Meet @fashionfriesx – one of 260 people that participated in our recent global campaign with Polaroid Eyewear.
Alright let's get started, Morgan. Can you tell us a little bit about yourself?
My name is Morgan, I'm 30 years old and work as a administrative assistant in finance at an investment bank!
Cool, where do you live, Morgan?
New York, NY
So, you’ve a lot of followers on Instagram with exceptionally high engagement, how did that happen?
I post a lot of new content for my followers & stay up to date with the latest trends and I think that attracts readers.
Besides Instagram, where else can people find you online?
Now, with a growing fan base and high quality content you're on a really great trajectory. But what's your goal (or dream even) say, in a year from now? Where would you want to be?
Being a fashion and lifestyle blogger as my main source of income!
That sounds so exciting! What's your favourite brand that you follow on Instagram?
Sweet! Speaking of brands and Instagram, how many brands are contacting you for collaborations each month?
Congrats, that's amazing and quickly adds up to alot of opportunities this year. With that many brands reaching out to you, what’s your #1 advice for brands that are looking to run brand marketing campaigns with online content creators and influencers like yourself?
Be nice and flexible!
And what are your thoughts about brands that are contacting you to do work for them without any compensation (just free products)?
It's not right. It's like asking someone to advertise just for free. We put a lot of hard work and money for photographers, etc. into each photo, so it's only fair to pay us.
On the topic of compensation and disclosure, how is your audience reacting to #sponsored posts?
They seem to like them a lot.
What’s your #1 advice for other digital creators like yourself that are looking to run successful brand collaborations?
Only work with brands that you truly love!
Final question about brand collaborations then: The Brands that you are choosing to work with – What are the main factors when you choose to collaborate with a brand?
They are quality brands whose clothing I actually would buy myself.
You recently participated in one of our campaigns with Polaroid Eyewear along with 260 other people. How did this campaign differ from other collaborations you have done or seen others do and why?
It was ran really well. I liked that the details were clear and sent to us so we knew exactly what to do.
And what's it like working with Relatable?
Great. I would love to work with them again in the future. I don't see any improvements that I can think of. They are different because they seem more organized!
That's lovely to hear! Final question – If you could have dinner with anyone dead or alive, who would it be?
Thank you Morgan! Anything else you'd like to say?
I would love to work with them again!
