Not everyone who sets out on a journey to become a prominent social media influencer succeeds. Truth be told, very few actually make it, but not without any hardships and discouraging challenges along the way. There are those who, despite the obstacles and negative criticisms, manage to rise above them and become even more passionate to pursue their dreams. One such person is well-known social media influencer Joshua Liljenquist from Fairmont, Minnesota.
At only 22 years old, Joshua accomplished in a very short period what usually takes many people several years to carry out. He grew his Instagram following from 3,000 to 43,000 in just two months. He is currently growing his TikTok to 2 million followers and 15,000 subscribers for his YouTube channel. All these he accomplished in just a couple of months.
Joshua shares his effective strategies in his book Instagram Masterguide: Extreme Growth that is available on Amazon. He teaches readers different styles they can employ to attract a bigger audience and how to get profit from social media platforms at the same time. Joshua may have no formal training when it comes to branding and marketing, but he has the firsthand experience in building his own personal brand. Interestingly, his methods and creativity worked to his advantage.
Aside from Instagram Masterguide: Extreme Growth, Joshua also wrote TikTok Guide: Insane Growth and Tips To Become Successful: Make A Change. The young influencer sees himself publishing more books in the near future to inspire more people to never give up on their dreams. That regardless of what people may say about their pursuits, it will always be their hard work that will spell the difference. There will always be people who will criticize negatively, but for Joshua, he uses them as motivation to become even more successful.
Through his unexpected success as an influencer and book author, Joshua is encouraging people to see that it does not matter if they come from a small town with a population of 10,000 people like he did. With determination, hard work, perseverance, and the right attitude, they can truly reach what they set out to do.
“If you put in the work, the results will come with time. Stay motivated and be the best version of yourself. Starting is always the hardest part, but once you get past that stage it is smooth sailing from there,” Joshua reveals.
Currently, Joshua is taking up a communication course at Minnesota State University in Mankato, Minnesota, while managing his social media platforms at the same time. He is working on launching an organic workout drink business that has the ability to promote muscle recovery. It is highly recommended for fitness enthusiasts and professional athletes. Aside from this, Joshua is also preparing to introduce an investment firm that he will market to public figures in the future.
Joshua Liljenquist is anticipating greater feats for all his social media accounts in the coming months. He is looking forward to doing more collaborations with other influencers and big companies to promote initiatives that will impact communities in a positive manner.
