Yesterday’s BeautyCon event was such a blast!!! The event was completely sold out with lines of people trying to get into the doors. I was so thrilled when BeautyCon asked me to be on their “Instagram famous” panel which gave me the opportunity to speak with Spaz fans and BeautyCon attendees about using social media to drive their business.
My Instagram has definitely played a key role in shaping my career! Never in a million years did I think a social media platform would help me build a brand/blog. For me, Instagram started as a fun social media platform where I shared personal and irrelevant pictures. Once I started taking my blog seriously, I started to see Instagram as a popular platform to help get my name out there.
My advice if you’re starting a new business and/or trying to increase your followers on a social media platform like Instagram- Take every picture you post seriously, be patient, and don’t lose your style/voice! It’s okay to mix a little bit of pleasure with business (being personal is good!), but I’ve found out that if you’re consistent with what you’re posting, brands and business professionals will take you more seriously. In other words, what are you trying to get recognized for? Be unique. Be YOU.
Thank you to everyone who came out! This was my first meet and greet slash speaking on a panel and I was a bit nervous at first but it ended up being super spazzztastic! I appreciate everyone’s support, especially all my followers online. I wouldn’t be growing in doing what I love without the sweet people who support my blog everyday.
Okay enough with the cheesy. I will be posting details on this outfit sometime this week (hopefully tomorrow!) By the way, it was kinda crazy and surreal walking the carpet with all the paparazzi snapping pics and doing interviews. Usually I’m the one interviewing people coming down the red carpets. ha! It was definitely fun getting to play the other side.
Have a great week guys!
