Kimmy who is a known face on the social media never thought about social media as a profession till the time she became a known face. Talking about the social media as a profession we caught up with Kimmy Nagpal to discuss her journey on social media as a profession.
People began following me at places and taking selfies with me. Once I became popular I came to know what power social media has. And in a quick time I knew what I should be doing next, I channelised my energy to grow as an influencer on selected platforms and it payed me back, in terms of fame, money, collaboration and bringing me closer to like minded people.
I have learnt a lot about life through social media there are times where we influencers are sure of a content doing great but it doesn’t happen, sometimes unexpected content becomes sensational. To be honest there is no rocket science about what exactly to make that audience would love. Audience are really unpredictable. Apart from all the perks of being a known face we have to deal with unnecessary hate and offensive comments which are really scary at times. I was never counted as someone good in academics and I knew right through the schooling that this is not my cup of tea. But thanks to social media for giving people like me a platofrm to showcase our skills and changing the mindset of people that skills do count. I feel like if you have talent and you show it the right way then today or tomorrow you will get what you deserve.
Social media has given those people a platform of their own now. If you are good at something you don’t need to stand in long queues and perform in front of few judges who may even insult you to increase the TRP all you need to do is just record your talent and upload it to social media.
I have countless examples about people whose life changed because social media gave them recognition. There are a large number of creators out there who might not be given their due fame if social media was not there. Good thing is that you don’t need any godfather here to help you make your way to the top if you have the talent then it depends on you, how far you take it.
I am amazed to hear the story that we grew up listening to about someone getting a package of 1cr per annum and being the hero of the town but to be honest now even if you are not good at studies and you do justice with your talent 1cr is not a big deal.
This is the power that social media has, Nagpal Said. So if you are a secret superstar too and want to show world about your talent then maybe its time to make changes to how you use social media, be a creator, be a star.
