It’s very easy to see today’s social media influencers as young people who fell into a career that happens to earn them six figures each year. When we think of the classic influencer-turned-celebrity, we often think of actors, musicians, or TV personalities. We may think of those who travel the world, gradually building up a network by meeting people in person. We think of glamor, opulence, and a whole lot of luck!
Of course, some influencers do fall into this category, but Jonathan Jadali does not. An entirely self-made success story, this young entrepreneur made his way into the world of influencer marketing and online success. He worked incredibly hard to achieve what he did and has already made his mark on such a large part of the social media world.
Here’s how he did it:
A Tactful Approach to The World of Bitcoin
Jadali always knew that he wanted to make his name known in the world, and his opportunity came in 2009 with the arrival of Bitcoin. He learned how this cryptocurrency worked, what could be gained from it and how he could use it to make money. His technique was well thought out and calculated, and this certainly paid off in a relatively short amount of time.
The young entrepreneur diligently invested his time and later his money into Bitcoin. Before too long, the teenager had cracked the code, resulting in him being able to buy shares and sell them for a profit. His ability to preempt successful trends allowed him to foresee that Bitcoin would become a valuable asset, and he acted accordingly.
Bitcoin became extremely volatile and eventually crashed in 2018, but thankfully, Jadadi had already seen this coming. He chose to sell off his investments for hundreds of thousands of US dollars before the Bitcoin market crashed. This continuous theme of identifying what online trends are going to be successful seemed to follow Jadali around, and he took this opportunity to make the shift on to social media.
From Young Bitcoin Investor to Social Media Influencer
By 2019, Bitcoin had crashed and become virtually obsolete, but it had already served Jadali, so it was time for a change of scenery. He decided to make the shift over to social media influencing. He already had a strong pool of people with whom he could network to promote himself online, so he was in a good position. Just as he had done with cryptocurrency, this promising young entrepreneur immediately recognized the power of social media. He could see that so many more young people trust social media advertisements than regular advertisements, and he took advantage of that.
A Social Media Micro-Influencer
By the beginning of 2020, Jonathan Jadali had developed an Instagram following of about 66,000. Today, he uses his social media accounts to share his success in easy-to-read, bite-sized pieces and showcase how far he has come thus far. He is regularly approached by international brands to establish partnerships and to speak about how he achieved success at such a young age. He has remained true to himself throughout all of his success and is passionately sharing his story to those who wish to pursue a similar career path. He continues to act as a mentor for those who wish to follow in his footsteps and is an inspiration to young people who want to succeed through more modern means.
