-Work with small shops to start building relationships and offer product reviews or collabs such as promoting in exchange for product or hosting a giveaway with them. I started working with small shops when Ainsley was born! She quickly became a brand rep for numerous shops and that also helped me to grow because I got to know other brand rep mamas! When you work with small shops you both post that shop’s product. You are promoted on their shop page and they are promoted on your Instagram page! ( this tip was huge for me from the beginning)- When working with small shops the opportunity for giveaways is a plus! You post the giveaway to your feed and that small shop posts the giveaway to their feed! Yes, you may only gain accounts who are in it for the free products but that isn’t always the case.
The truth is: not every single one of my days is photo-worthy, so I take advantage of the ones that are! It has helped me to post quality photos each day rather than racing to find something cool to photograph so I can get something up.”
