Who would have ever thought that people would be able to use a social network to travel, market business and make money…

Can you tell us a little about your life as a social media influencer as well as a mix of everything else you do?

I am an actress, television host, personal trainer and travel blogger. Luckily these passions of mine all work very nicely together. I have travelled the world hosting, acting and also through my social media accounts @interiorselfie and @brookechamberlain_ . I have stayed in the most luxurious resorts and worked with some of the top hotels around the world. I have been treated like royalty and sometimes I have to pinch myself and ask, “is this even real?”. It all started with a dream to travel freely around the world and after years of being consistent to my dream it all paid off.

When did you start your Instagram? And when did you see a growth start?

I started it about 5 years ago and the growth was steady but after a year into building @interiorselfie it really started to boom. At one point it grew a thousand followers per day, it was crazy.

What is the best free thing you have ever received?

Definitely free travel. Nothing beats an experience.

What opportunities have you had through social media marketing that you wouldn’t have otherwise had?

Staying in these luxurious hotels that are minimum $1000 per night.

Why do you think you attract your following?

People love to be inspired, whether its in design, travel, fitness or fashion. Interiorselfie shares the most incredible destinations and designs from around the world.

What advice would you give to other women trying to grow a following?

Look for something you are passionate in and that people want. Inspire them, be consistent and make sure you are posting quality content.

What are your top 3 tips for Instagram users for 2018?

  1. Respond to each comment
  2. Be consistent and post good quality pictures
  3. Stay up to date with your Instagram stories

What apps can’t you live without?

Snap seed. It’s great for brightening your photos and my absolute favourite.

What is the most random thing you have been asked to post? (Keep it clean)

I got a mattress sent to me once and it’s the comfiest mattress I’ve ever had!
