From Hundreds to Thousands : Hundreds of Thousands to Millions
First of all I want to say I am not a big shot blogger, I am just sharing how I run my business and how I have made a career of it.
Referencing back to the prior post, when I realized I had a larger audience than I thought. I remember when I got insights on instagram this is a screenshot of one of the first times I looked at it and found out that I had over 1,000,000 views on my instagram page in just 7! days again I don’t have great engagement on my photos, my likes are low and so are my comments so seeing that I had a million people on my profile that week was huge news to me. Its because of all of you so thank you truely for caring and sticking with me through my life journey.
*this was last year
I took a screenshot for the presentation of my stats on a pic I posted on Wednesday
If you see above on the pic, I had about triple the amount of my “followers” seeing my picture on Wednesday. Companies have thankfully gotten so savvy and now use your insights to determine how much they pay instagrammers/bloggers.
Compare the above video to what I used to send companies in the stone ages (2 years ago)
I would send a media kit and my own pricing sheet. Its gotten so much more honest for both bloggers and paying companies.
There is so much more I discussed within my presentation, the main gist was just showing the business side of it all, after all it is career day, and hopefully this helps those who are thinking about becoming a blogger/instagrammer or for those of you looking to hire bloggers. To know what to look for, and to not take anything at face value. Like my husband has been telling me its about whats inside that counts.
Again I am far from a pro at this blogging business, but I can honestly stand before everyone today and say that I am an open book, I love my family, what I do and I am beyond thankful for this platform as it has been the biggest learning experience of my life. I have grown so much since I started, not talking followers, just as a human, my family has grown, my understanding and my compassion towards others.
If you have any advice or questions let me know.
