Instagram Content Ideas

I know a lot of my fellow bloggers struggle coming up with content to post, so I wanted to make a “content bingo” for my style/lifestyle blogger friends.

Make sure to screenshot this for ideas on what to post! If you know of anyone who else who could use this make sure to send it their way too!

My Everyday Makeup

I always get questions on what products I use for my makeup routine. I use a mix of high end and drugstore products, which I love! I do have eyelash extensions which helps cut down on the time and I also save on mascara, I don’t go through tubes fast.

I use a lot of Charlotte Tilbury products, they are definitely a favorite of mine! I think the quality is amazing.

How To Deal With People

This one was hard to title. One thing about putting little parts of your life on social media and the internet is you never know who is watching. It is probably my least favorite part. Occasionally I will get a rude comment here or there but I also get people who just want to creep.

The creeps are the worst. I hate seeing people looking at my stuff who are not looking with positive intentions. Anyone who creates a fake account for the purpose of looking at your stuff needs some serious help! Especially when it comes to my blog. My blog is a place for me to really talk about the things I like and things that I don’t necessarily put on Instagram. I first started a blog when I was in middle school. Nobody ever read it and it was basically like having an online diary. Now I have more of an audience and I have to be more careful about what it is that I’m posting.

Dating someone and having their exes like to look at my stuff will never not be beyond weird! Or someone who knows someone I know but doesn’t personally know me but just wants to look at my stuff…will never stop being strange to me.

If you feel compelled to keep track of people constantly that you don’t even know, I feel like it’s time to evaluate your own life. It’s still hard not to let it bother me. Thankfully the majority of my followers follow me because they like my style and product recommendations, or they are just other bloggers that are super supportive.

It got me thinking about who it is that supports our content. The other day on my stories I asked my fellow bloggers if they felt supported by the people in their life and if not who. It made me sad to see how many people said their partners, partners families and their friends didn’t support them. A lot of people could relate to it. My mom and friends have always been supportive of me and think that I work so hard on my content. Then there are other people who don’t understand and think it’s not a “real job” or like to make fun of it. It definitely hurts not getting that support and I know a lot of people give up on blogging because of it.

I like being able to tell the women who need it that if they don’t have a single person in their life who is supporting them, me and so many other women will be there to cheer them on. That is what I’ve found in my community. I have made great friends because of it. So it’s not just a job, it’s so much more.

How To Cope With Anxiety

Anxiety is something I have had for as long as I can remember, when I was a freshman in high school I finally had a name for the feeling. It wasn’t commonly talked about before that. Everyone who has anxiety has a different kind of anxiety, and it can manifest itself in different ways.

I have general anxiety and also social anxiety. When I go out I get easily overwhelmed. I get really bad sensory overload especially in places that are loud with a lot of people and a lot going on. By the end of the night I’m always exhausted. I have also been told I look unhappy, because I’m so in my head in the moment. I always worry about coming off as rude because I get quiet while trying to work through it.

The anxiety can manifest itself as bad physical symptoms as well which is always hard. I know a lot of people can relate to this.

I have a few ways that I cope with it. First, I take supplements for anxiety. There are a ton of good herbal options that you can get from Sprouts or Whole Foods. Second, I use breathing and meditation to try to calm down the feeling. There are so many great exercises such as tapping, yoga breathing, and other similar methods for relaxation. Last, I honestly like watching TV or reading a good book. Anything that is super distracting to the brain.

You aren’t alone if you struggle with this. Sometimes life also throws a lot at us and it may feel completely overwhelming at times. This last month has been the hardest in my life. Some days I have a hard time just leaving the house, but everyday I work on it. It just takes time.

How To Work With Brands

How to work with companies as an influencer/blogger?! I love teaching this to bloggers. I coach and I also have an ebook on this topic!

First, I would say to make sure to interact with them on Instagram. Companies want to see that you have a genuine love for the company! This will help get you noticed.

Next, have a pitch ready for them! I like to have a general email that I can switch up depending on the company, and add in personal touches to.

Last, have an Instagram that is business friendly! Be professional, and have a great aesthetic. This draws companies to you, which is how I get a ton of my collaborations.

These are just a couple simple tips to get you started. If you are serious about growing your page and turning it into a business I highly recommend grabbing the ebook!

How To Grow and Make Money on LIKEtoKNOW.it

This post is for all of my blogger/influencer friends who are struggling to make money on LIKEtoKNOW.it. I struggled with it for a long time when I first started and in the past year have really just started changing what it is that I do to make money off of the app.

The one thing that actually really started to change the game for me was to post everything on Pinterest. Pinterest is so underutilized and I hardly used it for a long time. I have realized the more consistent I am with it the more views I am getting every month and it just keeps growing.

I also use searchable keywords for people that are shopping the app. This helps me so much! I also post some of them to my social media but I don’t want to overwhelm my followers with tons of graphics and things like that.

