Tips on How to Support Your Content Creator Friends
Let’s talk about something I like to call “Private Praise”
Private Praise is the act of celebrating your friend’s wins/hustle (IRL or otherwise) in a private manner in lieu of public or actionable support.
WE (dare I speak for myself and others), appreciate and are encouraged by the private text, phone calls, and screenshots highlighting our work. But WE would also appreciate you #PullingUp on our platforms. Nothing crazy! If you see something fiyah or informative (in addition to reaching out privately), consider dropping a comment, hitting the like button and/or sharing with your networks.
*Back to speaking for myself* A high engagement rate is one of the ways I demonstrate my value to a brand in hopes of securing partnerships. To a brand, a high engagement rate means a high ROI. Unfortunately, I can’t make use of private praise to close a deal.
Your support is invaluable and could definitely help sis secure a bag! #LevelUp
