4 Secrets To Social Media Success With Entrepreneur Juris Bruvers

Today I was able to interview Juris Bruvers, a social media entrepreneur, who at just 16 has been able to build a career from his social media profiles. Social media plays a massive role in our everyday lives and has allowed many young people to start their careers at a very young age. Juris will give an insight into his life as a young businessman, how he found his place in the highly competitive field of social media. How he now helps other influencers to grow their following.

What are the most important values in your business?

I highly prioritize my clients. It is always important to focus on the client’s needs, not at the rewards. Throughout the deal, I ask myself – “Why did they come to you?”, “What are they looking for?”, “How can you make sure the client leaves satisfied?”. This helps me to make sure I always put the client first. Furthermore, I am always kind and understanding since it is essential to build lasting relationships with my clients. After all, you never know how these contacts might benefit you in the future.

There’s no business without challenges, what challenges did you face, and how did you overcome them?

A significant challenge was the backlash I got from the people in my community. They criticized my sudden growth in followers, did not support me or believe in me. However, today I have learned to focus on the positive and remember how much my work has paid off. It is the key to growing or doing anything bold – do not let the negativity from others stop you. Besides the hate, a slight barrier was my knowledge of this very saturated market of influencers. I did not go into this thinking I will make this my career, so I was truly unprepared. I had to process a lot of new information at once.

How did you get started and move up through your industry?

I started when I was just 14. I shared my videos of playing video games online, purely for fun, and agreed to do promotions for just 1$. Once I earned my first 10$ I gained a powerful drive that pushed me to where I am today. My followers grew and I gained many new contacts. Once I reached tens of thousands of followers, I realized that I have the power to help many new influencers to breakthrough. Now people come to me when they need help, to attract people who would be interested in their content. At this point, I have worked with hundreds of today’s most popular influencers and have gained many powerful contacts.

What’s your most significant source of inspiration?

I am very moved by people who spend hours each day helping others and dedicate their lives to their careers. People who put others before themselves which has resulted in them creating new relationships and turning their lives upside down. My prime inspiration is Nicolas Corsaro, this man has gone a similar path to mine and it is encouraging to see someone succeed in the same field. Of course, my surroundings have pushed me to continue to work hard, like my family and friends, who continuously had faith in me and reminded me why I started this.

There are a lot of young people out there who are trying hard to be as successful as you are, what word of advice can you give them?

Do not come into this prioritizing money. Create a meaningful goal like – I want to help others or I want to create a platform to spread a message. Keep your intentions pure and remember that a platform comes with responsibilities.
