The Best Spots For Photos in Scottsdale And Phoenix Arizona Part 1

Hi everyone! This is a very requested blog post. I get tons of comments and questions about the best spots in my state. I will share the places I shoot at for my Instagram photos.

First up is Old Town Scottsdale Area! This is a great place for photos. Lots of different places to snap a picture no matter what kind of aesthetic you are going for.

I take photos around the mall as well as over in Old Town. I always get amazing results because there are so many spots!

I wanted to mention the two Airbnb’s I love that are close by to that. Being a blogger they have let me go and take photos there, but they are the cutest places to rent out! They are the Granada Grotto and the Pink Cactus.

Also in Scottsdale I am a big fan of Kierland Commons and Scottsdale Quarter. I frequent both of these places.

We have tons of great restaurant options for photos but that is a whole other blog post! One that is great for photos is the Henry. Also Teaspressa for cute pics and a tea or coffee!

We literally have desert all around us. Taking a photo in the desert is super easy and at golden hour or in the morning is always pretty!

And that’s all for part one…stay tuned for part 2!

New Life Update

Hi everyone! Life has been so crazy lately. I recently started a new job and I am adjusting to blogging and also working. I am in the office Monday Wednesday and Friday now, and it is completely different! I got used to only working from home and for myself. I am now doing social media and online retail for a small business!

I also just had a birthday February 13th! I turned 24 and celebrated by going to brunch with my boyfriend and then we went to happy hour with my best friends!

I have definitely stepped out of my comfort zone which is hard for me to do. I love that I have made some changes and keep on growing! I still plan on expanding my own business and growing that while working part time.

I am also taking coaching clients if you are interested in one on one coaching! For anyone looking for grow their social media and work with brands I help other bloggers step up their Instagram game and land the paid collaborations they are wanting.

What are your big life changes recently?

How To Get More Story Views On Instagram

Like many bloggers and content creators, I can sometimes struggle with getting my content seen. I have been testing out ways to push my Instagram story out to more people. These tips actually really work and it have helped me so much!

1. Post at times when your engagement for your audience is higher. You can click on the live button to see how many people are on Instagram currently, that normally interact with your content.

2. Use up to 10 hashtags and also tag your location. These are pretty basic tips but they do help get your content seen by more people.

3. Wait 12 to 24 hours to post again, to try to boost your content when views are lower.

4. This is the game changer right here…after following those steps put up a poll as your first story. Usually when I get the most views it’s on the weekend when I wait 12 to 24 hours and then post a poll first. Instagram likes when you use their features and this really works!

I hope you found this super helpful and that you try it and it works for you. This has really helped me especially with Instagram testing out some different things. I have seen my engagement as well as many other bloggers engagement, go up and down. Try not to get discouraged and use these tips when you need a boost!

How To Stay Motivated Blogging/On Instagram

This weeks post is a highly requested one. I’ve gotten asked on Instagram many times how I stay motivated to post and to keep creating content. The answer is actually pretty simple…I love it! I genuinely enjoy what I do. I have a great time meeting up with my blogger friends to shoot photos and I have gotten to work with some incredible brands.

Doing what I love motivates me! I know the harder I work and the more consistent I am the more opportunities I get. This job is all about what you make from it. This year has been an extremely hard one. With so many ups and downs this has been consistent for me. I have also been able to grow and get better at what it is that I do.

I have been lucky enough to work with some big brands and gotten chosen for some exciting collabs. Some of my favorite collaborations have been from companies who have reached out to me! They love my page and they pick me to advertise their product and that feels like such an honor.

I got to work with Stella Artois, and they picked me as their micro-influencer for their campaign. That felt absolutely amazing! I had such a great time learning how to work with a bigger company like theirs.

I decided I needed to help other women be able to work with brands and I started my one on one coaching page. I knew that, that wasn’t enough and maybe some people didn’t want one on one so I created an affordable EBook also to help them land paying collabs.

I stay motivated knowing I am making progress and growing. I love to write everything down and to look back and see how far I have come. I consistently add new goals to accomplish and that keeps me motivated.

If you are wanting one on one coaching go to my Instagram page- https://instagram.com/thebusybco

If you just want the EBook- https://gumroad.com/l/YMskz

I hope this helps someone and puts them on a path to success.

How To Work With Brands 101

Are you a blogger or influencer wanting to start getting paid for your social media? Then this post is for you! I wrote an EBook to cover any questions you may have and to help you land your first paid collaboration.

Because of Covid I went full force on social media and really made the most of it. I turned it into my full time job in 2020 and I want to teach other women how to do the same thing! I coach one on one privately and I wanted my class to be even more accessible and affordable!

I also created another EBook at a cheaper price for those starting out and needing advice on growing their following on Instagram.

My Must Have Apps As An Influencer (Blogger)

Hey guys! Welcome back to another blog post. This week I wanted to share the apps that I use as a blogger that I love.

I’m going to start it off with the most obvious ones! The first one is Reward Style (LIKEtoKNOW.it) , if you don’t know what that is, it is an app influencers can use to link items in their photos.

Next, is InShot. This is how I edit any video content that I put up. It is great for making reels or stories!

My most used app for graphics is Canva. I love creating things on Canva, wether it’s for my business or blog. Also Over is a similar app that is great to create on!

Lightroom is the app I use to edit all of my photos. I have also created my own presets on there that I plan to sell in the future.

The last app I use is the Flip app. This is a clothing subscription box. You can earn money and find your favorite influencers on it! If you want to follow me and get $20 off of your box I will link it for you!

I hope you enjoyed this quick little blog post and I hope this helps you if you are looking for some new apps to use.
