The life of an influencer seems like one of endless glamour and fun. Being courted by big brands, free goodies, tickets to events, it seems like the perfect life! While all this might be true, influencers have often attained position through a lot of learning and hard work. Building up a huge online following is no easy feat, and producing consistently high quality, informative and interesting content is a full-time job. Their fans often number in the thousands and hundreds of thousands – the most successful influencers boasting over a million – and the care and attention they have put into earning their large followings gives them huge clout when it comes to promoting brands and businesses.

So if you’ve ever fancied yourself as a budding social media influencer, or you love keeping up to date with the latest trends, make sure to check the lads out on Instagram for the latest style tips, curated fashion content and, of course, stunning photographs.
