Here are John’s seven tips you need to know before you are ready for your digital closeup: 


1. Recognize YOUR Talent: Find what your “it” factor is and create original, authentic and passionate content around your strengths.


2. Be Patient, Consistent and Positive: You CAN make millions in this industry, but it doesn’t happen overnight. Have patience, post consistently, and be positive — the keys to social media success!


3. Post on Multiple Platforms: Expand your brand on new and multiple platforms to keep up with how quickly the internet changes.


4. Collaborate with Fellow Creators: Capitalize on trending and collaboration opportunities with your audience and fellow creators.


5. Know When to Pivot: Follow your gut instinct to formulate your personal brand and make spontaneous pivots when you feel the audience is losing interest or not engaging.


6. Brush Off the Haters: Learn to take criticism from “haters” on the internet with a grain of salt.


7. Be Thankful: Remember, you’re only as good as your audience’s reactions. Make sure you stay humble and acknowledge your audience.
