We all see it constantly online – influencers feuding and causing drama with other influencers!
Nobody wants to get a bad rep, so here are 4 ways you can stay out of the drama and avoid conflict with other influencers in your niche.
1. Don’t Give Constructive Criticism Publicly
A mistake often made is some influencers giving other influencers helpful advice publicly instead of privately talking about it.
With everything on the internet being public, this criticism often explodes into a full out war between fans of different influencers.
It’s better to handle these types of things one-on-one.
2. Don’t Gossip To Other Influencers
Avoiding influencer gossip is one of the key ways to avoid conflict with other influencers.
When influencers hang out, it’s not uncommon for them talk about others. This will surely get back to these other influencers.
When people feel their needs are not being met or heard, they lash out with anger and frustration, blame others’ reactions, and justify their own negative behavior. This leads to value conflicts.
You can make them feel better by changing your approach and improving your communication.
3. Don’t Assume The Worst
If someone says or does something wrong, make an effort to talk it out before assuming they’re unfit to be an influencer or are a bad person.
Sometimes people just had a bad day, causing them to do the wrong thing or say something off.
4. Talk About Disagreements Privately
Like not giving criticism publicly, if a disagreement happens between you and a fellow influencer, handle the problem behind closed doors.
Bringing the drama online causes a whole new set of problems for each influencer. To steer clear of a conflict that lasts, stay open-minded and keep it behind closed doors.
