As a travel blogger I love to write about my travel experiences and share my personal pictures and tips on this website and social media accounts.
Next to that I am a content creator, online marketeer and PR/social media manager who has set up social media accounts and done campaigns for several companies, brands and online travel agencies already as a freelancer for my own company:
Authentic Chic Travel and Lifestyle – PR & Marketing
I really enjoy social media and especially Instagram a lot. Therefore I also share social media tips on this site to help others have more fun with it and advise them how to set up and grow their accounts through my experiences and lessons learnt over the past years!
You can find me on the following platforms already:
I hope my social media tips will help you grow, but of course the secret to success is also the right implementation of these tips and working with a clear concept in mind.
If you need more help with developing your concept, finding your niche and target group, setting up your account correctly and implementing these tips, you can always contact me directly by mail:
Since I created this website in June 2015 I had the honour to write for several other sites already, either through collabs, interviews, but also through several guest blog posts. And I have done various social media campaigns, competitions, Instagram take-overs and consultancy for different hotels and brands to help them grow their social media accounts.
