Turning 26 is a blessing! I thank God for growth, strive, passion, PURPOSE, love, focus and everything he’s given me. I brought it in with family, friends, great food, good drinks, laughter, fun and bomb looks. I chose to put together Fashionnova pieces because the price range and style are usually on point. I posted each look on my Instagram and even shared links of certain peices with people to purchase. My question is this: no matter how well known your business is, wouldn’t you want to acknowledge your supporters?
Before I go into my point, I want to clarify that this is not a bashing post. I just want to put the lime light on what some businesses fail to do and recognize. Ok, SO... attached to my huge package was a card that instructs the customer to post and tag or email the company pictures to be featured on their page. Listen, I took some bomb photos so you already know I sent them in just KNOWING that they’d love the photos just as much as I do. Instead, I was told that they weren’t looking for any new “collaborations” but they’ll keep me in mind and later commented under my photo “Hottie.” Am I dumb? 1. I’m not a model so my intent was never based on wanting to collaborate lol and 2. Fashionnova always needs features for consistent promotion. Wassup with that?
As a future business owner, this is something I’m totally against because EVERY client should feel appreciated. Today, a following on Instagram seems to define a person and sometimes no credit is given to where it is due. My Instagram promotes style and self love. I take a lot of pride in that. This has pushed me to continue to build my brand so I can get into the position of providing a platform for passionate people like myself opposed to depending on pages that tend to overlook “the little people.”
The comment was cute tho.