Growing on LIKEtoKNOW.it is hard, I have found success in growing by staying consistent and using incentives for people to follow me on there.

I have learned that just being extremely consistent and posting to the app at least 5 times a day is really what will help you generate money and really maximize the app.

I hope these couple tips helped you if you are struggling with seeing return on the app. It is very competitive but it is possible to make money off of LIKEtoKNOW.it.

Side Hustle Ideas 2021

There is no better time to start a side hustle then now! I myself have a bunch of side hustles. In fact some would consider my job a side hustle! Depending on how much time you have, I have made a list of some great side hustles to make more money this year.

First one is blogging! This is my full time job. I work as an influencer/blogger. You can make money through affiliate marketing, paid collabs’s and some other ways! I also coach women how to do this which is part of my side hustle!

Become a tutor/teacher. There are tons of ways to do this! I know people who work for VIP Kid and love it. You can pick what hours you work. This one you must have a degree but it doesn’t have to be in teaching.

Selling old items or things you just don’t need anymore. I sell my clothes and tons of other stuff. I love clearing out my closet and room because as a blogger I receive free items and also shop a lot.

Find a passion and make money off of it. What are you passionate about? Or what are you good at? How can you turn it into a side hustle? I personally have horses and use that on the side!

An ebook is a great way to make more money! I have an ebook on how to grow your Instagram to 10K and work with companies! Here is the link for the ebook.

You can also have additional digital products to sell based off of your knowledge! I have one of these also and priced it to sell! Link to my content planner.

I hope you found this post helpful! Follow me for weekly blog posts.

A Day In The Life Of A Full Time Blogger

Welcome or welcome back to the blog! For those of you who don’t know my name is Chloe, I am an Arizona based blogger and influencer. This is my full time job and I love it! I am also trying to get into real estate but that is another topic for another day.

I wanted to go through what some of my days are like working as a blogger! It is a super misunderstood job and most people have ideas about what it may be like vs what it is really like.

My day usually starts out waking up between 6:15 and 7. I don’t set an alarm this is just when I naturally wake up. I start by checking my email and seeing if I have gotten any messages from brands. I get tons of emails every day and try to be really good about keeping track of them!

I then move on to engagement on Instagram. I like to make sure I respond to all of my comments and DMs that I haven’t gotten to yet.

I usually get up and get ready for my day after that. I like to take a little time to meditate and prepare myself for the day. I also make sure to eat breakfast, because I know I won’t feel good if I skip it. After I’ve gotten ready I spend some time working on graphics on Canva. I run multiple accounts so I like to make sure I have lots of content for each account. I also create my LIKEtoKNOW.it graphics and see what clothing is new and what’s on sale that I think my audience will love. I then share it to Instagram and also Pinterest!

I have been trying to get in at home workouts but that doesn’t always happen, I need to get better about it. I like to take little breaks throughout the afternoon because being on your phone and computer for so long is draining. I catch up on shows I have missed while I have lunch and read some of the book I review for the book of the month!

I like to take time to research trends and things I can use to increase my visibility online. I am constantly working on bettering my content and overcoming the algorithm! I also like to make a list of potential collaborations and send out pitch emails around this time.

In the early to late afternoon I do my post for the day. I don’t plan posts so I have to make sure I am available for at least an hour around that time to ensure that, that post is successful!

I usually work on a blog post or do research for an upcoming blog post to round out my day. I do keep engaging and responding to comments and DMs until usually I go to bed.

I also have content shoot days which are a little different! For those I pack a bag of things I have received from companies or that I have purchased that I think people will like. I meet up with a blogger friend and we shoot at a designated location for the day. This usually takes a couple hours at least and then I go home and review, delete and edit all of the photos that I took for the day.

One thing I love about blogging is that every day is different and that is part of the fun! I am never bored and I am always thankful I am not sitting at a desk in an office I hate.

Favorite Makeup Products

I have always gotten a lot of questions about the makeup I use, and even though it has changed here and here throughout the years some things stay the same!

I will be showing off and linking all of my everyday products. This post will be my full face of makeup. The only thing I didn’t include was how I apply it. I use a beauty sponge and very simple brushes!

Here are all of the products I use on pretty much a daily basis! I start off with my favorite primer by Tula before I apply my foundation and concealer. This primer is seriously amazing and if you order it off of their website you can use my code 15Chloe for a discount on your first purchase.

I used to only use the Tarte Shape Tape but now I use the E.L.F. Camo concealer. I think it works just as well at a lower price point! I then go in with my Urban Decay foundation which has been one of my all time favorites since I was in high school!

I love all things Charlotte Tilbury and if I could use pretty much all Charlotte I would! A lot of my go to products are by her.

I use mostly high end but I have a couple E.L.F products that do a great job and I really like those ones!

I will link my LIKEtoKNOW.it if you want to shop any of these items!
