Language and literature are one of the oldest institutions in the world, ever-changing in their structure as well as in forms and platforms; love for literature has only increased with age. And this increased the impact on society, changed the perspectives, and created art without limitations. Through constant change, writing was something that has kept on inspiring generations.
Being a writer is a dream of many, but being a good writer is possible for few. The way to excellence passes through content, and content is always crowned with the throne of the king. Having engaging content with an equally engaging writing style puts the crown on this king’s head.
With the world at your fingertips and publishing being easier, the majority of content published today is on online platforms. This has led to increasing interest in the writing field, and hence a desire to learn more about writing which in return led to the huge creation of opportunities in the field for writers, entrepreneurs, and coaches.
Among a few successful entrepreneurs, generating around 2000 leads in the past four years, Chinedu Junior Ihekwoaba, is a poet, blogger, and an amazing coach to leverage talent on social media platforms.
With the opportunity to interview Chinedu, we got insights into his career.
Below are the highlights of the interview:
Please share your leadership journey in the content creation space.
It all started as far back as 2000. I have a flair for writing. Music inspired my love for writing. Hip hop precisely. Jay-Z, Eminem, Nas, Tupac, and co. These guys made me fall in love with wordplay. I love the rhymes in their rap. So, I said to myself, I can use wordplay for my content. Like, write in poetry format. So, my journey in writing started from there.
What was the inspiration that prompted you to start with content creation and content marketing?
Unemployment. I attended over twenty interviews in two years. They were all futile. Ben Ramedani saw my content on LinkedIn and said, “Hey, man! You are too good. You should not be unemployed. You should be making money with your writing. And I took his words hook, line, and sinker. So, I got on Udemy and Alison to learn content creation.
Initiating your career as a content writer, as a content writer, what were the challenges you faced, and enlist us the professional hacks that helped you become the grand success that you are today?
My color and country were my greatest challenges. I was never rated even by my country’s people. They hardly want to hire me until BAMF Media gave me an opportunity. So here is what I tell anyone trying to get into the content creation niche: believe in yourself. Be open to rejection. Love yourself first. Love your craft. Do it for love and money will come. I have always loved writing even before the money.
Share your experience of BAMF.co, and what were the learnings that made you ramp up your growth curve?
BAMF Media gave me exposure. I worked with top clients. I mean CEOs of multimillion companies in America [Russell Brunson, Billy Gene, Prince EA, etc.]. This made me see myself as a special content creator. It boosted my self-confidence. So, I can say BAMF made me.
As a successful leader in the social media space, please share your thoughts on the future of social media provided with the development of Metaverse, which is grabbing the global spotlight.
I really can’t say much about that. But I know social media will keep evolving. But I think Metaverse is the future.
Please share your opinion about the marketing and advertising industry for the budding entrepreneur
It is highly competitive. You can’t survive alone. Network with people. Learn every day. Learn from your failures. Acquire new skills and tools. Be flexible with your service rates.
