Meet Faith: the Student turned social media business woman.

Q: How can a communication student start a brand for themselves via social media/blogging/YouTube?


‘Starting your own business is extremely exciting but it’s also very competitive!  In my own experience, the key to starting your business online is understanding what your niche is. Do your research on what the industry requires and try to aim for that expectation. If it’s Instagram: Learn how to edit – understand that good photography doesn’t only mean having the most expensive equipment but utilizing what you already have. Position yourself where you network with similar people who have the same interest as you. Start a group – work and grow together!  Most importantly work as hard as you can – If you are a full-time student like myself prioritize your time. Do not feel unmotivated if you don’t see any growth. Remember it takes time and patience! I promise you’ll see the result! ‘
