Top 3 Tips From A 15-year-old Social Media Entrepreneur For Success

Recently, I sat down with Makis Savvidis – a 15-year-old social media influencer, to uncover his story, and find out more about what advice he’d give to entrepreneurs on a similar path. I asked him a series of questions to unpick what formed his success and what values he holds close to him in business.

What’s something you wish you had known when you started your journey?

When I first started, I didn’t quite understand the value of social media. As time grew, and I began to make more money, I realized that social media is one of the most powerful marketing channels to date, as you can reach millions of people from your phone, making it an extremely profitable and lucrative business if you play your cards right. In other words, i just wish i had known how profitable having a big social media network is.

Where do you see yourself in a couple of years?

In a couple of years, I will Have expanded my network a lot, I will have made the contacts I need for business and furthermore this will become my full-time job, although i am thinking of doing a part-time job when I turn 18 so i can gather money and start traveling around the world.

To sum it up I think that social media can give you the advantage of not having to be constricted by a 9-5 job, which takes away your energy and restricts you from doing the things that you love the most. In other words, you end up having a more “free” life.

What are your views on spending money on materialistic things? 

I think that spending money on materialistic things is important so that you don’t waste your money on unnecessary things. I myself prefer investing almost all of my money into my network so my dream of making stable money off of social media comes true.

Could you explain the most successful moment of your journey?

The most successful moment of my journey was when I reached a point doing business with many big known companies including deals reaching up to thousands of dollars. Also, one more successful moment of my entrepreneurship journey was when for 1 whole week, i was closing 1-2k$ Deals daily.

In your opinion, what is the most important aspect of entrepreneurship?

First of all, when you are an entrepreneur, I think you must like the thing you are doing or you won’t be successful.

Secondly, I think entrepreneurship needs you to know what you are doing very well or if you don’t, learn it, this will only make your life easier, lastly when you are an entrepreneur you need to invest a lot and not just waste your money.

What was the biggest turning point in your whole journey as an entrepreneur? 

The biggest turning point as an entrepreneur in my whole journey was when my Instagram pages started blowing up by gaining 10k+ New Followers A Day. Then I Realized How Good I Was At Social media networking and that i wanted to be an entrepreneur.

Furthermore, I found out that you can make stable money from social media, so I am working hard to achieve that within the next 2-3 years in order to make a living from entrepreneurship.
