I’ve been wanting to write this post for a while as I’ve spoken about it in real life but don’t know how to actually put it into a caption ✏️
I am so so proud to work with the brands & companies I do on here & as a presenter. I never try to hide what I’m paid for because I only work with brands I love & want to scream & shout about. Every collaboration takes a huge amount of time & work. I’m a whole production company in one, I come up with the ideas, I film them, I‘m in the videos, I edit them, I write all the copy to go with them & I’m my own PR/marketing team. -
The CEO of British Airways is working hard every single day but unlike some of my work, it’s not a visible ‘paid partnership’ where you can see their ‘success’ in likes & followers. I’ve done so many jobs since I was 14, some paid, some not but I’ve never had to show I’m getting money for my time & work, people have just assumed, because it’s a job.
Instagram & social media as a whole is still very new, I’ve been using it properly now for work for the last 2 years but we’re all making it up as we go along. But there’s also a lot that goes on behind the scenes with my incredible management team @84world_ ❤️🧡💛 Every single person in this world is an ‘influencer’, the guy who I held the lift door open for this morning; his smile had an influence on me, the gorgeous little baby who sat on her mums lap on the tube; her non stop giggling made my day... If anything I want to be seen as a role model, an older sister figure.
So next time you see a paid partnership that you believe in, support it, these campaigns take more hard work than some people think. Super open to discussion, let’s get talking 🚀
