Hi everyone. How are you doing today? My post today is about personal sharing, heart to heart sesh, and a little tips.
I’ve been receiving endorsement since 2014 and start blogging in 2016.
People look at me and think that it’s easy and wonderful to become Blogger and Influencer.
“You get paid, you get free stuffs, you meet new friends”
These are the words usually spoken to me.
I won’t argue on that….
I do really meet new awesome friends, free stuffs to enjoy (some are the latest in trend), and some brands pay big amount.
But it isn’t fair if you only look at those so called blink-blink side.
I have faced lot of problems along the way too.
It is never easy to raise the number of followers, likes, comments and other engagement with the audience.
Those who work fairly will know that Instagram keeps changing the algorithms and make our audience upside down.
Not to mention the number of likes decreasing make your post unexplorable by the rest 😆
And all the dramas between bloggers and influencers trying to backstab one another.
After i have Darren, i don’t really engaged on such world. I do receive endorsements and collaborations, and come to events, but my priority is to become a mom and blogger from home.
That’s why i am very picky to the event i’m about to attend. It’s not the money, it’s not how far the venue or how big the brand is, but it’s about who will handle Darren when i go to event.
So please, i know there’re group of people talking behind my back think that i’m out of business, the truth is: if you don’t see me on an event doesn’t mean i am not invited, 90% of the times i get the invitation but can’t make it because i have my priority. And please, i am lady boss too. So i am doing really well 🙂 thank you!
And why i prefer blogging? They don’t sell fake audience and likes and followers to boost your blogsite. So i am pretty happy that blogging world is still fun and authentic ❤️
For endorsement, many influencer buy followers and likes. You can audit their follower auntenticity using igaudit.io
I don’t blame them, competition get so hard and they might not have other income source or just to make sure they’re stay popular…. so yeah..
What so funny is: i know some of instagrambabes that branding themselves so high, so exclusive and disgusting with those who buy followers and likes, end up their followers authenticity is less than 50%!!!
What a shame. I bet the quote is true. Those who speaks louder are the guilty one .
If there’re any of you like to boost by buying, it’s ok for whatever reason you do that, i don’t and i won’t hate you. Just please don’t act like you are the Queen and rule the world ok? Coz it’s decreasing your personal worth.
Thank you for being patient with my heart to heart session. ❤️
Now i believe many of you still wondering how to get endorsement/collaborations, and what the tips for staying on the business?
If you are about to start, posting good pictures with the help of #hashtag will help you. Post routinely every week. Slowly but sure people will notice you. (Other tips, click here)
Then, don’t forget to have:
Attitude here is how you respond to your followers and your partners.
Engagement is very important. You don’t have to reply all your followers, but manage some times to really connect with them.
They will happy and continue to support you.
To respond to the brands that offer you less than what you expect, or brands that push you with so many responsibilities to do… Be calm and open for discussion/negotiation.
Don’t be rude. Do not forget to reply them.
Points out what you expect, and find the win-win solution. If there’s not possible, you can reject the collaboration politely so you don’t close your future deals ☺️
If you’re about to start, please do not randomly send email begging for collaboration. It will decrease your e-value 🙂
Professionalism here is to your brands and followers and to yourself.
To brands: do not neglect the deadline. Once you agree to collabs with them, you have to follow closely and make them happy. Happy customers mean repeated future deals! Without partners, you are out of business.
To followers: always be honest with your review. Don’t just sugar coating everything. You must tell the downside without offending the brand. They will happy to read your review and give it a try. Without followers, you are out of business.
To yourself: don’t be blind by the world and thinking to achieve many by lowering your standard. Always take authentic products for safety, for dignity. Pose not to get those dirty minds keep following you, pose to your value. Bikini in a beach, why not? Bikini in a room with naughty face look? Are you promoting bikini or porn magz? Think about that ☺️
Professional to ourselves also mean that regardless how high/low your actual insights, you still work hard and do your best, not by buying to boost them.
I know you can still buy followers and likes, but will you be happy lying to yourself for the rest of it? That your achievement is actually nothing but the lie.
And one day, soon enough, those who work hard will eventually reap and those who get everything in instant will be forgotten.
Because many have proven that hard work don’t lie.
Do you know that a year ago i joined an endorsement management? So this so called management handle quite a lot influencers and i after joining i found out that they sent followers and likers to boost their influencers. Not only that, they also sent followers and likers to all the clients who use their agency. I asked them politely and told them it lowering my worth. They really angry but i don’t care, i quite at that moment. I want my achievement to be real. Call me stupid, but I don’t want to give people reason to make rumour. So i gotta be very careful and real about it.
If you meet new people and make friends a long the way, always remember that God has already assign portion to each and every one of us. You don’t need to be afraid that one will steal from you and you spread rumours and backstab to gain personal profit.
Just be kind and support one another, then your blessings will be doubled! Trust me.
Backstabbing and dramas will shorten “your life”.
That’s all from me.
