We’re excited to introduce you to the always interesting and insightful Gabrielle Rene. We hope you’ll enjoy our conversation with Gabrielle below.
Gabrielle, looking forward to hearing all of your stories today. Are you able to earn a full-time living from your creative work? If so, can you walk us through your journey and how you made it happen?
Scaling my personal social media channels has given me the ability to showcase my work in live time. Creating a digital portfolio for brands and other creators alike to reference. If I had known that power before starting this process, I would have focused less on presenting a formal portfolio and letting my personality and own platforms speak for themselves. They have the true ability to attract the right kind of clientele.
Gabrielle, before we move on to more of these sorts of questions, can you take some time to bring our readers up to speed on you and what you do?
I am a small business owner in the social media sphere that is not limited to influencer events, photography, influencer management, brand management, and coaching. I spent my first year of working fully for myself while traveling the country doing van life by myself! It was only then I really learned of my own abilities and where I felt I could help in the social media and marketing sphere the most!
We’d love to hear the story of how you built up your social media audience?
I truly feel authenticity and connection are key in growing a following. Just be genuine, people sniff out someone searching for followers. I only reach out to and connect with people I have a genuine interest in who they are or what they are creating. You are creating a community not a following and when you really lean into that difference, your social will skyrocket.
What do you find most rewarding about being a creative?
Watching people be happy with what I have provided, whether it is photography clients happy with their photos, influencers hitting a goal that I have coached on their engagement, or event a brand finally seeing an increase in brand awareness from their new audiences. Results are what I live for.
