Retrotech-blog-by-matthew-taylor-Youtube-influencer

Summing up the first round:

Having looked at the heavy weights of UK Bloggers and Influencers, we can establish the following success strategies they have applied to attract millions of followers:

  • Building a unique brand – each blogger regularly shares content about their expert niche and they have built a brand with their name on social media and YouTube and use their blog to showcase all activities, services and products they offer. They have collaborated with many relevant news and tv channels and marketed themselves to increase their exposure and followership, establishing themselves as experts in their field.
  • Entertaining & Educating – each influencer provides entertaining and informative web content customized to their target audience. A fitness blogger offers recipe books, a parenting blogger offers children’s books, a food blogger offers a healthy lifestyle app. All of them have turned their online content into products or services that they can earn from.
  • Scaling – to keep up with providing relevant and regular content on all their channels they have scaled their operations and invested in publishing books, apps or products, turning them into digital entrepreneurs (most of them have registered companies in the UK which you can find on Get information about a company – GOV.UK (www.gov.uk)).

peter-robinson-pop-justice-bloggerPeter Robinson is a British blogger who created Popjustice in 2000 and the blog has grown alongside the pop music culture. He tagged it as a ‘pop blog that got slightly out of hand’, and coupled with huge social following, Popjustice shares a playlist of the hottest pop tracks weekly, which has endeared it to the heart of pop lovers all over the world. It is very obvious immediately that sponsored ads are one money maker on this blog (it is a good example of how much such ads, if placed in the header especially, can distract from the main blog content). People can submit their music via the blog and the blog features new music so it is possible that new musicians pay a fee to be listed.

Summing up the second round:

Despite “only” having hundreds of thousands of followers, these UK Bloggers and Influencers utilize similar success strategies to the top 10 UK bloggers and some of them may soon attract millions of followers too as there are no limits.

  • Building a personal brand – each blogger regularly shares often more personal or opinionated content about their niche and they have built a personal brand with their name on social media and YouTube. Some link their blog with their social media to integrate all activities, services and products they offer and populate them more effectively. They marketed themselves through coverage in the press, collaborations with other influencers or established brands to increase their exposure and followership, establishing themselves as experts in their field.
  • Creating Unique Content – each influencer tries to distinguish themselves from their competitors by providing unique and branded content and online products customized to their target audience. From the personal blog design and logo to their social media presence and post design, you can see that they brand it all so it will be easily recognised and found on the internet.
  • Scaling – it becomes clear that whether they have millions or thousands of followers, they still need to provide exciting regular content on all their channels so they have also scaled their operations and invested in publishing books, apps or products, and possibly hiring staff to support them with their activities. With many freelancers in this field it is easier today to hire people for certain remote jobs like social media posting.
