Hello guys and welcome back again to another week of Expression Through style, if you are new to my blog a very special welcome to you.
My goal here at Style Medium is to help you express yourself through your style. I do this by giving you styling tips, outfit ideas and latest trends. I also use the medium of fashion and style to tell stories and inspire you to be the best you!
On this week's episode of self expression through the medium of style I show you how I style a monochromatic outfit, and I also want to talk about how we measure success. Leggo x
One of the most frustrating things as a content creator or even a creative person in general is measuring success, what is your yard stick? For example as a creator of content for fashion, beauty , lifestyle etc success could be measured by working with brands, getting invited to star-studded events, followers, GETTING PAID!!!
DEAR BRANDS AND COMPANIES FREE PRODUCTS DO NOT PAY OUR BILLS!!!
However what if you are doing everything right but not seeing the results listed above, does that mean you are not successful? Well this is where I am at currently. I feel like I am doing everything I am supposed to be doing but where are the followers, where are more brands not reaching out?
So I have decided to measure success in a different way, which is what I also want to encourage you to do. I have not worked everything out yet but for instance instead of measuring success by the amount of followers on my social media platforms I am going to measure it by influence.
YOU CAN HAVE A LARGE FOLLOWING WITHOUT INFLUENCE BUT ONCE YOU HAVE INFLUENCE THE FOLLOWING IS INEVITABLE
For example a brand might not choose to work with me because of my following count, however when I get messages from people or they tell me things like "I did not know how to style this or that until I saw your blog post" or "I go to your instapage for outfit inspirations" to me that is influence and I in-turn wait patiently for the follower count to increase.
I CHOOSE INFLUENCE OVER FAME AND DORMANT FOLLOWERS
That is all I have for you today, let me know in the comments what you think of this look and also how to do you measure success?
