Networking is a vital part of being an online influencer. Every event you attend can be an opportunity to talk to those in the industry. I am a huge fan of Generation Beauty but not because of all the freebies we get. I attend to talk to beauty brand representatives and give them my elevator pitch, in hopes of one day working with them. YouTube is a huge business and if you want to become an online influencer, you need to treat it as such. As a small influencer, I don’t have a team that is going to assist me in making my dream come true. I’m a go-getter and not having a manager, isn’t going to stop me from chasing after those dream collaborations. Remember that you can tax this as a business expense. Before heading to Generation Beauty, I make sure to prepare and check to see who will be at the convention.
Generation Beauty is hosted in several cities in the United States and recently in Toronto, Canada.
