His Facebook Livestreams about Donald Trump during his then candidacy gained him a significant social media audience and regular television news appearances. 

He had a diverse upbringing by immigrant parents and traveled through Central America where he learned to speak Spanish fluently from his Guatemalan mother.

He has also used the same system to help grow a real estate brokerage, exotic car dealerships, E-commerce products, clothing lines, television & film releases, musicians, authors, actors, entrepreneurs, universities, and charitable organizations. Here is how Vito Glazers can make you an influencer.

Follow The Money

Glazers advises that the first step to becoming an influencer in your field is not posting bikini photos on the beach trying to grow your Instagram to a million followers, but rather figuring out what audience your content appeals to, and developing a plan to use your content as a path to make money as you grow the audience. Some ways that he advises monetizing audiences are developing an offer or service, selling products, tickets to live events, or even coaching, training programs and masterclasses.

Establish Your Claim To Fame

What is it that makes your influence unique?  Vito Glazers specializes in helping people craft their claim to fame. This is what makes you appealing to the media.  It is why your brand is special.  What do you want to be known for?  According to Glazers, claims to fame can range from winning an award or accolade in your industry, to doing something controversial or that garnered a lot of attention on social media.  Your claim to fame should be supported with coverage from major media outlets.    

Sell Your Story

Once you have your monetization strategy in place, and have developed and established your claim to fame, the next step is to begin selling your story.  In an ideal situation, your claim to fame is so strong and your story is so appealing that either a book publisher or even a film company want to own the rights to your story to produce into content.  If you are not able to sell the rights to your story up front, there are many other ways to sell and monetize your story.  One way that Glazers helps clients sell their story, is from the stage.  By booking stages and speaking at live events, you can sell your story to an engaged audience.  Another way is through social media.  Glazers uses the same formula for selling from the stage, to sell on livestreams and webinars as if those platforms were stages. Anywhere you can get an engaged audience that your story will resonate with, is an opportunity to lead them to your offer or service that you created in step one, and continue generating income from your story.

Keep Scaling

Once you have gotten the hang of selling your story to audiences, the sky’s the limit. Every platform becomes an opportunity to generate income from your story.  Your mission as an influencer should then be to create content on all relevant platforms that continues to draw in your ideal audience and turn them into clients.  Again, social media, webinars, masterclasses, live events, podcats, television apperances and even film give anybody with a story to tell a platform to share that story.

Without following the money first, influencers find themselves creating and promoting content with no plan on how to ever generate an income to sustain their craft.  By following the money first, it gives influencers a guide of how to create content and what opportunities to pursue, and how to monetize those opportunities, which allows them to continue creating, inspiring and influencing.

How A Young Entrepreneur Followed In The Footsteps of His Father to Find His Own Success

Published

on

Monetizing a YouTube channel with ad revenue can be easy once the subscriber count starts to hit 6 figures. Advertisers love putting paid promotion on channels of YouTubers who have a loyal, unique audience that all have common interests. Christoph Filgertshofer, after working relentlessly to build his following to 200k subscribers, decided to go a completely different route with monetization. Having grown up surrounded by entrepreneurship, he decided to get a start in eCommerce.

Growing up in Germany, Christoph’s father would always share his exciting stories as an entrepreneur. His dad would share stories of his practice and recruiting clients with him at a young age, and the lessons he learned from these stories stuck with him throughout his childhood and teenage years. By the time he was old enough to become further immersed in entrepreneurship, Christoph started hustling flipping Pokemon cards and selling newspapers as young as 14 years old. He saw all of his friends being handed iPods from their parents, and made a pact with himself to make enough money on his own to save up for one.

With all of this experience at such a young age, it was no surprise that Christoph had such an interest in selling products online and working for himself. Even with all of the success he would wind up experiencing, he still had his shortcomings off the bat as he did not have enough experience. His first store flopped, but he worked tirelessly to learn the craft and perfect his online store and market it correctly. Similar to his YouTube experience, his hard work would pay off in a major way as he soon saw himself generating 5 figures of revenue in one month and scaling it to multiple six figures in revenue. 

Christoph has found that he has come to enjoy his successes now simply because of how much work went into his process. Without failures and setbacks, the success would be taken for granted and would ruin the whole journey for him. Before his story even began, Christoph was inspired by his father as a little kid hearing his stories after he would come home from work. His dad would always share with him how he never grew tired of his work, and always had a new problem to solve to keep him on his toes. Hearing all of this as a kid, Christoph knew the only option for him as a career would be to start his own business and be his own boss as well. 

As a result of all of his hard work, Christoph is rewarded most by the amount of freedom he has on a daily basis. He can work from wherever he wants and can plan a trip today and be gone tomorrow. The ability to do whatever you want, work for yourself, travel, and make a great living has made all of the struggles and setbacks well worth it. And we are sure, that’s not it – there will be more occasions we hear from this young entrepreneur in the future.
