Social media helps people stay connected and updated with daily happenings, especially during the pandemic, where physical distancing is required. Aside from keeping in touch, people can find ways to monetize their social media accounts, based on an idea or passion that they may have. Monetizing accounts may be daunting and discouraging for some, especially comparing engagements from more prominent and more established accounts.
Jowy Cenat, too, has felt that familiar hesitance before. However, his passion for having creative freedom and creating content pushed him forward. Now, Jowy plays the piano and can convert his social media accounts to a monetizable platform, even with under ten thousand followers.
Going through four years of college, Jowy brainstormed a fundamental guide on how to grow a social media presence with 0 followers. Jowy was born in Queens, New York, having a Caribbean-Haitian descent. He grew up poor and started with nothing. Not easily defeated, Jowy decided to start smart and used his wits to navigate his life around.
Years of Jowy’s life were spent investing in learning how to do these two simple things: developing a passion and learning how to record himself doing said passion craftily. In 2013, Jowy started his journey, even when he was just twelve years old. Jowy recorded himself reviewing any electronics around his house and posted them online.
Eventually, Jowy earned himself affiliate commissions and collected $2.90, jumpstarting his passion for video influencing. As a teenager, making $2.90 for recording and making videos on YouTube was a breakthrough. Within a few weeks, Jowy was earning $61 every two to three weeks on the internet, and since then, he never looked back.
In college, Jowy is still using the same principles in making money online through videos. Though a few years have passed and techniques may change, the principles of monetization are still the same and never-changing. It led Jowy to publish his first book on monetizing videos, called “Video Influencer Authority,” which is a guide on how to use the power of video to become a micro-influencer.
Through the book, Jowy can guide people to follow his ways and monetize their passion through making online videos. Jowy offers a free one-hour training webinar for the people who get a free copy of the book. The book is packed with knowledge, filled with tips and strategies. Many testimonials of people have said they learned and took action on all of the tips in the book.
Jowy’s journey pointed him to getting into diverse avenues to pursue his passions, such as becoming a videographer and creating beautiful cinematic videos for clients.
Aside from being a content creator, Jowy is certified in mental health first aid; he is a huge advocate for mental health in minority communities because the lack of mental health awareness affected him in his undergraduate years of college. Jowy graduated from Stockton University with a major in pre-occupational therapy with a dual minor in holistic health and public health.
In every endeavor he takes, Jowy’s goal is to help and inspire others to pursue their dreams and create a community filled with compassion and greatness.
