Welcome to a new appointment with Popular Chips’ Influencers interviews. Today we are in the company of the beautiful and talented Danielle Ruiz, a TV Host and Model based in Los Angeles. Please find some quick stats about @_danielleruiz and her full interview just below.
Describe your Instagram profile, what you post and why.
A lot of swimwear photos and work photo shoots. I travel a lot for work as well, so you might catch a glimpse of me in South Africa, Haiti even Jamaica.
Did you start with the purpose to make it into a job or did it start as a passion that became a job?
It was a passion that turned into more.
How long did it take to you to make your first 10,000 followers? Was it a difficult process?
No, it kinda of just happened!
What kind of people do you follow on Instagram? Celebrities, Brands, other influencers, fans?
I follow friends, swimsuit companies and makeup artists… maybe a few hot guy babes in there 😉
I don’t spend time going on a page unless they come up on my feed. That would take up so much time. I have my own social media to take care of.
How often do you publish sponsored posts commissioned by brands? How do you think your audience reacts to sponsored posts?
I do from time to time only if i believe in the product. A lot of swimwear and anything health related. Something positive and active. I feel I have a very positive page of followers. I haven’t had much of any negative feedback since I started on Instagram. Love them all!
Have you ever accepted to publish a sponsored post for a brand without being paid? If so, please describe your experience.
I have a couple times and it was for a charity or good cause.
What do you think about the recent changes to Instagram feed and the relevance that Videos are assuming?
I hate the new Instagram feed. It lowers “likes” unless they change their settings. So you arent the latest profile page to come up.
