    Thank you for the good advice. I have found some ideas and I want to realize them. It’s true that at the beginning of the journey it’s very difficult and sometimes I want to quit, your article gave me support. Thanks!

    Wow, the first blog I ever actually read through entirely. I can just feel your energy through your words. I found myself giggling when you wrote “lol” and smiling other times. Thank you for sharing your wisdom. You are goals! Haha.

    I’ve had a personal Instagram account for a few years, but recently started one dedicated to my journey of mountain biking in all 50 states before I turn 30! I don’t come from a family with a lot of money, and I’m a teen (so there’s obviously not a ton of cash flow there either 😛 ). It is a big goal of mine to gain enough followers that brands would want to collab with me, but I don’t see that happening very soon. I’ve started a blog & debated starting a YouTube channel, but not much is happening! Any suggestions?

    • Amanda says:

      Hey Cammie,
      That’s an amazing goal! I’d focus on liking/following/interacting with other accounts in your niche at the beginning! Find your community online and participate!! Also, make sure your images are eye-catching and try to add value in your captions…remember to make it about your audience not you! What can you offer them? Maybe great biking or travel tips? And of course, use related hashtags wisely!
      Good luck!!

    Hi Amanda
    I’m launching a new business soon, selling artisan fudge. Really appreciate the advice in your article as I’m not one of those people who are into social media so it is a steep learning curve but I know I have to bite the bullet and dive into using social media to promote myself. I would love to work with some foodie influencers but not sure where to start.

    • Amanda says:

      Hi, I would start by working on your own account. Make sure it’s professional and that’s it clear what you are all about. Post regularly and start being social. Engage on other people’s accounts. Find influencers in your niche using hashtags or seeing who other people follow. Don’t be afraid to say hi, it’s “social” media after all!


    It’s a very good advice. I really appreciate this.
