Silician Instagram Influencer Shakes the Social Media World With His Growth Plan
By Space Coast Daily // May 7, 2020
Social media management expert and influencer, Mirko La Rosa, uses his innovative Instagram growth to the presence of businesses and individuals on social media
Mirko La Rosa is an Instagram influencer and expert with vast experience across different industries, haven worked with two of the biggest consulting firms in the world.
Originally from Catania, Sicily, Italy, Mirko had always wanted to live a life free of the restrictions that come with working from 9 to 5.
However, his journey to entrepreneurship like many other business owners was not one of the smoothest.
Mirko moved to Milan at the age of 18 to Study Business Administration at Bocconi University, one of the best universities in the country. He moved to England to study English after graduation, subsequently working for the world-leading consulting firms – PWC and Ernst & Young.
He moved on to work with Accenture Italy where he rose to the position of Manager, handling international IT projects of up to € 10 million.
However, Mirko could not find fulfillment in the job, earning less than $2,000 per month with more than 12 working hours daily.
This made it a bit difficult to maintain a work-life balance, leading him to the path of self-discovery – social media management.
After days and weeks of hard work, which included checking all influencers, writing down a list of advertisers, and contacting them to sell the first $10 shout out, he eventually earned his first internet dollar – a $30 from a shout out, a feeling he described as “heavenly.”
Inspired by the 16-year-old online entrepreneur that rakes in thousands of dollars monthly via Instagram posts, Mirko continued to put in the work and the rest, as they say, is history.
Mirko has been able to understand Monetization techniques, gaining more than 47 million followers, and employing several creative hands.
Mirko has also given back to the society, creating the first Instagram community of professional influencers (about 3k people) with a mailing list of 15k+ members all with 50k + followers even while he traveled the world. In a similar vein, Mirko was able to create a real estate business alongside some of his partners, which has grown by 40% yearly.
During Coronavirus, he also launched a new business that involved collaborations with major Italian influencers to help the Instagram community in Italy, giving away about 7.5k € in goods every month.
