information but keep it all as natural as possible.
