One-On-One with Social Media Icon Chris Collier


by Cyrus Webb

I've said before in the pages of Conversations Magazine that your gifts will make room for you. Someone who has seen that to be true is Chris Collier. I have known him for several years, and he has used his platform to not just amplify his own messages but help others to do amazing things when it comes to their goals and dreams online and offline. 

Known as the "Social Media Icon", Chris is sure to inspire you to decide what you want and then do the work to make it a reality. 

Chris, glad we have a chance to share your work with our Conversations audience. You have been able to provide inspiration and information to people around the world. How does it feel to be of service to others?

It is really my pleasure, Cyrus. My goal is to serve others, helping them reach their greatest potential by creating, growing, and maximizing their personal brand!

You are definitely doing that. What has it been like for you to see how what you have shared benefited others?

I have been so blessed to have helped others realize their visions, and some of them have exceeded them and created new ones. 

Service in itself is a gift. Have you always known that you were meant to be of assistance to others?

Yes! As long as I can remember. My parents engrained it into me, along with mentors and others have as well. Life has also taught this to me.

Many people are afraid to share their thoughts and their work in public. How did you develop the courage to not just decide what you want to do but let others know about it?

Everyone is afraid, but at some point you either overcome the fear or you will be overcome by it. I have a few friends that served this country; one of them in particular had to jump out of planes. He said that he was afraid, but every time he went to jump he said to fear: " I am glad you are here, fear. Since I have to jump, You are going to jump with me!” When fear attacks you, you must retaliate by punching fear in the face! That being said, the more you practice the easier it gets.

Social media is one of those tools that we all have gotten used to being around. How have you used it to grow your business?

I use it as a syndication network for my brand and my content. There are so many platforms (and people) to reach. Every platform has its own type of potential customer.


To that point you are known as The Social Media Icon. Where did that title come from, and what does it represent for you when it comes to the work you do?

I created that moniker because it fits in with what we do. We help people overcome the internet using Social Media to brand themselves.

For those dealing with the setbacks that 2020 has brought into their lives, what would you tell them about how they can start the process of getting on a better footing with their business?

Four things. 1) Make a decision to be and do better. 2) Work on you {Jim Rohn said that if you work on your business you will make a living, but when you work on yourself you will make a fortune. 3) While working on yourself find a way to help others in some type of need. 4) Find a way, if possible, to monetize that service.

You are providing some opportunities to work with individuals when it comes to their social media presence and building their brand. Talk with us about it. 

We have some classes forming for a few qualified people to help them pivot to creating their own personal brand. This is going to be a 9-week course and just a handful of those will have direct access to me, one-on-one for 20 minutes per week! The value of this course is worth its weight in gold. 

Any advice you want to share to those who are still trying to figure out what they want to do and how to do it?

Yes! Whether you do affiliate marketing, network marketing, sales, service, teaching, podcasting, vlogging, training, or coaching you have your own way of doing it, and we can create that into a brand! With the right guidance we can help you go farther, faster and create the desired success.

Great to share your work here, Chris. How can our audience stay connected with you?

It's my pleasure. My Website is www.conquerwithchris.com
