Quit Your Day Job, Become An Influencer? This Will Tell You If You Can


Becoming an influencer is a grind. You have to stick with it every day and become an expert in community building and engagement. You need to be self-aware enough to know when your content is good and when it sucks and stop yourself from posting sub-par content.

A ‘social salary calculator’ from Lickd shows how many followers/likes/views you need across the various platforms in order to quit your day job.

The tool’s easy to use. You put in your desired salary and it shows you how many YouTube views, sponsored posts on Instagram, or TikTok subscribers you need each year to reach your desired salary. For the purposes of this article, BroBible input the salaries of $35,000, $65,000, $100,000, and $250,000 so you can see what those numbers look like. Check it out!
