Learn how to become a social media star

Day-long event will teach you how to make a living from Instagram

Have you ever wondered how social media stars become famous? And, the million dollar question, how do they make money from it?

In 2017, social media “influencers” are a tool for companies looking to expose their brand, goods or services, to a digitally native, millennial audience. In short, influencers have a huge following, grown through user-generated, interesting and informative content – and brands use them to reach and, suitably, influence their buying decisions.

If you’ve ever dreamt of quitting your job and making your living on social media, then you won’t want to miss this day-long event, where you can learn from the best.

Head over to Media One Hotel in Dubai Media City on Saturday September 30, for a range of opportunities to hear from some of the biggest influencers in the region, plus video editing classes, money-making opportunities and more.

How to be the Next Social Media Star, running between 8.30am and 5.30pm, will feature influencers such as fashion blogger Mariam Yeya (@mrskeepa), tech influencer Emkwan, plus the head of strategic media partnerships for entertainment in MENA and Turkey from Facebook, Sara Abu Zahra – who will teach you how to grow your audience using Instagram.

For Dhs275 per person, this event promises to deliver what you need to get yourself on the road to living the social media influencer dream. Email events@itpliveme.com to register your place.
