Guest Post February | Beauty Influencing 101

Author, Alexa

Being a micro-influencer is not an easy task but it is something that I absolutely love doing. I’ve always loved being in front of the camera and I knew I was made for this. I started my YouTube channel at the end of 2016 and I was not well equipped; all I had was my iPhone 6 and I went for it. I was a little scared because I knew that putting myself out there could be an issue specially with society and I wasn’t ready to be judged to be honest, but so far so good! I recently reached one of my goals of reaching 1K subscribers last month in January and my channel has been slowly growing which I’m very happy about.

The way I manage YouTube is by writing down my video ideas for the week and by keeping up with social media trends. I like to do that because it helps me stay focused and productive, and it also helps me stay on track of everything; I realized doing that has helped my channel grow little by little and I have been getting recognized by different bloggers.

IMG_1833When it comes to promoting myself and my work, Instagram and Twitter are my best friends, I use them all the time and the hashtags are very helpful to put your platform out there, so I make sure I use them. in addition, the tags on YouTube are very helpful as well and it helps you get more views and brings more traffic to your channel. It takes a lot of CONSISTENCY AND DETERMINATION to do all of these things, but nothing is impossible. its all about learning how to be proactive and make things work for you.

In the next 3 years, I see myself doing YouTube full time. Right now, I am working on better quality, getting better equipment and being more consistent with uploading more videos. I also see myself working with brands and different organizations to promote my culture (Garifunas) and the afro Latinos in general. I hope and pray that everything works out for me.

I started blogging as an outlet for all of my passions. I love to write. I'll write about anything — from fashion inspo to DIY'S to skin care to life experiences. This blog is dedicated to that. I want to give the world a piece of my mind. There's so much information out there and a lot of my life that I'd love to share. I wish to share all of my thoughts, fashion & beauty takes, college experiences, and beauty tips. Blogging to me is like any type of stress reliever to you. I feel a sense of energy and happiness after releasing a blog post. That feeling is something I hope everyone can experience.
