Interview With The Beauty Influencer And charming Lady: Chelsea Erving
1- How did you get your begining as an influencer?
I started off just discovering getting freebies from brands, but once I really started putting in effort on my content and receiving beauty products, I knew I could take it to the next level!
2- How does your creative approch change from one social media platform to another?
So I mostly just use instagram but recently started a blog that I hope to start doing collaborations on more! With instagram, I try to just display a beautiful creative but minimal content shot and a review of the product and rundown of the brand!
3- Why do you think your work garnered a positive reception from your followers?
I give honest reviews on my experience with the product and I take time in creating my content!
4- Have any tactics been especialy effective in helping you grow your audience?
I try my best to interact with followers and even others on instagram to create new connections. I have hosted a lot of giveaways as well and have gained loyal followers who genuinely love my content after discovering it via giveaway!
5- How would you say your content has changed since you started?
I have become a lot more picky in my content, photo wise, I always want a certain lighting and display of the products. At the beginning, I was pretty novice to taking product shots!
6- What type of content does well on Instagram but don’t on other platform?
I’d say giveaways!
7- What kind of struggles are often not talked about around being an influencer?
Sometimes I don’t think certain brands and people understand the effort and time we put into creating our content.
8- What is the most rewarding part of being one?
The most rewarding parts of being an influencer is having brands and followers genuinely admire and compliment your efforts in the content you create! As I am a beauty influencer, it makes me so happy knowing I have women who really take my word and reviews, and look to me for advice and suggestions on products!
9- Where do you see yourself in the next 5 years?
In the next 5 years, I would still love to be doing what I am doing, with even more fun content, I am hoping to get into adding high quality video content, and I would absolutely love to get out more locally in the Metro Detroit area and connect with other influencers and brands! Hopefully even nationally making it to big beauty events!
10- A final thoughts?
As a stay at home mother of 2 girls and a wife to a hard working husband, I often have felt over the years like I lose myself and don’t focus on things that make me happy. Influencing has changed this a lot! I can work from home on something I truly love and enjoy, that helps my confidence, and makes me feel apart of something!
