Instagram is no longer what it used to be. Behind many recommendations are easy to buy words. Orientation in the world is sometimes complicated. And in this virtual a little more. Sometimes it is too colored, other times it is white and white.
Advertising appears to us from every side. Whether it is through the media, newspapers, radio or influencers through social networks. Instagram became a great earning tool for many companies a few years ago. Influencers work on a daily basis and the money some companies offer them is often unused.
But how amazing are the products that influencers influence the top? Erika has shown that not everything is as it seems on social networks. Do not trust everyone who tries to sell a product on Instagram, because they got a lot of money for those nice words, so you think the product they praise so much is really good.
He does not lose himself and adheres to his values
Blogger Erika Mokri, who has a profile called tak_trochu_inak, decided to share with her fans a story that probably affects everyone, whether they are influential people who receive offers and collaboration every day, or people who buy a product based on such a promotion. .
Erika went through the most difficult period in her life, which is now associated with the most beautiful. She has won the battle against breast cancer and is currently looking forward to a new addition to the family. Recently she even won the crown, so fate gave her a lot.
However, she adheres to her values and, of course, it is a great self-denial to say NO to the cooperation, for which they offer you several thousand euros, she succeeded.
She added a photo where she talks about her experience, when despite the big commission for product promotion, she decided not to accept this offer. She explained why she did it in a post below the photo.
“Something very strange happened to me and I do not regret it. Although someone else might say they should. Well, I see it, again a little differently. A few days ago I received an offer from a cosmetics company. In six months of collaboration, several posts and stories offered me a set of names 3 zeros at the end, not the smallest number at the beginning. It would be enough to introduce you, my dear friends, to take care of your hair with their products„„
She continued: “I refused. Firstly, because I take care of my hair with another brand, which I believed in right after I stopped chemotherapy, and secondly, because the composition of their products is close to me, like bacon like orthodox vegan. “I just do not like it and I do not like it,” she admitted.
She wanted to open people’s eyes with this post. Especially in this period before Christmas, when all the companies are trying very hard to push their products through the influencer and force them to talk about them as the best on the market. Let’s not pretend to be sheep.
“The reason I am writing this to you is not that I want to brag. And it does not even build in a great position. I just want to tell you friends, this virtual world is still just virtual. Behind many recommendations are easy words to buy, sometimes easy, sometimes harder to buy people. It is nice to have a recommendation for the product and it is nice to get a discount. “Believe it or not, not always, it really is” recommended “behind it.”
She did not want to offend anyone with the article, nor to be the captain of this system, which she uses, but she tries to do it with a clear conscience and promotes only products whose quality she really stands for and knows when she talks about them. as the best, so think honestly and test them for yourself.
A similar experience is not just for her, many influencers promote everything just for money. These are mostly beginners who are grateful for any collaboration and the extra money is always worth it.
When it comes to deciding on a person’s character, if you want to deceive people in public, it’s up to you, but Erika wanted to point out that not everything is promoted on social media. You need to be picky, get information and do not trust people who have sold their accounts online for various collaborations only for financial rewards.
Everyone has a price …
It is certainly not easy to say no to a promotion for which you get thousands of euros. One must really have values and self-denial. Erika knows what she believes in and does not forget her values.
“I do not want to hate, I do not want to be negative. I just miss why so many of them have started writing and blogging here before. But now instead of looking at them in the feed, I see a shop window. I am not saying that it is great to support manufacturers, companies and their products. I do this many times. I just love them, because I know them and I stand behind them. I just think it has all its limits. But yes, everyone has value. It is suspicious that … ” further writes in the article.
“Orientation in the world is sometimes complicated. And in this virtual a little more. Sometimes it is exaggerated in color, other times in black and white. And it does not matter how many colors he can recognize. Therefore, I wish you friends so that you can orient yourself in this world. And I wish myself another very common sense. “And thank you to me, the bloggers and influencers who do it with love and respect.”
Therefore, be critical of what you see on the net, what to believe, what can be taken with a grain of salt. For each product promoted by some of the influencers, first do a survey on what substances it contains, where it is made or whether you really need it. Do not be fooled by the pressure on social networks. After all, not all products can be that amazing, can they?
It would be great if celebrities use their name for more useful things, to spread positive thoughts, to motivate them to do better than to promote everything that comes in their mailbox. Of course, you do not have to throw them all in one bag. Many do so honestly and conscientiously. Such is the admiration.
