1- How did you get your beginning as an influencer?
I started my blog two years ago just to share my love for fashion and style; now still! And if I could monetize what I love and passion for, that is a bonus!
2- How does your creative approach change from one social media platform to another?
Always ASK the audiences! Many of my thoughts and ideas come from my followers and other influencers from the responses/ feedbacks they gave me- I always take advice from peers (goods and bads) so I know what I did well and could have done better.
3- Why do you think your work garnered a positive reception from your followers?
Positive energy is key! Everyone has downtime and I get it- but I don’t often share my negative thoughts on social media as I only keep it to myself ‘cus I just simply think that every problem has a solution, and people rather see to the result/way to solve it than seeing you nagging about a problem.
4- Have any tactics been especially effective in helping you grow your audience?
BE ACTIVE and respond to all comments! Every single word is an effort you know? There are trillions of users out there and they chose to comment on your page? How precious is that? #Gratitude
5- How would you say your content has changed since you started?
I think the age of my followers is growing like me! Needy to say, the way I dress, the places I go, the brands I collaborate are changing as I grow.
6- What type of content does well on Instagram but don’t on another platform?
Twitter maybe? I really like to post multiple pictures on one in-feed post but T would not do, unfortunately.
7- What kind of struggles are often not talked about around being an influencer?
People think that we just go around and travel between cities for pictures and neglect about the effort and the grind we spent behind the “scene”!
8- What is the most rewarding part of being one?
I was nominated in the first edition of @influencerrewardsmonaco and that felt very honored and rewarding.
9- Where do you see yourself in the next 5 years?
A cheerful, young, and boss lady in my own brand/company with my man.
10- A final thought?
I believe that the future is the Internet (Of course, AI, too. I rely on some aspects) and together we’ll make the virtual world better.
