Why does Tyrese Gibson follow this man’s Instagram account?

A Story About Digital Entrepreneur Alex Lombard

Alex Lombard

In the age of Bieber, Kardashian, Jenner and Gomez, social media is pretty heavily about who is new, skinny, girly and glam filled. One exception to this all is Tyrese Gibson who is a mega star in acting with an account almost at 10 million followers with crazy engagement.

Seeing this, I wondered if I knew anyone he followed. I didn’t directly, but in the age of communication and connections noticed one account, which I had friends know people at and that was owned by Alex Lombard of @Visionwall. We spoke about this and I learned a lot about his incredible story.

Alex started out as a young entrepreneur at the age of 21 after realizing he was not a fan of following the plan society lays out for everyone.

He said growing up he was always looking for a way out of the system and just wanted to be free in life of both time and money.

Alex began his career in direct sales where he learned all about business, finances, sales and the importance of growing everyday as a human.

This is also when he was introduced to the world of Instagram through a friend who shared with him the concept of making money online.

Originally, Alex started his account @Visionwall for the sole purpose of recruiting for his company and to sell product.

Not long after that Alex realized the power in building a long-term brand and all the benefits that come with that.

He then dedicated the next 5 years into mastering Instagram growth and branding which now has become a multiple six figure empire where he and his partners help hundreds of clients do the same thing for their own personal brands and businesses.

His team at Invigor8 (digital marketing company) specializes in helping other entrepreneurs all over the world and in a variety of industries, scale their Instagram accounts by the tens of thousands of new followers.

They help anyone from a young, excited entrepreneurs to high-level 7 and 8 figure earners, gain influence on Instagram.

With that, we get to the question. Why the hell is a major celebrity like Tyrese Gibson following Alex?

Here’s what Alex said, “I’m not exactly sure why but I do know he loves motivational content that relates to him. My pages must provide that for him.”

So…it may not be the answer you were hoping for but it does still leave us with an awesome story of a guy who wanted freedom so badly that he turned to Instagram and online marketing to create that for himself.

Alex now has a combined personal following between his two accounts, @Visionwall and of almost 1 million. He works with over 400 high paying and elite clients all over the world.

He’s done multiple interviews about scaling Instagram with very powerful people and co-owns his digital marketing company Invigor8 which is on pace to do over $3 million in 2019.

Alex is a true success story and proves that in today’s digital world anyone can find success if they truly want it.
