Instagram has made more careers than we can possibly count. People in many industries use Instagram to share their knowledge and expertise with their millions of followers. This picture-sharing platform has helped scores of men and women earn a decent livelihood from the comfort of their home.
One such man who has mastered this ingenious platform is Alex Lombard. Alex was very clear right from the beginning that he didn’t want to do the 9-to-5 thing with his life. Even as a child, he aspired to break societal norms. That is why when he realized that he could make a career as a social media influencer; he grabbed the opportunity by the horns!
Born in St. Louis Missouri, Alex got into entrepreneurship at the ripe age of 21. Talking about his journey, he says, “I never could see myself working in a cubicle. I always dreamt of being my own boss as I wasn’t keen to work for someone else. When I realized that I could earn a living from anywhere in the world by being an influencer, I decided to get into the digital/social media space. However, in the beginning, I had no idea that simply posting on Instagram would snowball into something this big. Before I knew it, being an influencer turned into a full-scale business for me. The best part about working in the social space is that I get to operate according to my own schedule. While the money is great, the ability to help others through my brands and knowledge is what keeps me going.”
A multiple six-figure earner, Alex is the co-founder of Invigor8 – a digital marketing agency. He is also the founder and CEO of VisionWall INC – an Instagram company/personal online brand. Soon to be married to his best friend Hayley, Alex truly believes that success is more of a feeling than a specific thing or achievement.
While talking about his endeavors as an entrepreneur, Alex is proud to share that Invigor8 will surpass one million in revenue in 2019! He says, “I have over one million combined followers between my two brands on Instagram. I am a public speaker, investor and digital entrepreneur and I love every bit of what I do. I personally manage over a hundred 7 and 8 figure earners within my company by helping them expand their influence online. I have been featured on podcasts such as The Fighting Entrepreneur by Anik Singal, and Addicted2Success with Joel Brown. The journey so far has been truly exhilarating and I know it’s only going to get better from here on.”
Today, there are thousands of influencers in the online space and the competition is only getting thicker. When asked how he differentiates himself from his competition, Alex says, “I am honest and transparent with potential clients and I focus on delivering real, premium results for anyone that works with me.”
While it may seem like a cakewalk, being an influencer isn’t easy. You need to be constantly aware of what your followers want and how you’re going to give it to them. But if you put your mind to it, anything can be achieved!
